The Black People's Party(BPP) was first a local organization helping unlucky people in the community founded by five young black men; Hakeem Zulu Shabazz, Mutulu Shabazz, Shaka Newton, Mabili Carama, and Rafiki Seale(known as The Proud Five). They helped advocate political consciousness and public control over industries. Thay have brought together the black race and have made every black person help out in the community. The poverty of the black race in Lodamun was increasing and the BPP had to be more national before the black race ran into a dead end wall. The BPP also despise cops patrolling in the ghettos because they were not giving people justice. Police would beat people up, they would arrest wrongly, and they would search things without warrants. One day Mutulu Shabazz was shot 3 times in his back on a undercover drug bust. Mutulu had no drugs and no weapon(more info on Mutulu Shabazz in his bio). This unlawful action led the BPP to be a pro-community police and a self-defensive. The flyers the the BPP posted around ghettos advocated self-defense and community activism which eventually lead to a huge spread in the BPP ideology across Lodamun. The BPP does call themselves a socialist party and has used membership funds and donations to fund extremely needed programs in the community.

Hakeem was the mastermind of the Black People's Party(he thought of the idea). He had the idea after seeing his father people thrown in jail for not letting a cop search his car(which his father never had a trail). He thought the community should do something about the capitalist oppression that kept the black race on the bottem of the social pyramid. The party was only active in the Diorama City area untill Hakeem's un-identical twin brother was shot 3 times in the back by a cop, which sparked the BPP Movement.

Mutulu was the un-identical twin brother of Hakeem Zulu Shabazz. He was shot three times in the back by an undercover cop on a drug bust. The cop shot Mutulu when Mutulu raised his arms up(when the cop demanded) because Mutulu had his black wallet in his left hand. He had his wallet out because he had just got out the local corner store and had just put the extra change in it. The store's camera showed everything in court but the murdering cop only got 2 weeks suspension and 3 weeks of desk work when he came back. That was not what the community wanted to hear. Mutulu's death sparked the urge for a Black Revolution and the BPP was the largest black owned and operated organization so the BPP went national.

Shaka moved to Diorama at the age of 2. Shaka's dad was in the Army and was making sure Shaka was physically fit at a young age. Shaka loved Hakeem's idea of the BPP but has always wanted the BPP to be extremely militant against the capitalist dominated country. After the death of Mutulu, Shaka went around ghetto's looking for any cop to heart black people or disregard their rights. That night Shaka had an illegal gun on him ready to kil a couple cops but Hakeem stopped him and he is now thankful that Hakeem stopped him. He is now the Defense Minister of the BPP.

Mabili moved to Diorama at the age of 5. His mother was a teacher and his father was from the United Tribes of Tukarali. Mabili was home schooled by both his parents. His father was very cultured so Mabili became cultured too. Mabili got involved with the BPP by spreading cultural flyers in the community. He was the main speaker for BPP speeches and is a great artist. After the death of Mutulu, Mabili spray painted Mutulu's face on a wall so the whole community knows that he was killed wrongfully by the cops and at the bottem of the face art it said, "They shot Mutulu, you could be Next". The painting was a big recruitment poster basically. Mabili is currently the Minister of Education and Culture.

Non-Blacks In The BPPEdit
There are many non-blacks in the BPP. These non-blacks believe that blacks are the most oppressed in Lodamun. Non-Blacks in the BPP also like that the BPP stands for all people and also understand there are other non-blacks being treated wrongfully by the police and are not getting a fair trail. The BPP also helps stand up for low working class non-blacks. In the dictionary "Black" means dirty or the black race but many non-blacks in the BPP like thinking "Black" meaning unseen which the Black People's Party can mean the Unseen People's Party due to the BPP's love for the underdog(the unseen) person in society. Everyone still expects the BPP to have the same name so it can make people think about the meaning of a word...
The BPP and ReligionEdit
The BPP's stand on religion is that there should be no state religion. The BPP doesn't advocate a specific religion. Most members during the creation of the party were just spiritual people but Islam in Lodamun is increasing so moany party members tend to accept Islam as their personal religion. The percentages are below:
33% are spiritual
57% are muslims
9% are Christians
The BPP does consider itself to be a militant party but not an agressive militant party. BPP leaders don't advocate getting a gun with black fatigues and marching down a street ready to kill a cop or a crooked politician. The BPP advocates learning about our capititalist enemies, healping out your community, and self-defense from our oppressors. "We don't want to turn our communities into a warzone when they already look like one," says Shaka Newton at the 2262 BPP conference in Norstavan discussing militantcy.
The BPP and Hip-HopEdit
The BPP has extremely advocated socially conscious hip-hop. Every conscious MC has promoted the BPP and also helps raise money for community programs. The BPP has also started the Lodamunian Political Hip-Hop Congress(LPHHC). The LPHHC has award shows for rap artist every year. Most conscious MC's are independent so the BPP has promoted independent conscious hip-hop because of them breaking the chain of corporate control of music.The BPP also makes sure that unheard MC's can get a chance to be heard in the nation by helping them distribute their CD's.
