You know, it pains me to even have to write this story about yet another one of our prominent black leaders possibly being a member of the fudge community. First there was the revelation a few weaks ago that Malcolm X used to be a male prostitute and enjoyed rubbing talcum powder on old white guys' balls. No homo. Now comes this story via, admittedly, David Horowitz that Huey P Newton might have once fucked Bobby Seale in the ass.
From his essay Black Murder Inc.:
I will never forget standing next to Elaine, as I did months later in growing horror, as she threatened KQED-TV host Bill Schechner over the telephone. "I will kill you motherfucker," she promised him in her machete voice, if he went through with plans to interview the former Panther Chairman, Bobby Seale. Seale had gone into hiding after Huey expelled him from the Party in August. As I learned long afterwards, Seale had been whipped — literally — and then personally sodomized by Huey with such violence that he had to have his anus surgically repaired by a Pacific Heights doctor who was a political supporter of the Panthers. A Party member told me later, "You have to understand, it had nothing to do with sex. It was about power." But in the Panther world, as I also came to learn, nothing was about anything except power.
Now, teh ghey sex, even if it's to prove some kind of point, is still rather teh ghey. I don't know that there's any way that you can shove your schlong up another dude's ass and still call yourself straight. No homo on this whole paragraph, by the way. Also, it's not like Huey just shoved it up in there and was like, "There, I've proved my point." According to this article, Bobby Seale had to go somewhere and have his asshole sewn back together.
