Shaun King: Black Lives Matter is Not a Carbon Copy of Black Panther Party, Our Time is Different

On the 50th anniversary of the Black Panther Party, some are comparing the party to the Black Lives Matter movement. Shaun King, a Black Lives Matter activist and senior justice writer for the New York Daily News, reacts. King has recently spent time with the party’s co-founder, Bobby Seale. "If you look at where we are now versus where the Black Panther Party was at the same time, I think we’re doing well," King says. Still, he notes, "The Black Lives Matter movement is not a carbon copy of what the Black Panther Party did. How we do what we do will be uniquely different. Our time is different."
