A Communist should have largeness of mind and he should be staunch and active, looking upon the interests of the revolution as his very life and subordinating his personal interests to those of the revolution; always and everywhere he should adhere to principle and wage a tireless struggle against all incorrect ideas and actions, so as to consolidate the collective life of the Party and strengthen the ties between the Party and the masses; he should be more concerned about the Party and the masses than about any private person, and more concerned about others than about himself. Only thus can he be considered a Communist.
"September 9, 1980 issue was the last Black Panther newspaper. Over 500 issues from 1967-1980. The last issue is a collectors item, just as valuable as the first issues. The BPP newspaper in the late 1970s were hard to find. If you didn’t live in the Bay area, the only way was by mail. There were no Panthers standing on corners in the late 1970s.”
