By Yaël Ossowski | Florida Watchdog

TAMPA— People expecting stiff resistance from the New Black Panther Party at the Republican National Convention in Tampa next week can breathe a sigh of relief.

Speaking exclusively to Florida Watchdog, Michelle Williams, chief of staff for the local chapter of the New Black Panther Partyin Tampa-St. Petersburg, said her group has no more plans to appear alongside Republican delegates at the RNC, Aug. 27-30.

“We were ordered to stand down by our national chairman during the event of the RNC so there is no ruckus,” said Williams. “We’ve told our members to stand down. No uniforms or anything.”

“We don’t have any plans to be anywhere near the RNC,” Williams told Florida Watchdog, adding that she hoped “no would get hurt while protesting.”

That is a very different tone from William’s controversial comments Aug 14 on Black Power Radiowhere she threatened to put feet on the “mother***ing necks” of convention organizers.
