Some material may be inappropriate for persons under age 18. If this were a movie, it would probably be R.

Take control of a group of young and vexed African-Americans from Oakland, California, who sought to better their troubled community while simultaneously fighting against a racist and unjust system.

This is the story of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, a story in which you will make the decisions and possibly alter history.

Expect crude language and 60's slang.

Written for the 2017 Summer Slam Contest.

Forgot to add: 1/8. The tag of staying far, far away could never be more true.

Ha, the Black Panthers were the furthest thing from heroes; they were nothing short of terrorists. Your writing reveals your Communist scum self to be even more ignorant than the Black Panthers.

I don't want to be demeaning, but I found this story boring and something I had to slog through. Once past the long exposition, I starting getting into it, but then it ended abruptly.

This gets a 4/8 from me.

While you are kind of limited in what you can do, given this is an edutainment story, I still would have preferred if you made the exposition dump optional, or handled it a bit differently, such as feeding it to us in small doses.

Was interesting, but pretty short, and given your second chapter is only a few pages long, I'm pretty sure you had intended for this to be much longer.

Gave it a 5/8.
