Black Panther Hot Sauce

Who’d have thought we’d see two articles on this site in the same day that mention the Black Panther Party?

Well, it appears that former party members are working to trademark the slogan “Burn, Baby, Burn” for use on a new hot sauce, salsa, and clothing line.

From WGAL, Channel 8:

Former Black Panthers are hoping the phrase “Burn Baby Burn” will ignite taste buds rather than racial tensions.

They want to trademark the phrase that was born during the 1965 Watts riots in Los Angeles for a new line of hot sauce.

It would be called “Burn Baby Burn: A Taste of the Sixties Revolutionary Hot Sauce.”

David Hilliard, an original member of the militant group, says it’s an effort to raise money and bring attention to the Huey Newton Foundation, which works with at-risk youth.

The foundation also plans to produce its own salsa as well as a clothing line.

Hilliard says they hope to start selling the hot sauce later this year to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Black Panther Party.
