Some people wear their heart on their sleeve.
Minister King Shamir Shabazz wears his on his forehead. Right between the eyes. In black beret atop dreadlocks and a black military uniform, he spends most weekdays near City Hall condemning "crackers" and exhorting black passers-by to rise up against their "slavemasters" - and to give him $2 for the party's semi-annual newspaper.
"If you want to stop the revolution, that's what you got to hit," Shabazz said, pointing to the target tattooed onto his forehead. "I fight my oppressor, and I give him the target."
* On whites: "I'm about the total destruction of white people. I'm about the total liberation of black people."
* On Jews: "I don't care how much they try to promote the Jewish Holocaust. The African people have suffered a hell of a cost. . . .
"The only thing the cracker understands is violence," said Shabazz, whose face also bears the tattoos "Freedom" "BPG" (Black Power Gang) and "NBPP" (New Black Panther Party). "The only thing the cracker understands is gunpowder.
"You got to take violence to violence."
