"Burn Baby Burn" Now Name of Black Panther Hot Sauce

Here's the political story of the day of a serious civil rights movement, and famed incident of violence and destruction, turned to triviality, from the Chicago Sun-Times.....

Former Black Panthers to sell hot sauce as fund-raiser

Former Black Panthers are hoping the phrase ''Burn Baby Burn'' will help their nonprofit organization market a new product -- hot sauce.

The Huey P. Newton Foundation, named for the 1960s militant group's co-founder, is seeking to trademark the phrase that for many brings to mind the r1965 Watts Riots in Los Angeles that left more than 30 people dead.

The foundation also plans to produce its own salsa.
