    Online petition demands Winston-Salem remove historic Black Panther Party marker


    An online petition is asking the city of Winston-Salem to remove a historic marker for the city chapter’s of the Black Panther Party — a sign that the petition says honors a racist and violent organization.

    “We the people feel that it is not in the best interest of the city of Winston-Salem or the state of North Carolina to honor such a racist and violent organization,” the petition says.
