COINTELPRO – How the FBI Sabotaged Black America, A Documentary by Gil Noble

As African Americans of all ages take to the streets in large numbers once again #blacklivesmatter to protest the police murder of Black men (and subsequent cover-up) in places like Ferguson Missouri and New York City, it is instructive to take a look back at why previous black mass movements and leaders went away. What the research shows is that the Black Liberation Movement of the 1960s didn't just go away by itself. It was intentionally destroyed by a very sophisticated counter-insurgency strategy, code name COINTELPRO,  initiated at the highest levels of the US government. The most prominent of the African American leaders like Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., Fred Hampton, Huey P. Newton, Robert F. Williams, Max Stanford, Assata Shakur, and many other leaders of the Black Liberation Movement…

Nina Simone was blunt about hand-wringers advising Black folks to ‘go slow’

Like most sane Black folks, I want Trump and his Republican Klan gone. Yesterday. We didn’t elect him. We are well aware that racism and white supremacy are deeply embedded in this nation’s foundation and we have been fighting against it since the time we were enslaved here, throughout Reconstruction and Jim Crow, and through the duration (ongoing) of the civil rights movement. We have had allies who were, and are, people of other races, and we are cognizant of the fact that unless white folks step up to the plate to correct what they have wrought, we’ll just have to keep on fighting.
