COINTELPRO: The FBI's War on Black America
Peace and Blessings Family,
With Cointelpro being an arm of the government, used against us maliciously, can't we get some reparations?!
This video is awesome! Some great footage of Beautiful, Courageous, and Dedicated Black Men & Women!
It shows how they government KILLED any Black person that could rally Black People together.
The video says that one out of four FBI agents were Members of the KKK.
Yet, they were responsible for protecting us while the KKK terrorized us?
Can't we sue or something?
Is Cointelpro still being used?
i do believe that there has been many efforts made by "our" dear government to disallow the ability to actually sue the government for detrimental actions.
while we are thinking along these lines, let us not forget NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL MEMORANDUM-46.
on another hand, those old civics classes that we used to have in high school pointed out that american citizens have a responsibility, even a duty to call them on their bs. as such, the facts that every year there are more and more americans falling farther and farther behind, falling through the cracks and getting kicked to the curb suggests that Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney might have had something when she suggested "It appears to me that the American people might have a criminal syndicate running their government". (if that link to the mp3 is dead, i do have a copy here.) as such, according to that oath i took when i enlisted in the u.s.armed forces to "defend my nation against all enemies, both foreign and domestic", i really should be taking a more active role in asking if we should be considering impeachment, or even <gasp> "treason against the People and Nation of the United States of America"! or even "war crimes against the environment and/or humanity". or <shrug> we could just go back to the game or discussions about the latest fashions or entertainment figures or religion or something.
Can you actually hide an elephant in the closet? The FBI is a huge agency, with offices in hundreds of places, and a diverse force of agents, including many blacks. Now here we go with more government conspiracy theories, without any real names attached to them. Yes the KKK exists, and has many powerful people as members, but they are not a government agency.
If there is or was cointelpro, it's a failure. There are many black leaders out there. Who say's we need only one to unite us? Our problems are too complex for one man or woman to handle. We have thousands of leaders spread out over the country. Since the death of Dr. King, much progress has been made in terms of legislation and programs to help black people. Many get ignored by people who just like to complain.
I've worked with many FBI agents, believe me, they are not that smart.
I cannot agree that cointelpro is a failure.
Too many Black nationalist leaders have been either killed off or character assassinated, and cointelpro went international aiding in the assassinations of Amilcar Cabral, Eduardo Mondlane, Steve Biko, and Patirce Lumumba, along with the overthrow of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah in Ghana.
Cointelpro effectively disrupted the Black Panther Party, Black United front, African Peoples Party, African People's Socialist Party, Black Liberation Army, Black Guerilla Family, National Black Independent Political Party and many others.
The government no longer needs COINTELPRO, for as Fred Hamptom says in the video above, people learn by example.
By example, we have learned to kill our own Black People, in word and deed.
It is now our very own people, that has essentially replaced COINTELPRO, with even our children killing each other.
Let a Black Man or Woman rise to any significant prominence, and it will be Black People that kill them ... by any means necessary ... in word or deed.
This is a recent phenomenon in the community
It was COINTELPRO's plan to get young Black folks to purchase music celebrating the selling of drugs and selling young women into prostitution.
During the end of the Afrocentric period vehemently attacked by COINTELPRO, there were over 15 gangs in NYC and only 5% of the homicides we see today with only 4 Black gangs in NYC.
As stated it was learned behavior at a particular time;
The murder rates,
children selling crack,
families brocken by drugs,
6 thousand dollar gold chains,
and music glorifying fratricide all started at a particular time in the Black community, and as Congress woman Maxine Waters stated the community after Iran Contra was inundated with advanced high tech weaponry,
and so much cocaine that freebase could be sold cheeply on the streets as crack.
According to Oxford scholar, Black historian Chancellor Williams drugs were one of the major tools used to destroy the Black movement;
acording to ex FBI Dr Tyrone Powers, COINTELPRO is alive well and new and improved with new strategies and technologies;http:
devide and conquer......
as i have stated before, i believe that some of the black "nationalists" who come on line putting down any progressive black leader are actually COINTELPRO operatives.
That is true I am against any Black folks knocking progressive leaders but I am more against Black folks who cannot tell the difference from a progressive and a blue dog, cause they are even more of a spy and a threat not inly to the community but to themselves as well
Brother James ... i agree, and have said the same a few times over these many years.
It's amazing how those who present themselves as so enlightened and knowledgeable, fail to see their words and actions looking like COINTELPRO.
They were problee told ... "Some of them coloreds are gonna recognize you, and when they do, deny deny deny, and blame everything on some other colored."
