The Murder of Fred Hampton
Power To The People documentary
great look back at Fred's life
To put this thing in historical context.. these young soldiers stood up
after everyone that had anything to do with human rights for African's in
America was murdered.. after.. including the president of the united states..
do you understand what kind of courage.. what kind of passion it takes to
stand up in an even stronger, more radical posture and tell your people to
fight.. to not be afraid.. to not submit... ? That is true courage.. and before
anybody gives me that "he died for us" nonsense, let me tell you something:
he didn't die for us.. he was murdered by white racist cops and government
officials for the sake of protecting white privilege in the United States.
said another way: He was murdered for white folks by white folks to
preserve their way of life.. a way of life that depended on the oppression
of African people. Not a Martyr, A murder victim. The difference between
the two is that the first puts the focus on the person and his heroism..
while the second puts the focus on the murderers.
