"Kid and very gently said you know. This is part of a bigger struggle. There were a few five. Oh four protesters who were also blocked panther party members one of them in particular amendment brad. Lomax had been working with berkeley center for independent living for years and when he said the protesters needed food the party delivered. The panthers also made connections with other black demonstrators with disabilities mike. Dennis billips came up to me. And they said hey. Do you know who the black panthers are massive. I know who the black panthers are. They asked him do this. Black panther t shirt. I said what are you asking me. So do you want to be a black panthers community groups other than the panthers also showed up in droves. What i was going to happen is that everybody was going to say what you know of a black panther. We don't want to be with them but it was just the opposite. The glide memorial church promoted the movement in it's sermons. The teamsters union donated money other local groups brought food and walkie talkies the groundwork for these community connections had been laid by disability rights organizers. Well before this season began in fact before the protest cesar chavez had sent judy human a personal mail graham of support hsieh's is communication with us demonstrates the fact that we were trying to chat as broadly as possible farm workers have disabilities. This wasn't something that people saw the only affecting a small group of people and all this community support is crucial. It brings tv cameras and government attention to the sedan and some officials are in support those regulations. The protesters were demanding. Still haven't been adopted and people begin paying attention. The mayor of san francisco sends mattresses into the building and tried to get permission to install portable showers in the sinks. Some california congressman get involved. We had really great congressional delegation. Who had been engaged with the visibility community for many years and we're willing to hold these informal hearings the hearings they decide to hold a us congressional hearing in the hew building. The congressman declare one room a satellite office of congress and they rain for an hew. Wrap to fly in from washington dc to listen to the protesters testimony. The room is packed with people when the hearings start the. Hew rep has a chance to present his argument into the congressional record. He says we don't have enough funding to make everywhere accessible so he lays out some changes that hew wants to make to these five. Oh four regulations before they're adopted that includes stuff like leading colleges provide one accessible facility. Where all students with disabilities be educated rather than adopting all their facilities. He admits that these facilities might be called separate but equal when judy human. Here's this. I felt tired. I felt angry and she gets up to testify ipad. Tell you that every time you raise issue of the outrage of disabled individuals equipped country is going to continue. it is going to be ignited. There will be more takeovers building as human testifies the hew rep is nodding his head. And i would appreciate it if you would stop shaking your head in agreement when i don't think you understand what we are arguing about. I just felt that this nodding of the head was not genuine but also really the bigger point was we believed that most people did not understand the types of discrimination that we were facing and didn't necessarily view it as discrimination but viewed as as people who are not equivalent to them. Human speech had a big impact one disability studies scholar. We talked to susan. Schweik called it one of the great moments in the history of communication after the hearing on sit in day fifteen a group of demonstrators including human fly to dc to keep up their lobbying. They hold a candlelight vigil outside the hew secretaries house viggo to confront. Jimmy carter at church thakin san francisco. Demonstrators are still holding strong and finally on april. Twenty eighth after nine days in dc and over three weeks after the sudden began. The hew secretary relents without much fanfare. He picks up a pen and signs. The five zero four regulations as the activists had wanted them for the demonstrators. It is a huge victory. The san francisco demonstrators. Wait for the dc group to learn so that they can all leave the building together. All parties people were yelling and screaming and be extremely happy. Getting out of the building knowing that they never did anything else in our lives they accomplished wanting to make sure. Disabled persons were heard the demonstrators. Leave the building victorious the black panther newspaper which covered the protests very closely notes. That they're singing. We have overcome these. New regulations will mean that any organization that receives federal funding has to be accessible to everyone in her victory speech outside the building. One of the movement's leaders. Kitty cone calls out the groups that supported them. Saying there's no way thank everybody here yet. Everybody knew how many ways thank you. This collaboration was built on alliances. That had been forged long before april. Nineteen seventy seven and that lasted long after. But it wasn't always perfect. Dennis phillips told us for years. He didn't wanna talk about five. Oh four he felt like his contributions and those of other people of color had been written out of this history. There was a lot of people of color. Who bar on this shoot and how their own and should be recognized for. He's had the cross movement. Collaboration was powerful but he wished his it had borne more fruit than it did. We had a coalition. We have base if we would kept together all of the things that we had put together in that building even half of it or even a quarter of it. I think the society would have moved to have at least another ten years. Coordinate agrees even though the five. Oh four sit in absolutely dependent upon being fed by the black panther party there was no commitment after the sit in to work with the panthers or to make a commitment to even dealing with racism and barriers to black leadership inside white lead disability organisations. We just missed that opportunity. I mean we had it in seventy seven. The five zero four sit in laid the groundwork for a landmark civil rights law that was signed in nineteen ninety. The.

"Podcast passed on the Internet. That you are listening to right now. Presumably using mobile podcasts at once I'm concerned Yeah Yeah Yeah I would no way but it's not impossible no way retaining anything. You're missing a lot. Yes and this is a podcast about the worst people in in all of history. And we're doing a bit of an odd episode because we're focusing a lot On on some folks who I think are are pretty cool dudes But last episode was to build old up to the bastards who tried to destroy them so this episode about the FBI and law enforcement tried to take down the Black Panther other party My guest part two as with part one is prop propaganda a hip hop artist. In podcast. Or Yourself Yo Yo. I'm just glad to be here smiling so much to have you here. We've been really happy to have your perspective and excited to get into the rest of this so we talked about the Mulford Act in the last episode which which stopped the Black Panthers from carrying loaded weapons in the State California But did not stop the Black Panthers from loving themselves some firearms Weapons training stockpiling. It remained a big part of what they did and I found an archive of magazines published by the Black Panther community news service which was like their essentially they're media network And one issue from nineteen sixty nine included this cartoon Which Sophie can show you? Yeah and I guess I can describe it. You can describe if you'd like to describe it. Yes so this is from the the Black Panther. They take my laptop magazine that they ran. Yeah magazines so it's like it's aren't familiar with their style of animation mation but it's like thick animation style illustrations like thick like out black outlined characters like that are just kinda shaded in Grays And yellow orange letters in blue letters. It's like a black family we I think that's a child but the child looks like an adult animation style. And it's kind of like a cartoon or like a like a comic strip but the brothers brother's got a good fro. Both the brothers got a good fro. Assist is a got a nice little hair wrap on. Yeah I must say yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah. What's what's going on in cartoon It says so. Dad's got his hand on the shoulders of Little Homey and he says son. What do you want for Christmas? I can't really make out what to read. What the son says he wants for Christmas? A machine gun a shotgun a box of hand grenades a box walks of dynamite and I think a box of handguns is the sixty nine hundred sixty nine. And then there's some stuff written around the edges of the cartoon including off the pig blow oink oink away and snipe the hawks do Yeah Yeah W. A. Right here. Yeah really intense. Yes on his way to like the after police Yeah Yeah and violence against the police. This was a constant refrain in in Black Panther periodicals and it was usually framed as necessary self defense against an oppressive and violent force in there. Is this kind of unavoidably. Would it be gleeful tone. And some of the discussions against violence against law enforcement. which I think is really uncomfortable for a lot of particularly kind of middle of the road? Centrist political people to due to to deal with To to like except but There's there's a reason for this. Yeah Yeah they're in. That's what this episode is about is like dry. There was so much paranoia and hatred of the police not justice sort of like the violence against against Blackpool by law enforcement but specifically because the panthers new the police were targeting them And as the sixties turned into seventies an increasing amount of their anti law unfortunate rhetoric focused on the Federal Bureau of Investigations. And I found a really interesting website. Black power in American history It appears to be a graduate student project from UNC. See a Chapel Hill and they analyzed piles of old Black Panther magazines and noted they would claim that if the Black Panthers did not join or follow a particular course of action. Disaster will result an example sample of this was seen in the article published on January Ninth Nineteen seventy-one when it read when a pig is caught dirty snooping and shows you his badge and begs for mercy mercy him to death with the butt of your gun towards the bottom it also reads kill the pigs before they kill you. The pigs here are referring to undercover FBI agents that were sent to infiltrate the Party and cause internal unrest and again. This is really uncomfortable. Rhetoric for a lot of folks to read but it wasn't it wasn't just spawned from bloodthirsty nece the FBI and the police were engaged in an active battle to destroy the Black Panthers into murder. Many of their leaders in this period of time and a lot of folks would have just called them. Conspiratorial would have said they were sort of making stuff up because they're paranoid All of these fears were proved valid by documentation. That later came out which we'll get to at the end of this episode. There's a a good tie into like modern time especially like you know the the the community that spawned the hip hop music that most most of US kind of consider golden age. I these were our dads are moms like so even just like you know eighty song from. NWEA the police like this is injust. It's hard it's hard if you're not here to understand that like you know ice t's cop killer it's like okay you. You think that this is a like a honorable like officer position. That job is a job of person that carries prestige and honor. It's like that is not our experience with the police your experiences this is another gang right. It's just the law protects them you know so you have this attitude towards him. There's another song by I feel like your your your taste in hip hop would know if I'd say J. Dila you know what I'm saying so like you like more of the obscure doom tree stuff. I'll be listening to listen. You know saying you know Takes J. J. diller who has also has a semiconductor police in the ideas like the backstory of that song was like there was false tip that he was engaged in some criminal activity and the police raided his mom's basement. You know destroyed with all these things. It's like destroyed hard drive stuff like this guy's like recording albums for you know Tribe called quest like he's recording albums for for BUSTA rhymes. Sounds like all these like main major like like you guys asked Hurrell Timberland produces. They're all like we got our swing from J.. Diller you know an unlike in Delhi so Dila wrote this guy like you just rated my so. He made that song that day like after the police raided his mom's basement and destroy Roy just volumes and volumes of music. That none of us will never get now. You know what I'm saying So the attitudes like you're you're bullies. You're not policing us you are bullies. You know so i. It's it's hard not to respond that way but so if you understand I was a long statement but if you understand like our relationship with law and I say this as somebody who's like my brother's a highway patrol officer you know what I'm saying like we have law enforcement in our family you you know but the institution since this day like course through our veins our grandparents our great grandparents father's others you know what I'm saying like this is our relationship with the police. Sorry that just as so triggering no I just and just as a way to kind of make that point just into the modern era because we're talking but decades ago and most of this episode I've had a two thousand fifteen article in the Washington Post About civil asset forfeitures. which is what happens when police take your stuff? Without recourse of course versus burglary doesn't fourteen Police civil asset forfeiture totaled more than five billion dollars worth of property. She took five billion dollars is worth property with no recourse really from people burglaries accounted for less than four billion dollars. Worth of theft. GATT does so like when you're making that comparison between police the burglars. There's some numbers you can throw out. That are very compelling Yeah that's that's probably enough for now. Yeah so in Nineteen fifty-six the FBI launched its co Intel pro operation Co Intel pro usually see it written in all caps is one word. It's an acronym initially aimed at targeting. Getting Communist organizers in the United States it was later expanded to strike at groups like the KKK but Thanks in large part to J. Edgar Hoover in the late nineteen sixties the F. B. I.. Cohen pro operations focused increasingly and primarily on the Black Panthers. This was a sophisticated and complex operation. Hoover himself wrote one of our primary. Mary aims and counterintelligence as it concerns the key is to keep the group isolated from the moderate black and white community which may support it. And I'm going to quote again from the Book Black Against Empire here. The federal agents sought to create factionalism among the party leaders in between the panthers and other black political organizations. FBI operatives forged documents. Paid provocateurs is to promote violent conflicts between Black Panther leaders as well as between the Party and other black nationalist organizations and congratulated themselves in these conflicts yielded the killing of panthers and Co Intel pro sought to lead the party into unsupportable actions creating opposition to the BP on the part of the majority of the residents of the ghetto areas for example agent provocateurs. Tour's on the government payroll supplied explosives to panther members and sought to incite them to blow up public buildings and they promoted kangaroo courts encouraging panther members to torture inspected informants. Yeah yes so. That's it so that's so you know illuminating because it's like you're in the room it's like you're in a room with like rational people even somebody else from the back you should just punch him in the pot you just like who said that right. And then everybody goes you there about their about punching in the but like like well who first of all who punches in the button number one. You know what I'm saying. But then but just then planting these people to push them in the places that make other people uncomfortable and then that becomes the narrative yeah is clearly so effective yeah. It was very effective in very insidious. Yeah and we'll get into the numbers a little bit later of how much they spent on this for a specific example of how this process worked and we need to turn to nineteen sixty eight when J. Edgar Hoover sent a memorandum to fourteen FBI field offices noting that a state of gang warfare existed between a group called the US organization a Black Nationalist Group and the panthers. There's now us is a complicated organization. they're founder among other things. Is that the guy who created Kwanza And we're not GONNA do them justice in this episode for today's as purposes. What's important to know? Is that US in. The Panthers had a lot of disagreements on how to achieve black liberation and they competed aggressively for new recruits Through a network of informants the the FBI learned this and hoover noted that they'd seen evidence that there had been threats of murder between some members he took notice of. This ordered what he called imaginative and hard hitting counterintelligence our intelligence measures aimed at crippling the be in order to fully capitalize in his words on the rivalry and exploit all avenues of creating further dissension the FBI ordered its informants in US To tell members when the.
