"391 10 20. You could help leave the conversation by simply calling in right now, or you can respond to any of the things that I am about to bring up and I've got a lot of stuff to talk about. Yesterday was the 50th anniversary believe of the killing of Fred Hampton. His assassination on this day or yesterday. Some 50 years ago in Chicago by the Chicago police and the FBI, which put them up to it. Um it was amazing because The coalition that he was building included white gang members, Latin gang members and other people who felt that they face the same problems that we're talking about today and police brutality getting roughed up in their neighborhoods and much, much more. The Panthers had provided a feeding program of food program. Those are subjects that we still talk about. Today. Look at the long lines of people that are out there hungry. They were feeding Children. They had education programs on they recognize that some of the Latin community and the poor white community had something in common, and they put together Fred Hampton did a Rainbow Coalition. Well, this was just too much for J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI. And they sent to Chicago police in they had undercover people out there who are ready to, uh Uh, turn on him for a lighter sentence for any charges that have been brought against him on it really brought down a rainbow Coalition of movement. This included poor whites from Appalachia who had moved to Chicago looking for a better job, and somehow they got together. This video of this. I've seen it how they got together and said, We are all one because we face the same problems in terms of jobs, discrimination and working People's rights on that Rainbow coalition was about the work. And I think any time that people like Fred Hampton arises, charismatic leaders there's an effort to put them down all throughout history. Malcolm X. Martin Luther King. They're all sorts that go back to the Socialist Workers Party and, Ah, Eugene Debs and all the rest. They'll find a way to put you in jail. They'll find a way to kill you. They'll find a way to stop you from reuniting pool, working people in their programs together to stop this kind of thing. On. We have Ah, Caller John from Ohio who talks about COINTELPRO. All you have do is looked us up. This information is readily available. On. It makes me wonder what coalitions are going to come together today when we see the black lives matter movement on whites out there protesting Justus much on. I know you'll call me and tell me about the violence and all that sort of stuff. We'll go ahead. Call me and tell me about the violence. But I think that wouldn't we look at it? There are all sorts of things that we have to Say about working people in this country and how people seem to try to do everything in their power to kill off. Their movements s so that they never come become successful. They're all sorts of other things that we can talk about today. Um, how about pardons? Um, there are all sorts of there is all sorts of speculation going on about who Mr Trump will pardon. Will it be some of his family members? Does he have the power to pardon himself? Evidently, hey, can And they're a lot of former troops and contractors were petitioning for pardons now, too. At least eight former service members and Blackwater security guards who were convicted of war crimes have filed petitions seeking pardons for clemency from President Donald Trump, including a former army staff sergeant. Pleaded guilty to killing 16. Afghan men and women and Children. Um, this guy staff Sergeant Robert Bales, admittedly, uh, hey, says he had a It was a long shot, but he would be remiss if he didn't try to get his lawyers to give him a pardon. There are all sorts of things that go into this apparently Sergeant Bales and and later I'll tell you about this still trying to do. This was taken a lot of drugs to beat him up and jack him up and make him into a super soldier on these things lead to violent tendencies, and now he is asking for pardon along with a number of other people. We'll see what the president does with his last 50 days and office and who he might pardon. But this is bigger than just pardoning his family on much, much more. Their soldiers out there like Robert Bales who are seeking pardons for killing people, You know if they grant his partners to these guys I don't know what it does to military discipline. The uniform code of Military justice is a lot tougher than civilian justice on if you go haywire and start killing civilians for no good reason. I think you ought to be given a life sentence without possibility of parole. Um, it's a violation of the code of conduct that they teach you when you joined the military. Oh, are drafted, as was the case in in my era. I wasn't drafted, though, s O. They teach you all about this, You know about it, and then they give you drugs to Jack you up and you go out there and become Super soldier and you kill all these people. It's not like the video games, folks. It's just not All right. Remember here is that it takes 6391 10 20 those of some of the things we can talk about Dollar men right now. Right now we step aside for Triple A traffic, which is brought to you by the power of Bowser. Experience. The power of Bowser. Bowser, Chevrolet. Hey, Boris. You got traffic over there, Chris. It's looking pretty good out there. We don't have a whole lot going on. Something just popped up in Indiana.

"For oversight of law enforcement and they advocated armed self defense. It wasn't before long that the panthers drew the attention of j. edgar hoover the director of the fbi. Hoover had already waged warfare against other civil rights groups using top secret campaign known as co intel. Pro this far reaching program used a number of unconstitutional methods to target activists including spine intimidation and violence soon. The fbi was using co intel pro to target the panthers two as well as one of their emerging leaders fred hampton worked to unify. Chicago's minority populations bringing them together. In the fight against racial injustice hampton develop programs to fight poverty as a black american. He aggressively challenged white supremacy but his quick rise within the panthers would lead to a quick downfall and in their quest for justice for hampton activists would follow a trail of corruption leading from the chicago police department to the highest levels of the. Fbi this is episode. Three fred hampton the fall of nineteen sixty seven and two years before fred hampton was killed by police right now hampton gazes at a crowd of people who surround him. They've gathered on the lawn outside city hall and maywood illinois. they're standing side-by-side their faces intent and strong the side makes hampton feel like he's glowing because they're ready to take action so as he amount of what happens hampton plants feet on the grass and steadies himself and he thinks back on the last four years. He's worked tirelessly to organize the young black people of may one for some. This may be asleep e. town happy suburb of chicago. But hampton knows the truth is much more complicated in maywood. Black people live very different lives than their white counterparts. Their lives aren't always so happy. That injustice makes hampton furious and so he's educated himself and tried to figure out how to bring positive change to his home town. He studied martin. Luther king junior and malcolm x. and now at nineteen years old. He feels fully prepared to meet this moment because tonight he and his supporters are going to make an important request of the city council. It could be a big step forward for racial justice. And the first many more to come hampton digs his feet even deeper into the grass. He pulls his black cap over his curly hair. He folds his arms as a gust of wind whips. Pico up ahead. the door. To city hall of a thin white councilman exits the building. You stops just beyond the door and peers. Out of the crowd hampton cassia right away. Councilman looks nervous. Hampton approaches him. Hello sir my name. Is fred hampton. I'm with the n. Double acp youth council called earlier this week. Yeah okay what do you want. What is all this about. We're here to ask the city construct a public pool for the residents of maywood. I was told those gathered here tonight would be allowed to speak before the council. I'm afraid whoever said that was made a mistake there's too many of you are facilities are far too small. I understand that sir but these brothers and sisters are here to represent the black families of the city. They don't have a public pool to swim during the hot summer months. The council and stares at hampton and credulous was wrong with the pool in bellwood. That's just down the road. Bellwood pool has a whites only policy problem as simple. black residents. don't have a local place where they can go and cool. We need a pool just like everyone else. i think. I'm sorry. There's nothing i can do. You honestly do yourself a favor qiao hong just all of you go home sir. I was promise. I can speak hampton. Spins around several black and white lease car suddenly pull up their lights. Flashing hampton turns back to the council but the man has already reentered city hall. Pamphlets mind begins race then. He addresses the crown brothers and sisters. Stay calm. I want you to stay calm. Please let me handle this white police officer steps out from one of the squad cars. He holds a bullhorn to his mouth. Watering disperse immediately disperse officer. Everything's all right here officer as you can see. This is a peaceful gathering it will remain peaceful but we all at once. Police officers jump out of their squad. Cars hamptons heart starts to pound. He watches in shock disbelief as they rushed the crown of his black neighbors. The police officers shove in punch force them to the ground. Hanson can't understand how this went so wrong so quickly. He thought he did everything right. He was reasonable and followed the rules. But now it's obvious that mattered. White people who run maywood saw something that made them scared a large group of black people standing in one place. That was all they needed to respond with force. Hampton watches the scene unfold. When a police officer slammed into the grass he pulls hamptons arm back and cuffs arrests as hampton lies on the watching his friends and neighbors get beaten. He realizes he was wrong. He's done asking why people treat them with respect. They won't give him any so from now on demand it. It's time to change tactics. He's going to start organizing on a larger scale and he's going to go to war on behalf of his people. It's november fourth nineteen sixty eight and a year after the skirmish at city hall tonight. Fred hampton sits at the kitchen table and dimly lit chicago apartment. He looks across the room and sees his new friend. Who's leaning into the fridge balmy russia's a twenty two year old dressed in black with a full afro in a neatly trimmed. Goatee rush grabs a couple of drinks from the refrigerator and return to the kitchen table with a smile. A moment later the to clink glasses and they began meeting at hampton hopes might change the course of his life hampton and rosh met earlier this year and a black power rally in maywood. It was one of many rallies. The hampton had organized since he was arrested at city hall and his life took a turn since that moment he's increase the intensity of his work as he told rush he's ready to take his activism to the next level rush. Seems to have gotten the message because just earlier this evening. He invited hampton over and said he might have a new opportunity for russia. Just gotten back from oakland. The city where the black panther party was founded over the phone. He told hampton to hurry over. This could be a big opportunity now. Sitting together at the kitchen table rush launches into it. He explains that while he was in oakland. He sat down with black panther leaders. He learned a lot from them and was inspired. The state of illinois needs a chanter of the black panthers. Hamptons is gonna wind as a tingle of excitement. Reaches to the tips of his fingers. Hampton knows that the black panther party is one of the most important political groups in the country. They're organizing black americans who refuse to wait for progress. They're fighting for change now not in a timeframe that makes white americans comfortable the panthers are exactly what illinois needs hampton believes and so as he locks eyes with rush. Hampton asks an important question. What can he do to get involved rush laughs and takes a sip of his drink. He says that he was just about to get there. He takes another sip and then explains that he told the panther leaders about hampton. And all of hampton's important work. He said hampton was one of the smartest most charismatic activists government hampton shakes his head both flattered and encourage an embarrassed by russia's praise and he begins to feel jittery nerves if feels like russia's about to deliver news. He's been waiting for.

White People Talking About Whiteness

"Guys many, if not most white people don't think of themselves as racialist race, we might tell ourselves is a reality for people who have different skin colors than ours Black People Hispanic people, Asian people, Indigenous People, etc, but of course white is a race. Quick important side note here. Race is not a biological thing. It is socially constructed. Sadly the white people who seem to have most clearly grasped that white is race or white nationalists. But now it is time for the rest of US white people to actually see whiteness and to talk to each other about it. This many people in the racial justice world would argue. Is the key first step toward white people engaging fully in creating a more equitable society. My guest today is Eleanor Hancock. She's the executive director of group called White, awake which employs and I'm quoting here educational resources and spiritual practices. To engage white people and I'm quoting here again in the creation of just and sustainable society an quote. Eleanor was recommended to me by seven Selassie, who's one of the court teachers on the ten percent happier APP, and was on the show last week, and really powerful episode which I recommend you check out. In this episode Eleanor, and I talk about why this work is so important. Why so many white people resist it? The barriers white people face when they actually do begin the work. The role of meditation, and the problematic aspects of white woke kness in the discussions here we go eleanor Hancock. Nice to meet you virtually. Thanks again for doing this absolutely. So I'd be curious to hear how you came to this work. How and why you can't? I would star with just a little bit about my background and the different stages in my life that have led up to it. I grew up in West Texas. kind of a mid sized city very conservative environments. I'm solid GENENTECH's so I, didn't I was we had an integrated public school system? But that said there's I think a lot of kind of just default segregation that happens socially so I developed awareness of the differences that folks of color the differences of their experiences in the united. States in particular verses, my experience as a white person that began to happen for me in graduate school. It was a variety of different circumstances that led to that. One of them like. Having a roommate that was reading the autobiography of Asada Shukor, and just realizing I, knew about I knew about Amnesty International and that there could be folks who are imprisoned for political reasons, but I it was shocking to me to realize that was something that happened here in the United States, and then the other thing is very influential to me to jump in I. Hate interrupting my guest, but it might be worth explaining a little bit of a Sasha core in that back story just oh! So she's. Part of the Black Panthers and during this entire time period where the FBI. was, targeting civilians through their coin tell pro program and a lot of just extreme aggression on many different levels, including the outright murder of Fred Hampton while he was sleeping in his bed at night, and it was a really it was a political assassination, and during that time period they were able to capture Asada and create these charges against her that kept her in prison for a long time and. She escaped to Cuba. All of that history I would really encourage people to read about that. You can look up quantel pro and the FBI and understand. The destruction that occurred to a lot of the movements that brought a so much during the sixties, the fifties, sixties and seventies the ways that they were destroyed. And part of what happens when you infiltrate and destroy a movement from within is. All only harm it. Externally you create so much paranoia and violence within that then people also began to destroy one another in different ways, so in terms of my own. You know just how I came to this work I try not to Belabor the story too much, but I was in a series of classes and graduate school with a Chicano professor who was teaching performance our, and this was in the late nineties and I really. Learned a lot about what at the time we would have simply called identity politics through art. So. Yeah, being part of those performance art classes for the entire time. I was in graduate school, was really an eye opener that was also during this apetit Easter rebellion, and so we were all just starting to get online, and that was part of it was incredible about that time period. APETIT ZAPPA of southern Mexico, who are indigenous people who had risen up against their own governments specifically in response to Nafta the North American. Free Trade Agreement. And there are a lot of aspects of my world view that developed during that time period, and then as I lived in my life. You know I have a biracial daughter. Her father's African American during the time that we were married I had the privilege of spending a lot of time with his family and developing strong relationships with them, and experiencing myself as the minority I think that that's a unique experience that not every a lot of people don't have that opportunity to be inside of somebody else's space racially speaking and have to understand their norms and their experience and adapt to that. I think that's a really valuable experience.

Moore's professor of Sociology and African American Studies at Northwestern University and president elect of the American Sociological Issue Logical Association in Black America. Many of the early white sociologists were actually quite racist and they preached that that in in many ways that black people were inferior and therefore they deserve to be at the bottom of the society because of their meager talents and intellect. So they did not pay much attention to the horrific Jim Crow period period of slavery. And so on. And so what that means is that the factors like oppression and Discrimination and Terence fourth and not bigger into their now about why black people face so much why they were and why they were at the bottom of society and And and this might be interesting you but the first to sociology books were actually written all race actually written by two I believe they were white.

He was served one year as president-elect and then become president of the Association in August Twenty Twenty he has taught at northwestern university. Since one thousand nine hundred ninety eight I was born and raised and Wyler Mississippi. Then I left and when I was twelve thirteen years old to and moved to Chicago and has lived in Chicago most of my life. I'm currently in in Chicago. Oh went to school and Peoria Illinois then I don't Long Island New York first job with the University of Michigan which has stayed about eight years and then I moved to North Western University. And I've been there ever since came to North Western in nineteen eighty eight idea about your childhood. Oh my childhood well. I was born in Jim Crow Mississippi. And I remember that I was just a boy I was six years old. When Emmett till was lynched He was lynched only about twenty miles. From where we we live. live with my grandparents and it had a tremendous impact on me and my generation. Some of us now refer to it as the Emmett till generation and I I remember going to the Colored School Having to sit on the back of buses Drink from Colored Water Fountains and do be be insulted and all kinds of ways especially my grandparents Were very strong people and I as a boy. I didn't understand why they were being called a boy aunt. And all of this kind of stuff so I experienced Jim Crow Racism in the heart of the South and Rural Mississippi. And then of course we were my mother and her siblings. Almost all of them have been part of the great migration and so they always lived in Chicago. Saint Louis and Milwaukee Detroit other places and so I as a little boy. I thought that The North was really really the promised land that they were really gold streets and milk and honey and all of that and so I also knew that I was going to come to Chicago once my elderly grandparents. It's passed and when they did. I was shocked with a double dose of new racism the the northern version. And so I you know I went to finished elementary school in Chicago. A went to community college and Chicago worked in factories in Chicago and And experienced a great deal love Racism and so on and Chicago of course This was the early seventy they sixties. The civil rights movement was still going on on the black power movement in particular was raging and so Also would assist that. They're the change could happen because I wouldn't have those movements and when I saw on television what was happening in the civil rights movement and all I. I grew up with a lot of hope. I thought we were going to change this thing. I had no idea that we would be where we are here. In the twenty thirty first century now you grew up in Chicago doing the radio station. WBO winds high days and allies Mohammed. And Jesse Jackson Operation Pushing Russian mayor. Daley tell us about that experience. It was a very A very rich rich experience by the time I was in Chicago. UGH Oh well I. I witnessed these a lot of the civil rights movement. The march on Washington and The Birmingham confrontation on television. 'cause I was in Chicago. Oh I was deeply influenced by Martin Luther King Junior and And then of course here in Chicago Jesse Jackson was his protege and so ooh I participated in protests and marches and so on that involved him and many many others Chicago was a very very Rich kind of Environment Like now it has some of the best and the worst tendencies of America and I went to a predominantly Lee White High School Where we were not as like people like students we were not considered to be smart? We were not considered to be college materials and so we weren't prepared appeared to they. They did not teach us to be those things and But yes I mean on on. You could drive down one street and park in front of me. Elijah Muhammad's house and you can go on a little bit east and you'll be at Jesse Jackson's headquarters and and so you know operation breadbasket is getting all of that. I do vaguely remember when Dr King about the Movement to Chicago in nineteen sixty six and there were marches for fair a housing and there was some of the most racist outpouring that the nation has ever seen When in one of those margins Dr King was hit upside the head with a brick and he said Ed that you know? I've been in Birmingham and I've been Montgomery. I've been in Mississippi but I've never seen the kind of racism that I'm experiencing here in Chicago so it was a mixed bag growing up here. I mean on the one hand. It was a vibrant strong rich black community. You know we had ebony and jet and all of the Black businesses the one that we had so many movements going on and and leaders both young and old. I was in community college when Fred Hampton and Mark Clark where fascinated they were black panthers and And that was the first time I saw Jesse Jackson in person. He came to my community college. I'll southeast junior colleges. In the end he spoke to us and And and I was like wow man. This is one of the most powerful individualism was ever heard so I remain active on movements but also You know Had never no one in my immediate family. That never gone to college so I didn't have any plans to go to college and And then the Vietnam war start raging and and I was working in Spiegel's warehouse and And I knew I didn't want to go to Vietnam and I ended up going to a community. Unity College us. Because then you could get for with the ferment. Kept you out of the service for a little while so so I did that and that was. That was the very beginning. Some of my college experience I in fact With somewhat afraid to go to community college because you know Com being a first generation student. I thought that everybody was going to be so much smarter than me. And then I was GonNa say things get laughed at it and all of that but I I went on. There was still more appealing. Attractive to meet and go into Vietnam and so I went. I went to a community college and I started reading. Do Boards and Margaret Walker and David Walker Peel. And all that kind of

"Right. Because this is again, this stuff sounds so crazy sounds like people getting in a bubble. And getting carried away this bubble was real. Yeah. I think there was something in the outline here. Ben that you didn't end up saying, but our buddies the culture kings have a phrase they use where it's talking about messing with the money. And that's when government starts really paying attention. You know, when I up setting the apple cart in a way that affects economics. I did with that. And yes in a shout out to Keith Edgar I didn't originally say it because I think we still owe them song we do. I'm going to at least make the track for this next one. I don't claim to boxy, but I can definitely make some beats. So let's I commit to that you're grid that to thanks. Fantastic MC's. I say we put out in twenty twenty just the surprise out of nowhere and call it hindsight. We know they don't listen to the show. So be. We should have them back on. I had a lot of fun in the Michael Jordan episode. I wasn't around for that one. That's right. I forgot they were all maybe listen to this show. What am I saying? Hey, guys, you as you missed out. It was actually really me. Sure. Was there dre people as far as we know they are not elements of co Intel pro strip. And and hopefully die there you guys. But it's like a witch hunt. Rules, right. Like, if you tell me, you're not that's more evidence that you are. Yeah. I think I think you'd have to say, no. And it's also I'm sure we've said this before a complete myth. If you ask and undercover cop if they're undercover cop. They don't have to tell you the total myth. They can commit crimes with you. Exactly five rules for sure and people would say that's for a greater good. And that's the argument rate that succeeded in pitching co Intel pro and in violating the laws and the rights of US citizens and taking the lives and US citizen taking the lives taking the one thing that cannot be returned. And to this day, officially the FBI the Justice department, the Chicago police force they reject claims of political skulduggery they say that the raid was. Unfortunate. It was not the ideal outcome but on their side. It was conducted correctly into the letter of the law. We're conducting a raid to find illegal firearms to neutralize a threat in nineteen seventy-one. However, an activist group called the citizens commission to investigate the FBI stole co Intel pro documents they stole the paperwork from field office. And this is how the this is how co Intel pro became a public thing had they not conducted that raid, you see the parallels. Here have not conducted that illegal raid, then it is possible if not plausible that Coen to- pro would remain a myth in a rumor and conspiracy theory in unproven conspiracy theory, even today. Yes. In April of the same year, by the way, nineteen seventy-one the FBI officially terminated co Intel pro yet numerous critics of the US government believed that program. Like this never really go away the names change. But like Dr Manhattan says watchmen nothing. No, they never ends. Oh, yeah. Have you guys seen there's a watchmen series? That's coming to HBO. It looks a lot less shiny than the Zach Snyder movie less shiny. Yeah. I felt like Zach Santa movie was a little like overly. Polished every every seen a painting. Yeah. Kind of this one like what's his name? Roy shacks mask is literally just like a sack with kind of like, you know, prequels, right? No, maybe. No. I think it's the I don't I don't know. I. Has to be cool. Right. I don't know that it is. I think I think it might even be a either a deeper exploration of the series with more of because at come on you you need more than a movie to really like go deep into that book. Right.

So there were papers strewn over the floor blood all over there was a trail of blood from where they police had dragged Fred's body and William O'Neil in this case Bill he says just stood there in shock, and he never thought it would come to this like all of his involvement with the FBI. He'd like we keep saying he didn't think it would be a massacre, and that's only to to speak to this person who has been I guess reviled throughout history.

But in another way, he didn't understand and to be very clear to be crystal clear, the FBI actively conspired to to assassinate or to neutralize at the very least a twenty one year old boy for his political. Beliefs because they saw it as a threat to both the economic and the racial or social status quo of the United States. This also occurred during the Vietnam era where in Hampton and many others like him would be lumped together as potentially existential threats to the solvency of the nation..

"As you might imagine in a raid type situation. There was another group of officers that approached from the back everyone inside was still asleep, including Fred Hampton inside. What was he say headquarters, and it was really it was an apartment it was a flat there were nine people still asleep. This is in the very early morning hours before the sun had even risen. Yeah. It's crowded apartment. First floor nineteen guns in the apartment more than a thousand rounds of ammunition. The way that the Tribune report. The series of events was that this was a national hate group known for their revolutionary politics. More importantly for shooting police officers. That's there were cop killers. That's how this was reported. Right. Yeah. Is there any sand to that? Like, I mean is there may be some kind of conflict between police and black diamonds that resulted in a police officer being killed, and they spun it into these are cop, murdering Savage's, you know, I don't have the reporting right here with me or the police reporting, but in to my mind for the Chicago Tribune to print that for killing cops, I would say that at least a few instances occurred yet there. There are claims that there were thirty five police officers who were murdered by the Black Panthers and the subsequent black Liberation Army across the sixties seventies and eighties. So the work hops did dot they were shot. And it's it's important that we mentioned this people were dying. It's it's easy and tempting perhaps for some people to get caught in the game of equivocation. Or to forget that there are actual human lives at stake. You know what I mean? So we can only imagine that of the six officers in the back door in the eight officers in the front several of them may have thought they were on a mission of dare I say vengeance. Right. So what about four forty five AM a sergeant Daniel growth knocked on the front door of the apartment. There was no answer. So he knocked. With his gun and presumably shouted. Yeah. Yeah. Shouted. Yeah. Then they busted in the door. The next seven minutes of gunfire. Become one of the most intensely debated and disputed incidence of the entire decade. There was a federal grand jury investigation that found that the police fired in the neighborhood of ranging between eighty three to ninety shots. Yeah. Into this apartment is a small again, this is in apartment in Chicago. This is gonna that. That would just be chaos. I would fear for the lives of the neighbors. And again, the the one of the nineteen guns in the apartment owned by BP one. Shotgun discharged once there was one shot fired. Yeah. It's pretty it's pretty rough pretty pretty damning usually after the shooting stopped. Fred Hampton was dead at twenty one and a party leader from Peoria. Mark Clark twenty two was also shot fatally..

"I mean, this is this is a an era of domestic security wherein the same government agency, the FBI wrote letters to Dr Martin Luther King trying to convince him to kill himself. Yeah. Yeah. Who by the way was assassinated just the year prior to Ryan Fred Hampton was killed. Exactly, exactly. There's an escalation and at the time. This may sound like common knowledge to a lot of us listening today at the time co Intel pro was classified. Nobody knew was happening. Nobody knew these operations were not public until nineteen seventy one. And that's important because it means that during the early morning hours December fourth nineteen sixty-nine. There was no public scrutiny of the actions that the FBI and its proxies local law enforcement shows to take. There was definitely not congressional oversight. Yeah. And even this is terrible to even think. But even then at the time if you look at congress, I mean. I can't I can't say, this is my opinion. But I feel like congressional oversight wouldn't do much for something. Like this. Fortunately, that's just my a completely Meiping. I agree with you. And one thing that this touches on is something that's occurred in this government and other governments quite often who which is the the conflict between elected unelected officials. Right. If you live in this country, and you are able to vote you can vote for a Representative. You can vote for a president. You cannot vote for a supreme court Justice, those nine creepy ringwraiths that run this place in everybody's still pretends that's normal excuse me, different episodes, or like, you know, people who are on the Federal Reserve people on the Federal Reserve. Yeah. Excellent point. So you you, and I and anyone listening cannot directly vote for the heads of intelligence agencies. That's never going to be on your belly. And. And presidents can come and go. But that is a different game. You know what? I mean, I'm getting creeped out. You know, I a passionate about this a feel like I'm preaching to the choir here, but it, but it's true. And the reason we bring that up is because we I I wanna be very clear that there are people in congress with the best of intentions who had no idea what was going on. Yes. You know what? I mean they were concerned about their constituency. There were probably they'll probably mainly concerned with being reelected, if we're being honest, but the they would not have co-signed these sorts of actions right because now looking back we have to ask ourselves who were the terrorists who is engaging in guerrilla tactics. Who successfully assassinated more people, oh, I know. I know dang, well, I'm just asking just asking this. This stuff comes to a head in nineteen seventy six the select committee to study governmental operations. Which is something you hit me two years and years ago. Matt the church committee. Yeah. Yeah. They they finally realize in seventy six the FBI was violating the law and had been violating the law in several operations under Cohen, tell pro pretty rough stuff the so the stated aim, right? Cohen tell pro when when they go into an office, and they're like, okay. We're would is what Kuhn tell pros going to do. We're going to prevent violence. And that's really what it is. But some of these the actions that they took during this it hit arguably promoted violence between not not between the FBI and other groups, but between the groups that the FBI is surveilling under co Intel pro specifically the Black Panthers in several other rival organizations, and we we mentioned this in our video that we made God years ago. I don't even know when that was, but we talk about to other groups that United slaves and the Blackstone Rangers who are two other. I say similar group. But they're they're very different in many ways. But it's these two other groups were then having major conflicts with the Black Panthers because of the actions taken by the FBI. Yes, in the FBI did not want these groups to unify in the eyes of the in the eyes of the bureau. These groups were similar enough that they should be kept apart. They were considered troublemakers. Right. And the FBI also worked ardently to prevent prominent BP members from making public appearances, according to Nome Chomsky who I know it can be a controversial author for some people Coen..

"Lump them in with the various other separatists or status quo challenging groups that you alluded to earlier met in the FBI's estimation. The BP was an extremist group that. Quote, advocated, the use of violence and guerrilla tactics to overthrow the US government. That's that's a heavy freeze to drop. It is. That's there's whether or not you largely agree with the idea of let's just pick one thing. Whether or not you agree with the second amendment. It's it's a hell of a leap to say that people attempting to police their own communities are automatically going to the White House to burn down the Oval Office. That's that's a that's a logical leap. And it's when the FBI by will. It's absolutely didn't how they solely sold. It. Exactly. It's absolute hyperbole. And it's like we're saying it's this idea of selling to the public this notion that this group of organized African American people are somehow a threat to you in your white communities, or in your, you know, way of life and your job in all of this stuff and your safety. Yeah, they accept whatever they need to do to get rid of it really is propaganda. But we cannot discount that some of these splintered off groups were using your dream extreme violence, man. Yeah. And I think it's a symbionese liberation shirt. Like, these other much more extreme could even now be classified as terrorist groups, right? This is during the during the Vietnam era, meaning that the I have a great metaphor for this. I wanna save it for the. But but the the idea here was one of an existential threat. So the Federal Bureau of investigation deals with things like, you know, human trafficking, drugs murders across state lines that kind of stuff and they said back burner. Backburner back Bernard dissidents extremist terrorists people who want the US to be. Less racist them to and meth our number one priority. That's our priority. They said like, you know, drugs human trafficking, interstate murder. That's stuff happens. You know? I'll let's eggs, but I'll tell you what buddy these hippies these Black Panthers this injustice shall not stand. Only our injustice, she'll stand one might imagine. Oh, man. So let's with that context. Let's look at Fred Hampton. It's a name that's familiar to people. But it's also it's this is the name of a real person, not just a symbol rains. He's a smart kid. We mentioned that he was born in summit, Illinois. There was an August thirtieth nineteen forty eight. So like us he's Nagas kid. He was raised in Maywood, and he graduated from the high school there with honors in sixty six nineteen sixty six from high school. He first went to the developmental. Institute at the YMCA community college in Chicago. And then he attended TRITON junior college in river grove, Illinois. He majored in pre law because he planned to familiarize himself with the legal system to know his rights with the aim of better protecting his community against what he saw as the threat of the police, and there's there's a there's an interesting confluence of contracting views here because Hampton saw the police as an existential threat the community and the FBI eventually sold the Black Panthers as an existential threat to their community. So originally. In the he's very young kid at this time originally Fred organized for the in double ACP..

"This is maybe a an Easter egg for some people. But today, we are exploring the life and times and untimely end of a very young man named Fred Hampton today. Most people would not be able to point out Maywood Illinois on a map it's relatively small. It's a community of at the closest estimate a little more than twenty three thousand five hundred people in cook county's proviso township shortly after World War Two now. Was this kid? His name's Fred Hampton. He he went to. He was born in summit, Illinois. He went to a high school in Maywood in the area. He was great at math was he was a great athlete and for time. He was a pre law student. He died. Spoiler alert when he was twenty one years old as bonkers to me every time I look back at these. Whether it's like musician musicians the dies has nearly age like Kurt cobaine. I forget they're like twenty three twenty four years old. I still think of myself as a relatively young, man. But it really makes you puts things in perspective. You just just getting started for at Hampton was. So what happened to look at this? We will have to start with some some social context and background. So here are the facts Fred Hampton is today. Most widely known for his association with the Black Panther party or be p p officially the Black Panther party for self defense. This was founded in Oakland, California in nineteen sixty six by Huey Newton. And Bobby Seale originally these guys wanted to protect local residents of the Oakland community from police brutality and this information crime and just as a like a local defense forces sensually a self-governing community, right? We don't we don't need a we don't need the law enforcement industry as they saw it to further repress our community. There's so many things. That could be solved the reasoning goes by by just talking to kids because these are teenagers just saying, hey, don't cause trouble. Or, you know, it's it's like you hear the stories of young kids who maybe get pulled over for something. They get caught drinking underage or smoking pot. And then the officers up to their discretion. They can they can book a kit and take them to juvie or they can do something that is scarier more. Frightening for some of them, which is called their mother. It's interesting in the movie black klansman. I don't know if you guys have seen that yet. But it got some Spike Lee finally got his first Beck's best picture and best director Oscar nominees first nation in thirty years since do the right. That's right. I watched the plane. Yes. But there's a scene where Stokely Carmichael who's the leader of the Black Panther party. Is speaking at a university and one of the organizers who's a college student who's got this. You know, college group that organized this event is very abusively pulled over by the very racist, local Riley's and just hassled for being the person that brought these people to this town. I believe in Colorado the city in Colorado. So I kind of stuff was happening all the time. And that was the there was absolutely need to have some kind of protection within this specific community to keep stuff. Like that from happening ednid- need is key. These people were making these decisions for fun, right? They weren't like, hey, should we go bowling or should we should we start a political party and? And then rock paper scissors for it. They saw a need and as the BP evolved its goals expanded. They recognize this was not something that needed to exist only in Oakland, California. But in the continent entire right, especially the US, but also also Canada and the group eventually called for nationwide changes meant to combat. The racial inequality in the US which still exists today. Now by the late nineteen sixties this organization had over two thousand members two thousand minute members..

"Sir. This is democracy. Now democracy now or the warrant piece report. I'm Amy Goodman with one gun solace with part two of today's edition of fifty years ago that right fifty years ago this week, the nineteen sixty eight democratic national convention in Chicago became a national spectacle as a major political event turned into chaos that culminated with a police riot, much of it unfolding on live national television. While Hubert Humphrey was nominated as the democratic candidate in nineteen sixty eight inside despite the fact he didn't run in any primaries outside was where the news was where police were clubbing teargassing thousands of protesters. For more. We continue our interviews with Bobby Seale founding chairman, Black Panther party was in the protests at the beginning in Chicago. Bill Ayers was arrested on August twenty seven fifty years ago and Bernardine Dohrn both Bernardine and Bill longtime activists for peace and racial Justice, former SDS that students for a democratic society and whether underground members. I mean, he Goodman with Juan Gonzalez one? Yes. Yes. With Bobby Seale again to follow up a Bobby on the conversation. We were having that the end of our previous segment when you were talking about how once Richard Nixon was elected president, he ordered. His aides to begin immediate eradication of the Black Panther party. One of the interesting things that most people are not aware of is that years later report came out in the New York Times that the f. b. i. had conducted a CPR secret poll among black Americans and found that more than twenty five percent of African Americans were supporters of the Black Panther party felt that the Black Panther party was fighting. Their interest is significant portion of the America of the African American population of this country was supportive of of your revolutionary organization. And yet as you were saying Nixon immediately ordered that you be crushed, could you talk about what happened in that first few years of the Nixon administration to the panther party. Exactly the year of nineteen sixty nine is the year. Now, remember I said he had a meeting with j. Edgar Hoover and Jade ago who were in the December the first week of December stated nationally on television that we were threat to the internal, the blackout, the party is a threat to the internal security of America. Come come. What was February seventeenth seventeenth. John a buddy Carter and John Huggins will murdered at UCLA. They were the leaders of the black path to party and loss Angeles California now. But she Carter really had gotten out of his gang group. 'cause he, he ran a three thousand member gang and he created a political organization call wretched of the earth delay to become and he later became rub. They headed up to southern California chapter the black part in the Los Angeles community. Eric, the what I'm trying to say here is that. That was the first attack on the part of the power structure using the us organization, etcetera. In a conflict situation to kill and murder. The leaders of the Los Angeles chapter, the blackout, the party do that process in the next three or four months. They attack more than twenty two offices I'm talking about in Indiana. I'm talking about the, they blew up the office and demands. I will literally got the crew Clinton of blew up that blow up that building. And I'm telling you. In San Diego brother. Bell was opening up to San Diego office at eight AM in the morning, and the police and FBI came jumped out of cars and came into place and shot him dead killing murdering. So I'm just says that period of tacking by the end of that year with the murder of Fred Hampton and then the shootout in Los Angeles, four days later after that cetera I have in my organization, I had twenty eight dead blackout to party members sixty nine wounded and defending ourselves.

Bobby Seale, Bill Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn on Police Repression, Fred Hampton Murder & Prison Strike

"Sir. This is democracy. Now democracy now or the warrant piece report. I'm Amy Goodman with one gun solace with part two of today's edition of fifty years ago that right fifty years ago this week, the nineteen sixty eight democratic national convention in Chicago became a national spectacle as a major political event turned into chaos that culminated with a police riot, much of it unfolding on live national television. While Hubert Humphrey was nominated as the democratic candidate in nineteen sixty eight inside despite the fact he didn't run in any primaries outside was where the news was where police were clubbing teargassing thousands of protesters. For more. We continue our interviews with Bobby Seale founding chairman, Black Panther party was in the protests at the beginning in Chicago. Bill Ayers was arrested on August twenty seven fifty years ago and Bernardine Dohrn both Bernardine and Bill longtime activists for peace and racial Justice, former SDS that students for a democratic society and whether underground members. I mean, he Goodman with Juan Gonzalez one? Yes. Yes. With Bobby Seale again to follow up a Bobby on the conversation. We were having that the end of our previous segment when you were talking about how once Richard Nixon was elected president, he ordered. His aides to begin immediate eradication of the Black Panther party. One of the interesting things that most people are not aware of is that years later report came out in the New York Times that the f. b. i. had conducted a CPR secret poll among black Americans and found that more than twenty five percent of African Americans were supporters of the Black Panther party felt that the Black Panther party was fighting. Their interest is significant portion of the America of the African American population of this country was supportive of of your revolutionary organization. And yet as you were saying Nixon immediately ordered that you be crushed, could you talk about what happened in that first few years of the Nixon administration to the panther party. Exactly the year of nineteen sixty nine is the year. Now, remember I said he had a meeting with j. Edgar Hoover and Jade ago who were in the December the first week of December stated nationally on television that we were threat to the internal, the blackout, the party is a threat to the internal security of America. Come come. What was February seventeenth seventeenth. John a buddy Carter and John Huggins will murdered at UCLA. They were the leaders of the black path to party and loss Angeles California now. But she Carter really had gotten out of his gang group. 'cause he, he ran a three thousand member gang and he created a political organization call wretched of the earth delay to become and he later became rub. They headed up to southern California chapter the black part in the Los Angeles community. Eric, the what I'm trying to say here is that. That was the first attack on the part of the power structure using the us organization, etcetera. In a conflict situation to kill and murder. The leaders of the Los Angeles chapter, the blackout, the party do that process in the next three or four months. They attack more than twenty two offices I'm talking about in Indiana. I'm talking about the, they blew up the office and demands. I will literally got the crew Clinton of blew up that blow up that building. And I'm telling you. In San Diego brother. Bell was opening up to San Diego office at eight AM in the morning, and the police and FBI came jumped out of cars and came into place and shot him dead killing murdering. So I'm just says that period of tacking by the end of that year with the murder of Fred Hampton and then the shootout in Los Angeles, four days later after that cetera I have in my organization, I had twenty eight dead blackout to party members sixty nine wounded and defending ourselves. We defended ourselves and many of these attacks. By the end of that year, fourteen police were kill because we shot back when they came in shooting in us. We did not play. We shot back
