The Assassination of Fred Hampton and the Raid That Changed Chicago | FunTimes Magazine

On December 4, 1969, a 14-man team of police officers raided the home of Black Panther leader, Fred Hampton. Before leaving, they made sure that “he was good and dead”

#history #news #connectingdiasporan #racism

Many claimed that Hampton would have ended up becoming an integral member of the Black Panthers’ central committee, had he not been targeted by the FBI’s COINTELPRO program

Amabutho There is a article by Nana Ama Addo, *The People Speak, public opinions of covid-19. And though I respect her and her journey, and courage. I won't read it / open-it because you deliberately used a #straight-haired# model. Which does not represent the Afrikan centeredness of the Queen. Which will infect some Sisters mind regardless of age. That if I want to be on the cover, be a host, or a model. One has to have straight hair. This was not done mindlessly, its the results of "Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome", and if nobody says nothing it will continue to manifest. Had to stop watching 3, 6, 10, and 17 news because ALL the Sisters have straight hair. What is this doing to Our Daughters subconsciously ?????? Nature says that Everything that comes from a Black Womb has "curl-flat-curl" hair.
What a significant advance for Philadelphia.
