about there portrayal of black women in the movie
Excerpt from, Huey P. Newton's autobiography "Revolutionary Suicide"...
"For a time I tried the pimping life, but this caused altogether too much inner turmoil. Whenever I pimped a Black sister, my mind would be filled with flashes of the slave experience - the racist dogs raping Black women. I began to feel that if my conscience would not allow me to pimp Black women, perhaps I should pimp white women - the "enemy". But when I "turned out" a white woman and found there was still a crisis of conscience, I realized that I could never pimp for a living. With Black women the feeling was shame, because I was selling my sister's body. With white women the feeling was not shame, but guilt, because I was now in the role of the oppressor.....
I flirted with pimping for only about nine months." (96)
The activities of The Black Panther Party deemed a threat to the political economy of the United States. They Black Panthers were the most developed manifestation of decades of repression which sought to change the existing political order. Authorities at the federal, state and local levels employed a variety of tactics to assault The Black Panther Party and other Black Political Organizations. The antics included mandating arrests and detention, deployment of informants and agent provocateurs, the use of disinformation, and electronic surveillance. The federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was the driving force behind employment of these tactics through both its counterintelligence program (COINTELPRO) and its support of local police agencies. The Black Panther Party was infiltrated and dismantled by the FBI’s counter intelligence agency. Several members were assassinated, while their strongest activists were brought up on trump charges becoming political prisons.
When a group of individuals cannot be conquered, they're destroyed maliciously.
