I thought that with this topic we could begin to show and demonstrate how in fact, as a political activist, of course this history could be shed for most political activists, how in fact I came to, unlike most people in America, begin to see the police apparatus in this country for what it is. Of course, like most people in the United States of America, in my early life I thought the FBI were these good guys running around helping everybody. I thought they supported peace and all this nonsense.
As a young man at Howard University, I went to work in the south with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in Mississippi. And here I thought the legal basis for this work was clear. In fact, all we were trying to do as young students was to get our people the right to vote. While I certainly was aware of the racist and terroristic nature of the United States of America in relationship to Africans, I certainly had not understood the role of the FBI as an organized force of terrorism against my people.Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael)

White people remind me of those serial killers you see on TV that kill a bunch of people & keep an item of clothing or a piece of jewelry that belonged to the people they killed to wear for “fun”.
