"First, I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection."
— "Letter from a Birmingham jail," 1963
These two quotes from Chairman Omali Yehsitela are so relevant right now with the FBI who recently released a document targeting African-led organizations building for African independence and self-determination as "Black Identity Extremists," to be a threat to the U.S. colonial interests. THIS IS COINTELPRO! White people especially, must take a genuine stand and defend the African liberation struggle because this is the states’ strategy to violently crush any attempt for African's to achieve freedom and to have control over their own lives and resources. - Renée Nassar
Chapter 16: Cointelpro and the War Against the Black Revolution
Quote #1: “[COINTELPRO, the U.S.] counterinsurgency program resulted in various assassinations that included Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Fred Hampton and Lawrence Mann, a co-founder of our Party (African People's Socialist Party).
Others were victims of FBI-influenced internecine violence between African organizations, while hundreds of others were rounded up for incarceration based on false charges or after being set up by provocateurs place in organizations by the FBI or other U.S. secret political police organizations."
Quote #2: "While COINTELPRO'S goals are excerpted here, this rather antiseptic outline, despite its anti-democratic content, does not even begin to describe the terror involved with this program. This excerpt from the actual FBI document, after announcing the expansion of the program to include 41 FBI offices, laid out the following goals:
1. Prevent the coalition of militant black nationalist groups...
2. Prevent the rise of a "messiah" who could unify and electrify the militant black nationalist movement...
3. Prevent violence on the part of black nationalist groups
4. Prevent the militant black nationalist groups and leaders from gaining respectability by discrediting them...
5. A final goal should be to prevent the long range growth of militant black nationalist organizations, especially among youth."

UNITY THROUGH REPARATIONS & IN SOLIDARITY WITH USM - APSC UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF APSP - FALLON LEIGH O'BRIEN
I am Black Power in white face and a soon to be member of the African People's Solidarity Committee under the leadership of the African People's Socialist Party USA. I am honored to be a member of Uhuru Solidarity Movement and I believe that white people owe reparations to the black community. The road to socialism is painted black. African People's Socialist Party USA is the ONLY political party TRULY doing the work to END the OPPRESSION [around the world] caused by a parasite known as capitalism (led by demented white power.) It's raping and exploiting the black and indigenous people and their land. Socialism needs to be led by the African working-class. This party is the force opening minds to the violence of colonialism. Remember, the economic and political are one. Uhuru! Black Power!
