Such a story is one that was never approved by black enemies-- to be told. I know several Black Panthers born and raised in Philly, who abandoned that city never to return after this incident transpired.
And now I'll be watching, to see just how accurate this account is....
Thanx 4 the headzup Sumnubian.
This presentation could prove eye-opening to say the least, to any interested. Especially to those who remember Waco, Tx. & Ruby Ridge.
These two examples of 'dissension'still receive national attention where the dropping of bombs on black folk (even children) in Philly, are to this day minimized, swept under the rug, or just flat-out ignored.
Proof, that we're still not even allowed to die with the dignity of our principles-- no matter how barbaric the policies of a murderous european pathology may be.
But I've got the local listing....so we'll see.
I'm looking forward to seeing this when it airs in my area in hopes that with it being an Independent Lense Production, it may shed some light on the truth surrounding the slaughter of these men, women and children, the slaughter of American citizens by our own government.
I think this ended in such tragedy because it was a Police lead operation and we all know the blood-lust American police have for Black people to begin with.
I could never [unless I'm forgetting something] discern what it was exactly, that these people actually did to have our own government officials [via the police] wage a war on these people.
Is it still dangerous for Black people in America to be able to live independent of America's racist White power structure? I know it was in much of America during pre-Civil Rights era America; this is written in black and white in our history in this country, in America's history.
It just makes me think of how almost all attempts that Black people made to exist and thrive outside the boundaries of America's [racist] White power structure have been met with tragic and deadly consequences.
"Black Wall Street" of Tusla, Oklahoma and The Rosewood Massacre are only two of the most famous of the countless reoccurring incidents of it's kind all across America, especially in the south, where Black socio-economic independence was met with hatred, jealousy and its demise deliberately orchestrated by racist Whites.
Of course, that little tidbit of Black history/African Americans history in America and it's long-term consequences is conveniently rarely, if ever discussed, while countless hours are spent on, tv shows, movies, opt-eds, essays, books and news an social media, discussing and pointing out each and every failure or negative of any kind in African America, African Americans, Black men, Black women, and even Black children.
But at the same time, I would wager that 99% of African Americans [let alone the rest of America] know nothing about "Black Wallstreet", The Rosewood Massacre [et, al], or even the more recent massacre of the MOVE members.
