Political prisoner, POW Jalil A. Muntaqim on #BlackLivesMatter and related activism. 

"I am not confident these protests will result in anything substantial in terms of institutional change or build a sustainable movement...

"... I am asking activist[s] to post on their Facebook page and other online sites these musings, for open discussion and dialogue… I request this paper be widely distributed and discussed. I am prepared to enter discussion with anyone interested in the potential development of a National Coalition for a Changed America (NCCA).”

Muntaqim can be reached via mail at: Mr. Anthony Bottom DIN# 77A4283 Attica Correctional Facility Box 149 Attica, NY, 14011-0149

Birthday shout out to Huey P. Newton​, co-founder of the The Black Panther Party​. You're snowed in, take 41 minutes and be shocked into action at the relevancy of how a 1988 analysis' is frighteningly, yet unsurprisingly, true today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHL7glIcP4o #HueyNewton   #HueyPNewton   #blackpanther   #blackpantherparty   #racisminamerica

I don’t believe in violence—that’s why I want to stop it. And you can’t stop it with love, not love of those things down there, no. So, we only mean vigorous action in self-defense, and that vigorous action we feel we’re justified in initiating by any means necessary. Now, the press, behind something like that, they call us racist and people of “violence in reverse.” This is how they psyche you. They make you think that if you try to stop the Klan from lynching you, you’re practicing “violence in reverse.” Pick up on this. I hear a lot of you all parrot what the man says. You say, “Well I don’t want to be a Ku Klux Klan in reverse.” Well, if a criminal comes to rob your house with his gun, brother, just because he’s got a gun and he’s robbing your house, brother, and he’s a robber, it doesn’t make you a robber because you grab your gun and run him out. No, see, the man is using some tricky logic on you. And he has absolutely got a Ku Klux Klan outfit that goes through the country frightening black people. Now, I say it is time for black people to put together the type of action, the unity, that is necessary to pull the sheet off of them so they won’t be frightening black people any longer. That’s all. And when we say this, the press calls us “racist in reverse.” “Don’t struggle—only within the ground rules that the people you’re struggling against have laid down.” Why, this is insane. But it shows you how they can do it. With skillful manipulating of the press, they’re able to make the victim look like the criminal, and the criminal look like the victim.

Perhaps actions in the current ‪#BlackLivesMatter movement can employ some of these chants!  #BlackLivesMatter   #BlackPanthers   #BlackHistoryMonth   #BlackPantherParty

Malcolm X: In the past two years, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad has become the most talked about black man in America because he is having such miraculous success in getting his program over among the so-called Negro masses. Time magazine last year wrote that he has eliminated from among his ...

Never let anybody tell you and me the odds are against us—I don’t even want to hear that. Those who think the odds are against you, forget it. The odds are not against you. The odds are against you only when you’re scared. The only things that makes odds against you is a scared mind. When you get all of that fright off of you, there’s no such thing as odds against you. Because when a man knows that when he starts playing with you, he’s got to kill you, that man is not going to play with you. But if he knows when he’s playing with you that you’re going to back up and be nonviolent and peaceful and respectable and responsible, why, you and me will never come out of his claws.

Let him know that you’re peaceful, let him know that you’re respectful and you respect him, and that you’re law-abiding, and that you want to be a good citizen, and all those right-thinking things. But let him know at the same time that you’re ready to do to him what he’s been trying to do to you. And then you’ll always have peace. You’ll always have it. Learn a lesson from history, learn a lesson from history.

I must say this once before we close. I don’t want you to think that I’m coming back here to rabble-rouse, or to get somebody excited. I don’t think you have to excite our people; the man already has excited us. And I don’t want you to think that I’m ready for some unintelligent action, or some irresponsible action, or for just any old thing just to be doing something. No. I hope that all of us can sit down with a cool head and a clear mind and analyze the situation, in the back room, anywhere, analyze the situation; and after we give the proper analysis of what we’re confronted by, then let us be bold enough to take whatever steps that analysis says must be taken. Once we get it, then let’s do it, and we’ll be able to get some kind of result in this freedom struggle.

But don’t let anybody who is oppressing us ever lay the ground rules. Don’t go by their game, don’t play the game by their rules. Let them know now that this is a new game, and we’ve got some new rules, and these rules mean anything goes, anything goes. Are you with me, brothers? I know you’re with me.
