The timing is a little off, but it would make a great sequel. And I have to say Flora Quick is a great name for a 19th century character. Hmm....

"In this case the officer is black, his victim is white. The other cops who lied for the black cop were also white. When it comes to covering up brutality, the blue code apparently transcends race. Progress!"
A beating, a coverup, falsified police reports, and a cop allowed back onto the force.

"Founded in 1966, the year after Malcolm X's death, the Black Panther Party viewed itself as his ideological successor. Malcolm X had just emerged from the NOI and its almost purely race-based view of the world into an anti-colonial, anti-imperial world view, one that acknowledged the necessity of seeking white allies began to think in terms of class and race rather than race alone. This was not the position of the BPP so much as it was its trajectory. Just as Malcolm himself had been an unfinished work in progress, evolving from petty criminal to the NOI to something else afterward, the BPP seems to have viewed itself as obliged to evolve. It too was a moving target, tending steadily leftward for most of its existence integrating a Marxist and anti-imperialist analysis into its critiques of American white supremacy.

The old BPP appears, from the evidence of the 1966 and 1971 platforms, to have been moving in the direction of socialism. The organization which calls itself the NBPP on the other hand, appears to be aimed in a quite different direction, lifting phrases, concepts and a purely race-based world view from Ron Karenga’s and his US organization..."

Well, if someone claimed to have the oldest copy of the Iliad, people would get skeptical. But the religious aspect does add all kinds of fun.

"Male dropouts of all races were 47 times more likely to be incarcerated than their peers of a similar age who had graduated from a four-year college or university."

In October 1917 when the red sailors marched from the Smolny Institute to the Winter Palace they did not chant slogans from the Bolshevik Central Committee, but the punk poetry of Vladimir Mayakovsky. Yesh ananasy, ryabchiki zhui, Dyeh tvoi posledni prikhodit, burzhui! (“Eat pineapples, chew on quail Your last day is coming, bourgeois!”) In a world where a Kaiser’s crown could roll like a bauble in the gutter, and any cook could govern, there was...

Its so sad that stalin subverted what could have been the start of something wonderful.... And gave right wingers something to use as a bogeyman.
Too bad I stay away from collectables these days I really like some of those.

“Working class people of all colors must unite against the exploitative, oppressive ruling class. Let me emphasize again — we believe our fight is a class struggle, not a race struggle.” — Bobby Seale, co-founder Black Panther Party

Agreed +Will Shetterly​​​ . I didn't realize that race was only a component if their remit.
I wonder if there was any official crossover with the IWW?
Anyhow....
I guess that's what you get from growing up with 70's white cop dramas.

"Is it just a coincidence that the rate of incarceration for blacks is six times the rate for whites — and that the rate for whites who didn’t graduate high school is, likewise, six times the rate for whites who did? Is that not due to economic inequality?

Is it a coincidence that the white incarceration rate is almost four times greater in poor Idaho than in rich Connecticut? Or that so far just this year, cops in Oklahoma (population: 3.9 million) have killed 29 people, 18 of whom were white — more than the entire English police force (population: 53 million) has killed in the last decade?"

Statistically, class mobility is not greatly different for poor whites and poor blacks. Most Americans die in or near the economic quintile they were born into, regardless of race.
