Oakland Community School
Yes, ... One wonders what happened the all the money the Panthers raised. COuldn;t some have gone to keep this going, or wasn't enough left over after Huey had his coke fix, or Elaine Brown paid for her plane tickets to flit here and there? Ex-Panther David Hilliard's book: (text below) This Side of Glory, is brutally honest, and offers a sad picture of the waste of much money raised.
The Black Americans have set aside no day in memorial to those who gave their lives for betterment of the Black Americans.
Well, I wouldn't put it so extremely. Some Black History Month events do cover the a lot of the martyrs and heroes- with some providing more depth and more justice to them than others.
Small wonder only a handful are pledged to Black Empowerment.
Well how would you respond to those who dispute this and say, hey, we at the NAACP have long worked for black empowerment etc etc?
They all know all about a fictional Black Panther. Ask a random Black on the street about a Panther school and they'll say yeah its over in Wakanda.
LOL, most likely. But most Panther schools have long disappeared for decades even the relatively successful ones like Oakland Community above.
Shall we absolve the Fed's infiltration and disruption while deservedly critiquing the 'Nigga Dreams' * negative deeds of some key Panthers? It all has to be interlaced not soley laid at the foot corrupted actual Panthers who weren't on Fed payroll injecting filth into the program.
How much internal squabble was legit (like female involvement) or Fed strategy (like the coloring book)?
* Drugs, Macks, super-fly bling & clothes, dime Ho's, and all that Iceberg Slim mystique that blacks push as their norm and aspiration since the blaxploitation era.
