“Bosley, Muhammad, Gardner and a lot of these black “leaders” are literally the epitome of what Fred Hampton was talking about: they lack political education, historical knowledge, specifically about themselves, and therefore have no fucking clue on how to serve their constituency, what to do and why. They strike me as people who were told “why don’t you run for office,” and so they did, and did so without the necessary foundation to best meet the needs of the people. #negroimperialists
“Without education, you might get people caught up in the emotion of the movement. You might get people caught up because they are poor and they want something. And if they are not educated, they’ll want more, and before you know it, we’ll have Negro imperialists.” ~Fred Hampton” – Felicia Thompson Blackonbothsides
