Somebody's Watching Me: FBI Research Reports on the Nation of Islam
Thanks to The Memoryhole, we can now see the FBI reports on the Nation of Islam from the 1960's. Seeing and reading these documents now makes me wonder who of us are considered potential enemies of the state these days. Of course, I always wonder about being watched by the state because I grew up in one of these "Negro Cults" from the 60's called the Black Hebrews. The only difference (from an FBI point of view) is that the Hebrews' main community is overseas in Israel. Boy, would I love to see the FBI Reports on them!
Anyway, its an interesting look into spook activity aimed at the Black community in the 1960's. You know I bet you anything Haki Madhubuti and his Third World Press are being watched today. Did anyone catch his opening remarks at the Race and Hip-Hop Community Forum in Chicago in July? Everybody on the panel could be considered intellectually dangerous! The panel included Raquel Rivera, William 'Upski' Wimsatt, Oliver Wang, Ernie Paniccioli, and Bakari Kitwana.
