"After four weeks of testimony and one hour of deliberation, the jury in the wrongful-death case found that Loyd Jowers as well as ''others, including governmental agencies'' had been part of a conspiracy. The jury awarded the King family the damages they had sought: $100, which the family says it will donate to charity." - NY Times
"There is abundant evidence of a major high level conspiracy in the assassination of my husband, Martin Luther King, Jr. And the civil court’s unanimous verdict has validated our belief. I wholeheartedly applaud the verdict of the jury and I feel that justice has been well served in their deliberations. This verdict is not only a great victory for my family, but also a great victory for America. It is a great victory for truth itself. It is important to know that this was a SWIFT verdict, delivered after about an hour of jury deliberation. The jury was clearly convinced by the extensive evidence that was presented during the trial that, in addition to Mr. Jowers, the conspiracy of the Mafia, local, state and federal government agencies, were deeply involved in the assassination of my husband."
"Because he took on those forces, powerful economic forces that dominated politics in this land, they
killed him. He was killed because he could not be stopped. He was killed because they feared that half a
million people would rise in revolution in the capitol of this country, and do what Mr. Jefferson said
needed to be done every 20 years, to cleanse this land. This land has not been cleansed. This nation has
not faced the problems that Martin Luther King, Jr. died trying to face and confront. They still exist
today, the forces of evil, the powerful economic forces that dominate the government of this land and
make money on war and deprive the poor of what is their right, their birthright. They still abound and
they rule." - William Pepper
“Gramma said when you come on something good, first thing to do is share it with whoever you can find; that way, the good spreads out where no telling it will go. Which is right.”

"We’ve committed more war crimes almost than any nation in the world, and I'm going to continue to say it. And we won't stop it because of our pride and our arrogance as a nation." - MLK
"We heard that the FBI attempted to destroy one of our greatest leaders in the field of civil rights, and then replace him with someone of the FBI's choosing.
From the evidence the committee has obtained, it is clear that the FBI for decades has conducted surveillance over the personal and political activities of millions of Americans. Evidently, no meeting was too small, no group too insignificant to escape their attention. It did not seem to matter whether the politics of these Americans were legal or radical or whether the participants were well known or obscure. It did not matter whether the information was intimate and personal. The FBI created indexes, more commonly called enemy lists, of thousands of Americans and targeted many of the Americans on these lists for special harassment." - (Sen. Walter Mondale, US Senate Church Committee (1975)
"One of the documents that was given to me by one of these researchers was a CIA document that had a stamp on it that said somewhere at the top there “must a Negro who is clean,” who can step into the vacuum of chaos once Dr. King is exposed or assassinated." - Cynthia McKinney, former Congresswoman

“The reactionary suicide is ‘wise,’ and the revolutionary suicide is a ‘fool,’ a fool for the revolution in the way Paul meant when he spoke of being a ‘fool for Christ,’ That foolishness can move mountains of oppression; it is our great leap and our commitment to the dead and the unborn.”
– Dr. Huey P. Newton, I Am We, or Revolutionary Suicide
If you read the FBI files you will see that even Mr. J. Edgar Hoover himself had to say that it was not the guns that were the greatest threat to the internal security of the United States of America; it was not the guns, it was the Free Children’s Breakfast Program that was the greatest threat to the internal security of the United States of America.

idk if huey was killed by the FIB (get it?), but i think king might have been. and it's a known fact they killed fred hampton. so whether they pulled the trigger on malcolm, king, jfk, or rfk is irrelevant, because they pulled the trigger on fred. they did have a million COINTELPRO papers on Huey P. Newton (later got his doctorates). They even clandestinely protected him awhile due to the fact that his death would cause so much revolt, despite the fact they did horrible things to him.
the FBI sent MLK a letter to try to get him to kill himself. "stop now before we bare your fraudulent, filthy self before the nation, there is but one way out for you, you better take it now, you're done, satan could do no worse, you are an abnormal beast," etc. was some of the wording.

a documentary i watched in one of my classes said 2/3 of what people talk about is gossip. i suppose more anti intellectualism was most of the rest of the third. not that the bible's some great historical source, but
