The real story of Judas and the Black Messiah.
Shared for historical purposes. I do not own the rights.
Fredrick Allen Hampton (August 30, 1948 – December 4, 1969) was a black activist and revolutionary socialist. He came to prominence in Chicago as chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party (BPP), and deputy chairman of the national BPP. In this capacity, he founded the Rainbow Coalition, a prominent multicultural political organization that initially included the Black Panthers, Young Patriots, and the Young Lords, and an alliance among major Chicago street gangs to help them end infighting and work for social change.

In 1967, Hampton was identified by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a radical threat. The FBI tried to subvert his activities in Chicago, sowing disinformation among black progressive groups and placing a counterintelligence operative in the local Panthers. In December 1969, Hampton was shot and killed in his bed during a predawn raid at his Chicago apartment by a tactical unit of the Cook County State's Attorney's Office in conjunction with the Chicago Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation; during the raid, Panther Mark Clark was also killed and several others were seriously wounded. In January 1970, a coroner's jury held an inquest and ruled the deaths of Hampton and Clark to be justifiable homicide.

A civil lawsuit was later filed on behalf of the survivors and the relatives of Hampton and Clark. It was resolved in 1982 by a settlement of $1.85 million; the City of Chicago, Cook County, and the federal government each paid one-third to a group of nine plaintiffs. Given revelations about the illegal COINTELPRO program and documents associated with the killings, many scholars now consider Hampton's death an assassination under the FBI's initiative. - Wikipedia

Look at this coon William O'Neal. Those snakehead heathens killed that sell out negro too, once they were finished using him and acted like he disappeared into thin air. I remember this too well, because after the cops killed Fred Hampton, race rioting even broke out and spilled over into some of the high schools on the southside of Chicago, in my freshman year. Ours was one of them. We were pushed into it. We was dunking heathens heads in the toilets and knocking the hell outta any one of them that was bold enough to try us. They called in the national guard riding in on Army buses and they tear gased a lot of black students. We all helped each other to safety out of the building, because the government wanted as many Negroes to choke to death as possible. But the savage bastards didn't realize, even as teens in that era, many of us had the mentality of adults and helped ourselves without their sorry azz. In retrospect SELL OUT NEGROES HAS GOT TO GO!!
