HOW WE WENT FROM BLACK PANTHERS TO GANGBANGERS. PART III

COINTELPRO is an acronym for Counterintelligence Program. This was a FBI subdivision launched to disrupt, misdirect, discredit, or otherwise neutralize the Civil Rights, Black Liberation, Puerto Rican Independence, anti-war, and student protests of the 1960s. Details of which can be found in Ward Churchill and Jim Vander Wall’s The COINTELPRO Papers: Documents from the FBI’s Secret Wars Against Dissent in the United States. This book provides the actual documents that delineate the U.S. Government’s unlawful and subversive activities that stifled the efforts to organize poor and oppressed people and the movements of the Black Panther Party (BPP), Dr. King, the American Indian Movement (AIM), and countless others around the nation that sought to disrupt the status quo.

Of the many tactics that were employed, the infiltration of these organizations with government agents was the most successful. These agents would infiltrate these groups and then sow discontent amongst the ranks. Here, it is important that we observe how this activity by the government served to create the gangs that would come of the splinter groups that broke from these organizations. Take for example how in infiltrating the BPP the government would create the conflict that would lead to BPP leaders Huey P. Newton and Eldridge Cleaver failing out. This dissent would eventually carry over to the BPP’s political prisoner faction-the Black Guerrilla Family (BGF). From this, BGF would splinter into another group-the New Black Man; then 415 Kumi, the Wreckin’ Crew and so on and so forth. With each split these organizations, as well as others around the nation, would move further away from their original pro-community platforms to become criminal gangs.
