To mark the first day of Black History Month, Back in the USSR pays tribute to a a revolutionary, an African-American, a man who fought against racism, stood up against imperialism, and unified people – black people, white people, latino people – against their real enemies, the American ruling class. And they killed him for it. They killed him for it. He gave him life for what he believed in. I’m speaking of Fred Hampton, of the Black Panther Party, an unapologetic communist who was murdered in cold blood by the Chicago Police at the age of 21 while asleep in his own bed, on December 4th 1969, along with Chicago Black Panther leader Mark Clark. And thus these two men joined 26 other Black Panthers who were executed by the police in 1969. Even though this crime took place 49 years ago, we still see how trigger-happy American police are with black lives, and how eager they are to take down political radicals who try to mobilize people against a racist capitalist system. Tonight I want to pay tribute to this man’s life, his work, his legacy.
