Fred Hampton

I Love Fred Hampton

“We got to face some facts. That the masses are poor, that the masses belong to what you call the lower class, and when I talk about the masses, I’m talking about the white masses, I’m talking about the black masses, and the brown masses, and the yellow masses, too….We’re gonna fight racism with solidarity…capitalism with socialism.”—Fred Hampton, Deputy Chairman, Chicago chapter of the Black Panther Party, 1969 (Hampton 1969).

I believe SO strongly that we need to unite people who hate each other… namely white poor people with black poor people. If we can do that the country is ours. We control the levers of power.
