If you’ve known me for a while you know I post this every year on the day after Xmas, I am leaving town on Xmas day to visit loved ones and don’t know when I’ll be back home.so here it is..If I offend anyone who observes Kwannza ..I don’t give a flip. ….Today begins the so-called holiday known as Kwanza, a celebration that has no real roots in any African traditions, but many African Americans choose to observe it as an alternative to Xmas. That’s fine if it works for you. I however use this time every year to remember the lives of my two friends John Huggins and “Bunchy” Carter. Who were killed on January 17th 1969 on the orders of a sadistic cult leader who also was a paid agent of the FBI. This person Ron Karenga also was convicted of torturing two black women,Gail Davis and Deborah Jones, holding them for days at times using electrical cords and hot soldering irons burning them in private parts of their bodies. After serving only a short prison sentence, Karenga surfaced in Southern Calif. again with various Academic degrees he still can’t prove he earned. Today Karenga parades around the country calling himself a “victim” and a pioneer in the “Black Power” movement. Hoping those of us who survive and were in the real struggle will forget who he was. Well every movement has it’s heroes and has it’s victims. And as time goes by new facts come to light, many of the old paid informants as well as retiring or even dying FBI agents have come forward over the years. Ron Karenga was without a doubt the most dangerous of all the people who betrayed the movement. At the time the FBI used any and all means to prevent alliances between Black militant groups, using agents, false arrests ,fake letters written to Black Panther Party members on FBI stationary and left where their friends could see them. And the biggie, orchestrated rivalries and assassinations.Karenga was one of the most useful and willing tool of the CO-INTEL_PRO era. Even today he seems to have no guilt or regrets about his torturing or his killings, using the fact that he “invented” Kwannza to set himself up as one of the true warriors of the struggle. Horsesh*t…. My friend John Huggins of New Haven Conn. was a wonderful man who took me to Calif. With Geronimo Pratt to train in the Black Panther Party. Bunchy Carter was a reformed gang leader who brought the first peace to the street gangs of Los Angeles. Bunchy helped set up a free shoes program, a free health clinic, and one of the first shelters for battered women in the state of Calif. Rather than observe Kwanza the holiday invented by the sick sadistic traitor Karenga I remember the lives of my friends. I have no problem with people who chose to observe Kwanza…but I also believe that what you don’t know CAN hurt you.
