about

If co-option and distraction cannot accomplish the goals of neutralizing dissent and maintaining the racist and classist status quo, there are other methods. In the late 60s, under J. Edgar “Speed” Hoover’s covert action program, COINTELPRO, the FBI began to target The Black Panther Party, called by Hoover "the most dangerous threat to the internal security of the country.” One of the objectives was to promote and foment street violence between the Black Panthers and other radical groups as well as gangs. Under the guise of fighting terrorism, the government destabilized and discredited groups challenging oppression. The harassment, attempted assassination, imprisonment, and subsequent exile of Black Panther Assata Shakur was a direct result of COINTELPRO efforts.

lyrics

Sun king, sun king. Enforce the end for profit.
Speed king, speed king. Protect so none will suffer.
Sun king, sun king. You liberate oppressors.
Speed king, speed king. Until you run for cover.

Your son, your son. Paternalistic ardor.
Fly high, fly high. But never question structure.
Your sun, your sun. The cost of freedom’s profits.
Fly high, fly high. Live out your life in exile.

Darkness all around. Darkness in your town.
Darkness coming down. Darkness all around.
