PROTESTS IN USA, LAND OF MARLBORO MAN WILL COME TO NOTHING, BECAUSE THERE IS NO SOLIDARITY, NO VISION, NOR GUIDING IDEOLOGY TO UNITE THE PEOPLE IN COMMON STRUGGLE AGAINST THE 1%. JUST ASK THE BLACK PANTHERS AND MAO ZEDONG. CHINA RISING RADIO SINOLAND 200608
WEB Du Bois meeting Mao Zedong, when he and his wife visited China in 1959, where he celebrated his 91st birthday and gave a speech in Beijing, saying, "China is flesh of your flesh and blood of your blood. China is colored, and knows to what the colored skin in this modern world subjects its owner" In my own country for nearly a century I have been nothing but a n-word".
Mao was so impressed with these revolutionary leaders that he published two essays in their support (https://www.marxists.org/subject/china/peking-review/1966/PR1966-33h.htm and https://www.marxists.org/reference/archive/mao/selected-works/volume-9/mswv9_80.htm).
Thanks to my interview with Chairman Fred Hampton, Jr., I've been doing a lot of research about the Black Empowerment movement in the United States (https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2020/05/27/chairman-fred-hampton-jr-the-black-panther-pantha-cubs-their-revolution-for-self-determination-to-serve-the-people-and-fight-the-us-governments-ongoing-program-of-domestic-genocide-on-china/). One salient fact is that the Black Panther Party (BPP) is organized and united behind a visionary, guiding ideology, based on socialism, especially Mao Zedong Thought. To wit,
Power to the People.
Serve the People.
Self-Determination for the People.
The Black Panther Party is the Revolutionary Vanguard Party of the People.
The Black Panthers admired, respected and were inspired by Mao Zedong (Thought), because it made Marxism-Leninism relevant to (poor) people of color, America's equivalent of China's pre-liberation, toiling masses of oppressed peasants. The four-volume Collected Works of Mao Zedong is required reading for all Black Panther members. The Black Panthers sold countless thousands of copies of Mao's Little Red Book on the streets of America, to finance their self-defense, and later, social programs.
In fact, the Black Panthers beat Richard Nixon to China, traveling there in the fall of 1971, meeting Zhou Enlai (https://archives.stanforddaily.com/1971/10/25?page=3├é žion=MODSMD_ARTICLE11#article). In the 1930s, Paul Robeson publicly sang China's eventual national anthem, Qilai (which means Rise Up), to audiences in America. Black Empowerment leader WEB Du Bois traveled to China in 1959 and gave a speech in Beijing, while celebrating his 91st birthday (https://archive.nytimes.com/www.nytimes.com/books/00/11/05/specials/dubois-china.html). In the 1960s, Robert F. Williams (Black Panther lawyer) and his wife lived there for three years and both he and Du Bois met Chairman Mao (https://radiichina.com/from-w-e-b-du-bois-to-huey-newton-a-history-of-black-americans-in-the-early-prc/).
