ever remember how the night before the first day of the Black Panthers' free breakfast program in Chicago the cops broke into the church where they were keeping the food, smashed it on the floor, and pissed on it?
sometimes "bastard" feels way too mild, tbh
@melissasage trying to factcheck this but my interweb is hecka slow, best i've found is this which says "ehhh maybe they did maybe not idk" https://www.truthorfiction.com/did-chicago-police-urinate-on-food-for-a-black-panthers-free-breakfast-program-in-1969/
not saying cops are any good though ofc
@sobsz i don't remember where I first heard it but I've definitely heard people who were alive and active in the 1960s mention it, and given how the 1960s treated the Panthers and how unfavorable the white press was against them, if it's the Panthers' word against the cops, I'm going with the Panthers.
@sobsz Here's the article from the tweet: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1080/00045600802683767?needAccess=true
it's a scholarly piece interviewing activists at the time.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
