Even in Chicago
IN TODAY'S volatile environment the political scene can
change rapidly, and the politician who has been at
the top of the dungheap may find himself buried beneath
it. Until a few months ago, Edward V. Hanrahan, the Cook
County State's Attorney, ranked only below Mayor Rich-
ard J. Daley as a political power in Chicago. He was, in
fact, slated to succeed Daley. Hardly 9nyone thinks of
him in that connection any more. Hanrahan has survived
setbacks before and he may recover from this one, but
the reversal of fortunes he has suffered was scarcely con-
ceivable until the events that followed the murder of the
two Black Panther leaders, Fred Hampton and Mark
Clark, on December 4, 1969, by police attached to Han-
rahan's office.
"Murder" is the right term. Everyone in Chicago knows
that now, and the Daley machine is disabled in conse-
quence, at least for the time being. The disintegration of
American society has not reached the point where
murdering people in their beds is viewed with equanimity
by most of the public and the politicians.
THE POLICE and Hanrahan described the 4 A.M. raid
on the Panther headquarters as "a ferocious shoot-
out" in which they played a heroic role. In May, a federal
grand jury reported that while the police fired between
eighty-two and ninety-nine rounds into the five-room
apartment, only a single shot could be attributed to the
Panthers. The jury also found a series of false statements
by police officers and the police investigation of the in-
cident "so seriously deficient that it suggests purposeful
malfeasance." The jury did not hand down indictments.
But the presiding judge, in response to petitions by the
Chicago Bar Association, the ACLU, the Chicago Council
of Lawyers and others, has appointed a special prosecu-
tor, Barnabas F. Sears, to impanel a special grand jury for
a renewed investigation.
Whatever the outcome, the Daley coalition of blacks,
blue-collar whites, ethnics, the city bureaucracy, superan-
nuated New Deal liberals and-so it is said--a sprinkling
of "intellectuals" is in bad shape. Daley may have to run
again. A high Democratic source in Chicago said that
Hanrahan has also been counted out of contention for
the nomination in 1972 for the U.S. Senate to oppose
Charles Percy.
Yesterday, it all seemed apple-pie simple, sure-fire
politics. Hanrahan has been a law-and-order prosecutor
and was liked in black as well as white neighborhoods
because he had a record of convictions of leaders of youth
gangs. Today he is a bad guy himself. Crime is still crime,
whether committed by the police or by civilians, and law
and order applies to the police as well as to others.

NIGHT EDITOR: ROB BIER

(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is
reprinted with the permission of Sun-
dance.)
By ELDRIDGE CLEAVER
MANY PEOPLE can absolutely
agree on the inescapable ne-
cessity of destroying the system
of oppression under which we now
suffer, and for replacing it with
something better. But what di-
vides us is the questions of How?
and When?
How do we move, precisely, to
successfully accomplish our goal
without, in the process, negating
our goal?
When do we move?
Once we realize what has to be
done and also how to do it, we
enter the political movement, and
after that, the way that we move
defines us politically. The expla-
nation as to why we chose to move
in a certain way requires a psy-
chiatrist - for us, Fanon. (By
now, we should all have studied
Fanon's The Wretched of the
Earth.)
We believe that Huey P. New-
ton, after carefully defining our
present situation, discovered the
form that our struggle must take
in order to successfully achieve
our goal. And he also showed us
when to move.
HUEY DEFINED the situation
of Black people inside the United
S t a t e s as a domestic colony of
U.S. imperialism. A colony inside
the v e r y lair of the rapacious
beast of imperialism. A colony
sharing the same land mass as the
colonizers, the population of the
colony dispersed throughout the
population of the colonial power.
Neither separated by either land
or water.
Huey defined the police depart-
ments as -t h e strong-arm force
used by the imperialists to sup-
press the colonized people, ter-
rorize them, and keep t h e m in
check. This is a constant process
of brutalization, because the peo-
ple are constantly moving to
break their chains. Huey said that
the police departments occupy our
black communities in the same
way and for the same purpose as a
foreign troop occupies conquered
territory. To free ourselves from
the system of oppression, Huey
said that we had to liberate our-
selves from this strong-arm force.
We had to break the power of the
gun which this strong-arm force
relies on to keep us at bay. Be-
cause of the very nature of the
conflict, Huey said that we must
use guns to offset the guns of the
pigs.
"We must organize ourselves in
a political fashion and take up
arms," Huey would say,
WHEN LOOKING at black peo-
ple as a whole, Huey saw that the
brothers and sisters off the block
the Black Lumpen within the ur-
ban centers, constituted the ex-
plosive point, that section of our
people so situated that they have

no choice but to move. Historical-
ly, the white racist system of op-
pression and exploitation has held
out only death and destruction to
our people as an alternative to
slavery.
The prospects for brothers and
sisters off the block are prison,
death, the U.S. Armed Forces, or
a short, hard, and bitter life. All
alternatives provided for us by the
system have in common that we
are unnaturally destroyed - de-
stroyed by the very functioning of
the system of oppression, which is
controlled by other men of an-
other social class. The only re-
deeming path left open to us is
the path of total war against the
system of oppression against-'
which each succeeding generation
of our people have struggled for
400 years.
Pigs stand in line w i t h 'pro-
grams and games of disaster to
run down on black people. But
now that black people have begun
to run down a program for them-
selves, pigs get uptight. The foun-
dation of the Black Panther Par-
ty is the 10-Point Program and
Platform. This is why the hand-
picked apologists for the system of
oppression always try to criticize
and belittle our program and plat-
form. Some of them say that it is
not revolutionary. Others say that
it is full of hate. But it is our own
program and platform, drawn up
for ourselves by ourselves. And it
will be us who will change it or
revise it when and if we see fit.
Our ideology is reality and our
program and platform is designed
to cope with and control the real-
ity of our daily lives, our destiny.
THE REAL DAILY LIFE of op-
pressed people is political educa-
tion. Reality becomes their ideo-
logy. With them, theory is united
with practice because they know
that literally they are struggling
to survive against odds, against
a gigantic international system of
oppression that is specifically de-
signed to destroy them. There are
other classes of people to whom
the oppression is abstract. In a_
poetic fashion, they know that,
theoretically, they a r e also op-
pressed, etc. They relate to news
of events and we compose t h e
event itself. We relate to the
event, they relate to news of the
event. We are in a category of our
own. America is a class and ethnic
society, and the systematic op-
pression of black people is specif-
ically structured and well-placed
in the design of Babylon.
Brother Malcolm made it clear
that history defined is ideology.
The Black Panther Party s a y s
that the historical experiences of
black people is the foundation of
our ideology. We transform our
history into our ideology when we
interpret it with scientific prin-
ciples of universal application.
When Huey and Bobby launch-
ed the Black Panther Party, the
only people who were willing to
follow them then, were the stone

lumpen. T h e stomp-down black
lumpen proletariat is the back-
bone of the Black Panther Party.
Without this backbone, the party
would only be a reflection of one
of those mother country debating
societies that take Marx and Len-
in for their text.'
BEFORE OUR PEOPLE were
crushed down into the position of
slaves, we were well organized. Our
history since that time has been
an unbroken struggle to get reor-
ganized. Only by organizing our-
selves can we get the freedom, se-
curity, and respect that we lost.
There are more black people in
the United States than there are
pigs of the ruling class. Our pop-
ulation is larger than many sov-
ereign nations of the earth. But
only by relentlessly struggling can
we smash out of the trickbag that
we have been placed in.
Pigs, white racist pigs, say that
black people should not fight' for
their rights, that they should be
peaceful, moderate, and reason-
able. History will show that black
people have pursued their freedom
and liberation with t h e utmost
restraint, with patience, and long
suffering. In fact, history will
show that the pigs drove us to our
knees in the Luther-King position,
we begged for mercy. Down on our
knees we begged white racist pigs
for mercy. And not only did these
pigs deny us justice, they denied
us mercy. They denied us human-
ity itself. So let them criticize our
weapons all they want to; Let us
move on them, criticizing them
with our weapons.
'Mercy' is not a word one should
throw around loosely. Mercy is the
other side of the coin of pity.
Mercy and pity are civilized no-
tions. They are, in fact, essential
elements of a t r u e civilization.
When mercy and pity are absent
in any social organization, that
society cannot be classified as civ-
ilized. Measured by that standard,
Babylon must be totally destroyed
- and with pity - pity each pig
heart that we cut out of a pig's
chest, pity it to death.
When we begged for mercy we
were the Blues People. We are not
begging anymore and we are black
people. And pigs can't dig it, can't
relate to it. For instance, they
have provoked us to madness.
Madness. People are right when
they say that black people are not
in a position to face down the pigs
on their level. But we are in a po-
sition to implement head-up mur-
der. We can guarantee the total
destruction of Babylon - with a
form of struggle that pigs will call
madness. But madness is the black
man's hydrogen bomb inside Ba-
bylon, and we must unleash this
hydrogen bomb, now, because pigs
are carrying'out a genocidal con-
spiracy of extermination against
our people. And since we have ev-
erything in the pot, why shouldn't
everything and everybody in Ba-
bylon be in the pot with us? The
name of the pot is Babylon.
