Zitate Fred Hampton

„We’re going to fight racism not with racism, but we’re going to fight with solidarity. We say we’re not going to fight capitalism with , but we’re going to fight it with socialism.“

—  Fred Hampton

Excerpt from Fred Hampton - "Political Prisoner" video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wy1gveC3GVs.
Kontext: We don’t think you fight fire with fire best; we think you fight fire with water best. We’re going to fight racism not with racism, but we’re going to fight with solidarity. We say we’re not going to fight capitalism with pigs and reactionary state’s attorneys like this and reactionary state’s attorneys like Hanrahan with any other reactions on our part. We’re going to fight their reactions with all of us people getting together and having an international proletarian revolution.

„I don’t want myself on your mind, if you’re not gonna work for the people.“

—  Fred Hampton

Excerpt from The Murder of Fred Hampton https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7F8RfnDhkA (1971).
Kontext: If you ever think about me, and if you think about me niggers, and if you ain’t gonna do no revolutionary act, forget about me. I don’t want myself on your mind, if you’re not gonna work for the people. Like we always said, if you’re asked to make a commitment at the age of twenty and you say I don’t want to make that commitment only because of the simple reason that I’m too young to die, I wanna live a little bit longer—what you did is, you’re dead already.

„But when I leave, you’ll remember I said, with the last words on my lips, that I am a revolutionary.“

—  Fred Hampton

"I am a Revolutionary" Full speech at marxists.org https://www.marxists.org/history/usa/workers/black-panthers/audio/fred-hampton.wav.
Kontext: So we say—we always say in the that they can do anything they want to to us. We might not be back. I might be in jail. I might be anywhere. But when I leave, you’ll remember I said, with the last words on my lips, that I am a revolutionary. And you’re going to have to keep on saying that. You’re going to have to say that I am a proletariat, I am the people. I am not the pigs. You’ve got to make a distinction. And the people are going to have to attack the pigs. The people are going to have to stand up against the pigs. That’s what the Panthers are doing here. That’s what the Panthers are doing all over the world.

„You might murder a , but you can’t murder freedom fighting“

—  Fred Hampton

Excerpt from Democracy Now http://www.democracynow.org/blog/2014/12/4/watch_the_assassination_of_fred_hampton.
Kontext: but you can’t murder freedom fighting, and if you do, you’ll come up with answers that don’t answer, explanations that don’t explain, you’ll come up with conclusions that don’t conclude, and you’ll come up with people that you thought should be acting like pigs that’s acting like people and moving on pigs. And that’s what we’ve got to do. So we’re going to see about Bobby regardless of what these people think we should do, because school is not important and work is not important. Nothing’s more important than stopping fascism, because fascism will stop us all.
