Format: Paperback
In this small book is the radical idea that our federal government has from the 1960's on conducted a dangerous and deadly mission against Tupac Shakur and many other minority leaders. Author John Potash divides the book into 190 pages of discursive argument and nearly 100 pages with 900 references to support all his work. This may be because if his thesis is currect or government has committed deadly crimes against the public that are prosecutorial. Tupac Shakur, one of the early rappers, was gunned down at the age of twenty-five after at least 5 attempts at his young life.

John Potash after two decades of revolutionary research comes up with an FBI organization called COINTELPRO involving several state local,and of course Federal Government police state officials who are named and interviewed in the deaths of Bobby Seale, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Robert F. Kennedy, Fred Hampton and many more minority activists. In the 1970's, the so-called "Gansta Rappers", were chased down one by one and attacked, killed or imprisioned by the federal agents of COINTELPRO.

By the end of this small book you are numb to the atrocities of the government and that they "Got Away With Murder". You would think that George W. Bush, who is included in this book, was just following older precedents of spying and torture that already has existed for forty years. John Potash names the men who he thinks killed Tupac Shakur and arrested many of his family. Remember that he includes so many interviews, Freedom of Information, FBI, CIA and other information agencies files, scholarly and underground articles, many publications. I can only conclude that I'm surprised nothing has been printed in the newspapers of his controversial thesis, and no real action has come about. Maybe our new President Barack Obama will try
to bring all these people to justice.

This shows how the FBI can infiltrate almost any organization. From MLK,Malcolm X,The Black Panthers and Tupac Shakur. Most everyday Americans have no clue what the government does to people of color to keep them down. Buy this book now! I highly salute Mr. Potash for this wonderful book. You will never look at things the same again.

This is an awesome and clear account of what "is" taking place in the black community. I have always suspected this, but this book brings names and places to light.

This book is packed with tons of information about various conspiracy theories that have taken place where the targets were African American celebrities and public figures. There is way too much information to verify how accurate all of the theories are but they are definitely fascinating and alarming. I could not put this book down once I started reading it and applaud the author on his diligent hard work and efforts. I give it four stars because once again it would take forever to verify the accuracy of all of these claims but if you enjoy reading about conspiracy theories this is one book you must have in your library.

Enjoyed, I compare this book to Behold A Pale Horse by William Cooper. Informative and makes your mind wonder about history, present and the future.

Format: Paperback
What have John Lennon, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jimmy Hendrix, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X in common? They were all prominent figures of the Anti-Establishment and Anti-War movement and they all died mysterious deaths. Could the militaries and the cia be behind these deaths and not be just casual happenings? The Anti-War movement helped stop the Vietnam War, the many protests that took place by the american youth lowered significantly the willingness to fight a very unpopular war in Vietnam. In the eyes of the cia militaries, these protesters were considered traitors and the protests were seen as treason at home, as it was an important factor for the loss of war. It can be concluded, knowing the dark history of the cia in the 60's and 70's in full anti-communism paranoia, that the cia was taking revenge against these anti-war figures that brought upon the US a very embarassing loss against the communists.. I think that it is very suspucious that all of these prominent figures of the anti-war movement died, and a cospiracy to kill the “traitors” was actually taking place..

In the years some evidence emerged in the cases of the killer of John Lennon, suspecting of being a Cia-asset, and the manager of Jimmy Hendrix having Cia connections as well. The cia had the power to kill them, as they probably killed president John F. Kennedy for his unwillingness to go fight communism in SE-Asia

Format: Paperback
with the way Black Leaders either were killed or taken down, etc.. this book is the truth. from the powers that be killing off Jimi Hendrix to Michael Jackson with 2Pac, Biggie,Eazy E and Jam Master Jay in between amongest others. obviously Malcolm X, Fred Hampton, Dr Martin Luther King Jr, the Black Panther Party,etc.. also the images and the way media and the Physicological aspects that are part of the day to day life. the corperate take over of what you hear,see and the images, etc... has manipulated and Pimped alot of minds and kept a bug on things. this book is the truth, and it don't even matter about political signs because the fight to be one and the same ain't even close. a powerful book right here.
