"The workers need to begin to learn that their job is to struggle against the bosses..."
— Chairman Fred Hampton
Jay Z love reminding us that he got here the day Fred Hampton died, if he don’t pull $100K from under that wig and close the balance on the Hampton House
Fred Hampton was a revolutionary socialist who was building a multiracial “rainbow coalition” to abolish capitalism and liberate the people, which is exactly why he was assassinated by the state.
Fred Hampton was 21. Let that sink in, Fred Hampton was 21. A 21 year old became a chairman of the Black Panthers, fed families, led a revolution, & united rival gangs in Chicago & gave an entire group of people hope. Our government was scared of & assassinated a 21 year.
There’s a Fred Hampton in your city whose young, outspoken and doing the work.
Don’t just obsess over his legacy, youth and assassination. Support those who are continuing his legacy of grassroots community work.
That’s one of the ways we all can truly honor him.
So there’s a Hollywood film about Fred Hampton and Fred Hampton’s son is struggling to raise 350k?
Fred Hampton was 21 when he was killed. We've got to listen to the kids.
Watched JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH last night and just can't stop thinking about how young Fred Hampton was when he was assassinated. Only twenty-one years old. Both Lakeith Stanfield and Daniel Kaluuya were phenomenal. Glad this film will help Hampton's story reach more people.
Fred Hampton and the Black Panthers were right: “Revolution is the solution.” A multiracial socialist revolution to liberate the people & planet from capitalist rule.
The best part of Judas and the Black Messiah is the bit where modern mainstream America pretends that at some point between Fred Hampton's assassination and today the FBI just stopped doing evil things.
Fred Hampton was a socialist and an internationalist. In his speeches, he routinely explained how and why the Black Panther Party formed and why the party ascribed to Marxism-Leninism. Do not expect to learn this in Judas and the Black Messiah.
You’re telling us that you’re a real nigga like Fred Hampton and you got your legs crossed on a jet with black stones on your neck while Fred Hampton’s house currently has a GoFundMe? https://t.co/xgVKvJOGcz
Dr. King built a multi-racial labor movement.
Fred Hampton built a multi-racial socialist movement.
Are there any examples of white progressives intentionally & strategically building multi-racial movements today? I see right-wing outreach, but not black outreach by Leftists 👀 https://t.co/cXtUWr0ya3
“I arrived on the day Fred Hampton died. Real niggas don’t die we replace revolutionaries in this country with oppressive black capitalists exploiting the working class under the guise of race solidarity.”

Liberals will literally quote Fred Hampton or Huey Newton or MLK and then turn around and say shit like this: https://t.co/gYHy7ILMm6
I love black people but I'm not sure if I'm in a positive mental state to see Fred Hampton be killed, even if its cinematically.
Watch Vanguard of the Revolution documentary and they break it down just how evil his execution was. He was 21 years old. My nephew is his age.
All you woke twitter brunch boot blacks think y’all would have been Fred Hampton, but y’all would have been the snitch
Even today, y’all are snitches. If anything good happens to someone, the first thing y’all do is look thru their old tweets to try & get them fired & canceled
Daniel Kaluuya realllly slayed his role as Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah. I’m not even surprised. but god damn.
Watching the murder scene of Fred Hampton in #JudasAndTheBlackMessiah should be required for anyone discussing police issues. Facts: 99 shots by cops,1 by Panthers; Hampton would’ve lived but cops shot him point blank in the head when they realized he was still alive. #History
They had to kill Fred Hampton because they didn’t want young 20ish year old black men thinking that their voice actually mattered and they could do powerful things. I get it.
I recognize that this may be the whitest comment humanly possible to appreciate Black art, but I have a hard time believing Fred Hampton was actually that charismatic in real life.
Seriously, Mr. Kaluuya: as long as you do the voice, I would follow you to whatever end...
In #judasandthemessiah when Fred Hampton said his mom used to babysit Emmett Till 🤯🤯
I mean sure Jay-Z raps about Fred Hampton but in real life Shawn Carter is just another one of the bloodsucking capitalists that Chairman Fred spoke out against. https://t.co/h2ICCuVFNK
