My neighbors in the Atlanta area are quite aware of this voter suppression activity, and are already working on ways to counter it. Ultimately what we have to do is flip the governor's office and state legislature, like we did our senators and presidential electors. The latter is *why* the R's are doing this right now. They fear losing their power entirely.

Passing the federal voting rights act will help. Fighting gerrymandering after the 2020 Census results are in will be part of it. Heavily Democratic counties in the Atlanta area will stay that way. We need to concentrate on flipping peripheral areas that are becoming competitive.

Malcolm X was killed in 1965. Raymond Wood, recently deceased NYPD undercover officer back then, wrote a letter which was now made public after his death about that incident.

Raymond Wood’s letter stated that he had been pressured by his NYPD supervisors to lure two members of Malcolm X’s security detail into committing crimes that resulted in their arrest just days before the fatal shooting. Those arrests kept the two men from managing door security at the ballroom and was part of conspiracy between the NYPD and FBI to have Malcolm killed, according to the letter.

“Under the direction of my handlers, I was told to encourage leaders and members of the civil rights groups to commit felonious acts,” Wood’s letter stated.


The descendants of Malcolm X do believe that this conspiracy between NYPD and FBI to kill Malcolm X might be possible. The NYPD's response is just we're totally working together with the district attorney, while the FBI declines to comment upon this.

Following Saturday’s news conference, Vance’s office released a statement saying its “review of this matter is active and ongoing.” The NYPD said in a separate statement it has “provided all available records relevant to that case to the District Attorney” and “remains committed to assist with that review in any way.”

The FBI declined to comment on the matter.

Malcolm X’s daughter Ilyasah Shabazz said she had always lived with uncertainty around the circumstances of her father’s death.

“Any evidence that provides greater insight into the truth behind that terrible tragedy should be thoroughly investigated,” she told the news conference.
