"Newly declassified documents from Operation SOLO, an FBI program to infiltrate the Communist Party of the United States, reveal that a journal called Freedomways, which was influential in the black community for decades, was subsidized by the Soviet and Chinese Communist Parties."

Mods: I know that some things can be a hot topic or end up in a negative manner when discussing race or religion in general, usually when someone enters the discussion on purpose to derail and inflame the issue with immediate stereotyping or incivility, and creates disruption on purpose, in order to pursue their intent of sowing discord and their own ideals.

Also to note a lot of newly discovered information surrounding the elections and it's candidates, as in any election process, will be unfolding as we move closer to it. So let's hope we can debate further amongst ourselves with manners and decorum without being shut out.

The SOLO documents demonstrate that the Soviet Union illegally provided funding, reportedly more than $28 million, to the CPUSA. The documents are based on FBI informants, Morris and Jack Childs, who had infiltrated the highest levels of the CPUSA and had participated in meetings with foreign communist parties.

An FBI memo dated March 3, 1959, which summarized a meeting between CPUSA officials and the Soviet Communist Party, reveals that CPUSA official James Jackson had asked Soviet officials about “the possibility of a Negro magazine dealing with theoretical questions.” Jackson was the party secretary in charge of “Negro and southern affairs.”

Those damn communists! lol.

would appear that some of the documents, viewed in light of current events, demonstrate a lasting impact by the Communists on many black leaders, including Obama himself

Actually, Marxist communism was a good idea, gone wrong. To fear it, and discount it, is throwing the baby out with the bath water. imo.

Truthfully many christian fundamentals are totally copasetic with communist thoughts....
It is sad the communist revolution was derailed by greed and high level manipulation and corruption, but that is the way it went....
The sorry equivalent that capialism has brought us to is simply another form of the same slavery, and witness to the fact that all goverments become slobbering idiots before the lords of the big multinational corporations.
If we could devise a system impossible to corrupt.....that would be a bonus....
In true communism, goverment gets smaller as time goes by .....dwindling away as the need for it dies....
In our syustem the octopus arms of goverment snake into every nook and crevice of our lives...whether we aprove or not.....
And above them sit the magnates directing the opera..............
