Below are the pages of the notorious FBI Memo dated March 4, 1968, exactly one month before the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It is the infamous “Black Messiah” memo which states on page three:
“Prevent the rise of a “messiah” who could unify, and electrify, the militant black nationalist movement. Malcolm X might have been such a “messiah;” he is the martyr of the movement today. Martin Luther King, Stokely Carmichael and Elijah Muhammed all aspire to this position. Elijah Muhammed is less of a threat because of his age. King could be a very real contender for this position should he abandon his supposed “obedience to “white, liberal doctrines” (nonviolence) and embrace black nationalism. Carmichael has the necessary charisma to be a real threat in this way.”
If the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation could advocate preventing the rise of a Black Messiah, we can advocate “INVENTING” the rise of a Black Messiah, who will unify and electrify the militant Black nationalist movement. We can invent not just one, but MILLIONS of such messiahs.
