The FBI ranked Black nationalists and animal rights activists as bigger threats than white supremacists and terror groups like al-Qaeda among their official counterterrorism priorities, according to leaked FBI documents.
The documents show that the FBI’s official Consolidated Strategy Guide, which lists the bureau’s counterterrorism priorities, continues to focus on “black identity extremists,” well after the bureau assured Democrats in Congress that it would stop using the term after a 2017 internal FBI report that included the phrase was published by Foreign Policy.
In a 2018 strategy guide, the FBI not only used the term but referred to “black identity extremists” as “priority domestic terrorism target.” The documents did not mention any specific attacks, though it did list examples of high profile white supremacist attacks, which were ranked a lower priority.
I want to know what is a “black identity extremist” group is and what have they done to be so high on the FBI’s priority list? Even the black panther party has never attacked a group of people based on how they look, so why in the world would the FBI have them as a top priority? What do you all think?
