The Almighty Black P Stone Nation: The Rise, Fall, and Resurgence of an American Gang

One of the best books I ever read!

Image
This expose' investigates the evolution of the Almighty Black P Stone Nation, a motley group of poverty-stricken teens transformed into a dominant gang accused of terroristic intentions. Interwoven into the narrative is the dynamic influence of leader Jeff Fort, who-despite his flamboyance and high visibility-instilled a rigid structure and discipline that afforded the young men a refuge and a sense of purpose in an often hopeless community. Details of how the Nation procured government funding for gang-related projects during the War on Poverty era and fueled bonuses and job security for law enforcement, and how Fort, in particular, masterminded a deal for $2.5 million to commit acts of terrorism in the United States on behalf of Libya are also revealed. In examining whether the Black P Stone Nation was a group of criminals, brainwashed terrorists, victims of their circumstances, or champions of social change, this social history provides an exploration of how and why gangs flourish and insight into the way in which minority crime is targeted in the community, reported in the media, and prosecuted in the courts. In gangster lore, the Almighty Black P Stone Nation stands out among the most notorious street gangs. But how did teens from a poverty-stricken Chicago neighborhood build a powerful organization that united 21 individual gangs into a virtual nation? Natalie Y. Moore and Lance Williams answer this and other questions in a provocative tale that features a colorful cast of characters from white do-gooders, black nationalists, and community organizers to overzealous law enforcement. The U.S. government funded the Nation. Louis Farrakahn hired the gang--renamed the El Rukns in a tribute to Islam--as his Angels of Death. Fifteen years before 9/11, the government convicted the gang of plotting terrorist acts with Libyan leader Mu'ammar Gadhafi; currently, founding member Jeff Fort is serving a triple life sentence. An exciting story about the evolution of a gang, the book is an expose of how minority crime is targeted as well as a timely look at urban violence

Hoover wasnt no stone...He was offered a position into tho stones but the position was of lesser rank than he already had...He was offered a Ambassador position but he was already the LEADER wit the Gangsters so dat woulda been dumb to demote himself...Then David approached him wit the BGDN idea nd da rest is history...Jeff nd David both was tryna get hoover to join dey side cuz he had alot of power nd influence over the young niggas...David nd Jeff was already enemies nd so when hoover chose to unite wit David Jeff took offense to that....Thats where da SHADED brick come from on da stones drawing of the pyramid...Hoover suppose to represent dat shaded brick...dats why dey call us Bricks...
