Welcome[edit]

Hi GPRamirez. Welcome to Wikipedia and thank you for this great contribution. This new section absolutely belongs at the page, and I think you've done a great job of framing it. The topic may also deserve a page of its own; perhaps something expansive, like Armed resistance to racism in the United States. (The Malcolm X–George Lincoln Rockwell telegram comes to mind as also worthy of discussion.) Clearly you are quite capable of using Wikipedia style, but please let me know if I can be of any assistance. Shalom, groupuscule (talk) 01:52, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

Do you mean the heaps of unreferenced and non-neutral material I removed fully in line with policy? Please see WP:RS, WP:V, WP:BLP, WP:NPOV... GiantSnowman 18:47, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

But none of it was verified by reliable sources, and comments like "one of Cambridge's wealthiest and most powerful citizens", "Richardson appreciated her family’s intellectualism", "Richardson learned to more fully appreciate her African ancestry, as well as how to hone her analytical skills in order to fight bigotry and discrimination" etc. etc. are examples of the non-neutral language.

Black Panther Party[edit]

Thank you for your work on the Black Panther Party page. There is so much in the current page that is infuriatingly distorted, poorly sourced, and distracts from the salient political history with allegations of criminality. I have been too busy to work on this, but it seems vitally important. I really appreciate the efforts you have made to begin correcting these errors. BlackHistoryScholar (talk) 02:07, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

There are several users who really hate the Black Panther Party, in the David Horowitz school, are fairly knowledgeable about the history, very savvy wikipedia users, and have lots of free time. They have made the page truly awful. The page reads like Horowitz, or Hugh Pearson, only more jumbled. The effect is to obscure the politics of the Party. In the long term, I am committed to helping get the page right. But it is hard for me to find time to work on it, especially given that the Haters are always undoing the work we contribute.

Perhaps if we work together, and recruit a few more knowledgeable and responsible editors, we can get the page right.

BlackHistoryScholar (talk) 21:03, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Ditto. I appreciate your edits to the page. Where did you go? Policing.the.police (talk) 04:59, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, I just got a bit busy IRL. I'll jump back in where I can. I've been working on the Stokely Carmichael page, lately, which has its own controversies. GPRamirez5 (talk) 00:23, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
Unfortunately, something came up and I will be pretty much out of action until the new year. We were just starting to turn the page around! In another month or two, the page would actually be decent. In any case, there is a link to email me on my user page. Feel free to use it, especially if someone is making edits that reverse the progress made, or if you want suggestions to sources, etc. Policing.the.police (talk) 22:51, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

Civil Rights Movement template[edit]

Hello, and good to meet you. Most of the entries you made are really good, very nice. Everyone has missed those. I did remove the Watts riot, which wasn't really Civil Rights Movement related, and put the King assassination riots as a subsection of that entry (and added 'funeral' which should have been included long ago too). John Dittmer, the historian, really has nothing in the body of his article to have him included, but maybe that's just how the page is written and it could be bulked up to include his books and publications, which are now in references. Don't know how the '63 Birmingham bombs and riot was left out for so long. Very good additions. Randy Kryn 20:24 9 October, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Have left two notes on my talk page under yours. I've put the template events into chronological order (thanks for the push to focus on this again) and added a related section (have put 'Watts riots' into related, seem okay?). Please have a look at both. Thanks. Randy Kryn 13:25 11 October, 2014 (UTC)
@Randy Kryn, Thank you. Although, I have to say, if Emmett Til, the 16th Street Church Bombing and the King assassination riots are full-fledged key movement events, than the Watts Rebellion would qualify as a key event as well. To acknowledge something as a key event or phenomenon isn't to endorse it. GPRamirez5 (talk) 20:57, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
Hi. Thanks for the interesting discussion. Emmett Till himself isn't the event that was key, but the open casket that his mother insisted on, showing his decaying and destroyed body to the world and saying, nonviolently, "Look what you've done to my son". By graphically showing the results of a legally segregated two-tiered society she nonviolently created a movement action. The 16th Street Church bombing was both directly linked with the Birmingham Children's Crusade - the church being the center of James Bevel's organizing and educating the children to nonviolently take their brave stand, and where they marched out of to take their individual walks to talk to the Mayor - and the Alabama Project, which evolved into the Selma Voting Rights Movement (Bevel and Diane Nash at first wanted to kill the people that built and set the bomb, but turned their anger into nonviolent action for the right to vote and organized, that same day, the Alabama Project). The King riots, I wouldn't really put those into movement events if I were solely writing and assembling the template, but when you put that page on the template I moved it to a subsection of the assassination. After reading the Watts riots page I've yet to see how it fits into the Civil Rights Movement, so I must have a closed personal view of the movement as being first and foremost a nonviolent movement (and would define a 'movement' action as being much more structured than a spontaneous riot, a structure built around obtaining a legal civil right). How about if we move Till to 'related' and extend the entry to read 'Emmett Till's funeral', and leave the Watts page in that section as well? Just an idea, or option.

Selma[edit]

Hello again. I've been interested in the very large additions to the Selma march page that you've been putting up, almost all of it very good work. The newest data has some inaccuracy, but nothing that's in publication as far as I know. When Andrew Young "suspended demonstrations" he did not have the authority to do that (James Bevel was running the movement), but he made an agreement with Selma authorities to have people sign an "appearance book", a book saying that they were there to register to vote and that it would be enough to call off the standing-in-line at the courthouse. Bevel immediately said that this agreement was not in effect, and King later agreed with him. As you have it written it was King's decision. Just a back-story for you, as you are doing the research right now. Bevel also met with, and was fine with, Malcolm X, who he had heard talk years before. Randy Kryn 17:42 18 November, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. I'm not sure how to be more precise here, though, without being even more detailed and long-winded. I mentioned Andrew Young by name to indicate that it was his decision, and I think the language there indicates King did not agree. With that said, most of the sources (Taylor Branch for one) do refer to a plurality of unnamed SCLC executives being "panicked" by Malcolm's arrival. There's a photo of Bevel and Malcolm in that Jet article I linked to, incidentally.GPRamirez5 (talk) 00:23, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll check out the Jet page and see if I can photograb the pic as well. A picture of Bevel and Malcolm should be an interesting addition to the important photos of the era if it hasn't been widely used. Bevel was one of those who wasn't panicked when Malcolm X came to town, met with him, and had a good talk in which he invited him to stay and be an active participant in the movement. I should add the Abernathy quotes about Bevel's pivotal role in Selma to the page, but have hesitated using quotes on pages due to the excess weight a quote section gives the words, but in this case they seem appropriate. Again, nice work, and you are really giving the article a much needed infusion of data. Randy Kryn 13:17 19 November, 2014 (UTC)
