Fair use rationale for Image:Book cover, Soledad Brother by George Jackson.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Book cover, Soledad Brother by George Jackson.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

New up to date info[edit]

I suggest we try and find things about that's up to date —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.94.173.73 (talk) 08:04, 22 May 2010 (UTC) It is incorrect to state that many members of the BGF join the Pirus upon relase from prison.The BGf is a political/military entity which recruits from all groups necessary to carry forty its objective,Many of the Pirus/Crips that has joined the rank & file fall back to the vice of their original gangs due to lack of discipline or committment,& often times use the name & rep of the BGF to futher their interest —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.198.55.248 (talk) 22:26, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Philosophy and Goals[edit]

I cleaned up that section a little--creating full sentences and such. I don't know how accurate it is, so I didn't actually change anything except to eliminate one clearly irrelevant statement.Biasedbulldog (talk) 16:22, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Ismaaiyl Brinsley[edit]

News media accounts of today's double murder of two NYPD police officers claim that the shooter was a member of the BGF. Early accounts are often wrong but it's worth setting up a placeholder in talk for updating the article: http://www.nydailynews.com/cops-shot-brooklyn-sources-article-1.2051941?evdb http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/12/20/ismaaiyl-brinsley-nypd-black-guerilla-family_n_6361324.html www.infowars.com/nypd-declares-wartime-after-suspected-marxist-black-guerrilla-family-member-executes-cops/ infowars.com is fringe, does not meet our sourcing guidelines and should not be used

This whole piece needs major editing[edit]

The use of 'gang" when referring to the original BGF founded by George Jackson while incarcerated rather than inmate organization, is part of a theme promoted by corrections officials - the fact that there may be other groups in prisons across the US who have taken up that name (similar to the "New" Black Panther Party, which is not related to the original) should not be a rationale for defining what was formed then, as what is now. Particularly because with lurid press coverage of the recent shooting of two NYC police by a deranged man who shot his girlfriend, killed two police and then himself has nothing to do with George Jackson, Geronimo Pratt etc.

I worked with the legal defense team for the Soledad Brothers, and the San Quentin Six, corresponded with them, and find some of the sources here highly questionable.

Professor Oliver, I have mentioned your concerns in Wikipedia:Neutral point of view/Noticeboard#Black Guerrilla Family. - Location (talk) 18:08, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Not sure The usual practice is to use the language of the sources cited. If the sources are troublesome then list the source here, say why it should not be used and what would fix the problem.
Note that while personal experience is useful, for quality control, Wikipedia only covers what has been published. For information to be added, it must be followed with a citation to a published source. Blue Rasberry (talk) 19:12, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
