Communists always latch on to legitimate issues in order to advance their agenda.
This is what happened to the civil rights movement.
I'll go you one further. Looking for someone or something to blame for the incredible excess of Federal power under which we freedom-loving Americans struggle today? It's racism.
Only Federal power was able to check the institutional racism that was rampant in this country up until very recently.
Some may be ROOTED in legitimate issues, but the commie left typically exaggerates the hell out of the situation, if not outright concocting crap, the "reverend" Sharpton/Tawana Brawley case is one of a million examples.
Charles Manson's Helter Skelter:
"Helter Skelter would begin, according to one of Charlie's devotees, 'with the black man going into white people's homes and ripping off the white people, physically destroying them. A couple of spades from Watts would come up into the Bel Air and Beverly Hills district...and just really wipe some people out, just cutting bodies up and smearing blood and writing things on the wall in blood...all kinds of super-atrocious crimes that would really make the white man mad...until there was open revolution in the streets, until they finally won and took over. Then the black man would assume the white man's karma. He would then be the establishment'..."
" Charlie and the Family would survive this racial holocaust because they would be hiding in the desert safe from the turmoil of the cities. ... Afterwards, when the black man failed at keeping power, Charlie's Family, which they estimated would have multiplied to 144,000 by that time, would then take over from the black man and rule the cities."

Taking charge of the podium, dressed in a high-heeled boots and a leather mini-skirt her signature uniform Dorhn incited the assembled radicals to join the war against "Amerikkka" and create chaos and destruction in the "belly of the beast."
Her voice rising to a fevered pitch, Dohrn raised three fingers in a "fork salute" to mass murderer Charles Manson whom she proposed as a symbol to her troops. Referring to the helpless victims of the Manson Family as the "Tate Eight" (the most famous was actress Sharon Tate) Dohrn shouted:
Dig It. First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, they even shoved a fork into a victims stomach! Wild!
