Joe Veale of the Revolution Club, the Revolutionary Communist Party and a former member of the Black Panther Party recently wrote, "People are hurting, deeply, over the senseless killing of Nipsey Hussle. They talk about the way he wanted something better for the people and then got senselessly gunned down.

"But what killed Nipsey Hussle?

"Whoever pulled the trigger, Nipsey Hussle was killed by the system. A system that puts oppressed people in brutally raw conditions where they are left to kill each other off in genocidal proportions. Black against Black. Latino against Latino. One against the other. White against Black and Latino." We'll talk with Joe Veale about all this.
