Cleaver was certainly the weak link in the Black Panther leadership, ultimately contributing more towards its destruction than helping it. He wasn't really a hardcore black nationalist or racial seperatist when you get down to it, he wasn't, which was common for that time, an overblown hardcore Marxist or leftist.
What Cleaver was really all about was expanding his overblown ego more than anything else. He also later proved himself to be a complete flake going through stages as a black right wing conservative, a born again Christian, and I think he even got involved in some sort of bizarre eastern religion for a while. There are lots of reasons to admire the Black Panther Party, Cleaver is not one of them. A lot of what I learned with this reading, was admittedly violent and based in misogyny. I also learned that it is easier to do evil than it is to do good.
And I have been terribly impressed by the youth of America, black and white.
I am proud of them because they have reaffirmed my faith in humanity. It is not fully awake yet, but there is soul in the air I have watched the sit-ins, the f, ' dom raids, the Mississippi Blood Summers, demonstrations.

You may fmd this difficult to under I but it is very easy for one in prison to lose his sense of self. E1ke the point of being attractive to women.
In prison he gets only lt. Years and years ofbitter looks.
It is a deep hole out of which to climb. What must be done, I.
I know that the black man's sick attitude toward the white woman is a revolutionary sickness: it keeps him perpetually out of harmony with the system that is oppressing him. Many whites flatter themselves with the idea that the Negro male's lust and desire for the white dream girl is purely an esthetic attraction, but nothing could be farther from the truth. His motivation is often of such a bloody, hateful, bitter, and malignant nature that whites would really-be hard-pressed to find it flattering.
I have discussed these points with prisoners who were convicted of rape, and their motivations are very plain. But they are very reluctant to discuss these things with white men who, by and large, make up the prison staffs.
