We have proved that the Communists have decided to apply here in America the same strategy we have proved they are applying everywhere in the world.
Summary
At the Communist sixth world congress, in 1928, after spending more than a decade on the subject, the Communists developed the theory of "self-determination" specifically for the "American Negroes." At earlier congresses, they had stressed the importance of Black Americans in furthering the Communist "liberation" of Africa, but they hadn't yet been targeted as a "nation" in their own right.

This new theory was confusing to American Communists, and no one was sure what it meant, in practice. The "notion that American Negroes, might need, and want, "self-determination"–secession–just because they happened to be black, was so ludicrous… that even American comrades themselves… found it difficult to accept."

The head of the American Communist Party pointed out that this wasn't anything American Blacks would have thought of themselves, since the whole concept of "self-determination" was a recent theory, created by "the 'science' of Leninism."

"'Nearly all' non-Communist Negro leaders rejected the Communist theory," one Black Communist wrote. But they decided to apply it anyway, since the economic situation of American Blacks and Russian serfs was so similar, and it had worked there.

Author Wilson Record recorded in his book, The Negro and the Communist Party:
 
"Not only were the general ideas taken over; they were advocated in precisely the same terms, down to the slogans, and even to the sentences and phrases, employed by the Communist International."

Black Communists were told to "emphasize in their propaganda the establishment of a Negro Soviet Republic." The "central slogan" was to be "Abolition of the whole system of race discrimination. Full racial, social and political equality for the Negro people." This was to be used to foment the drive for Black nationalism, the necessary step towards full-blown Communism.

While they pushed the slogans of "self-determination" to Blacks in the southern States, the Soviets directed a different slogan of "equal rights" be used in the North.

In the South, the Communists wanted all of the land taken away from the White farmers and given to the Blacks, "to insure economic and social equality." They also proposed that the state boundaries be removed and a new territory called the "Black Belt" (seriously) be created, with their own government.

This was rejected by Blacks, themselves, but it was determined by the head of the American Communist Party that this didn't mean it was wrong, it was just that they were too young of a nation to demand self-determination. They started referring to it as a "national people's liberation." In fact, when the slogan of "self-determination" was reapproved at one point, "the effect on non communist Negroes was so instantaneous and so explosive that the slogan was thereafter withdrawn… From that time on, the Negro masses would have to be content with" phrases such as "free determination of their own destiny."

The author point out that the two different goals the Communists had for American Blacks–equal rights and self-determination–seem to be at odds with each other when you think about them: "Equal rights would seem to refer to 'integration,' whatever that is, but self-determination would seem to refer to 'segregation,' whatever that is."

American Communist Party head at the time the book was written, William Z. Foster, however, clarified this by saying that Blacks would never actually be "equal" until they had their own nation (which could be merged into World Communism), basically making them one and the same goal.
Analysis
This concept of "insuring social equality" by taking from the haves and giving to the have-nots is a common Communist/Socialist theme. It is alive and well in America today via many government programs, including healthcare, stimulus checks, welfare, foreign aid, and many others.

It is interesting that the slogan of "self-determination" was eventually abandoned in relation to American Blacks, but as mentioned previously it has been used with other racial groups in the United States.

In light of the information in this chapter, it is important to ponder why Blacks are still rioting in the streets in our own day, even after the "success" of the "Civil Rights" movement. The answer is that, as this has all been orchestrated by global Communists, they are not meant to be happy or content, ever. Communists are still agitating amongst the Black community, and continuing to push them forward because they have not yet accomplished their ultimate goal. Says the author: "The point of it all, of course, is to bring socialism-communism to the United States."

We should also here stress the importance of democracy on the path towards Communism:

"The development of the American Negroes… into a full-fledged nation… is a basic requirement… It means as a result of this struggle the unfolding of the most fundamental and the most profound struggles for democracy in the United States…"

The reason for this is, of course, that people are easily manipulated, especially by people like Communists, who have no qualms about lying, killing, or stealing, to get their way.
