[The Communist Party] strives only to exploit what are often legitimate Negro complaints and grievances for the advancement of Communist objectives… Racial incidents are magnified and dramatized by Communists in an effort to generate racial tensions.
Summary
This chapter begins in Harlem, with a police officer shooting a Black youth who "repeatedly attacked him with a knife." This was deemed "police brutality."

About two days later, there was a march on a police station that turned into a riot, "and only a few hours after that, large sections of New York City were fast approaching open warfare." The riots lasted for three days. At the boy's funeral, "paratroopers seized at least 10 youths with knives under their shirts."

Here, the author provides a quotation from the New York Times, concerning the Communist revolution in Saigon, Vietnam:

The second phase, according to one document, is 'to get people out into the streets.' Quarrels are to be provoked, youth groups are to be armed with clubs and knives, allegedly to protect themselves in a manufactured tension."

In Harlem, a group of about 200 Blacks, and a few Whites, arrive from out of town in about 50 cars. They choose neighborhoods to set up "what amounted to command posts," and joined the race rioting from there, returning to eat, sleep, etc.

Then, we learned that "Police believe that campers were part of a hard core of troublemakers who have been traveling around to racially tense areas, taking advantage of it, if not provoking, the rioting."

All throughout this chapter, we are given snippets of news reports from the Communist revolution in Saigon, Berlin, and other places, exactly mirroring the events taking place in Harlem.

A Negro civil-rights leader says that thousands of negroes in Harlem are armed and that "sooner or later they will use their guns against the cops." The Harlem Freedom Fighters distributed flyers, teaching people how to make Molotov cocktails.

A man by the name of Albert Gaillard testified before the House Committee on Un-American Activities that he'd heard two other Communists, Benjamin Davis and Jesse Gray, speak about how "the conspiracy badly needed to organize and stimulate a Negro youth movement in Harlem." He was later told, however, that they weren't going to try to sell Communism outright, but to "have it on a social basis and then you can trick them into this youth movement."

Jesse Gray showed up at the riots, where he openly called for "100 black revolutionaries" for "guerrilla warfare." The Communist Party in Germany, we are told, also organized "along the lines of hundred-men groups… which can be… trained in the use of fire-arms and street fighting."

While all this has been happening, Malcolm X has been in Cairo. However, detectives discover, after a five-month-long investigation, that many of these Communists in Harlem have been using a certain store as their headquarters, and that it is known to also be a place frequented by "UN attaches from the United Arab Republic and various leftist African nations." At the time, Egypt was known as the United Arab Republic, and Cairo is the capital. Cairo is also "where the decision was made and the money spent to launch the Communist coup in Algeria."

When all of this was revealed, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stated publicly that he was "sick and tired of people saying this movement has been infiltrated by Communists and Communist sympathizers. There are as many Communists in this freedom movement as there are Eskimos in Florida."

Here is quoted a William Epton, Black chairman of both the Progressive Labor Movement and the Harlem Defense Council, who says of the PLM: "We arrived at what we consider to be a correct Marxist-Leninist position. Our position happens to be almost the same as that of the Chinese." A news station reported that the "PLM's money comes 'from Red China through Cuba.'"

At a subsequent riot in Rochester, New York, guns were fired in the air, stores were looted, public transportation was halted, and shops and movie theaters were ordered to close. Authorities stated that "they are strongly inclined to the conclusion that this world-headlined racial outbreak has unmistakable manifestation of a basic and widely-exploited communist revolutionary tactic–'ethnological warfare.' Under this doctrine, the Communists deliberately incite dissension and conflict between nationalities."

During this particular riot, Jews were targeted by the Blacks Police investigation showed that Jewish businesses were attacked while non-Jews on either side were not, and that this was a "'pattern' in all affected areas."

In Philadelphia, more riots broke out. About which we are told that "Seizing on a minor incident, these agitators quickly put into operation a well-organized plan," which included rapidly spreading lies that the police had killed a woman, shot a boy, or beaten a pregnant woman, in order to incite anger and violence.

Meanwhile, Malcolm X was still in Cairo, "negotiating for munitions," and spending "a considerable amount of time in the presence of international Communist propagandists." He publicly endorsed the rioting back home, and was featured prominently on Chinese broadcasts.

After the riots, The Unity Council of Harlem Organizations is formed, and we are provided with a quote from Communist official Benjamin Davis about the necessity of convening " a national convention of the Negro people, representative of all points of view without exception," in order to "[unite" the national Negro community around a common effective method of achieving freedom now."
Analysis
The Mormon Angle

The "deliberate inciting of dissension and conflict between nationalities" also stands out as a frequent tactic of the wicked from The Book of Mormon. See Helaman 4:4-5, Alma 48:1-4, and Alma 35:10, for examples.
