Racism in the US was embodied by J Edgar Hoover. He was America's most emboldened domestic terrorist. He abused his power consistently to destroy those he perceived as his enemy. In particular, he abused his power to infiltrate and destroy African Americans - most notably Reverend Dr Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and the Black Panther Party. J Edgar Hoover's legacy of racism permeated America and its institutions and allowed African Americans to continue to be marginalized by the destruction of African American leadership. J Edgar Hoover sanctioned assassinations and weaponized the US government to crush, kill and destroy African Americans. The racism that has risen recently has its roots in historical events. The make America great again domestic terrorists are emboldened because their view of making America great again is a return to jim crow and other racist initiatives. J Edgar Hoover was NO Hero and his presence should not be embodied by having his name emblazoned on any edifice. Just as statues of confederate statues have been torn down, the name of this domestic terrorist must be removed NOW.
