Can I see some evidence for the 'fact' that they were a Marxist Leninist group? I had an Uncle who was involved in this group, and he was no Commie. ModerateCatholic 15:41, 13 December 2007 (EST)

P.S- Although they unfortunately fell in with the Black nationalist movement, Snick had its roots firmly lodged in fighting the Jim Crow laws of the 1960s. I hope you are only a parodist here to take the mick, but Snick, at least in their foundation, were not a Marxist group, and there is no evidence to support such a wholly false claim.

I had read that in the original work. Give me a sane source for this audacious claim. Saying they are a Marxist Leninist group without evidence is pointless. They are well known as a Civil Rights group who sadly fell down the Black Nationalist path. ModerateCatholic 15:57, 13 December 2007 (EST)

Here.
"The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee was created in 1960 as a nonviolent civil rights movement primarily devoted to direct-action, voter-registration campaigns in the South. Investigation was opened in 1964 to establish the extent of communist infiltration in the SNCC. Several leaders and members of SNCC had been identified as communists in public hearings of the House Committee on Un-American Activities. SNCC was determined to be extensively communist dominated. In 1966, Stokely Carmichael emerged as SNCC national chairman. In 1968, SNCC merged with the Black Panther Party and, in 1969, the name was changed to Student National Coordinating Committee. Not long thereafter the organization ceased to exist. FBI Adds New Subjects to Electronic Reading Room, US Department of State International Information Programs, 02 March 2000.

Please see [2] if that posting is intended as a pejorative. Thank you. Rob Smith 15:41, 14 December 2007 (EST)
