The Spook who Sat by the Doorby Curtis Marez
Recalling the debriefing by Col. Mathieu in The Battle of Algiers, the National Guard Col. in Spook vows to crush a Black revolutionary army in Chicago. The revolutionaries are led by a graduate of the FBI academy who went to school to learn the state’s tactics of counterinsurgency in order to defeat them. Ultimately the Black revolution discredits the Col. using the combined weapons of psychoactive substances and blackface.
Black revolutionaries use blackface as a weapon to defeat a counter-revolutionary colonel.
