In the book A Racial Program for the Twentieth Century, published in 1913 by
Israel Cohen of the Fabian Society (a follow-up to Zangwill's Melting Pot),
he wrote: "We must realize that our Party's most powerful weapon is racial
tension. By propounding into the consciousness of the dark races, that for
centuries have been oppressed by the Whites, we can mold them to the program
of the Communist Party...In America, we will aim for subtle victory. While
enflaming the Negro minority against the Whites, we will instill in the
Whites, a guilt complex for the exploitation of the Negroes. We will aid the
Negroes to rise to prominence in every walk of life, in the professions, and
in the world of sports and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negroes
will be able to intermarry with the Whites, and begin a process which will
deliver America to our cause." On June 17, 1957, this passage was read into
the Congressional Record by Rep. Thomas G. Abernathy.

In 1922, the Russian Comintern provided $300,000 for the spreading of
communist propaganda among Negroes. In 1925, the Communist Party, U.S.A.,
told its members: "The aim of our Party in our work among the Negro masses
is to create a powerful proletarian movement which will fight and lead the
struggle of the Negro race against the exploitation and oppression in every
form and which will be a militant part of the revolutionary movement of the
whole American working class...and connect them with the struggles of
national minorities and colonial peoples of all the world and thereby the
cause of world revolution and the dictatorship of the proletariat."

In 1925, a dozen Blacks were recruited for propaganda training in Russia.
That same year, the American Negro Labor Congress was established. In 1930,
they changed their name to the League of Struggle for Negro Rights. They
merged with the United Negro Congress when it was founded in 1936, in
Washington, D.C. By 1940, communists made up two-thirds of its membership.
In 1947, they united with the Civil Rights Congress, a communist front group
