The CIA Is Recruiting Black People For Its New "Diverse" Rebrand

Original CIA Headquarters

“Woke.” “Progressive.” “Diverse.” Believe it or not, that’s what people have been calling the CIA’s new re-branding scheme – including a new video intended to “recruit more women and persons of colour as undercover agents.” 

But, here’s where it gets bad.

The bureau went further than just making a friendlier logo and website. The woman in their video, a non-Black Latina, unironically quoted Zora Neale Hurston, then said this: 

"I am a woman of color ... diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder … I am intersectional … I did not sneak into CIA … I earned my way in.” What?


The entire video steals philosophies that were actually created by Black women and revolutionaries. For example, “intersectionality” was coined to describe violence against Black women.

In other words, the CIA’s using language created by the people they’ve been spying on and assassinating for generations.

Not to mention, only 10.8% of CIA leaders are non-white – and even fewer are Black in senior ranks. But the answer definitely isn’t more "diversity."

“Diversity” won’t stop the U.S. from pillaging the Black diaspora. The CIA kills the radicals who create liberatory language, then disposes of their bodies – and now is co-opting their words! But, we’re not their puppets. We need to tell them no – joining the CIA to kill our own people is NOT liberation!
