The African Americans holding this belief pushed away the white liberals who were trying to fight alongside them. They wanted to figure out their place in the American society without the help of whites. This group was called a reverse racist group by some, however, it was not. Carmichael and Hamilton defend it as being a peaceful group of African Americans who did not want to suppress the whites of America, they simply wanted to discover their place in society and therefore they could not be called black supremacists.
This organization was identified as an inside (as in, in the country) terrorist group. Therefore there were U. S. counter insurgency policies placed to counter act them.
