African-American and Filipino solidarity can be traced back to the Philippine-American War in 1899, the first overseas imperial war of the U.S. During the war, an African-American soldier by the name of David Fagen defected from the U.S. Army to the side of the Philippine Revolutionary Army and eventually became a captain. Fagen’s example is a hallmark inspiration for all us outraged over the grand jury decision to let Darren Wilson walk free and to forge greater solidarity as we escalate our multi-national and multi-racial peoples resistance against white supremacist violence and police repression, and ultimately against US imperialism. ‪#‎DavidFagen‬ ‪#‎PhilAmWar‬‪#‎Filipinos4BlackPower‬ ‪#‎BAYANUSA‬ ‪#‎KnowHistoryKnowSelf‬
