How ‘Strange Fruit’ Killed Billie Holiday

As we have seen with the persecution of the Austin 7 by the international corporate banking cartel and their subsidiaries that deal in drug trafficking–including the US military, the Justice Department, the Attorney General of the United States, the FBI, and, more locally, in Chicago, the Mayor’s Office, the US Attorney for Northern Illinois, the federal courts, and the Chicago Police Department–anyone interfering with this trade is targeted.

Part of the agenda is racism, as we see in the targeting of African-American and other minority neighborhoods. So, it is not surprising that Billie Holliday became a target for her insistence on performing this powerful song–a reminder that blacks were still being lynched in the South.
