Re: “JR Valrey Is an Agent Provocateur

I'm reserving my comments on the article itself and the issues it raises, but I will say that those of us who know J.R. know that he is and has always been an OPPORTUNIST. He has a strong reputation of attacking people and creating lies to advance his own personal interests and get his name out there. He's not a "journalist," but rather a loud mouth, irrational, so-called activist who's succeeded in fooling the people over at the Bay View Newspaper and KPFA into giving him a platform. He's divisive and only concerned with promoting himself. That's why he proactively thrusts himself into the limelight with the police. While I don't doubt that he does care about the issues he advocates for, his main concern is seeking more attention for himself and his name.

People in the activist circle know that what I'm saying is true. And, I'm not only talking about the white/hippie/"left"/progressive circle. I'm talking about the hardcore revolutionaries in Black and Brown communities. Those that do support him do so because they see some kind of energy in him that could one day turn into positive energy. I don't doubt that he has the potential, but he's consistently failed to materialize on it by focusing on the same, skewed personal agenda that he has. Those who've worked with him know how he's even pitted his self-described allies against each other. What kind of revolutionary is that? Nice job J.R. All of these years and you still haven't changed.
