You Can Call Me Jay

“Grandmaster Jay’s group, the NFAC, is a Black militia whose goals, other than to abjure F-cking Around, are obscure. It has a militarylike structure, fields an army of hundreds of heavily armed men and women, subscribes to esoteric racist doctrines, opposes Black Lives Matter, and follows a leader who thinks we live in a period of apocalyptic tribulation signaled by the movements of celestial bodies. Its modus operandi is to deploy a more fearsome Black militia wherever white militias dare to appear.” The Atlantic’s Graeme Wood with the pretty weird, oddly entertaining, a fully disturbing story of a man calling himself Grandmaster Jay who has raised a disciplined, heavily armed militia. “It has yet to fire a shot at its enemies, but it’s prepared for war.”
