Red Skull, black agitator (1971)


Cover to Captain America #143 from marvel.wikia.com

Captain America and Falcon have a long history of taking on real social movements and political and media figures.

In Captain America #143 from November 1971, Cap and his partner Falcon (the same heroes involved in the current media dust-up) track down the hidden evil mastermind behind the Black Power movement and recent race riots in New York.

The prime mover in the organization is revealed to be none other than Cap’s arch nemesis the Red Skull, improbably decked out in a uniform emblazoned with the insignia of the raised fist salute. Chapter two of this issue, hailed by some as “the most 70’s comic ever,” was titled, “Burn, Whitey, Burn!”
