  7. --------
  8.  
  9. Red.Black.Writings is Lucien van der Walt, and his continued apologetics for a close friend and co-author are shameful (although quite understandable).
  10.  
  11. The evidence, strongest toward the top:
  12.  
  13. 1. Wikipedia - Redblackwritings is the Wikipedia account that created the Lucien van der Walt article on Wikipedia, and wrote most of the article on him: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Lucien_van_der_Walt&dir=prev&action=history
  14.  
  15. ...it is obviously a sock puppet account on Wikipedia for Lucien; see the user contributions on his life, scholarship, and books:
  16. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Contributions/Redblackwritings&dir=prev&target=Redblackwritings
  17.  
  18. Redblackwritings contributed unsourced personal information about the working class background of Lucien van der Walt's family, as well as other info unlikely to be known by anyone but Lucien van der Walt himself.  Other articles created or heavily edited by Redblackwritings are the two co-authored books:
  19. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Black_Flame:_The_Revolutionary_Class_Politics_of_Anarchism_and_Syndicalism_%28Counter-Power_vol._1%29&action=history
  20. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Anarchism_and_Syndicalism_in_the_Colonial_and_Postcolonial_World,_1870-1940&action=history
  21.  
  22. 2. Yahoo Groups -  Lucien forwards email from red.black.writings@(yahoo.com? gmail.com?) to the anarchy_africa Yahoo Group: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/anarchy_africa/conversations/messages/3755
  23.  
  24. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/anarchy_africa/search/messages?query=red%20black%20writings
  25.  
  26. 3. Scribd.com - 100 articles posted here under the redblackwritings username, 88 articles authored or co-authored by Lucien van der Walt and 12 by Zabalaza:

  32. https://encrypted.google.com/search?hl=en&q=docslide%20user%20redblackwritings
  33.  
  34. 5. Facebook - Redblack Writings is a very obvious sock puppet account on Facebook, with Lucien van der Walt and Zabalaza as the top two interests: https://www.facebook.com/redblack.writings

  42. 7. Zabalaza network - Red black writings is closely associated with Zabalaza, specifically Lucien van der Walt's articles: http://zabalaza.net/?s=red+black+writings
  43.  
  44. 8. Libcom.org - red.black.writings has only commented on the Schmidt subject and others related to Black Flame and admits to knowing Schmidt personally: https://libcom.org/user/1360327/track

  50. 9. Reddit - Redblackwritings (and Lucien's more honest pseudonyms in social media) have a history of cross-posting, copy-and-paste promotion.  Here's an example from Reddit, announcing a Schmidt response:

  61.  
  62. 12. "Red and Black" - Though an obvious allusion to anarchism, it's an extremely frequent phrase cropping up in Lucien's writing and activism: http://saasha.net/category/organisations/other-impacts/red-and-black-forums/
