FBI billboards not about Assata Shakur; it’s about repressing the black communityMay 5, 2013
Following the ludicrous announcement that the Obama administration has placed Assata Shakur on its “most wanted terrorist list”, the FBI has erected billboards in Newark, New Jersey announcing its recently increased $2 million dollar reward. However, any critically thinking person knows that these billboards are not about capturing Assata Shakur but sending a message to the rest of us. Interestingly, perhaps just a coincidence or not, Newark, New Jersey is the place where a theater co-owned by Shaquille O’Neil, recently reneged on an agreement to show a popular independent film about the life of another former member of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense, political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal.Is Assata Shakur in New Jersey? No, she is not and the FBI and the Obama administration know exactly where she is, in Cuba where she has lived since being granted political asylum by its government in 1979 after escaping from prison. 
This is not about Assata Shakur, it is about sending a message to the Black community and those that live within it who stand up to police violence, oppression and murder of residents, one of the very reasons for the formation of the Black Panthers. It is about the political repression of those who advocate on the behalf of the many political prisons being held by the United States government often in torturous conditions. It is about sending a message to anyone who would take up arms in defense of life, liberty and true freedom in a country that is home to the largest prison population in the world which the federal government and various corporations use as slave labor. It is about sending a message to those that would dare stand up and point out that the US government is the most violent entity on the planet and one that commits acts of terrorism against non-white people and nations on behalf of maintaining the American imperialist status-quo.Why else would the U.S. government seek to name Assata Shakur as a domestic terrorist after all these decades? We are talking about a woman who was shot twice while attempting to give herself up to police who were co-operating with Federal authorities to target and assassinate or otherwise eliminate members of the Black Liberation movement just as they had done and admitted in a civil lawsuit to doing to Martin Luther King Jr.The FBI and its corporate media wing fail to report the details of the sham case built against Assata Shakur after failing to win convictions on other trump up charges. The corporate media is failing to point out that a police officer, a state witness against Assata Shakur for the murder of another police officer, has recanted his testimony and admitted to lying on the stand. Medical personnel stated that because of nerves severed by a bullet, Assata Shakur would have been physically prevented from firing a weapon and it was also stated that her wounds indicate her hands were raised when she was shot consistent with her claim that she was giving herself up.Just as Assata Shakur has pointed out that COINTELPRO utilized and received full cooperation from the corporate media to demonize and alienate freedom fighters from the people who supported them, corporate media today is still fulfilling that role. The concept of a free and independent press in America has always been a fraud and it remains so today.

DO NOT FUCKING SLEEP ON THIS SHIT EVER.
Think of this; our government has placed efforts into researching social networks on the internet to pinpoint possible civilian activism (that may pose a threat to white supremacist capitalist order), and just last year they started putting up these billboards that again demonized Assata Shakur and painted her as a wanted killer rather than a framed activist. None of this is coincidental, they’re trying to specifically instill fear into black women who may want to join activist circles with similar interests as that of Assata. They want to make sure that another Assata doesn’t happen because why the fuck else would they randomly start putting billboards of someone who’s BEEN announced as ‘Most Wanted’ with a 2 million dollar bounty on her life. Why? intimidation. Our government has been studying us well and they probably fear another revolutionary or many revolutionaries similar to her will come through. Don’t ever forget how fearful our government is of intelligent black women.

damn. don’t trust that nigga in the white house.

Free Assata

ELAINE: You know, funerals always make me think about my own mortality and how I’m actually going to die someday. Me, dead. Imagine that.
GEORGE: They always make me take stock of my life and how I’ve pretty much wasted all of it, and how I plan to continue wasting it.
JERRY: I know, and then you say to yourself, “From this moment on, I’m not going to waste any more of it.” But then you go, “How? What can I do that’s not wasting it?”
ELAINE: Is this a waste of time? What should we be doing? Can’t you hae coffee with people?

Basically. White folks got some nerve talmbout “you guys can’t separate yourselves it only helps the problem”. Like they wasn’t the ones who invented the segregation tip.

Lol I think it’s funny as hell that you guys are saying this with all black colleges black television channels ect. But a white sol legend student tries to create a white student group and he is called a nazi and could be expelled
See you guys say that whites shouldn’t have things for themselves but then turn around and cry saying what do you mean we can’t do what we don’t want you to do. You racist

Historically Black colleges were created because the other colleges didn’t want Black students in their colleges.

BET and TVOne were created because the majority of the TV was catered to a Mainstream audience.

A White student creating a “White Student Group” don’t need to call it a “White” Student group because it will be assumed that Whites will be the majority of the group.

You don’t seem to understand basic concepts here.

like, can we put the AFRO back in afropunkfest???

Twitter Campaign: These are only facts. 

Feel free to join in on this campaign to boycott the Exodus movie trailer. I’m so infuriated that it is 2014 and we are still portraying on the silver screen a falsehood of what the ancient Egyptians were! Use the hashtag #BoycottExodusMovie to join. This is honestly some fuck boy mentality honestly!

i will be boycotting this. I hope this takes off
