Tired of folks appropriating Assata Shakurs’ image and quotations in order to promote some neo-liberal bs agenda that has nothing to do with BLACK LIBERATION OR SELF/GROUP-DETERMINATION.
Be true to yourself: Quote Hillary instead, cause that’s who you really follow and represent.
Here in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County, some Black folks & so-called leaders are so damn afraid of offending the white power structure headed by Rich Fitzgerald and Bill Peduto, they won’t even come out to support their own communities best interest.
Instead they resort to hiding behind shallow and superficial ‘community activism’ , devoid of any real direction or substance: basically, just going through the motions pretending to be something they really aren’t.
Step Up or Shut-Up!!! Stop pimping the imagery and history of the Black Liberation Movement!!!
Assata was/is a revolutionary, not an apologist for white-supremacy and economic exploitation (capitalism).
And, she damn sure ain’t a member of the democratic party and fake-ass so-called progressive (democratic-party controlled ) unions!!!
All Power to The People!
Free the Land!
