Free Assata!

I am just deeply disturbed by the recent announcement of adding Assata Shakur to the FBI's most wanted list and increase the amount of money for her capture. This is yet another act of aggression against Black folks from the Obama administration. That's right such actions were not taken under the Bush administration, but the "activist" American-African (not African-American) president.

Under his administration, we have seen the increase spying on Muslims in United. Many people I know have been questioned by law enforcement. All these people who would always raise their voice against George W. are quiet when Obama takes such actions.

Under the Obama administration the situation of African-Americans has actually gotten worse and not better.  Today is definitely a sad day for all Blacks in the US. I am not saying that I promote violence against any law enforcer, but let us look at the facts again. Assata was a political prisoner and her case is not that different from Mumia Abu-Jamal. She was convicted for her political beliefs and not any hard evidence.
