Thinking about Assata Shakur on her 71st birthday. She wrote the second book that changed (and saved) my life. She taught me about the value and power of Freedom Dreams. She showed me the beauty of struggle. And she proved that "a wall is just a wall. and nothing more at all. It can be broken down." I pray for her continued safety and protection. I continue to work to demonstrate her innocence. And I implore the State to stop prosecuting an unjust and unfair campaign against one of our most treasured Freedom Fighters. Thank you Mama Assata. Wishing you 100 more years! #palenquequeen #handsoffassata #freeallpoliticalprisoners #everysingleone
That’s a lovely sentiment, Marc. And it works out so nicely that she saved your life, considering she ended someone else’s. Guess she broke even, huh?
Are you for real?????

Did she teach you to appreciate cop-killing?

That’s weird I’m thinking about the family of the man she executed in cold blood.

Celebrating cop killers is a good way to unite Americans.

She's a terrorist and a murderer. This speaks volumes to your character.
