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.

The bartender gives them both water because he is able to distinguish the boundary tones that dictate the grammatical function of homonyms in coda position as well as pragmatic context.

It’s here…

I have been trying to figure put how to say half of these names for like 10 minutes.

Akshajram — It’s like someone just clicked a fuckload of letters on a keyboard.

OMFG. LOL. I’m pretty sure I’ve keysmashed file names as that.

OMG I know. Half the kids were Indian. Literally half.

Yes, these are ethnic names…it doesn’t look like a keyboard smash anything. I mean god forbid their names be something that means something in their culture and not something like River to Harmony. SHEESH

Wow fuck the xenophobic people who were commenting on this. Like, these are actual names of actual children of color and you want to make fun of part of their identity and heritage because your uncultured ass can’t conduct a google search or you know actually ask these kids how to pronounce their “ethnic” (in quotations because ethnic really just means not white now a days) names. Like fuck that shit. It’s not funny and it is pretty fucking racist.

God forbid non white non western names be beautiful or meaningful
Yall take time perfecting your pronunciation of bendiddly coosalagoopagoop because it’s attached to a white man, but lord knows these names are just “keysmash” names which are only there for proper folk to make fun of.
since yall cant be assed to do the research:
Makena (Hawaiian, meaning abundance or happy one, )
Saanvi (Indian, synonymous with Lakshmi, the beautiful Hindu goddess of material and spiritual wealth and prosperity) 
Sourav (Indian male first name. It means fragrance, generally that of flowers.)
Teo (Greek, Gift of God)
Jyotsna (Indian, ‘moonlight’ in Sanskrit)
Lekhana (sanskrit for painting and writing)
Rohin (Sanskrit for ‘rising’; born under the Sandlewood tree)
Rushil (sanskrit; ‘charming’)
Kothai (devoted, sweet natured girl)
Sejal (river water, pure, or depth in character)
Vedika (restoring knowledge)
so get the fuck outta here with that mess

Dude…. seriously. This looks like a kindergarten class… Do not fuckin disrespect the children you are teaching. Do not give them “easier to say” nicknames. Learn their names and how to say them correctly. Do not disrespect the child’s heritage and culture. If you can’t put in the effort to learn, stop fuckin teaching.

OP isn’t the teacher, apparently she’s the mom of one of the kids. which is equally ass bad because she probably laughs at these children’s names in front of her kid
but still ewww at all of that ‘lolol these darkies and their funny names’ shit

god how fucking disgusting, you people will come up with 89 alternate spellings for Ashley but laugh at children of color I hate this so much

I get shit like this all the time. My name is Maemaegawauhnse and when I was in kindergarten white people nicknamed me MaeMae. For a long time I felt stripped of something. I didnt like my nickname but people didnt respect me when I told them to call me Maemaegawauhnse because I was little. So fuck you. Names are important and for you to write it off as a “keyboard smash” is racist and shameful.

Akshajram isn’t even that difficult. “Ak-shaj-ram” OMDKDKFF SO DIFFICULT I HAD TO TWIST MY TONGUE INTO KNOTS IM SWEATING. Please get over yourselves.
get out of here with that disrespectful bs. what on earth made you think that PICKING ON and humiliating small children of colour was ever even mildly ok????? 

CALM DOWN everyone, if you check her blog it says she only posted it because her DAUGHTER’S NAME IS UP THERE. So everybody calm down, get your flowers back, have some tea. (of course you could think it’s racist but come on guys don’t create hate cause we’ve got enough of that)

What is up with white people and their ‘don’t create hate where it isn’t’ and ‘stop being offended at things which doesn’t affect me as a white person and therefore doesn’t matter’ stuff??? It’s like do these people have a functioning brain? Can they even read? “that.OMG I know. Half the kids were Indian. Literally half” is a comment clearly written by the poster after the keyboard smash comments and some lame person feels the need to tell people to calm down (when a cursory glance at the blog doesn’t seem to suggest any other posts to do with racism etc.) ?????

Horror stories about Muslim misogyny have long been used by western patriarchs to justify imperialism abroad and sexism at home. The Guardian’s Katharine Viner reminds us about Lord Cromer, the British consul general in Egypt from 1883. Cromer believed the Egyptians were morally and culturally inferior in their treatment of women and that they should be “persuaded or forced” to become “civilised” by disposing of the veil.

"And what did this forward-thinking, feminist-sounding veil-burner do when he got home to Britain?" asks Viner. "He founded and presided over the Men’s League for Opposing Women’s Suffrage, which tried, by any means possible, to stop women getting the vote. Colonial patriarchs like Cromer … wanted merely to replace eastern misogyny with western misogyny." More than a century later, the same logic is used to imply that misogyny only matters when it isn’t being done by white men.
