God Mama of Cuba Hip Hop/Poet Activist Nehanda Abiodun
I hope to be proven wrong. Obama, a Black Man was elected to the Presidency! Something that I never thought I would be privy to see in my lifetime so anything is possible. Praise God! (IAM)
Yet, what about Assata? What about Nehanda Abiodun, an Acupuncturist, political activist and Black Liberation Army member? What about her? She too resides in exile. She too is accused of crimes? Armored car vehicle robberies and aiding in the escape of Assata Shukur.
Will Americans allow them to be dragged back to America when their Cuban benefactors show themselves to be the capitalists they truly want to be? What about Justice? What about Fairness? These folks have received neither.
It would seem that we, including all too many political activists, who in their youth stood alongside of these people have forgotten or simply decided that the war is lost and they might as well have sold out. Some probably have. They forgot their friends behind the walls and across the ocean. The wrote and sold books and tshirts talking about the sixties as if what had occurred was over and done.

What about Eddie? What about Nehanda and Mutulu? What about Mumia?Maybe you feel that they are just bank robbers and cop killers and don't deserve anymore than a jail cell or worse. But Americans are supposed to care about Justice and Fairness. It's supposed to be in our DNA. Will you sleep knowing that you didn't do everything to make sure that Justice and Fairness was achieved? Don't allow yourself to sleep any longer not knowing for sure if these folks are truly innocent or guilty! Don't go any further if they just happened to support politics you don't like. This is not politics! JUSTICE NEVER IS!
Will You? Think on that?
BE Careful! BE Mindful! BE Prayerful!
