The FBI has added former Black Panther and former member of the Black Liberation Army, Assata Shakur, to its “most wanted terrorist” list. The decision is political and clearly aimed at the Cuban government, which granted political asylum to her after she escaped from prison in 1979. It also is an escalation of the government’s demonization of her for continuing to openly espouse radical political views, while in exile outside of the United States.

The Department of Justice isn’t prosecuting for “voter intimidation” two “Black Panthers” for standing outside a polling place during the 2008 election, and this is evidence that the Obama administration won’t protect white people from the terrible things that black people do. The election is a few months away, and this story drives a narrative of “voter fraud” by minorities, and that the Obama administration helps “them” and is against “real Americans” and their values.
