Friday the Day by day Mail said that Colin Kaepernick donated $25,000 to a Chicago space workforce referred to as Assata’s Daughters.
Kaepernick, who’s widely recognized for his protests towards police throughout the nationwide anthem as a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, made the donation as a part of his pledge to donate $one hundred,000 a month for 10 months to ‘businesses running in oppressed groups’…
Kaepernick’s basis distinct that $2,500 of the donation might pass to Cop Watch, a software that trains volunteers to practice and video cops.
Some other $15,000 is earmarked for ‘youngster workshops’.
Assata’s Daughters is known as for convicted assassin Joanne Chesimard aka Assata Shakur. The crowd’s website online lists loose systems they provide together with one for fundamental faculty women:
Thru our Akerele software, we introduce younger women, a while four-12 to Assata Shakur and her progressive politic and love of Black folks. Akerele take part in workshops that train them approximately energy and oppression, and lend a hand them be mindful their position in an extended historical past of Black freedom preventing. We additionally supply possibilities and improve to lend a hand them faucet into their talents as leaders and long run organizers within the greater motion for Black liberation.
As I wrote in July, Assata Shakur used to be a member of the violent Black Liberation Military who used to be convicted of the homicide of a police officer. Right here’s an outline of her crime from the FBI’s listing of so much sought after terrorists (she is the primary lady to make the listing):
On Would possibly 2, 1973, Chesimard, who used to be a part of a innovative extremist group referred to as the Black Liberation Military, and accomplices have been stopped for a motor car violation at the New Jersey Turnpike by way of soldiers with the New Jersey State Police. On the time, Chesimard used to be sought after for her involvement in a few felonies, together with financial institution theft. Chesimard and her accomplices opened fireplace at the soldiers. One trooper used to be wounded and the opposite used to be shot and killed execution-taste at aspect-clean vary. Chesimard fled the scene, however used to be therefore apprehended. One among her accomplices used to be killed within the shoot-out and the opposite used to be additionally apprehended and is still in prison.
In 1977, Chesimard used to be discovered accountable of first level homicide, attack and battery of a police officer, attack with a perilous weapon, attack with reason to kill, unlawful ownership of a weapon, and armed theft. She used to be sentenced to lifestyles in jail. On November 2, 1979, Chesimard escaped from jail and lived underground sooner than being situated in Cuba in 1984. She is assumed to lately nonetheless be dwelling in Cuba.
A few have argued that Chesimard used to be wrongly convicted, however even though that have been actual there’s no denying that she used to be a part of a company, the Black Liberation Military, whose objective used to be a violent revolution, the homicide of cops, and financial institution theft (to fund the revolution). From the Global Centre for the Have a look at of Radicalisation and Political Violence:
The crowd made its violent debut in June 1971 with a device-gun assault on New York policemen guarding the Big apple district lawyer’s condo. days later, cops have been shot to dying whilst on patrol in Harlem. In a letter brought to native media, the BLA introduced that “the armed goons of this racist executive will once more meet the weapons of oppressed 3rd Global Peoples so long as they occupy our group and homicide our brothers and sisters within the identify of American regulation and order.”
During is lifestyles, the BLA framed its violent assaults on police as a valid reaction to the forces of colonial profession within the country’s ghettos. As Shakur declared, “[o]ur backs are towards the wall [and]now greater than ever we’d like a military to shield ourselves and struggle for our liberation.” All the way through the following 3 years, the BLA wounded or murdered policemen in New York, New Haven, Philadelphia, Atlanta and St. Louis. The BLA’s space of operations prolonged so far as San Francisco. In August 1971, participants performed a string of financial institution robberies, tried to homicide a policeman, and fixed a 9-individual assault on a precinct space that left a police officer lifeless.
Assata Shakur is a household terrorist and a convicted assassin. The truth that teams of small children are being indoctrinated to respect her and her politics is annoying. The truth that Colin Kaepernick helps this will have to inform you one thing approximately the place his protest of the nationwide anthem is coming from.
