Get this book y'all! The FBI WAR on Tupac Shakur and Black Leaders. It details how our freedom loving United States government targeted an attacked leaders and activists such as Bob Marley, Fred Hampton, Assata Shakur, Afeni Shakur, Jimi Hendrix, Huey P Newton and many many more who were subject to COINTELPRO and cointelpro style tactics of repression and neutralization. There’s a documentary tied in with the book as well that I have posted up on several occasions.
In 1943, a single early Panther Ausf D, along with a single PzKpfw VI Tiger H1 was sold to Japan, but both were never delivered due to the war situation and were loaned by Japan to the German Army. Japanese engineers had several opportunities to visit Germany to experiment and study the German war machines, however, and it is evident that these studies greatly influenced Japanese blueprints and future tank designs. Both were unknowingly destroyed by the Russians in combat.
[Tupac] My Mother never let me forget my history Hoping I was set free chains never put on me Wanted to be more than just free Had to know the true facts about my history I couldn’t settle for being a statistic Couldn’t survive in this capitalistic Government cause it was meant to hold us back Using ignorance, drugs and sneak attacks In my community they killed the unity But when I charged them, tried to claim immunity I strike America like a case of heart disease Panther power is running through my arteries Try to stop home boy you’ll be clawed to death Cause I’ll be fighting for my freedom with my dying breath Do you remember that’s what I’m asking you? You think you living free don’t make me laugh at you Open your eyes realize you been locked in chains Said you wasn’t civilized and stole your name Cause some time has passed seem to all forget There ain’t no liberty for you and me we all ain’t free yet
“In America we receive fragments of unrelated knowledge and our education follows no logical format or pattern. It is exactly this kind of education that produces people who don’t have the ability to think for themselves and who are easily manipulated.” -Assata: An Autobiography
