“Ooh, momma,  those black cats are out back again”: A terse response to “get up for the down stroke”

The following text has been received from Chairman Shaka Zulu of the NABPP-PC:

What is a correct land policy for the New Afrikan Black Panther Party (NABPP)? Sanyika Shakur raises this question in his critique of Comrade Rashid’s article, “Black Liberation in the 21st Century: A Revolutionary Reassessment of Black Nationalism.”

MIM(Prisons): Reconciling Stalin with the Conditions of New Afrika Today

This review of Sanyika Shakur’s book Stand Up Struggle Forward is by Wiawimawo of MIM(Prisons). It is being reposted from http://www.prisoncensorship.info/news/all/US/1926

While we recommended his fictional T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E., and his autobiographical Monster is a good read on the reality of life in a Los Angeles lumpen organization, Shakur’s third book is most interesting to us as it provides an outline of his political line as a New Afrikan communist.… Read the rest
