All you need to know about Assata Shakur is that she murdered a police officer.
Now look at what these impressionable black youths think passes for acceptable clothing. After all, nothing says tolerance like advocating for the mass death of cops!

Who is Assata? For the uninformed, she is Assata Shakur, a.k.a. Joanne Chesimard. This new fashion trend is a tribute to the cop-killing fugitive godmother of the late Tupac Shakur.
The former Black Panther and Black Liberation Army agitator has been a fugitive from justice for nearly 40 years and openly thumbs her nose at her victim’s family while living in Cuba as a political asylee. Congressional Black Caucus members have stubbornly protested extradition efforts, invoking the poisonous race card and deifying Chesimard as a “political prisoner.” Columbia University professor Marc Lamont Hill glorifies her as a “freedom fighter.”
Assata taught you to be a murderous thug? Wow!
Rapper Common was not allowed to speak at a university commencement because of his support for Shakur.
Glad that that school took a stand for ALL LIVES.
…In 1973, Chesimard shot and killed New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster execution-style during a traffic stop. The gunfight also left her brother-in-law, Black Liberation Army leader Zayd Malik Shakur, dead. At the time, the BLA had been tied to the murders of more than 10 police officers across the country. Chesimard, Zayd Shakur and another member were wanted for questioning in the murder of two of those cops when they were stopped.
Chesimard was convicted and sentenced to life in 1977, but escaped from prison two years later with help from violent left-wing accomplices. One of those thugs, Black Liberation Army killer Tyrone Rison, admitted to participating in a series of armored-car robberies, including a $250,000 heist in the Bronx on June 2, 1981, that left a Brink’s guard dead. Rison also confessed to taking part in the planning of the Rockland County, N.Y., $1.6 million Brink’s robbery by left-wing domestic terrorists on October 20, 1981. Police officers Waverly Brown and Edward O’Grady and Brink’s guard Peter Paige were murdered during the siege.
This is the person that is being idolized? Unreal!
Racial justice always takes precedent for victims, even if the person they’re honoring is a criminal.
What kind of twisted logic is that? It’s downright revolting that anyone would celebrate the life of a murderer.
Shakur was not a hero like Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. Shakur is a cold-blooded killer without remorse. She was not “fighting” for our freedoms.
I need a Assata Taught Me shirt like now. Like… Right now.
