President DonaldTrump has asked Cuba to return American fugitive AssataShakur to the United States, but a top Cuban official has said that the country's government has no plans to. "I can say it is off the table," Gustavo Machin, deputy director for American affairs at the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs, reportedly told Yahoo News. Assata Shakur was a member of the Black Panther Party in the 1960s and 1970s, and was convicted in 1977 of murdering a police officer. Many believe Shakur was targeted and framed by COINTELPRO, an FBI-sanctioned program that was used to neutralize people and organizations involved in the Civil Rights Movement (among others). Shakur served six and a half years in prison before escaping in 1979 and fleeing to Cuba, where she received political asylum from Fidel Castro. She has lived in Cuba ever since, and remains on the FBI's most wanted fugitives list, with a $2 million bounty. Artists like The Roots, Jay Z, and Common, who has a song titled "A Song For Assata," have all mentioned or paid homage to her legacy in their music. Last week, President Donald Trump revealed plans to cancel policy from the Obama Adminstration that eased longstanding tensions between America and Cuba. He then called for Cuba to "return the fugitives from American justice, including the return of the cop killer Joanne Chesimard," referring to Shakur by her former name. Machin said Cuba has no plans to return her to the U.S., because its government believes that she was unjustly imprisoned in the first place. “There are very serious doubts about that case," Machin said. "We consider that a politically motivated case against that lady."

Repost @knowledge_1s_power ・・・ 😷Friends don't let friends drink formaldehyde. PepsiCo (the parent brand of Naked drinks) settled a 9 million dollar lawsuit because they claimed their Naked drinks were all-natural. They actually were found to have a bunch of nasty chemicals in them including formaldehyde (keeps your dead body preserved- no thanks), Fibersol-2 (“a soluble corn fiber that acts as a low-calorie bulking agent”), fructooligosaccharides (an alternative sweetener), other artificial ingredients, such as calcium pantothenate (synthetically produced from formaldehyde), and genetically-modified soy. They never recalled the drinks off the shelves. They never reformulated. Wanna know what they did in compliance with the lawsuit? They had to remove the word "NATURAL" from the label.

Yeah, this fanbase is absolutely terrible (in general). My goal for this account was to just kind of have a happy place for the fans, and try my best to respect the crew and to be a good example, but man that so hard with people constantly demanding fan service, and harassing others, and seeing the crew as machines to just give them whatever exactly they want: Steven says "Bloodstone" is being selfish and just wanting things to happen to please himself. I really felt like Steven was talking to us as the fandom too when he said This is my life! Do you even care about that?" The fandom kind of demands certain things, like the pairings that are "acceptable" The way the fandom freaked over Zuke drawing a "Lapidot" Picture... The way people analyze and over analyze every aspect of the show, getting angry when episodes are "filler" and demanding the plot move forward. I think what Steven and the crewniverse were trying to say in this episode was summed up well. The show is about him, not us. It's about Rebecca Sugars vision, not about what we think is right or wrong. This fandom should be about love and acceptance. Yeah, this fanbase is absolutely terrible (in general).

I REALLY LOVE THIS STORY, SUCH A GREAT LESSON. My husband doesn't have a lot, neither of us do. We scrape and scrape to pay bills and put food in our bellies, but after almost 2 years of dating we decided that we couldn't wait anymore, so we didn't. I wasn't even thinking about rings, I just wanted to marry my best friend, but he wouldn't have it. He scraped up just enough money to buy me two matching rings from Pandora. Sterling silver and CZ to be exact. That's what sits on my ring finger, and I am so in love with them. . - While we were purchasing my rings however, another lady that was working there came over to help the lady selling them to us. She said, "Y'all can you believe that some men get these as engagement rings? How pathetic." When she said that I watched my now husband's face fall. He already felt like a failure, asking me again and again "Are you sure you'll be happy with these? Are you sure this is okay?" He was so upset at the idea of not making me happy enough and of me not wanting to marry him because my rings didn't cost enough money or weren't flashy enough. . - I said, "It isn't the ring that matters, it is the love that goes into buying one that is." We bought the rings and left. Y'all I would have gotten married to this man if it had been a 25¢ gum ball machine ring. When did our nation fall so far to think the only way a man can truly love a woman is if he buys her $3,000+ jewelry and makes a public decree of his affection with said flashy ring? Sure they are nice, sure the sentiment is wonderful and I'm not trying to cut down any of your experiences, but when did it come to all that? Why do material possessions equate love?? . - My husband was so afraid of me not wanting him because he couldn't afford a piece of jewelry. He was afraid that the love I have for him would pale because he couldn't afford the wedding set I wanted. The world has made it this way and it is so sad. But here I am though, Court-House married, $130 ring set, the love of my life by my side and happier than I could ever imagine." ▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃ @abed.alii 📝: "And We created you in pairs" Qur'an 78:8) I REALLY LOVE THIS STORY, SUCH A GREAT LESSON.
