    The Trump campaign says it invited long-dead rapper Tupac Shakur to attend the Wednesday vice presidential debate — in a bid to troll Democrat Joe Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris. “I can confirm that we have left a ticket for Tupac Shakur, who as we know is Sen. Harris’ favorite rapper alive,” Trump campaign senior adviser Jason Miller told reporters on a conference call previewing the debate between Harris (D-Calif.) and Vice President Mike Pence. ... Harris was asked in a CNN interview last month who the “best rapper alive” is and replied “Tupac,” before adding, “Not alive, I...
  • Why KY's Democratic Governor Had To Apologize to This Man Waiting on Unemployment Benefits

    Kentucky’s Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear has had his highs and lows. I’m sure no one took kindly to the fact that he ordered police to take down the license tags of parishioners who were out celebrating their Easter service. He then held a presser, where he called out those who were trying to defraud the unemployment benefits system by filing under false names, like Tupac Shakur.  “We had somebody apply for unemployment for Tupac Shakur here in Kentucky, and that person may have thought they were being funny, they probably did. Except for the fact that because of them, we...

    <p>Sen. Kamala Harris got rapped for getting her rap eras mixed up when she told radio interviewers that she listened to Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur while smoking pot in college — even though she graduated in 1986, years before they hit the scene.</p>

    Did Colin Kaepernick Donate $25,000 to a Group Honoring Assata Shakur?

Colin Kaepernick made a $25,000 donation to an activist group named after Assata Shakur, who was convicted in the murder of a police officer. TRUE!

    --snip-- Reviled by law enforcement and revered by Fidel Castro, who granted her political asylum, Shakur embodies America's commitment to retrieve its fugitives and Cuba's commitment to grant sanctuary to people it deems persecuted dissidents. "Cuba not only is refusing to hand her over; it is refusing, at least publicly, to make the topic of extradition part of these negotiations," said Teishan Latner, a former fellow at New York University's Center for the United States and the Cold War, where he researched the relationship between Cuba and left wing groups in America for a forthcoming book.

    At least 60 faculty and staff members at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, have signed a petition demanding that the Catholic college keep a mural of a cop killer and an FBI designated terrorist on a wall in the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center. Assata Shakur is the aunt of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur, who was the victim of a 1996 drive-by shooting Assata Shakur, formerly known as Joanne Chesimard, is a former Black Panther and member of the Black Liberation Army. She escaped a U.S. prison and fled to Cuba after shooting and killing New Jersey State Trooper Werner...
  • NJ State Police "Outraged" Over Rapper Invited to White House (Praised Fugitive Cop Killer)

    The invitation of rapper Common to a White House this week is drawing the ire of the union representing New Jersey state police. While not even casual hip-hop fans would characterize him as a controversial rapper, Common found himself under the microscope after First Lady Michelle Obama invited him to the White House for an arts event. FOX News and Sarah Palin criticized the decision after the Daily Caller published some of Common's lyrics, including some that criticize President George W. Bush. For Jersey police, the outrage centers on a song by Common about Assata Shakur, formerly known as Joanne...

    Before we even got out of the gate, the Cubans were saying that giving up convicted terrorist and cop killer Joanne Chesimard was a non-starter because they have the right to protect persecuted fugitives who seek asylum. (And here I was worried that this might not work out…) But even if the Castros won’t surrender her peacefully, is it possible that we might just be able to grab her once we have more of an official presence in Havana? If so, some of the regular citizens might be willing to pitch in and help, particularly if there’s a couple...

    A 43-year-old DeKalb man was charged this week with the recent vandalism of a statue of Tupac Shakur at the arts center named for the slain performer. DeKalb police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said investigators have no reason to believe the suspect, Kenneth Anthony Wilson, had a racial motive in the Oct. 20 incident. Wilson, who lives on North Hairston Road near the center on Memorial Drive, is African-American. A spokeswoman for the center last week said she was told a noose was placed around the neck of the statue and the incident was being investigated as a hate crime. Parish...

    New Criminologist ^ | 09 December 2005
    US congresswoman Cynthia McKinney is pushing for the public disclosure of all government records related to the life and death of Tupac Shakur. The Georgia state representative has introduced a bill before congress, entitled 'The Tupac Amaru Shakur Records Collection Act of 2005', which calls for the "expeditious disclosure" of those records. The bill is modelled on 1992's John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act which mandates that all material relating to the late president's assassination be housed in one complete collection. If it becomes law, it will mean that the Tupac records will be gathered together in the National...

    Scandal Erupts at the L.A. Times By Jan Golab | December 2, 2005 Times are bad at the L.A. Times. Competition from new media and “a lingering feeling of bias” continue to plague the paper and drive down circulation. Editors John Carroll, Michael Kinsley and leftist icon Robert Scheer have all recently been sent packing. Now, the once venerable paper faces a scandal of Jayson Blair proportions, one that may topple key players—including a Pulitzer Prize winner—and permanently sully its reputation. The Times’ questionable coverage of the Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. (AKA Biggie Smalls) murders has long been...

    After 9/11, everyone knew there was going to be a debate about the future of Islam. We just didn't know the debate would be between Osama bin Laden and Tupac Shakur. Yet those seem to be the lifestyle alternatives that are really on offer for poor young Muslim men in places like France, Britain and maybe even the world beyond. A few highly alienated and fanatical young men commit themselves to the radical Islam of bin Laden. But most find their self-respect by embracing the poses and worldview of American hip-hop and gangsta rap. One of the striking things about...
