“This is why he was killed and his surveillance records need to be released. This is why all HipHoppers in the early stages were tracked by the police in modern-day COINTELPRO; when consciousness (motive) meets charisma (opportunity) meets money (resources to make a movement happen), USA power structure feels that it has a problem. Hence, the Ms. Lauryn Hill treatment if you’re lucky, the Tupac treatment if you’re not. Look at what Hip Hop has left standing.

MLK records still have not been released, nor Tupac’s. Where’s Congress? Where’s truth?” – Cynthia McKinney
About Cynthia McKinney
Cynthia McKinney has made a career of speaking her mind and challenging authority. She began on day one of her political life and hasn’t looked back. With her opinions, actions, and even her sense of style, McKinney has inspired both admiration and controversy.
During her second term, her district was re-drawn and re-numbered the 4th district. McKinney protested the new boundaries, but was still reelected to the seat. She was a supporter of a Palestinian State in Israel-occupied territory, and sparked controversy by criticizing American policy in the Middle East. After 9/11, McKinney suggested the President had received warnings. The criticism she received as a result, combined with being targeted by the pro-Israel lobby, contributed to her defeat in the 2002 election; however, she ran for the seat again and was re-elected in 2004.
