Ok.. I'll do that next time. Though I dont know if it was "rightwing"
propaganda so much as liberal.. liberals, after all, support capitalism.

I think, however, that the article brought up some important points,
because the black population does not seem to support Mumia openly.. I
dont hear rap songs about Mumia, for example.  It's a shame... and I think
the Mumia movement needs to be more critical of itself and figure out why
it is alienating black people...
