This is just a little "get to know me" fact:

I was once told I was "inappropriate" by a Black Panther who is also a US Fugitive.

The year was 2001 and I was but a wee lassie in Cuba doing a study program.

The program set us up with lots of cool locals that told us their personal stories about living under the Castro dictatorship. One of the locals, who was really a "political exile"/fugitive on the FBI Most Wanted List, was Mama Nehanda (aka Nehanda Abiodun, aka Cheri Dalton).

She was also Tupac Shakur's babysitter and helped his aunt escape from prison and worked with his stepfather at an accupuncture center! Small world right? No it's not...that is all too random for words.

Anywho, back to me! We were talking about Tupac, rap, etc. I chimed in and asked her if she'd ever killed anyone. To which she told me I was too blunt and that it was a rude question. Being told you're too aggressive by a wanted fugitive might mean it is time reassess one's social skills.

Perhaps she was right. But when you tell me you're wanted by the FBI, I'm going to get curious.

I like to think that means her answer was NO. But she is in fact wanted for several felonies in the USA, so I can't really be sure!
