Assata Shakur: I want to win

“Smashing windows will do me no good. I am beyond that. I want blood. The tanks are waiting to crush the resistance, squelch the disturbance. It crosses my mind: I want to win. I don’t want to rebel, I want to win. The revolution will not be televised on the six o’clock news. I have to get myself ready. Revolution. The word has me going.”
