Black Panther communist Angela Davis — who teaches that U.S. was built by racist colonizers — finds her ancestors include white puritans and slave owners. By Neiren Gray.
A famed Black Panther who’s also a communist has faced calls to pay reparations after discovering her ancestors were white puritans who arrived in the US on the Mayflower.
Angela Davis, 79, was flabbergasted to discover both sides of her family were white, and that her mom’s ancestors were slave owners, on PBS show Finding Your Roots.
And the stunning revelations sparked calls for the famously woke Marxist University of California professor to herself pay reparations, having previously called on whites to pony-up in the past.
Sharing a tweet about the show, conservative pundit Matt Walsh wrote: ‘It gets better. She’s also descended from a slave owner. On her father’s side is a pilgrim. On her mother’s side is a slave owner. Looks like Angela Davis owes some reparations.’
Davis became nationally known in 1970 when guns she owned were used in the holding up of a Marin County courtroom in California which left four dead, including the judge.
After the FBI issued a warrant for her arrest she went on the run and became listed as one of the department’s 10 Most Wanted. After her eventual arrest she spent 16 months in jail before being found not guilty.
She appeared shocked during the TV interview that aired this week in which Finding Your Roots host Henry Louis Gates, Jr. told her of her ancestry.
‘No. I can’t believe this. My ancestors did not come here on the Mayflower,’ she said — only to be later told that they did indeed arrive in the US aboard the famed pilgrim ship.
Reparations don’t seem like such a fun game now, do they?
College admission season update – From a friend:
“Niece got 1450 SAT, 4.2 GPA, competitive athlete. She didn’t even get into her safety schools. Going to junior college this year and is very depressed. The POC kids in her class, C students at best, are all headed to Berkeley, UCLA, USC, and Stanford.”
Imagine starting out life with the lesson that no matter how hard you work, no matter what you do, you can’t succeed on the merits.
There’s going to be a revolution.
