Angela Davis: “Capitalism is racial capitalism”


 

They are coming out of the woodwork. Those that have been promulgating the destruction of our country and we need to pay attention. Decades of their hard work is coming to fruition. We were warned.  Angela, an avowed Marxist has been spinning her wares in colleges educating our youngins in the finer points of revolution.

Educator and activist Angela Davis (1944-) became known for her involvement in a politically charged murder case in the early 1970s. Influenced by her segregated upbringing in Birmingham, Alabama, Davis joined the Black Panthers and an all-black branch of the Communist Party as a young woman. She became a professor at UCLA, but fell out of favor with the administration due to her ties. Davis was charged with aiding the botched escape attempt of imprisoned black radical George Jackson, and served roughly 18 months in jail before her acquittal in 1972. After spending time traveling and lecturing, Davis returned to the classroom as a professor and authored several books.

 

She hasn’t mellowed. The latest:

 

Scroll down a paragraph at the link for an interview that reveals more at

Subtext:

In an exclusive interview with Al Jazeera’s Steve Clemons last week, veteran American Angela Davis offered some crucial insights into the meaning of the Black Lives Matter rebellion, its place in history and the strategic challenges it faces. In the interview, she honors “the impact of these amazing gatherings that have happened everywhere in the world in response to the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery and Tony McDade and Rayshard Brooks and others,” and considers how this movement might transform American institutions.

……

“Of course, the real work happens after the dramatic demonstrations … what we’re going to have to do is to take up each institution, schools for example. The demand to get cops out of schools is so important because schools, especially in Black neighborhoods and neighborhoods of other communities of color, have begun to replicate the environment of police stations and prisons. So this is the beginning, I’m hoping, of a long process of self-examination and transformation of the institutions that constitute society.

“And I want to talk about the importance of understanding the impact of global capitalism, because that is often the elephant in the room that is largely responsible for the seemingly perpetual existence of racism. Capitalism is racial capitalism, and I think we need to confront that today and move in the direction of envisioning and hopefully building a socialist society.”

…..

On U.S. electoral politics

“I have many critiques, of course, of the Republican Party, particularly given its turn toward white nationalism and racism and misogyny. But I think the Democratic Party is also very problematic, especially in its connection with global and corporate capitalism. I don’t think we can assume that any candidate from that party, much less the one who is running now, will lead us in the radical direction I think we should be moving in. However … it is absolutely essential to vote. It is through the electoral process that we will oust the existing president.

 

Other than that, all is well in the swamp.

    This is such a recurring nightmare…having lived through the first round in the ’60’s and ’70’s. Ayers and Dohrn had Obama resurrect these insurrectionists with Soros’ assistance. I hope we all wake up soon and the nightmare is gone….lots of work to be done to make that happen.

    It is impossible to unite a minority group without also creating an enemy to hate and destroy. Black theology is Marxism, pure and simple. Given the weak-minded people within these communities, it was relatively simple for Negro leaders to solidify their base, which unfortunately rests around 85% of the total population. These leaders have achieved untold wealth through the creation of racial division and the fear of mainstream society; they created an enemy where (mostly) none exist, which I suppose could be an example of black capitalism. Let’s pretend for a moment that every one of Angela Davis’ arguments are true (as opposed to mere perception). Does she change the lives of “her people” from the outside, or from within the mainstream of society? If she wants to improve the plight of the American Negro, doing so is pig-simple. But improving race relations and social inclusion isn’t her schtick. Time for a reality check, folks. Keeping black folk uneducated and on the Democratic Party’s plantation benefits no one more than their black leaders and morons such as Biden. Of course, good luck getting anyone in the black community to understand the insidiousness of their more popular leaders. I’ve never quite understood why anyone with two brain cells would listen to anything Jackson, Sharpton, or Davis tells them. But then, I’m white, ugly, and no doubt a racist.

      With Black unemployment for a time reaching all time lows, one would think that even the undereducated blacks could have put two and two together. Apparently they are more than happy to stay on the plantation of their own making. The final convulsion of this anarchy endeavor will leave them worse off beyond their wildest dreams. They cities will turn into their worse nightmares…. a lesson has been given in Seattle…for all to see yet the MSM did not report this so few have been witness to the lesson. The breakdown of a society is not a pretty thing…grab a history book or two and read how this has gone down before.

      Malcolm X tried to educate them and wound up murdered at a young age They (the black folks of all persuasion) don’t want change. They simply do not want change. People trying to educate them today are demonized. Sowell, Owens, and all the others who try to lift them out of slavery – demonized.

      Hey, I’m more of a racist than you man. Don’t know about the ugly.

        Au contraire, they do want change, the change in your pocket, the change from the parking meters and the pay phones they’ve vandalized (showing my age.) Inter generational poverty and ignorance institutionalized by the man I have put at the top of the worst US presidents ever list, above Carter, Obama and Wilson, LBJ and his Great Society. The gift that keeps on giving and giving and giving.
        These fools will subsist on what after they’ve murdered the golden cow and the goose that keeps laying their golden eggs? Whose going to buy their drugs and their groceries and their Pampers? Maybe Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos, maybe The Rothschilds and the Rockefellers using Soros as their bagman as he is now? They almost deserve what’s waiting for them at the end of the line when there’s nothing left to feed them with; I believe its called genocide.

    All of this crap is about destroying Capitalism. Why? Failure loves company? Success is like sunlight to a vampire? Hell if I know.

    Here is a statement excerpt by the then head f the UN IPCC regards the global warming scam.

    “The alarmists keep telling us their concern about global warming is all about man’s stewardship of the environment. But we know that’s not true. A United Nations official has now confirmed this.

    At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

    “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.”

      Before we were the underground conspiracy nuts with tin foil… Now it is coming out but the ship has sailed long ago and whether we can reverse course is up for grabs. We stay optimistic otherwise……

    Oh the irony…she claims racism, but yet, her she is profiting off of it. Glad to see all is well in the swamp, and nothing has changed. Wake up folks, this is the play book until Nov.
