Angela Davis: “Capitalism is racial capitalism”

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


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.

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.
