    It would not surprise me.

    The thing they don't like about Angela is that she was brilliant, she could think, she was about substantial change, and she was not going to sell out. She wasn't someone they could wrap in a nice package and use to put forward the agenda of enriching the few at the expense of the majority.

    Of course she is dangerous to such people because Angela is one of those very intelligent people that has the ability to make others actually think about how a few rich people are exploiting everyone else without any regard to the welfare of those they exploit. The reality is that real wages have stagnated while the wealthy have significantly increased their wealth. The resulting income inequality manifests itself with people having to work sometimes two and three jobs, just to survive. But if you say that, such people will say that you are only lazy and that you are not working hard enough. I always say that trickle down economics will go down in history as one of the biggest scams of all time. Give me all your money and I will trickle it back down to you. What an amazing idea. Angela has opposed all that, that's why she was persecuted.

You wouldn't be caught dead calling them brilliant, or fawning over them.
    Can you actually provide some references that show that Angela Davis advocated the violent overthrow of the government and fomented race riots?

    I really like Angela Davis. I wish she were running for president. Here's some words of wisdom from one of the great minds of the 21st century

    “It may be helpful to have these moments when we recognize that racism is still very much embedded in the psyches of so many people in this country. But to think that we can deal with it simply by addressing particular individuals and not think about the fact that, as a society, we bear the imprint of that historical racism — I’m much more interested in having conversations about the way the structures of racism continue to operate.

    “Even though people who express racist ideas may be treated in the way Donald Sterling is being treated, that doesn’t address, for example, the impact of [anti-affirmative action Proposition] 209 — that there are proportionally fewer black students on campuses than during the 1970s.”
    Right on Angela Davis!!!!!
