Longtime Communist Party USA member Angela Davis, the 1960s radical who twice was the party’s nominee for vice president, is calling Barack Obama a black radical, raising objections from her fellow travelers.
Davis, who also was associated with the Black Panther Party and was acquitted of murder charges in 1970, said the Obama election was a “victory, not of an individual, but of … people who refused to believe that it was impossible to elect a person, a black person, who identified with the black radical tradition.”
She said it was good to see people “dancing in the streets” over Obama.
The comments were reported by Glen Ford of the Black Agenda Report,who declared: “Angela Davis Has Lost Her Mind Over Obama.”
