Like Cher and cockroaches

I wondered what had happened to the “social activist.”

“Social activist Angela Y. Davis will speak at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock today.”

(That’s all there is there, unless you want to fork over $100 for a year’s subscription.)

“Davis is a Distinguished Professor Emerita of history of consciousness, an interdisciplinary graduate program, and of feminist studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz. She is an advocate for women’s rights and a founding member of Critical Resistance, a national organization dedicated to the dismantling of the prison industrial complex.”

Comments at second link: #1. She is a committed Communist. #2. Racist liar!

Davis is “an iconic figure in the social activist movement of the 1960s and 1970s,” so says a news release from UALR.

I’m not going. It’s about 17 miles, and besides, The Big Bang Theory is on tonight.
