|Civil rights activist Angela Davis.|
By Editor & Publisher Jeff Brown.
Long time civil rights activist and academic Angela Davis stated recently in an interview with RT News, that she will be voting for Joe Biden. According to Davis, "Biden is far more likely to take the masses seriously. Far more likely than the current occupant of the White House. So this coming November, the election will ask us not so much to vote for the best candidate, but to vote for or against ourselves."
In an interview with Amy Goodman of Democracy Now, Davis stated, "We have to persuade people to go out and vote to guarantee that that the current occupant of the White House be forever ousted."
Goodman correctly described Angela Davis as a renowned abolitionist, author, activist, professor emerita at the University of California, Santa Cruz and author of many books."
The stance Davis is taking should illustrate to all on the far left that a practical approach to the up-coming presidential election is what is desperately needed and that this is certainly not the time to be philosophically rigid.
