A renowned Black Panther who’s also a communist has faced calls to pay reparations after unearthing her ancestors were white puritans who arrived in the US on the Mayflower.
Angela Davis, 79, was astonished to find out that both sides of her family were white, and that her mom’s ancestors were slave owners, on PBS show Finding Your Roots.
And the remarkable revelations provoked calls for the famously woke Marxist University of California professor to herself pay reparations, having formerly called on whites to pay up in the past.
Sharing a tweet about the show, conservative pundit Matt Walsh wrote: ‘It gets better. She’s also descended from a slave owner. On her father’s side is a pilgrim. On her mother’s side is a slave owner. Looks like Angela Davis owes some reparations.’
Another Twitter user called AK Kamara wrote: ‘Angela Davis, the radical Marxist and former black panther, recently discovered she is also the ancestor of colonizers and slave owners. I guess she owes herself reparations. This timeline is hilarious.’
It gets better. She's also descended from a slave owner. On her father's side is a pilgrim. On her mother's side is a slave owner. Looks like Angela Davis owes some reparations. https://t.co/JuPld361Kg

After the FBI issued a warrant for her arrest she went on the run and became listed as one of the department’s 10 Most Wanted. After her eventual arrest she spent 16 months in jail before being found not guilty.
Davis was born in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1944 during an era of segregation and violent racial division in the South.
While studying in West Germany in her youth she was drawn to far-left politics and upon returning to the US became involved with the Black Panthers and the Communist Party USA.
She appeared shocked during the TV interview that aired this week in which Finding Your Roots host Henry Louis Gates, Jr. told her of her ancestry.
‘No. I can’t believe this. My ancestors did not come here on the Mayflower,’ she said – only to be later told that they did indeed arrive in the US aboard the famed pilgrim ship.
The Mayflower was an English boat that brought white English families, known as the Pilgrims, to the American continent to permanently establish the New England colony in 1620.
‘You are descended from the 101 people who sailed on the Mayflower,’ reiterated Gates Jr., who is the director of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research at Harvard University.
