Angela Davis: PBS Interview in 1998: "We can't think narrowly about movements for black liberation and we can't necessarily see this class division as simply a product or a certain strategy that black movements have developed for liberation.... We have to look at for example the increasing globalization of capital, the whole system of transitional capitalism now which has had an impact on black populations — that has for example eradicated large numbers of jobs that black people traditionally have been able to count upon and created communities where the tax base is lost now as a result of corporations moving to the third world in order to discover cheap labor."
Interview of Bobby Seale in 1996: "They
came down on us because we had a grass-roots, real people's revolution,
complete with the programs, complete with the unity, complete with the
working coalitions, we were crossing racial lines. That synergetic
statement of "All power to all the people," "Down with the racist pig
power structure" -- we were not talking about the average white person:
we were talking about the corporate money rich and the racist jive
politicians and the lackeys, as we used to call them, for the government
who perpetuates all this exploitation and racism."
