Angela Davis was shocked to learn that her ancestors came to America on the Mayflower, making her descendants of people who helped found the country.
The civil rights activist learned about this news during the Feb. 21 episode of PBS’s Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Gates shows her a manifest of names, eventually revealing that the document had the names of the Mayflower passengers.

“No, I can’t believe this,” she said, laughing through her surprise. “My ancestors did not come here on the Mayflower.”
When asked how she felt about the news, Davis said, “…That’s a little bit too much to deal with right now.”
Watch the clip below. The full episode is available for streaming on PBS.

Let’s see her demand reparations now!
How is it documented?
Just my opinion: Davis should have been sent to the gas chamber 40 years ago.
Probably by mitochondrial DNA.
This could be a funny twist to the reparations movement. Most US blacks are more white than I am.
Notice it’s always the light-skinned blacks that are the most radical.
Mitochondrial? That would mean her pilgrim ancestor was a woman.
I think, though, you’re correct that it was DNA.
Well, so did one of mine. John Howland. A few million others in the USA can say the same. They were a prolific group, were those Pilgrims.
Angela “Whitey” Davis now understands her strange urge to smoke ‘um peace pipe.
Murdering Communist bitch.
This makes total sense, because we live in an age where history is being totally re-written by screenplay writers and google (the ministry of truth), They are just making stuff up out of fantasy and calling it history, with a bias to demonize those who contributed the most to civilization and transfer credit for advancement to the newly emerging “Wokeness Cult”
Better not be Winslow!
Sounds very inconvenient for The Narrative.
Her ancestors were the Brewsters. Thankfully, there are none in my tree. George Soule, my 9th great-grandfather came over on the Mayflower.
Angela Davis is very light skinned. She looks half European to me. Maybe some American Indian too
So she’s really Angela Dolezal?!
Ben Affleck was on "Finding Your Roots". When he earned he had three slave-owning ancestors, he demanded Gates withhold that information from the the show. When it was discovered that PBS had left that info out, they tried to use the excuse that "they'd found other people in his tree that made for a better narrative." Horse Hockey!
