No, you are dead wrong Jonathan, it is racist, Harvard's assessment is correct...


Opposing Honors for Angela Davis Isn’t Racist


...That Harvard recently purchased a collection of her papers and memorabilia, including her “Wanted” poster, signals that as far as liberal elite culture is concerned, her role as an apologist for terrorist thugs at home and totalitarian tyrants abroad is considered just a colorful and even understandable aspect of the biography of someone who fought an unjust American system.
