Re:  Interview with Dr. Monteiro

Angela Davis was mentioned during the interview.  These days, Davis is no better than Skip Gates as both are infused with Obama kool-aid.  I've seen/read more than one article and interview where Davis spews socio babble to cheerlead for Obomber.

Dr. Monteiro talked about students being afraid to voice dissent.  That may be true for some but for far more, the dissent is not there because they are clueless as to what is really going on.  Like their non-college going brethren, they've been reared on mainstream media propaganda and nonexistent political education in schools.  The students at Temple may know alot about Mumia, but it's safe to bet next month's rent that 75% or more of college students don't know who he is or can hold an intelligent conversation on 90% of what is covered by BAR.  Everyone has the latest techno gadgets but few are accessing true indy sources like BAR, Counterpunch,, and  Even if you tell them about such indy info, a great many will dismiss these sources at the same rate as their less educated brethren.
