Afro Marxist: 'Angela Davis on Cuba, Fidel Castro and the U.S Embargo'

Source:Afro Marxist- Professor and New-Left political activist Angela Davis, talking about Cuba.

"Angela Davis talks about her experiences in Cuba and her feelings about Fidel Castro. She discusses Cuban Americans and her opposition to the US embargo."

From Afro Marxist 

Just to give you a little background on Professor Angela Davis: she was one of the first early victims of political correctness in America. Not coming from the Far-Left, where of course Professor Davis was a self-described Communist up until the late 1970s or 80s, but coming from the Far-Right that literally wanted to put her in prison for being a Communist and someone who was a professor at the University of California Los Angeles in the late 1960s and 70s. California law enforcement tried to tie her to bank robberies that were going on back then, but had no real evidence against her. 

Professor Davis is essentially making the argument here that the problems with Cuba are America's fault, and not, gee I don't know, the Marxist-Communist regime in Cuba that's held back the Cuban people freedom for the last sixty years. 

I'm against the embargo against Cuba as well, but to argue that the embargo is what's holding back Cuba, when the rest of the developed world trades with Communist Cuba and has relations with Communist Cuba, is ludicrous. Besides, if the Communist system is a progressive as it's supposed to be (which of course it isn't) you think Cuba could overcome one embargo from one country.
