Davis, a Black Panther and communist, discovered that both sides of her family were white and that her mother's ancestors were slave owners who arrived in the US on the Mayflower.

Conservative pundit Matt Walsh tweeted that Davis owes reparations to herself, as she is descended from both colonizers and slave owners. Another Twitter user called the situation "hilarious."
