To Cornel West I say F*** YOU!
Just who the hell do you think you are to question President Obama's "blackness" ?
West is no more or less black than he is. He is no gatekeeper of what makes one black. But he might want to be the gatekeeper of a damned comb, or at least a pick. Hell just get a damned hair cut.
Oops sorry I know that was unnecessary but I am really pissed with West right now. I can't believe he would attack our president like this.
How can someone from academia who in all honesty leads a more privileged life than most of us reading this make comments about someones blackness or how they relate to other African Americans?
How many of you are professors who have their own radio show and appear regularly on cable news shows? Do you relate to someone who does?
Professor West believes that President Obama has a certain fear of free black men." and that "[Obama] feels most comfortable with upper middle-class white and Jewish men who consider themselves very smart, very savvy and very effective in getting what they want."
My first thought was how would West know any of that. Has he been around the president enough to come to ANY conclusions about him? Having professor in front of your name doesn't give you the ability to read minds.
It appears for all of West education has he has fell into the trap of expecting President Obama to be a "black president" and thus is becoming more of an enemy to President Obama than any conservative talking head.
Dr West, you really should know better.
But like momma always said , "You can be book smart and not have a damned lick of common sense."
