The last thread of respect that I have for Dr. Cornel West is barely beyond a withered strand. I have respect for his focus on the plight of the nations poor and disenfranchised. I respect his intellect, and his commitment in utilizing his intelligence to inform others of the economic injustice(s) that nearly brought Wall Street to its once almost broken knees. What I don’t have respect for, is his continued, and most often- unnecessary, uncouth criticism of The POTUS.
From his accusations that Barack Obama is somehow not representative of “Real Blackness,” to his insinuations regarding the use of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr‘s bible at this weeks historic inauguration, West has been the ultimate hemorrhoid, consistently protruding, and provoking the backside of nearly everything labeled Obama. No one in their right mind agrees with others on every single issue, especially when discussing issues of politics, poverty and their respective roles in our nations progress. I’m with Reverend Al Sharpton concerning the hater-aid of hypocrisy that seems to have deluged the minds of both West, and Tavis Smiley. There HAS too be more than meets the eye regarding their stance against the president. Check out the link above for further proof of the good doctor’s not so well-intentioned insight into what should have been a most glorious, and historic Monday-in late January. ~Daryl
