Cornel West versus Al Sharpton on Obama

Filed under: Obama — louisproyect @ 7:19 pm


  1. Old argument…can’t support/can’t expect Democrats to carry out the message. As tough as it is to accept, we have to untether ourselves from the “Lesser Evil” mentality, go out and support alternatives to the two party system. No need to tongue-cluck all day long about it. Obama is playing the pacifier of the Ruling Class. End of discussion.

  4. Why should there be any debate- West for all of his so clled activism- he knows exactly how governing work- we have Obama an African-American President that West nor Sharpton initially supported- remember they wanted Hillary at first- so now Sharpton is with Obama and West wants to criticize- well other than the critical comments what has West done to make any of our lives better- he wants to act like he’s so fair and unbiased and will talk critically about Obama even though he is Black- so what are you reallytrying to prove Cornel- and how much bashing did you do with Bush??? I’m a litte sick of this- still acting like Obama has to prove hmself to AA community- stop it- Black people always trying to prove something to white people- the whole thing is so hypocritical- please take a seat!
