Cornel West: Obama not black enough

13Nov12

Cornel West blasts the president, and others, for not being black enough.

I’m glad there was not a right wing takeover, but we end up with a Rockefeller Republican in Blackface… Richard Nixon is to the left of him on healthcare… Richard Nixon is to the left of him on guaranteed income…

Of the black hosts on MSNBC (Melissa Harris Perry, Al Sharpton, Eric Michael Dyson), West says:

And we invite them back to the black prophetic tradition after Obama leaves. But at the moment, they want insider access, and they want to tell those kind of lies. They want to turn their back to poor and working people.
