Right Coast: PBS Host Cornel West: "Barack Obama A ‘Republican In Blackface"

Right Coast: PBS Host Cornel West: Obama A ‘Republican In Black...: Via Mediaite : During an interview last week with  Democracy Now , author and activist Cornel West offered harsh criticism of President...

Its statements like this that make it hard for serious Democrats such as myself to name someone and others to. Take Progressives if you want to call Cornel West that, even though he's so far left and irresponsible at times. With statements like this, Progressive might not be the right word for him, he seems to have this idea that unless. African Americans are either as far to the left and as Socialist as him or they aren't even really as African American as him. Even if their complexion is darker then Dr. West's which is crazy, the African American community is not monolithic politically. You have the Cornel West's and other Democratic Socialists of th
e World, Representative Maxine Waters would be another and then you have Progressives. Like Reverend Jesse Jackson, Representative John Lewis and others who share Dr. West's political goals but. Are more careful with what they say politically and can speak to a broader audience.

Cornel West is not a problem solver but a movement mover, more interested in keeping a movement alive rather. Then advancing the cause of the movement with real policy achievements and problem solving policies, I sorta hate to put it this way. But Dr. West is sorta like the Jesse Helms of the left and even far left, someone more interested in advancing a cause. And keeping a movement alive, rather then having policy achievements and objectives they can point to.
