Those Who Attack Cornel West….Can They Actually Defend Their Point of View?

cornel-obama

 

by Dr. Boyce Watkins

Some are up in arms over Cornel West and his most recent critique of the Obama Administration.  During the Smiley and West radio show this week, Professor West asked if Barack Obama and other Washington politicians would be so sensitive to gun violence were it not for the fact that the Sandy Hook kids were white.  Here is part of what Dr. West had to say:

“They’re either cowards or hypocrites when it comes to this issue of our precious children. By cowards I mean they care but they don’t have the courage to move forward and act. Or they’re hypocrites which is to say they say they care but deep down they don’t care especially when it relates to South Side of Chicago, Harlem, children across the board…”

    @Olivette. There are many but one book which I am currently reading is How Europe Underdeveloped Africa, written by an African Scholar who was assassinated by europeans and betrayed by his so called friend yet another example of how european used or coerced other Africans to betray their own for a few “dollars” or position, sound familiar?
    We are making this film too contraversial but it is not different from any other film that gives us anesthesia to cope with how they continue to keep us dependent of them while saying we are lazy and dont want to work or do for self. The new buzz work in employment is that we dont have the skill base to do the jobs they currently have; Sound familiar?
    How long will we feel good and fuzzy because we are seen in a movie k**k the h**l out of white people. The true victory is the get off our behinds and support black business and join a black organization so that we depend on ourselves and demand the kind of movies we really want to see, movies that will raise our consciousess and lead us towards true independance, Not these d**n fairy tales about psuedo liberation. In fact the film maker had to easy white peoples mind that we dont go postal because of it. But it is a p***y cat film and my suspect is a sterile account of the slavery question. Who gives a d**n that you or your great grand daddy wasnt directly involved in this trade, so many of you are benefactors of it and are taught to have no conscious about. In fact, Africans are taught that we are the cause of our own demise. Some truth to it but who are the architects of the deception. That is what we have to realize.

    No… I havent seen it. Especially on any of these sites..

    I see Obama Apologists attacking the messenger..

    The 1 thing I would say to Cornel is that he should pull back on terms he uses to describe the president. It hurts the feelings of people who love the president above everything else, even themselves.

    The president is serve his masters, so we need to worry about us, not him.

    President Barack Obama, multiple members of the Congressional Black Caucus, other elected black leaders at the State and Local branches of government, U.S Supreme Court Clarence Thomas, etc., etc., have contempt for the sworn oath of office, the Constitution, the rule of law, and the United States of America.

    There are truly possible and legal ways to acquire assets from the affluent, a business owner, other individuals, private and public entities who or that v*****e the Constitutional rights of U.S. citizens and legal immigrants, that could be used for the benefit of the disenfranchised, but this requires respect for the Constitution, the “oath of office”, the rule of law, and “tort practice expertise”

    ……qualities that the Harvard Graduate President Obama, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, multiple members of the Congressional Black Caucus, other elected black leaders at the State, County, and City jurisdictions of government, fail to uphold as mandated by law and sworn under oath as elected officials or public servants.

    With all the criminal acts perpetrated against law abiding U.S. born blacks by the criminal actions of police officers, other public servants, it just makes no sense that the black community continues to remain in poverty, begging for worthless demeaning welfare benefits, begging for handouts, etc., etc.

    What we need to be talking about is all the guns being used on our kids in the hood. No one talks about this. More young Blacks are killed in a month than those that are killed in these mass shooting. Why are so many guns in our neighborhood? They are there to protect and maintain control over the neighborhoods for sell of their drugs. Drugs is another major problem in our neighborhoods, but no one talks about this. We need to wake up.

    Cornel and Tavis should run for office instead of running their mouths. What about ICE CUBE, DR DRE AND ICE CUBE founders of Gangster rapp that has made our communities a WAR ZONE. Now we want the government to save us from ourselves. Please. Obama is not the magic negro with all of the answers. If Cornel and Tavis have the answers, let them bring it forth.
