Cornel West: Obama “Another Black Mascot of Wall Street Oligarchs”
Princeton University professor and renowned intellectual Cornel West has finally come to his senses regarding President Barack Obama. West, a longtime Obama supporter, has caused quite a stir, especially among black Americans, by appearing on national television and declaring that our nation’s first (half) black President has sold out, becoming a “puppet” controlled by the country’s ruling elite.
West’s comments came on an MSNBC forum on “The Black Agenda.” West was part of a panel that included the Reverend Al Sharpton. When West opined that Obama is “another black mascot” of “Wall Street oligarchs,” Sharpton took offense and the panel conversation grew heated. Here’s the whole segment:
