Cornel West on Obama 1


Cornel West touches on so many important points that display the hypocrisy of the system. A system that attempts to take the people’s heroes, shine them up, and make their legacy serve those in power.

  • Martin Luther King Junior’s stance against Jim Crow vs the Jim Crow of today, the Prison Industrial Complex.
  • MLK Jr’s stance against carpet bombing in the Vietnam War vs Obama’s drone wars.
  • MLK Jr’s stance on poverty vs. global crony capitalism.

Martin Luther King Junior was a radical and a genuine threat to the system. Obama is just another figure head on top of a pile of dead innocents.
