Cornel West on Obama

I’m obviously behind on this as it is from last week. But 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 and global destruction.
