"You don't play with Martin Luther King, Jr. and you don't play with his people, said West. "By his people, I mean people of good conscience,
fundamentally good people committed to peace and truth and justice, especially the Black tradition that produced it.
"All of the blood, sweat and tears that went into producing a Martin Luther King, Jr. generated a brother of such high decency and dignity that you
don't use his prophetic fire for a moment of presidential pageantry"
This man is brilliant.
If you have not heard of him, or not heard him speak before he is very articulate and well read. He knows his stuff.
Everything he says in this video is true.
Obama is a hypocrite. "I swear on a man who believed in peace I will only bomb 7 countries in this term that I serve..."
While Obama may not be solely responsible for the polarization of the country. he has played his part. He has played his part in keeping old wars
going and starting new wars.
His hands are not clean, and it seems like he does not intend to wash them anytime soon.
And the fact there is not more people pissed of about the hypocrisy of this situation pisses me off.
I think many people are waking up to hypocrisy in General. Not just Obama's Hypocrisy.
Then again, some people want everything wrapped up into their own nice little package, and expect their President to do EVERYTHING he promised. It
took Mr. West 4 years of lies to realize it now? Hmmmm.....

S&F and thank you for posting. It's ironic since I just had a disagreement with a friend about comparing Obama to MLK. I told her to study history.
And, that didn't go over well.
My point was that Obama does not embrace the ideals of MLK. Or Cornel West for that matter. I like the fact that he talks about the proper treatment
of ALL people regardless of race. As he pointed out, that's what MLK stood for. I think Justice for all in general. WE need good people like
Cornel to help make change.
It certainly is ironic. One would think that Cornell West would be FIRMLY behind president Obama
no matter what. They both are cut from the same democratic/socialist cloth, both are eloquent,
intellectual black men of prominence and at least one of them has college credentials...
Thanks for the video. This is exactly why Obama is so dangerous and why Democrats love him.
Obama can be just as corrupt as Presidents before him. Under Obama the "evil rich" has gotten richer, drone strikes kill innocent children and The
Fed is flooding the market with cheap dollars.
All this and more can be shielded by Obama's skin color. This is why his followers put everything in a racial context. Criticize Obama in any way
you're racist and as a black man you're an uncle Tom. I really hate this as a black man.
Obama is a corrupt, Chicago Politician yet people treat him like he walks on water because of his skin color. Obama has been a disaster for the poor
and the middle class while enriching those who he says needs to pay their "fair share."
