Here’s a video of Cornell talking Obama and free black men at MSNBCTavis Smiley and Cornell West have teamed up on radio talk show. Not sure how that’s going.  Heloise reviewed West’s memoir “Living Out Loud”

Jonathan Capehart and his take on the controversy (I think it’s trumped up for ratings)

Professor Cornel West’s criticism of President Obama as a “black mascot of Wall Street oligarchs” is reverberating throughout the African American community and the media, and is particularly disturbing to The Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart. After defending his comments last night on MSNBC, West did not sway Capehart from his belief that West is now leading a “Blacker than thou” crowd that is as embarrassing as the Birther movement. source: http://www.mediaite.com/online/wapos-jonathan-capehart-cornel-wests-criticism-of-obama-makes-him-no-better-than-a-birther/
