Listen as Professor West decries black poverty under the Obama Administration.
As Rush Limbaugh noted:
Cornel West and his buddy, Tavis Smiley, I mean, these guys, there’s a lot about them that you can caricature. They are really serious about trying to eliminate poverty. They may not be going about it in the most efficient way, you know, promoting capitalism, but they are serious about it.
They have more money to donate. I don’t mean to insult you, but I mean that’s why. Cornel’s right. He’s totally right about this. Cornel, the black folk vote is assumed. It’s taken for granted. Why not? They get 93% of it every election. They don’t have to work for it. But the gay and lesbian brothers and sisters, they donate a lot of money, and they have to be paid back, so they get to move to the center of the bus, the front of the bus. Obama’s at the front of the bus.
