Dr. Boyce: Go, Cornel Go – America Needs Your Courage

Post By RelatedRelated Post

 

 

In a recent article in Diverse Issues in Higher Education, Professor Cornel West “went HAM” on Tulane University Professor Melissa Harris-Perry.

In what might be his strongest public comments yet, West referred to Harris-Perry as a “fake” and a “fraud” for allowing herself to be used by the liberal establishment to shoot down his critiques over our nation’s decision to overlook racial inequality and poverty.I was quoted in the article, but only as a supporter of Dr. West.  Anyone who evaluates Cornel West’s track record will see that he has consistently advocated for Black, Brown and poor people long before “hope” and “change” slogans were thrust on to our TV screens.  In fact, Dr. West and Pastor Jeremiah Wright serve as our strongest modern-day embodiments of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Similar to King, both of these men must endure the public volatility that comes with not running in lockstep with any flashy political trend.When I heard what Cornel said about Melissa, my neck snapped like Nene Leakes bumping into a bill collector at a night club.  I was both impressed and shocked that West had been so strong in his position on Harris-Perry, and I was glad to see that even millionaires aren’t afraid to tell the truth.

  1. Did you read about Sean Hannity comments on SEAL operation? Who made the final decision to take down Bin Laden? President Obama. So Sean Hannity is stupid to suggest otherwise. Sean Hannity show will die after November 6. This is after President Obama is re-elected¬. In 2008 Sean almost had heart attack seeing an African-Am¬erican become president of US and the World. All FoxNews morons had to take 2 weeks retreat to re-examine what went wrong. Now Sean is trying to paint President Obama decision and SEAL operation as fake. What a stupid man! You remember VP Biden credits President Obama as one who made the final decision. Biden had problem with the operation. I used to watch Sean TV show – now I don’t. It has become monotonous and incoherent and you can predict what Sean will argue or say. Then what is the use if I can predict what Sean will puke during his show. America we are on right truck – economical¬ly, socially, and politicall¬y. Let’s build one nation under GOD. America please join me to vote for President Obama in November.

  2. When asked why he didn’t laugh, Black History Week founder Carter Godwin Woodson remarked: “Black History is no laughing matter!” History is not for the faint of heart. Cornell West is a Historian of the highest order! He does not have to wedge his bets.
