Dr. Cornel West Calls President Obama A 'Coward'
5 months ago
Dr. West says Obama ignored Chicago gun violence.
Dr. Cornel West is giving President Obama the gift of criticism for Christmas.
On a recent episode of "The Smiley & West Show" the professor had some sharp words for the President and his response to the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Conn.
He called Obama and other politicians "cowards" for quickly responding to the tragedy involving "vanilla" children, but not saying as much, if anything at all, about the gun violence that has been killing children in Chicago for years.
“Not a peep not a mumblin’ word when the black folk getting shot,” he said. ”But now Newtown (Connecticut), vanilla side, low in behold we got a major conversation.”
This comes just months after Dr. West called the President a "Republican in blackface."
Listen for yourself:
Do you agree with Dr. West?
