Cornel West: President Obama Doesn’t Belong On Any Shirt With Martin Luther King And Malcolm X (Video)

Well damn. No let up from the man Dr. Cornel West. Outspoken plainly spoken critiques of the current U.S. President from him can be found all over the Internet (like here); so this slant is not new. But go ahead and dash any hope of a for-the-Black overture coming from the people’s PhD for President Barack Obama. Whew. Once again, Democracy Now gives the pundit a platform to speak it how he sees it.

Barack Obama commits war crimes — Somalia, Yemen. He commits war crimes in Pakistan, Afghanistan,” West said. “Martin Luther King Jr. tried to keep a spotlight on war crimes, to keep track of the innocents killed … There is a major clash. That is why I tell my young brothers and sisters when they walk around with their little sweater Martin, Malcolm and Barack Obama, I say, ‘Please. That’s like Coltrane and Sarah Vaughan and Pat Boone. They are a very different tradition.’ We love brother Pat, but he doesn’t belong on that shirt and Barack Obama doesn’t belong on that shirt. Let’s be clear.”
