Cornel West (Black Racist)

"I think my dear brother Barack Obama has a certain fear of free black men...It's understandable.  As a young brother who grows up in a white context, brilliant African father, he's always had to fear being a white man with black skin.  All he has known culturally is white...When he meets an independent black brother it is frightening...He has a certain rootlessness, a deracination.  It is understandable."

I'm not going to comment on how bad it would be for a white person to say any of this, because the outcome is too obvious:  If they had any role in public life, their career and good name would be destroyed.

It's perfectly acceptable for a black Liberal to make such a comment, though.  Notice I said a black Liberal, because if a black Conservative said it they'd be labeled an 'Uncle Tom', or worse.

What's amazing to me is the assumption any black person isn't 'black enough'; regardless of who they are...It has to be personally difficult for President Obama to deal with such garbage, but I can't imagine the emotional pain of 'Average Joe' blacks who have to put up with this kind of racism.  Especially when it comes from other blacks.

Even more insane is the fact this man collects a salary as a college professor, and is considered a 'black intellectual'...West isn't an outlier by any stretch at Princeton, nor many other so-called institutions-of-higher-learning, however.  He's also not a rarity among so-called 'black intellectuals', or even not-so-intellectual black Liberals.

No wonder so many American blacks are perpetually stranded in a downward spiral.
