Dr. Cornel West on Racism and Hurricane Katrina

Dr. West drops some serious thoughts on us. Here is only part. Read the whole thing.

In the end George Bush has to take responsibility. When [the rapper] Kanye West said the President does not care about black people, he was right, although the effects of his policies are different from what goes on in his soul. You have to distinguish between a racist intent and the racist consequences of his policies. Bush is still a ‘frat boy’, making jokes and trying to please everyone while the Neanderthals behind him push him more to the right.

Thank you for linking to this Sally.

  1. I like to hear more from Cornel West in mainstream media, tired of only white males in the dialogue and analysis of Race and Class and Katrina.
