Oh my. Here we go again. In wrestling parlance, it looks as if we have a “cage match,” between the team of “Terrible Tavis Smiley” and his partner “The Professor” Cornel West against President Barack Obama and his policies.
In this latest war of words, Professor West made his comments on Saturday, December 22, 2012, on the “Smiley and West” radio show. These two guys have no quit in them. I guess you can say they have the courage of their convictions when it comes to putting issues they believe of interest on the public table for discussion.
Following the shooting death of 26 children and adults in Newtown, Connecticut, Saturday, West referred to President Obama and other (unnamed) politicians as “cowards” who only cares about “vanilla” children. Smiley and West have been frequent critics of President Obama and they don’t seem to care what people say or think about them.
West, an open and frequent critic of Obama, referring to the soaring homicide rate in Chicago, said the president did not care when “black folk” get shot in his own state.
