Profiles in Black Genius: Cornell West

Dr. Cornell West will hold a speaking engagement on the famed U Street in Washington D.C., at the restaurant Busboys & Poets.  Dr. West is scheduled to give a talk about his new book Hope on a Tightrope, tomorrow (Friday, November 21) at 6:30.

You should know by now to bring a dictionary, a thesaurus, and at least one or two books for Cornell to sign.  The bottom line is that this brother is deep, and that half the time you can’t even understand him.

Click the link above and witness the intellectual fitness.  Dr. West says there is no such thing as "post-racial" and that you racists need to stop saying that bullshit.  It’s not fooling anyone.  Dr. West says that just because he’s a champion of Barack Obama, it doesn’t mean that he won’t hold him to a high standard for recycling Clinton era appointees.  Seriously, this is the best interview I’ve seen in a while.
