Dr. Cornel West: “President Obama Has Very Little Moral Authority,” “Obama Is A Global Criminal”

 

 

“President Obama Has Very Little Moral Authority”

On Obama’s remarks comparing himself to Trayvon Martin, West says: “Will that identification hide and conceal the fact there’s a criminal justice system in place that has nearly destroyed two generations of precious, poor black and brown brothers? [Obama] hasn’t said a word until now — five years in office and can’t say a word about a ‘new Jim Crow.’ … Obama and [Attorney General Eric] Holder — will they come through at the federal level for Trayvon Martin? We hope so — [but] don’t hold your breath. There’s going to be many people who say, ’We see this President is not serious about the criminalizing of poor people.’”
