Fault Lines – An Interview With Dr. Cornel West

Interesting interview with Cornel West. West outlines his views on a number of issues, including he black community’s relationship with President Obama.  Then he goes off into the Palestine-Israel conflict is nothing more than pandering to Al Jazeera for approval. One would have thought the guy was bright enough to stick to American contextual issues instead of wandering into simple minded Kumbaya with a bunch of folks who really don’t give a damn about much except their hate for each other.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Another in a series of extremely good interviews and in depth reporting by Al Jazeera’s “Fault Line” program. These guys are doing the heavy lifting and intellectual analysis almost totally missing in the American MSM anymore.
