77. "fear of the free Black man" was just a "bit over the top" fo r you.
You were not insulted in anyway when West defines Obama's problem to be him being raised by White people?! Think there's a divide and this divide is to dislike anything that criticizes people who criticize Obama, even when it's obvious this person is in the wrong.

I'm not sure if you're White or Black...but it was clear that Cornel West blamed his White background and in effect his "deracination" to why Obama may not have done as he "expected". Then he goes on to talk bout Stiglitz and Krugman who were not even in for running since I know for Krugman he didn't want ANYTHING to do with the administration or having political office. But you'd sooner side with West. As for Harris' statements, well she has a right to after West, when West went after Obama mainly because of the man he is and not about the policies (and even his picks is based on who he is as a man) and yet you felt it was right to unrec a thread over that. I thought you were about policy. Whatever..
