175. West's own fault. Indeed.
It would seem that the understanding of register and reference points are as lost on as many participants of this thread as the discussion of the moniker, "tar baby." Professor West blowing on that 1970's "Oreo" dog whistle is quite an unfortunate fallback on a provincial mindset. I wanted to slap him into next week. Put it back into your pants, Cornel.

Had he left all that bullshit out his comments, they would be seen as an accurate, challenging, although scathing critique. His bad. And he DESERVES the the scorn being heaped on his hairy head. The black community is NOT a monolith and ASSuming the right to declare who's black enough is old and tired. Shame on him.
