Brother West (2)

Today, The New York Times ran this pointed Op-Ed by Cornel West. I have posted on 'Brother West' here numerous times. And each time I say that while I don't agree with all of his assessments I very much admire his outspokenness. That remains true. I appreciate his willingness to speak out for the poor and for the working people in America. I also appreciate how Dr. West speaks for an un-sanitized interpretation of Martin Luther King and his radical political and economic agenda. Dr. King indeed must be viewing not just the hardships created by our current economic disaster but the paralysis of our political leaders in the face of that hardship with outrage.
