During an interview on CNN earlier today, Dr. Cornel West said that Barack Obama is the “first n***erized President.”
“Look, you can’t talk about wealth inequality, you can’t talk about decrepit education, you can’t talk about massive unemployment and underemployment, and you can’t talk about drones being dropped on people in other parts of the world without talking about white supremacy, and its ways in which it operates.
“It doesn’t have to be overt, the President is right about that. But too many black people are n***erized. I would say the first black President has become the first n***erized black President.”
“A n***erized black person is a black person who is afraid and scared and intimidated when it comes to putting a spotlight on white supremacy and fighting against white supremacy. We know he’s President of all America, but white supremacy is as American as cherry pie! We’re talking about moral issues, spiritual issues!” West said.
