Dr. Cornel West Calls President Obama The First Ni**erized Black President
|Dr. Cornel West Calls President Obama The First Ni**erized Black President|
“Racism, we are not cured of it. And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public,” President Obama starts during the WTF with Marc Maron podcast.
A comment many found offensive.
“That’s not the measure of whether racism still exists or not.
It’s not just a matter of overt discrimination. Societies don’t, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior.”
This comment comes in the wake of the senseless deaths of the nine people shot by Dylann Storm Roof on Wednesday, June 17, 2015 at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC.
The N-word is not a term that President Obama backs away from; he used it several times in his memoir, Dreams from my Father.
He isn’t the first scholar to defer to it in conversations.
Dr. Cornel West, uses it quite often. In response to the President’s controversial interview with Maron, West says boldly on CNN on Monday, “Too many black people are niggerized.
I would say the first Black President has become the first niggerized Black President.
