• Even Cornel West Is Sick Of Seeing Al Sharpton On TV

    You might think Dr. Cornel West and the Reverend Al Sharpton are best buds…but as we see here, there isn’t room for more than one race-baiter in Dr. West’s America.

    During a stop in Miami to promote his newest book, Black Prophetic Fire, the Princeton professor told an audience, “I’m passing from the scene. I know it, I don’t need to be center stage. Try to tell that to brother Al Sharpton, you know? You don’t need to be center stage, brother. There’s something called grassroots leadership, indigenous leadership — it needs a different context.”

    And the advice for Al didn’t end there.

    Get out of the way of the camera and let the young folks speak,” suggested West. “Get out of the way of the camera — let them tell their truths.”

    Mere hours later, Sharpton appeared in Harlem to deliver remarks about the Ferguson grand jury decision on Officer Darren Wilson…and you guessed it; cameras were there.
