  1. How about ending the drug war? That would be a great start to progress to ending police brutality.

  2. Local police: A Historical View
    1776 -1877: . Enforced slavery
    1887 – 1964. Enforced segregation
    1964 – 2020: Enforced the war on drugs.
    2020 – ????: TBD

      Remember that before 2020 years ago, the Romans were forcing Europeans into slavery. And even today, prisoners are forced into slavery in some states. White slavery has been going on far longer than black slavery was even imagined. It wasn’t until the invention of the firearm, that blacks were enslaved.

      @Jeffrey Dahmer regardless of what he looks like he’s making more sense than any white caveman who loves to deflect and make excuses for the problem that they created

      Cornel West is a blowhard. He hasn’t lead an organization or been an executive anywhere but in his own mind. His is the corruption of vanity. Never voted Republican but I just can’t stand him. Brother this and brother that. Spouts words and has zero deeds. His eruptions are all gas. Yuck.

  11. I remember the days of the so called “silent majority”. Turns out the real silent majority is not evangelical right wing bigots, but decent folk who now understand they can’t stay silent forever and begin to find their voice against racism and injustice.

    MSNBC UPDATE: Post interview, Dr. West, phd, opined it will be ironic indeed when after the black communities are rebuilt they are subsequently burned down again after another outrage.

  13. Peace is not the absence of violence. It is the presence of JUSTICE.

    Give Dr. West a show on your channel, and get rid of Sharpton…

  18. So so love Cornel, he’s become such a grand, wise elder

    I could listen to him for days! A master alchemist who can distill the chaos into language we all can relate to. My humble thanks.
