    I am not a "fan" of Dr. West.  Actually I have heard him speak only occasionally on TV for the occasion of something I don't remember. A lot of black leaders sitting on a podium and talk something that is dear to their heart, apparently. Most often he was the only one saying something of substance, imo. He has his own style of speaking, if you don't like the style, so be it, can you say something to the substance he is saying? What do you mean by you are on record as having nothing but d for West. What do you mean by "d"?

    If he were an attention seeker, he would have made big splashes about wanting to be arrested, or not? He didn't.

    I realized once here on dailykos that Dr. West is apparently not very much respected or loved in this community, at least by some. May be because he said something critical about Obama?

    What I am a bit amazed about is the fact that you put me automatically in the category of fans that show him some of the "funky love". What's that supposed to mean?

    I am a foreigner, have even difficulties sometimes to understand what he says (as I have with Jesse Jackson talking), I am far from anything funky ... but just to put him down as someone did here once as "racially-based" agitator (I don't remember anymore the words used for him other than the accusation that he is racially-based something. Too lazy to search for the comment)

    That's why I put out exactly what I felt today, that he was funny, witty, loving and agitating. As he should be for an occasion like this.
