  •  I think I'm veering toward agreeing with you (4+ / 0-)

    my bias is sometimes toward Professors, given. However, you will never hear me lose any love for Cornel West. My great mentor, my greatest of great mentors, was an AA scholar who had met him in passing through sort of mutual work on scholarship and never had a nice word to say about him. I remember hearing bits and pieces of what he, another proud, strong AA man thought of Dr. West.

    I don't know many AA folks who like him, to be frank.

    And he is in the 1%.

    But so is someone like Neil Gaiman or Salman Rushdie, and I fully appreciate their support. So it's not that. No. I think it's just what you say here: he's self-serving and this won't be the best PR other than for those who already probably support OWS?


    I'm thinking this through. Slowly. I'm also trying to grade :/
