    If he is wary of the "people doing the funding" than can't i ask the same question of him?

    Remember the "concerned alumni of princeton"?   Judge Alito?  Remember back in 1986 what they were still working for?   They didn't want women or minorities at Princeton.  

    Do you think some of the Alumni funding West's fat paycheck are still "concerned"?

    That is my reasoning.  If West wants to criticize some of Obama's funders (as I do) than I think he needs to own up to some of his funders.

      I have no doubt the 'Concerned Alumni' wish Cornel West had never arrived at Princeton because he continues to be outspoken and unabashed.  Cornel's point is that Obama's position on issues can be (or may already have been) compromised by his contributors, and I know you've heard many, many others make the same assertion about politicians of any ethnicity.
