Black on Barack Crime: Professional Minstrel and Hipster Doofus Cornell West Calls Obama a "Black Mascot" for Wall Street And America's Death Machine, Says Obama Afraid of "Real" Black Men

Here is the thing: Cornell West is a professional buffoon, a throwback caricature of black empowerment-by-hucksterism that is (or should be) as cringey as anything on Amos & Andy.

He is, professionally, a paid idiot.

I don't even want to quote him, even talking smack about Lord God King Obama, because he's a nothing of a pseudo-academic who practices his "academics" chiefly in bad rap albums and on Bill Maher, but he's like, authentic, man.

But here he is anyway, stepping, fetching.

"When he meets an independent black brother it is frightening. And thatís true for a white brother. When you get a white brother who meets a free, independent black man they got to be mature to really embrace fully what the brother is saying to them. Itís a tension, given the history. It can be overcome. Obama, coming out of Kansas influence, white, loving grandparents, coming out of Hawaii and Indonesia, when he meets these independent black folk who have a history of slavery, Jim Crow, Jane Crow and so on, he is very apprehensive. He has a certain rootlessness, a deracination. It is understandable."

"He feels most comfortable with upper middle-class white and Jewish men who consider themselves very smart, very savvy and very effective in getting what they want," he says. "Heís got two homes. He has got his family and whatever challenges go on there, and this other home. Larry Summers blows his mind because heís so smart. Heís got Establishment connections. Heís embracing me. It is this smartness, this truncated brilliance, that titillates and stimulates brother Barack and makes him feel at home. That is very sad for me."

Actually, West said a lot more that the media is actually not reporting. They're actually editing out some of West's tougher remarks (while castigating him for being too tough), because, I guess, they just can't stand to write anything negative about their Magic Boyfriend, even if to immediately rebut it.

NewsBusters wonder why the media is, ahem, white-washing West's remarks.

Will the same networks that found it irresistible to cover the Donald Trump birther antics make any time for black radicals claiming Obama isnít really black? On page A-6 of The Washington Post on Thursday, Post reporter Krissah Williams found Princeton professor Cornel West stirred up debate among black bloggers and academics for calling the president a "black mascot of Wall Street oligarchs and a black puppet of corporate plutocrats." The Post skipped over the next line: "And now he has become head of the American killing machine and is proud of it."

In a Monday interview with radical former New York Times reporter Chris Hedges, West said: "I think my dear brother Barack Obama has a certain fear of free black men...Itís understandable. As a young brother who grows up in a white context, brilliant African father, heís always had to fear being a white man with black skin. All he has known culturally is white. He is just as human as I am, but that is his cultural formation."

His father was brilliant? At what?

And what is all this "Brother" crap? This jackass is the black Quentin Tarantino. He grew up on exploitation movies and talks like he thinks he's inside of one. Except no one ever thought to give Quentin Tarantino tenured position at Ivy League universities (and an outsized "superstar" salary, too). We just accepted Tarantino as a bit of a gork and a goofus who occasionally turns out good movies, not some kind of Prophet.

So, there you go. Obama is culturally white. And, actually, racist. And too fond of the Jews.

The High Minister of Race Minstrelry said so.

So am I permitted to criticize him now?
