The reign of Obama did not produce the nightmare of Donald Trump – but it did contribute to it. And those Obama cheerleaders who refused to make him accountable bear some responsibility.

He delivered so many knockout punches without even getting started on foreign policy..

Unfortunately, Cornel West and Ben Carson, though on the political extreme of each other, have become a mirror image of each other, diminished personalities in the black community.

Yes, Mr. West has delivered "so many knockout punches", I am afraid, he has found himself on the ground, "knocked out". He did it to himself.

Cornel West is pissed because he raised a lot of money for and worked on Obama’s first presidential election and did not get invited to white house functions---------I went to his buddy and Princeton colleague Eddie Glaude book signing where they were both ragging on Obama and Hillary ----those are two guys who have let the perfect be the enemy of the good------its people like those who unwittingly facilitated the election of Trump ----- --Eddie Glaude has become a regular on Morning Joe

Many truths in what West wrote. However, there is no democracy anywhere as all politicians are bought by the wealthy and the elites..Simple really.

Why is West irrelevant. Is his opinion based on facts, lies and half truths.

I do have great love and respect for the Obamas but I am disappointed.

Does Cornell want to see the blood of black people on the street, when history shows that this always fail?

Or he wants us to win equal rights by keeping our dignity and pride while pursuing the shared objective?

It is typical on our side to criticize one of our own in such a destructive way. There can be constructive criticism that does not stoke disunity.

How many respected and dignified conservatives are there today being destructive to their party? None. Everyone is just being constructive and not giving an inch.

Many "respected and dignified" Republicans openly opposed Donald Trump.
