"Right, and it’s obvious that these confrontations have led many in the mainstream American press to denounce you, but even then your popularity among poor and working people in America and across the world continues to grow. How do you account for that? "...

Amen. Exactly. Why? Because this man is his own man. He doesnt need to fit into a box. He is his own person. And that is what makes people of respect.

I wish Cornel West could be seen more in mainstream media so his engaging and intelligent message could spread even further. He's a courageous man and a fabulous speaker.

No one who tells the truth about the Almighty in the WH gets any good publicity. And a black dude to boot? He must be an Uncle Tom....just ask VQ or DKa.

Wow Ronnie. You're either a really lousy troll or a really confused racist.

Fuck you asshole - there is only one race - the human race - and it is colorful. So stick your head back up your ass and spew all you want - you will be where you belong.
