CORNEL WEST: “OBAMA IS A GLOBAL GEORGE ZIMMERMAN”

FROM CORNEL WEST VIA DEMOCRACY NOW: — On [President] Obama’s remarks comparing himself to Trayvon Martin, West says: “Will that identification hide and conceal the fact there’s a criminal justice system in place that has nearly destroyed two generations of precious, poor black and brown brothers? [Obama] hasn’t said a word until now — five years in office and can’t say a word about a ‘new Jim Crow.’ … Obama and [Attorney General Eric] Holder — will they come through at the federal level for Trayvon Martin? We hope so — [but] don’t hold your breath. There’s going to be many people who say, ‘We see this President is not serious about the criminalizing of poor people.'” (link below to text and video)
