    This challenged my first impression of Cornel West. Also, I apreciate the message. Thank you.

      What was your initial impression of West?

      • echar

        He made a comment about how all children need something, but especially the chocolate children. It put me off his eligability to be a great source of information. Ultimately he is human, like you or I. This example is redeeming, yet I will not go out of my way to absorb his message. It may not be the best thing to play the numbers game, yet I find there are so out there with a message, and many can be worthless to my means.

          Richard Belzer said the most important thing in the Bill Maher segments and he wasn’t even credited in the video title. Cornel West is a poetic man, but his career thrives on the very thing Carlin was critiquing in his bit: harping on our differences helps those that aspire to own us.

            As an afterthought, I felt that carlin was an eqalization to this video. So I agree.

            I’m glad you said that; I had the same thought. Belzer’s book “Dead Wrong” is worth a read, although it’s in need of an editor.

          Ha, I would have had the same reaction. I’ve been exposed to West mostly on Democracy Now, on which he is consistently reasonable. I’m guessing he has a little bit of an oratory political streak in him and likes to pander to his audiences.

Okay, maybe not crashing the economy, but the My Little Pony-loving subculture does catch a little flack in this article from American Public Radio. Disinfonaut "Anarchy Pony", why must you...
