Cornel West: Obama Is a 'Disgusting' Black President

Tuesday on BBC’s “Newsnight,” political activist Cornel West hammered President Barack Obama on his reaction to the Michael Brown case calling it “disgusting.”

West pointed out the president put out a statement on the death of actor Robin Williams days before he addressed the Brown death. 

West railed against the president saying, “His words reek of political calculation rather than moral conviction.”

Slamming Obama’s reaction as not only “weak and timid,” but he added, “I just think it’s disgusting. It’s disgusting to have a black president unable to keep track about what’s going on among the young black youth or any poor youth.” 

Hammering the “low quality black leadership in America.” West then went after Al Shrpton as “an apologist for the Obama administration” who sweeps into these crisis for photo-ops not justice.
