Cornel West: “The state of Black America in the age of Obama has been one of desperation, confusion and capitulation” http://www.salon.com/2014/10/05/cornel_west_the_state_of_black_america_in_the_age_of_obama_has_been_one_of_desperation_confusion_and_capitulation/
Salon has been pretty terrible lately. It has slowly been turning into a Huffington Post that seems designed to generate as many clicks as possible through ridiculous headlines. It might soon be time to delete this app on my phone as well. But, for the time being, there are still some really great articles there. I found this criticism of President Obama, by Cornel West, from a leftwing perspective, interesting. I think criticism of leaders is important, even if you support them over the opposition. If you understand how politics work, then you know that the people often lead the leaders towards making changes.
