- Dr Cornell West is a weird dude. There’s no doubting that. He often makes very provocative and usually head scratching statements. And that’s exactly what he did again this week.
TMZ caught up with the professor and when asked about Trump he said that Trump is ushering in “neo-fascist era” and that Trump was “in over his head. But the most ridiculous statement was that Trump’s policies were “more dangerous than Jim Crow” because in his mind Trump’s policies affect all minorities as opposed to only blacks.
What West conveniently leaves out is that Trump’s policies only negatively impact non-Americans. Additionally, blacks and black communities are at the forefront of Trump’s agenda. But why would he include that in his analysis? It doesn’t help his liberal-progressive narrative.
