Cornel West: Obama Is A ‘Global George Zimmerman’

Dr. Cornel West, author, activist and Professor at Union Theological Seminary, is not shy about expressing his disapproval of President Barack Obama.

He has questioned the president’s racial authenticity and called him a “Republican in blackface,” but even West’s supporters may find his latest criticism beyond pale.

During an interview on Democracy Now!, West ridiculed Obama’s recent remarks on racial profiling and the George Zimmerman trial:

“We know anybody who tries to rationalize the killing of innocent people is a criminal. George Zimmerman is a criminal. But, President Obama is a global George Zimmerman because he tries to rationalize the killing of innocent children, 221 so far, in the name of self-defense… Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen. So when he comes to talk about the killing of an innocent person, you say, well wait a minute, what kind of moral authority are you bringing?”
