Dr. Cornel West On Popular Blacks Eliminating Truth From Their Message


Today On the Tom Joyner Morning Show: Roland Martin talks to activist and author, Dr. Cornel West on the Tom Joyner Morning Show. His new book, ‘Black Prophetic Fire’ is about connecting African Americans who’ve been willing to speak prophetically about the issues of today.

“We have to remember we come from a tradition of great people. We’ve got to tell the truths and expose the lies,” Dr. West says.

On popular Blacks telling the truth:

“When he died, Dr. King was trashed. We’re witnessing the reniggerization of people who have wealth but they are all scared to tell the truth.”
