Cornel West Insists HE’S the Nigga

Unsurprisingly, only a guy that could write a book as blank as Race Matters could hate on a nigga that writes books that are actually interesting.

So even though I have my own issues with Ta-Nehisi Coates’ overall worldview, I would still never bash him cause he’s talented as fuck and I really do enjoy reading him.

And I damn sure wouldn’t do that shit in public.

Not even from the pulpit of my own site.

You’d have to know me and I’d have to be cool with you and then I might point out what I think are possibly a couple of shortcomings, but otherwise, mums the word on a nigga out here doing his thing – especially a writer – married to a Black (American) woman and not an overall embarrassment.

But Cornel West?

Nah, he’ll attack anybody getting more press than he does.

He’d expected Obama to kneel and kiss the ring and, once rebuffed, would attack the nigger-Prez anywhere they’d print his venom.

This is that old-school, “They’s only ones of us allowed to speak fo alls of us to whitey” Colored mentality.

This ain’t about leadership.

Note how almost nobody suggest where Black people can or should go.

This is all about being the “face of the franchise”, the biggest midget, the guardian to the gate of Negritude, the only one you need to consult for the opinion of the dusky vox populi.

Right.

As we know, niggers have very infrequently ever had leaders.

Garvey was a leader and he said “Let’s get the fuck outta here.”

Booker T. was a leader and he said, “Integrate? My ass, nigga! Let’s toss up our shit that’ll eventually be better than that ol cracker bullshit!”

The rest of the time, we got spokesmen.

Some of them were dope like Dr. King.

Other times, well, whatever.

Even our writers have been unduly burdened with telling all of our stories.

Baldwin’s brilliant gay ass was the universal literate Negro and, quite honestly, did a fair job after taking over for Wright’s ridiculous ass who would have had you believe that we all wanted to marry and alternately kill white people.

Now we got Mr. Coates who, sadly, can’t even have his own opinion.

In his Guardian piece, the esteemed Mr. West – and no, amazingly, not Kanye – would have you imagine that there are (only) two distinct fields of Negroid thought in which Mr. Coates represents some type of neoliberal pseudo-intellectualism, while he, West, “field nigger” one might imagine, represents that real; you know, ready to burn, if he’s to be believed, Wall Street first and foremost, and then dismantle the already dead “white supremacy” brick by imaginary brick if necessary, with his bare hands, getting it done and finding a way (you betcha!) to get paid in the meantime.

So let’s wait for that.

In the meantime, draw your own conclusions, Nigger America.

There’s a “Black” America around here somewhere, I keep hearing about it.

And I’ma look for it too.

It’ll probably be the crowd that Cornel West is standing in front of as he preaches his doctrine.

I’ll know for sure it’s them if they’ve all got their backs turned.
