Westerlies (aka Anti-Trades)

Cornel West, professor at Princeton (he really should go to Cornell to keep it simple) called President Obama "a black mascot of Wall Street oligarchs and a black puppet of corporate plutocrats.”

According to the link, "the White House did not have an immediate comment." Of course not, they were too busy high-fiving.  Nothing like an attack from the radical left to make you look centrist.

West went on, questioning Obama's background:  "All he has known culturally is white…When he meets an independent black brother, it is frightening.”

So I guess independent black brothers are socialists, while free-market black brothers are...white?

The photo of West at the top of this page is interesting. Can you guess whether the editor who chose this photo admires or despises Cornel West? I'll give you three guesses.
