Cornel West On ‘The Age Of Obama’

Princeton University Professor Cornel West discusses the symbolic impact of a black president and the subsequent metamorphosis of the self-image of the United States and the psyche of black people.

“My God, the impact on children….it makes a big difference, that means the sky is the limit for them,” he says.

West points out that with the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States “the economics of greed, the culture of indifference to the poor and the politics of fear now come to an end.”

“It is a new day, it’s a great day, and here in America today it is a happy day,” he declares.

His recent book Hope On a Tightrope delves deeper into the importance of this transitional time.

Senator Barack Obama Makes History as 44th President of the United States

Barack Obama has been elected the 44th President of the United States, making him the first African-American elected to the office in our nation’s history.

Obama made his debut on the national stage only four years ago as the keynote speaker at the Democratic National Convention and went on to become a U.S. senator for Illinois. Energizing the Democratic party and a new generation of voters, Obama (a political rock star himself) has nabbed the support of celebs like Oprah and political heavyweights like Edward Kennedy and former Secretary of State Colin Powell.

While his grandmother Madelyn Dunham’s recent death and his breaking off from his pastor Jeremiah Wright have been huge personal blows for the 47-year-old politician, Obama will have the opportunity to share this momentous occasion with his wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha.

Katt Williams on Obama: ‘If You Was Ever Going to Vote for a N****, This is the N**** to Vote For!’

Comedian Katt Williams has a new video out on YouTube called “Date A President,” where he likens the presidency to dating.

“I feel like didn’t we just get out of a fucked up relationship? Maybe we don’t need a President right now,” Williams says. “Can we be single as a country for a while? And maybe date a President? See how that works out for a couple of months.”

But after all the zingers and punchlines, Williams says of Barack Obama (even though he believes no one should vote on race), “If you was ever going to vote for a n***, this is the n**** to vote for! Right here, this is the one. Yes, absolutely!”
