In The Name of “Self Defense”:Is President Obama really more like George Zimmerman?

July 25, 2013

“Speaking with radio host Tavis Smiley, Princeton University professor Cornel West attacked MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton for not demanding that the Department of Justice immediately charge George Zimmerman with a civil rights violation in connection with the shooting of Trayvon Martin. West insisted that Sharpton is “still on the Obama plantation,” or he would be more critical of the president and Attorney General Eric Holder.”*

Prof. Cornel West spoke on Tavis Smiley’s show, blasting Rev. Al Sharpton for not demanding the Department of Justice charge George Zimmerman for violating civil rights, saying Sharpton is still “on the Obama plantation.” Can Sharpton not criticize people who are black? Did Obama approach the Trayvon Martin case poorly?
