Ep. 291: Cornel West Explains How George Floyd is a Martyr and The Struggle Ahead Will be Long and Perilous
Dr. Cornel West is professor of the Practice of Public Philosophy at Harvard and a professor emeritus at Princeton. He is the author of several bestselling books, including Democracy Matters, Race Matters and Black Prophetic Fire.
Dr. West explains how George Floyd is a martyr and that the American people must prepare for a long and brutal reaction from the country's right-wing elites to the rising demands for social justice.
He also warns that Donald Trump and his regime constitute a neofascist disaster that could doom any hope for a true multiracial democracy in America, which is why supporting Joe Biden — despite his party's harmful allegiance to neoliberal gangster capitalism — is a necessary compromise for America’s and the world’s survival.
And Dr. West reflects on the beautiful Black Freedom Struggle, sacrifice, and if it is possible to rehabilitate America’s corrupt and failing empire.
Chauncey DeVega warns the public to avoid about the temptations being offered up by the hope peddlers who are declaring a premature victory over Donald Trump’s regime in the 2020 Election because of the polls and the latter’s horrible performance in Tulsa.
Because he is a good loyal America who only wants the best for King Trump, Chauncey also shares some information about the powerful dark art of Obeah magic and what King Trump’s visit to Tulsa and “Black Wall Street” may have unleashed upon him.
