Cornel West: Justice and Accountability Necessary to End Tension over Killings by Police

Democracy Now! on Jul 18, 2016 – We discuss the killing of three police officers in Baton Rouge and the recent nationwide protests against police brutality with Cornel West. Cornel West is a professor at Union Theological Seminary. “When I hear the authorities call for peace,” West says, “I say, yes, but it’s not the absence of tension. It’s got to be the presence of that justice and accountability.”

      • In the Jorge Ramos interview, Nader says Sanders has

        “set her up for political betrayal…that will allow him to enlarge his civic mobilization movement…after the election & after she takes office; so I think it’s a very astute endorsement…”

        Sanders knowing full well, holding her feet to the fire etc as not being enough ~ so R N then continues

        “she should commit to send specific legislation within a hundred days to the Congress after she is inaugurated in order to make sure she meant what she said, in terms of the Democratic platform…”

        which is precisely what Obama did not do and so on; so I think it is wise to ponder this assessment.

        Of course a hundred days in US ‘politics’ is an eternity, anything may happen. So I’d say we can only predict the unpredictable. As Bernard Lewis has been fond of saying, it is hard enough for any historian even to predict the past.

        My point would be, nothing is inevitable; we create our futures by who we are, morally, spiritually and existentially; which is what the entrepreneurial mystic Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev insists is far more important than trying (reactively) to rearrange perceived outcomes of so-called real situations.

        Cornel operates from a very similar premise.

    • Excerpt, from Cornel West:

      “A neoliberal disaster is one who generates a mass incarceration regime, who deregulates banks and markets, who promotes chaos of regime change in Libya, supports military coups in Honduras, undermines some of the magnificent efforts in Haiti of working people, and so forth. That’s the record of Hillary Clinton. So there was no way—when my dear brother, who I love very deeply, Bernie Sanders said she will make an outstanding president, I said, “Oh, I disagree with my brother. I think she’ll—I don’t think she’ll make an outstanding president at all.” She’s a militarist. She’s a hawk. She could take us into war with Russia. She could take us into war with Iran.”
