Cornel West won't let you (or me) forget
Cornel West - the name may be familiar to lots of folks, probably from an academic standpoint. Which is correct? But people tend to diversify and branch out into other arenas. West has highlighted race and politics in many (if not most) of his diatribes. Good stuff, especially if you get to hear him in person; he's captivating and animated and challenges you to think differently about numerous issues.
