Thank you Avi, for the interview with Dr. Cornel West.
What an eye opening thing to know that Dr. West sees the plight of all suffering mankind, as his impetus for teaching and working.
Dr. West, is one of the luminaries that came out of the 1960’s revolution, where are the luminaries of today going to come from? Let us hope that there are these type of sensitive and responsible people coming up in the world. For now more than ever, we need voices raised, heads held high, that will shine the light of true democracy and freedom on those of the ‘elite ruling class.’

“All we have is our words.”  How true!  And what a resource they can be, especially when coming from someone of learning and courage.  Thank you, Cornell West!
