    When is Cornel West going to apologize for his remarks about President Obama?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000176285292 Crystal Thompson

    He didn’t take back what he said. Those two are the Poverty Carnival Barkers. No voter registration…nada at their events. What about Tavis and Wells Fargo in the law suit in Baltimore? Did he screw Black America?

  • MzAppletini

    I’m glad he apologized for the name calling.  He has the right to his feelings but calling them Uncle Toms crosses the line.  Steve should not take back what he said.  I only wish he would sit down with one or both of them and have an honest, mature discussion.

    Mr. Harvey needs to stay out of the political talk. The internet spoke and handed Mr. Harvey his azz on a platter. Mr. Harvey needs to stick to what he does best. 

  • magnasty

    Steve needs to stay out of politics and stick to entertainment. He is a comedian with a radio show. I applaud him for his efforts with mentoring boys, but grasping political facts is not his strong suite.

    In  the” apology” Steve Harvey said in retrospect he ( probably) really  shouldn’t  have called them UNCLE TOMS members of UTLOO (THE UNCLE TOM LOOKOUT ORGANIZATION) regardless of how many hats one chooses to wear once you accept the fact that you have crossed the line to say you( probably) should not have called them that still seems a bit ingenuous.

  • Geeman58

    Tavis smiley and cornell West,both need to backup four years ago and and look where there mouths were then. was a poor bus running then. Wake up brothers it not about the momey is it.

  • Jeff Raymond

    As for this man, I’m in full agreement wit Steve Harvey’s First comment. When the truth is told..NO apology is required or needed
