Here be dragons.

no hay puentes,
se hace puentes al andar.
– Gloria Anzaldúa





In a recent interview with Diverse magazine, Professor Cornel West attacked his former Princeton colleague and newly minted MSNBC host Professor Melissa Harris-Perry.

West called Harris-Perry a “liar” and said that, “[s]he’s become the momentary darling of liberals, but I pray for her because she’s in over her head. She’s a fake and a fraud. I was so surprised how treacherous the sister was.”

Oh HELL naw!  Sir, I’ma need you to have all the goddam seats.

I swear West’s real issue is that Perry’s scholarship often focuses on WOC & not MOC.

Bolded for truth and realness.

i have been holding out hope for cornel west, like i black intellectuals have a special place in my heart, but damn…west just loses a lot of my respect for this…no. no. no…no…melissa is the shit…even if when i disagree with her, as i did with her support of obama, still…she is intelligent as fuck…and who the fuck is west talk about being the darling of the liberals…srsly…did i enter into an alternative universe in which west is not the go to black intellectual for white liberals nowadays?   

i need a compass, cause im lost…

all of the above.
