It’s been a great week for gay activists, but Dr. Cornel West is not happy. As the postmodern professor par excellence explained to radio host Tavis Smiley last Sunday, the advances made by gays and lesbians mean that “we black folk are just being pushed to the back of the bus”:

Again this has something to do of course with what history books will say. The irony of the age of Obama in which black folks found themselves pushed to the back, [and] our gay brothers and lesbian sisters more and more pushed to the center.

Yes, blacks should certainly back the republican party who is the one gerrymandering the districts so their votes do not count because DOMA was knocked down. It is truly amazing how the conservative mindset is to remain in a position of being prejudice and expect that the other groups will side with them because they claim their prejudice is good for them.

I don't see how this would help keep them on the "Democrat Plantation." Nice try at race baiting, though.

Seriously, if he thinks the Democrats aren't doing what they should for him and his people, he's free to vote Republican. Not sure he'd be thrilled with those results either. No matter who has held the White House, the results have largely been the same for that community.

It is interesting though that it wasn't that long ago that Cons were afraid that Obama would do so much for the black community at the expense of whites, and now you don't think he's doing enough. What would Rev. Wright say? Probably nothing good, which makes you wonder how much Obama took anything he said to heart.
