A voice in the wilderness, always insightful and, for the spirit- seeking, inciteful!

Truly outstanding lecture. Worthy of sharing with wider audiences outside of the US, such is the power (on intellectual/moral/emotional/spiritual levels) and delivery of Dr Cornel's message; an exhortation to strive to be aware of our moral agency in this world and to act so that we might realize the nature of our higher-selves as individuals and as a community.

Thank you Dr. Cornel West! The clarity of your voice is soul-piercing and as has been stated, soul stirring. Thank you!

Absolutely fantastic. Send this out to all the kids. Beware angry adults who prefer lazy thinking.

I love Dr.West and have been immensely shaped by him; I have all of his books. But every time I come to hear him speak, I can pretty much finish his sentences because he gives the same speech. His intellect is so vast. Although he doesn’t use any notes, if he did he would be able to present novel material and not go off on tangents.

Dr West, I could listen to you speak for hours. Thank you for spreading nuance, and love through your word and action, God bless you. P.S. please come to Seattle :)

To those suffering through the introduction, the speech starts at 8 minutes.

imagine how great america would have been had all black and minority peoples were given a decent education and not thrown into prisons for minor offences or subjugated as they are now! im so glad this man is alive during these dark times. i hope more people are given opportunities to rise like him then our world would be a much more decent place than it is now.

"given a decent education"? Who do you beg for that free education. What else should you be given? If you depend on somebody else to "give you a decent education", you will be educated to what ever they want to teach you. That is what we have been doing for a long time. Not working out so well huh? If you learn because you want to thrive in a free market, than you will have to teach yourself. It is your fault if you stop learning things on your own, and it is a shame also. Why? Because the more advanced a free society is, the more the citizenry has to be able to think. You are not a victim, (until you pay taxes), you are lazy.

If you're not raging against The Drug War, you're wasting your breath. That is the only thing keeping black people disenfranchised in America- a country in which Nigerians are the most educated group, in which Asians are too busy getting rich to complain about 'white privilege'.

Sophie Noor I'm Black, I don't break the law, I don't have those problems. If white people are that bad in 2018 we can live in Africa.

Sophie Noor imagine if the so called minority was told that they are the real majority! Ruled and manipulated by the real minority’s! If the aborigines had pride in America land left by our ancestors! If we researched our own history! Aborigine Copper Pride💪🏾Brown Pride... Your so right!

Say what he means, means what he says. Always a pleasure to keep my attention on Dr. West.
William Alston (7 месяцев назад)
I would imagine that someone might not have the interest or patience for the subject, and so no matter the words, meaning would fly right out their ears.
William Alston (7 месяцев назад)
No, not at all. Didn't have a thought like that once. We come across this vocab with a basic public education.

I am studying English, and I watched about 40 mins of his speech, I want to ask a native about his language. Is it difficult for you guys to understand it because he used a lot of complicated and old used words in his speech.
