West is goin' in appears. Couldn't it be that he's still, as it is alleged, mad for not being invited
to the white house by pres. Obama? :

"Yet the mainstream media and academia failed to highlight these painful truths linked to Obama. Instead, most well-paid pundits on TV and radio celebrated the Obama brand. And most black spokespeople shamelessly defended Obama’s silences and crimes in the name of racial symbolism and their own careerism. How hypocritical to see them now speak truth to white power when most went mute in the face of black power. Their moral authority is weak and their newfound militancy is shallow."

...Regardless, does he have a point?

Seems like he only has a counter point. Maybe he is providing a needed contrasting view to the good things Obama has done? Maybe he forgot Congress actively worked against him the entire 8 years he has been in office?

Or maybe:

....He's just telling the truth regarding obama?

...Realized that obama didn't truly try, especially when he had
both house and senate and decided not to use it to his advantage?

There's an ocean of speculation/conjecture to sail upon, no doubt.

Opinions by nature are subjective. When you only tell one side of things rarely are they factual. I think it will take some time for the main populace (including a lot of Black people) to realize exactly what Obama has done with Black people in mind. Those powerful whites know what he did and thats why they hate him.
