SIO104: Cornel West Owes Ta-Nehisi Coates an Apology

Ok so maybe the left is eating its own… After brushing by a couple points on the tax bill, I talk about a few instances of people on the left being unfairly demonized and harassed by other people on the left. It sucks. ContraPoints on YouTube seemed to me to be very affected by harassment over her decision to attend an event with Blaire White and Theryn Meyer. I talk briefly about that but then I move onto a bigger example that I discuss in depth, and that is Cornel West’s hit-piece on Ta-Nehisi Coates. It’s very straw-manny and disturbing to me. Here are some links:
