Dr. Cornel West’s reaction to President Obama swearing in on MLK’s Bible

Martin Luther King Jr. was in line with the prophetic tradition of Amos and Isaiah. Using King’s Bible, a relic of hope and justice, during the Inauguration of President Obama sanitizes King’s message. Dr. King would be protesting the US Empire for our continuing militarization, our institutionalizing of racism (prison-industrial complex), and our capitalist consumption. Thank you Brother West for speaking out for justice, and hope in the midst of the political theatre.
