From The Root: Cornel West Wants A Sit-Down With Ta-Nehisi Coates

This is not an endorsement of West as much as a look at his reaction to Coates reaction to him.

This shouldn't be about our taking sides. Allies listen.

2. Not sure he

..understands what Ta-Nehisi is saying about Malcolm and Obama. West portrays Coates' ideas in a way I don't recognize at all, after reading the Eight Years in Power text.

Hope they do get together and straighten it all out.

3. They might be talking past each other and prioritizing some values differently.
