""Week after week after week" (as you put it) I hear you criticize President Obama for not addressing racial issues. Why, why, why do you continue to look to President Obama? I don't understand it. If you want a racial issues leader,…"
"Hearing people "analyze" the president's speeches perplexes and amazes me. Obama's speeches are simply talk, and as some witty person once said, "talk is cheap". The only thing that really matters is what…"
"Corrections to my comment: The name of the caller who took Dr. West "to task" was Diane Kid (spelling?), not Malveux. Also, according to Wikipedia, "bell hooks" is the pen name of Gloria Jean Watkins, so I guess I…"
"Dear Dr. West,
I am disappointed in your response to Ms. Malveaux. First, instead of guessing at what Dr. Hooks meant by her comment, "Did you ever think we'd live to see a white man running on a white supremacist ticket?", I…"
"Romney is running on a white supremacist ticket? I thought he was running on a plutocracy ticket. I don't think Romney cares about the color of person's skin so much as he cares about the size of a person's portfolio."

"This has nothing to do with the topic "A listener from Berkeley, CA takes Smiley & West to task for being too respectful of President Obama".
The YouTube video description is, "DSU Non-violent protest ending with police…"
"This isn't directly related to the question at hand, but it is sort of since President Obama's speeches affect how people view him.
