Cornel West: America Is a ‘Failed Social Experiment’

June 1, 2020

Friday on CNN, racial agitator and professor Cornel West offered his shallow insight into the death of George Floyd in police custody, declaring the United States to be a “failed social experiment.”

“With George, it is so clear it was a lynching at the highest level,” he claimed. At the highest level? What is he talking about? The cop at the center of the controversy was a rogue who has since been charged with murder. “Nobody can deny it, and I thank God we have people in the streets. Can you imagine this kind of lynching taking place and people are indifferent, don’t care — people don’t care?” Who is he referring to? The whole country was repulsed by Floyd’s death. For a purported intellectual, West does a lot of blathering.

West went on to rant that “the system cannot reform itself,” that “we have a neofascist gangster in the White House who doesn’t care” about black lives, and that “white supremacy is going to be around for a long, long, long time… Even in the moment where we have a failed social experiment, we must fight.”

America is not a failed social experiment. The failed social experiment is the progressivism West supports.
