Mos Def & Cornell West On Real Time

Mos Def and Cornell West both sat on a panel to discuss politics on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher last month. For part of the show Mos struggled to effectively articulate his points on some political issues, but did a great job (in the second clip) in addressing how our justice system is helping in conditioning minority youth in poor neighborhoods to become criminals.

Check it out.

I truly value Mos Def's voice - alleged inconsistencies and all. However, I do not value his speech impediment or congestation.

I would give my left arm just to go in Bro. West's closet to see how many black suits, black shirts, black ties and black sweatbands/chokers that man has.

it was pretty good, though I didn't agree with a lot of what they said.

However, "truth laying prostate" was just a great line, lol.
