Word of the Day: Deracinate
0 comment Friday, August 22, 2014 |

As in,
Obama, coming out of Kansas influence, white, loving grandparents, coming out of Hawaii and Indonesia, when he meets these independent black folk who have a history of slavery, Jim Crow, Jane Crow and so on, he is very apprehensive. He has a certain rootlessness, a deracination. It is understandable.Princeton professor Cornel West had a few other choice words to describe Obama, all too tangential to "deracinate" to be relevant here. Suffice it to say, Obama should have given West tickets to his inauguration. And returned his phone calls.
With professors like this, how can anyone seriously argue there's a bubble in higher education?
