*One of President Obama‘s biggest haters is going in on him again.

In his latest fusillade against the prez, Professor Cornel West, when asked about Ferguson during an appearance on CNN International, said:

“Ferguson signifies the end of the age of Obama. It’s a very sad end. We began with tremendous hope and we end with great despair.”

He went on to cite a “Jim Crow criminal justice system” that doesn’t seek justice for young black and brown people, and said adamantly there is both a race and a class war going on against that group in America right now.

When West was asked why he was hard on the president by CNNI anchor Hala Gorani, he responded by saying Obama chose a “Wall Street presidency” and a “drone presidency,” but never gave even “one speech that focuses on the Jim Crow criminal justice system that’s been targeting poor black and brown youth.”
