Decline and decay

Cornel West to Barack Obama (courtesy of the BBC):

If you cannot keep alive the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, and Miles Horton and Dorothy Day [and] Cesar Chavez, in the states, connected to the empowerment of those Frantz Fanon called the “wretched of the earth,” you will end up just another colorful caretaker of an empire in decline and a culture in decay.

Amen.
