CHICAGO — Rev. Al Sharpton and Cornel West will continue their heated debate on President Barack Obama and the Black community this Saturday in Chicago at the National Newspaper Publishers Association’s annual conference.

Sharpton and West previously got into a spirited argument over Barack Obama in April on the Ed Schultz Show on MSNBC.

BlackAmericaWeb reports:

West leveled blistering criticism of Obama, arguing not only that the president has failed to do enough to reduce black unemployment, but suggesting Obama was no more than a “black mascot” for the rich.

Sharpton, in response, said many black leaders have gotten behind the president to help him press a more progressive agenda and put pressure on a Congress that has largely been resistant to the measures that would best serve the black community.

“Too many of us are putting it all on the president,” Sharpton said on MSNBC in April. “If I see a [Rep. Paul] Ryan in Congress, where is the counterpoint to Ryan? That’s not President Obama’s job … He shouldn’t lead the civil rights marches against himself. Everybody’s sitting around acting like we can’t do anything; Obama’s going to do it. That’s hogwash.”
