Cornel West’s repeated attacks on President Barack Obama are creating a divide within the Black community.

Several African American activists who support Obama fear that his attacks will lead to apathy in the Black community and low voter turnout. West is currently on a “Poverty Tour” with fellow Obama critic, radio and TV personality, Tavis Smiley.

The Daily Beast reports:

“The negative discussion Dr. West is having can only put more apathy in the hearts of African-Americans and could ultimately cause them to lose more faith in the entire political process,” says the Rev. Otis Moss III, pastor of Obama’s former church in Chicago. “Where will that leave us?”

West insists he does not intend to suppress support for Obama’s reelection. “If African-Americans choose to stay home this time and not go to the booth, it would be most regrettable -given the options,” he says. “But that can’t stop my message.”
