Bad Faith

May 27th 2021

Listen to the full episode for free: We speak to the one-and-only Dr. Cornel West about the professional consequences of his advocacy for Palestine, his tenure battle with Harvard, and what he makes of the gap between the media response to his case versus Nikole Hannah-Jones's tenure battle. How does the silence or complicity of the Black media elite obstruct progress by manufacturing consent for neoliberalism? And how does a flat, racially essentialist understanding who the "good guy" is make progressive advocacy more difficult, from BLM to Gaza?
