[video] Steve Harvey blasts Tavis Smiley & Cornel West, calls them ‘UNCLE TOMS’ for criticism of President Obama

Shots fired! This right here is a tough one to call. On the one hand, this administration has not done nearly enough to address the poverty in this country so strong criticism there is justified.  On the other hand Cornel West and Tavis Smiley seem to have an axe against the President and are not offering any solutions to the problem outside of pointing fingers. This is gonna get nasty and probably will not bring about any solutions in the long run.

“I was a huge fan of Cornel West,” said Harvey. “[But] Tavis, I seen him coming a mile away. His anger started when he had a town hall meeting, President Obama couldn’t come because of the campaign trail and he sent Mrs. Obama. He has held that grudge every since. You don’t have any real basis behind your dislike for this man…you keep masking it saying it’s not about hate. Then what is it about? Poverty existed before January 20, 2008. Where was your damn bus then?”

Harvey then clowned West and Smiley in a skit titled UTLO.org – “Uncle Tom Look Out” where an Uncle Tom is driving the bus.
