Cornel West pt. 4, or Larry Summers is even nastier than I thought:
The plot thickens. According to today's Boston Globe, not only did Summers suggest West's writings were too popular to be scholarly, he actually told West that he intended to check in with him every two to three months to make sure his work was up to Harvard standards. That is how you treat a little boy who has been naughty—and most definitely not how you treat one of only 17 faculty members with the distinguished title of Harvard University Professor.... I'm only surprised West didn't resign on the spot.
So I will leave you with this slogan from an anonymous sticker on telephone poles all around Harvard campus: "Get Uppity on Massa Summers Plantation."
