Col West on President Obama siding with Colin Kaepernick protesting the National Anthem

(WEST) The first black president of the United States of America should have asked Colin Kaepernick what is your definition of being oppressed? I have a national security advisor who is black, I have a Homeland Security advisor who is black, I have had two attorney generals who are black. We need to move past this racial divisiveness that we have but unfortunately the President of the United States of America who has castigated our law enforcement in very negative terms starting with the you know, the police acted stupidly back in Cambridge Massachusetts all the way up to Ferguson Missouri where he jumped in and took the wrong side there . He is not going to take a stand for our law enforcement, he has not taken a stand for this great Constitutional Republic. I understand his first amendment right, freedom of expression but I think the President should have challenged Colin Kaepernick to explain what oppression means. But when you're a president that cancelled the D.C school voucher program for deserving minority students who do not have the equality of opportunity to get the type of education you are affording your own children at Sidwell Friends , then I don't think the President has the moral high ground to talk about what oppression is in the United States of America even though he was elected and re-elected from this great nation.
