Tuesday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” host Anderson Cooper choked up during Princeton University Professor Emeritus Dr. Cornel West’s description of George Floyd’s funeral and where he viewed its place in the history of civil rights.
West said, “We refuse to get in the gutter, and we’ll go down swinging like Ella Fitzgerald, Muhammad Ali, in the name of justice. We do it for Brother Wyatt. We do it for my daughter. We do it for the Asians. We are doing for the whole world. Because that is the only hope of the world and that kind of love is always tragedy, comic and crucified. You got to be ready to be crucified with that kind of love. And you need to keep dishing it, generation after generation after generation.”
