http://jeffwinbush.com/tag/tavis-smiley/This is almost funny. West snipes at his former allies, Rev. Al Sharpton and Michael Eric Dyson (and longtime adversary, Melissa Harris-Perry) for appearing on MSNBC (a network that has given West plenty of face time) while his best buddy Smiley has whored himself out to such corporations as Wal-Mart, Exxon, Wells-Fargo and McDonald’s. This does not trouble West as he is represented by Smiley for book publishing and speaking engagements (West earns up to $25,000 to speak).
Watkins take on west's response:
Funny what he said after he said the not getting tickets wasn't a reason....
It's also funny that it alright if his buddy Tavis accepts money from Wal-Mart, which stands for just the opposite of what he just said in the interview.
Do you think this has something to do with it?
That is why I don't listen to his chiding of Obama because he's in bed with wall street also.
See my point brutha Raptor?
I think it's the tickets....
