Obama is the President of the United States. As the country's highest elected official, he is of necessity an INTEGRAL part of any conversation about the mass incarceration of blacks. IMHO, ommitting discussion of the President and his programs, practices and "mega-plex incarceration unit" in Illinois would be unconsciousable.
I wrote of disagreeing with Cornell West for the same reason others have written posts in agreement with him, i.e., for expressing his opinion on mass incarceration in several posted videos on the topic.
