“Cornel West was stunned by Candace Owens’ stupidity.
“Harvard philosophy professor Dr. Cornel West debates Blexit Movement founder Candace Owens on ‘The Ingraham Angle.’
LAURA INGRAHAM, HOST: Now, we hear those lines all the time but here are the facts. Since President Trump took office, black unemployment has hit a historic low and currently sits at about 6.7 percent. And by the way, he’s not satisfied with that. He wants it a lot lower but still pretty great. The number of African Americans employed is up more than 4 percent. And the most stunning of all African American wages. This is my favorite are up more than 9 percent. Here now in a truly special debate, I’m so happy about this. Candace Owens, Blexit Movement Founder, a conservative commentator and Cornel West, Professor of Philosophy at Harvard University and Professor Emeritus at Princeton. Dr. West, I also want to tell you, I really appreciate you coming on the show, you’re an old style liberal, I don’t mean old and old, but you like debate and conversation and I think that’s just awesome. So, thank you so much for joining us tonight.
