cornel west and david crowder: twins separated at birth?

the other night in grand rapids, i was chillin’ in my hotel room trying to get sleepy (time change and all), and i surfed onto the colbert report. dr. cornel west, multi-talented radical philosphy professor at princeton (also rapper and author and speaker and pot-stirrer) was the interview. really interesting, mostly because the dude is so pickin’ animated and quirky. really fun to watch.

here’s the interview on the colbert report website

anyhow, i’m watching west, and his distinctive look and mannerisms; and suddenly it strikes me: he and crowder look like each other! yeah, i know — that’s weird. but, seriously, they do. especially when you watch the interview and see his mannerisms.

so, i now posit to you, faithful (or occasional) reader of ysmarko: dr. cornel west and david crowder, twins separated at birth. or, since crowder is so much younger, maybe it’s david crowder: cornel west’s secret love child (ooh, the scandal!). see for yourself:

  1. When I used to work in Princeton I would run into Cornel West from time to time but at the time I only knew him as “That dude from the Matrix” so I never said anything to him.

    But he does look a lot like Crowder even in real life, it’s not a camera trick!

  2. dad loves colbert. he called and said, “son, my secret love child, be sure and check me out on colbert. i’m going to do our quirky mannerism thing with the pointing and gesturing and all. i’ll be the one wearing the snappy black suit you got me last year. i’ll make you proud, son.” be sure and pick up the book when it drops in november as the controversial story of our relationship is finally brought to light.

  3. No way. I also watched the interview and thought the same thing. I am pleased to see there is another odd mind out there watching fake news.

  4. Google these guys’ names together thinking that they looked alike… and BOOM your website came up!

    So glad I’m not alone on this… lol.
