The professor Obama loves, Derrick Bell, “I live to harass white folks.” Barack Obama, “White folks greed runs a world in need.” The Vetting: Obama’s Supreme Court and Critical Race Theory Folks, you really need to be reading this stuff so you know who this President is. Derrick Bell and Eric Holder’s ‘Nation of Cowards’
To Bell, racial equality—whether in the law or the academy—was a myth. The civil rights movement had been largely futile, because racism was deeply ingrained in American institutions. The answer—though not the solution—was continued resistance. Bell therefore celebrated those, like Louis Farrakhan, who were “willing and able to ‘tell it like it is’ regarding who is responsible for racism in this country.”
More on Critical Race Theory.
“So here’s what we’re left with, in simple terms. Racism cannot be ended within the current system; the current system is actually both a byproduct of and a continuing excuse for racism. Minority opinions on the system are more relevant than white opinions, since whites have long enjoyed control of the system, and have an interest in maintaining it.”
In November 1985, the Harvard Law Review published an article by Derrick Bell that was a “classic” in the development of Critical Race Theory. The article was edited by then-student Elena Kagan, and was cited by Prof. Charles Ogletree in support of her nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Barack Obama in 2010. The article makes clear that Critical Race Theory sees the U.S. Constitution as a form of “original sin”–a view later embraced by Obama as a state legislator, and reflected in his actions and appointments. The following is an excerpt from the non-fiction portion of the article; much of what follows is a fictional story that Bell intended as a parable of racial “fantasy.”
Psycho-racist nut Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam newspaper threatens Glenn Beck. For all the worry about Warren Buffett’s secretary and her taxes you would think his companies would have their taxes all buttoned up. Guess not. Another outstanding economics piece from John Mauldin: There will be contagion. You should be reading everything this guy writes.
For a guy who is supposedly such a leader and model American, Barack Obama sure has an awful lot of anti-Semitic friends.
The alarmism about voter ID laws being racist is ridiculous. I’m of the opinion that the only reason the Democrats oppose them so vigorously is because they know they are losing the ability to cheat and the end is near. Here is proof from Georgia that they have no negative affect on voter turnout.
Election data in Georgia demonstrate that concern about a negative effect on the Democratic or minority vote is baseless. Turnout there increased more dramatically in 2008 — the first presidential election held after the state’s photo-ID law went into effect — than it did in states without photo ID. Georgia had a record turnout in 2008, the largest in its history — nearly 4 million voters.
