African-American Professor Says Trump is Engaging in 'Retroactive Bigotry'
Fox News ^ | May 1, 2011

Posted on 05/02/2011 3:53:09 AM PDT by Zakeet

A Georgetown University professor said Donald Trump is engaging in "retroactive bigotry" when he questions President Obama’s intelligence and background and called on Republicans to either embrace Trump or distance themselves.

"This is racism by inference," Eric Dyson, a prominent African-American academic, said on CBS' “Face the Nation.” “Skepticism about black intelligence and suspicion about black humanity have gone hand in hand throughout the history of this country in feeding the perception that black people don't quite measure up."

“The reality is that Barack Obama has been called to account by a man who has nothing near the intellectual credibility or the social standing that the president has,” Dyson said during the interview.

On Friday, Trump called “our leaders” stupid. The real estate mogul has also questioned Obama’s college record.

Dyson said, “We (African-Americans) are constantly questioned as to our legitimacy - whether we belong or not - and Barack Obama is our big brother in that case. ... An assault on him is an assault on everybody."

It is racist to ask to see the Wee Wee's educational records ... but it is OK to laugh at the dumb Cracker Bush's transcripts because all us Libtards know he's an idiot!

When Hussein does something stupid, and we call it, that is not racist - that’s accurate. It says nothing about other half-black people.

Come on. You can't be serious?
You have to know the double standard by now.
Conservative blacks . . . . . anything goes, just ask Clarence Thomas and many others.

Trump aside...As long as we have Affirmative Action, quota's, lowering of standards, Black lobbying groups. The Black Caucus etc your 'legitimacy' will always be in question.

Here is another Democrat jerk who simply cannot address the substance of the questions, but has to resort to name-calling!

Why does he not just answer the unanswered questions about our President's background? And then editorialize about the motives of the questioner? No way for the Democrats! They do not even understand fundamental supply and demand economics. How does Mr. Obama satisfy the constitutional requirement to be a Natural Born Citizen?

The substance of interest is the dearth of knowledge about the man we elected to serve as our President. Generally there is a lack of common sense and too many unsupported assertions about the qualifications of Mr. Obama. Such a dearth of knowledge about a sitting president is unprecedented!

There are lack of information and access to Mr. Obama's writings, his kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, selective service registration records, social security number irregularities, files from his years as an Illinois state senator, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records and adoption records.

This information lockout continues in his "transparent" presidency, with organization after organization having to sue under the FOI Act to get basic information about meetings, attendees, motives of people elected and appointed to govern us.

But, go ahead Dyson, keep being yourself. After all, you are a professor.

Eric, are you saying that it's racist to ask a black man "Who's your daddy?"

Because even Doonesbury had a strip doing the same back in the 70's ("Have you found out who your father was yet, Clyde?")

Cheers!

0bama told Biographers #1 he got poor grades from High school thru to Columbia
The 0bama’s told Biographer #2 Barrack gave Ayers some notes and asked Ayers to “finish” the first book

I guess we do not possess the nuance to understand 0bama

Golly!!! If Obambi's "intellectual credibility" is so awesome, you'd think that maybe somebody might consider releasing his records so everyone else can be so amazed as well.

Social standing? Hey "professor", when you own $7 billion you have all the social standing you will ever need. At that stage of the game, the only people you can't associate with are people you have no desire to associate with anyhow.

One of F.R.s resident grammarians can correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the dumb ass might mean "racism by implication, not "inference".

"Inferring" would be what the "prominent African-American" would be doing, while what he is accusing Trump of doing is "implying".

That's all they've got left. Obama's naked, he has no clothes. Obama is either the most incompetent dumb ass since Jimmy Carter OR he is actually trying to destroy America on purpose.

It makes no difference, Obama has to go.

Quite right, and well noted.

Perhaps curiously (but definitely hilariously), were it to be actually "racism by inference", this idiot would be calling **himself** out as racist, for it is he who is drawing the inference here.

If so, that’s a huge mistake by the Antiamerican Party. The other side has most of the firepower.

Not Racist at all. If you can’t stand on your record, you have not record to stand on. If you can’t be judged on the content of your character, then you have no content to be judged on.

This so-called ‘professor’ is completely clueless. Questions regarding Zero’s scholastic qualifications, or lack thereof, is just one of many end results of decades of affirmative action.

Dyson obviously thinks that Obama was poor student and his records would be embarrassing. Otherwise, Dyson would favor releasing those records.

Eric Dyson, a prominent African-American academic...

Hey Eric, you are an IDIOT. The country has become bankrupted by hate profiteers and the coffers are empty. Hate never filled an empty plate or produced one uplifting moment. GET a productive life. But in the event you cannot leave the subject of 'hate' it would serve you well to find out what exactly it is the Heavenly Father HATES, after all HE is the Creator and He controls everything He chooses to control... What goes around comes around and we have just about hit the 180 degree mark.
