Skip to comments.Late Prof. Derrick Bell’s Widow Defends Him Against Sarah Palin And Co. ‘Racist’ Smear
Posted on 03/13/2012 9:27:49 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
The late Professor Derrick Bell, who was the first black tenured professor at Harvard Law School, has become collateral damage in a failed conservative attempt to discredit President Obama. Smeared by conservative websites, and figures like Sarah Palin, as radical and racist, and unable to speak in his own defense, Prof. Bells legacy now rests with those who knew him. On Monday nights The Ed Show, the late professors widow Janet Dewart Bell responded to these attacks on her deceased husband.
The conservative Breitbart.com family of Big sites have lately devoted themselves to smearing the late Professor Derrick Bell as a radical who committed the unspeakable outrage of hugging our future president, releasing the incriminating footage of then-Harvard Law Review President Barack Obama introducing Prof. Bell at a pro-diversity protest. Although the Hug Scandal has gotten very little traction in the mainstream media, the smears against Prof. Bell have mounted. Rather than explore the ways in which Prof. Bells work has been twisted and smeared, Host Ed Schultzs interview with Prof. Bells widow focused on the vicious attacks on his character.

Keep the story alive...
So how is “everything is whitey’s fault”
She learned her lesson well. Any and all criticism is to be met with a charge of racism.
The problem is, that dog won’t hunt anymore. Four years of Obama’s garbage and his minions slavish defense and reflexive abuse of the racism card have left it with little or no value.
Read about his life, his ideology and his writings. The guy was a racist and a marxist, Jim.
Who is this tool Tommy Christopher?
Read about him here....sheesh.....he was a piece of work....Racist work....
If leftwing black racism becomes widely known,
they lose their biggest weapon that they use to avoid
actually having to defend leftist policy -
the accusation of “racism”.
It’s amusing watching the racist demoKKKrats defending blacKKK racists.
When the race war starts, the first victims will be liberal honkies living in big Marxist cities. These people are stupid beyond measure.
Haha....That's rich. A white woman lawyer fawning over a racist who believed that if a black man were to rape a white woman, he should receive less punishment because the laws she would use against him were "stacked" to her race's benefit. Steinem, you useful idiot!
Liberals use the race card under the mantra: “When boxed in by logic, whip it out.”
Who are they to call it “failed”? It’s clear to me that he is (was) a rascist. I had only heard the name in passing before Breitbart released the video. I’d say that it was at least modestly successful.
Because whites need to be continually reminded that they are all racists. If you weren't a white racist, you would understand.
How does that jibe with this?
"Bell signed a credo calling for the abolishment of the white race as a social category...
I had no idea this existed, unless you just put it together.
Just found it on Google Images when I typed “Blazing Saddles Whip this out”
Among the Communist Left, leveling that charge is now as unconscious and automatic as the patellar reflex.
After all, Marx's legacy doesn't rest with "those who knew him": why should Bell get a pass?
For good or ill, crazy race-baiters like Bell live on in their body of work. He hated whitey: that is his legacy.
And it looks like being Obama's legacy as well.
I don’t think that even “pointing out the obvious” is going to help that man out.
Real quick, this runs through their head:
“I’m not informed enough on the issue at hand, OR, I AM informed enough to understand that my position on the issue is not morally defensible,
so that makes YOU a racist.”
Well, here on the RECEIVING end, I’ve been rejecting outright, that ignorant, reflexive accusation for decades.
The rest of white America, suffused as they are in LeftMedia driven guilt, not so much.
The truth is not a smear.
Bell was the founder of the Neo Marxist, Critical Race Theory, which demands racist favoritism under law toward blacks replace the Civil Rights standards of equal justice under law for all Americans.
His racist views on the law and justice were the mirror image of the racist views of the Jim Crow Laws that gave racist favoritism to whites up until the mid 1960s..
But racist views against white Americans are in vogue today with cowardly “liberals”, especially those shills in the Corrupt Liberal Media like Soledad O’Brien
