The Critical Race Theory of Bell and Obama
Examiner.com/Charleston ^ | 3/11/2012 | Kyle Rogers

Posted on 03/18/2012 6:55:22 PM PDT by RoosterRedux

More information has emerged that Obama not only supported Critical Race Theory, but he assigned books on it as a lecturer [@ Univ of Chic].

To understand where CRT comes from, you must know a little about Critical Theory. This was a plan devised by the Frankfurt School in the 1920...

While most people will not recognize their names, many would recognize their handiwork. Magnus Hirschfeld was a leading homosexual rights activist in Germany in the 1920s. It was Hirschfeld who first coined the attack phrase “racist.” He wrote an entire book in 1930 describing how to use the word “racist” to browbeat political opponents into silence.

Derrick Bell, the first tenured black law professor at the Harvard School of Law, was a student of Critical Theory. In fact Bell devised his own theory called Critical Race Theory. Bell claimed that whites will perpetually oppress black people.

Critical Race Theory:

“Whiteness” is an illegitimate social construct to oppress other people.

“Blackness” is a legitimate social construct to resist oppression.

Black failures is caused by white oppression.

Blacks will continue to fail in life for the foreseeable future and it will be the fault of whites.

The US Constitution does not have the capacity to keep whites from oppressing blacks.

Only a totalitarian Marxist government can correct white oppresion AND/OR

Whites must cease to exist as an identifiable group.

Bell said that he “lives to harass white people.” Bell was a major supporter of Louis Farrakhan. Jeremiah Wright, the man Obama describes as his “mentor,” is also a major Farrakhan backer, as is Michelle Obama.

It is strange...but we must dig into the history of the "charge of racism" and of CRT to understand the underpinnings of what is going on today in America.

D@mn shame too...Obama is creating a racial division that may never heal.

My 91 y/o mother was a head start teacher...co-founded it in my town. She is heart sick over this backstory (but not completely surprised)!

I thought CRT stood for Confused Radical Thought.

Old news to those of us who pay attention. No news to those who allow their information to come from the MSM. We have spawned our own little future Fuhrer.

Yes, and as proof just look at how successful black have been under Marxist regimes. Cuba is what 30% black-how many people of color are in the ruling Politburo? How many black generals in the Cuban army? How many black managers of government owned factories? Well either zero or darn few.

Oh...you knew the history of Derrick Bell before a few weeks ago?

Why weren't you spreading the word like Breitbart!

You might want to rethink that post.

Mr. Corleone is a long time FReeper in good standing, has conducted himself admirably on this board over the years, has contributed tremendously to the discussion over Zero’s complete inadequacy to be CiC, and, you being a relatively new FReeper, I recommend that you review a poster’s history before criticizing him/her.

That’s why.

.... How successful has CRT been in Africa?

All these”doctors” and “professors” are fortunate their forefathers were lousy athletes, allowing them to end up here and not Africa!

Never is a long time. But a century sounds about right. He knows it. I can see it in the perpetual sneer he wears.

Are you saying that the truth should stand in line behind Freeper posting history.

I don't think any Freeper would want that.

Ego before Truth?

I am not saying that my post was more truthful than "Mr." Corleone's post...but shouldn't freepers and lurkers decide.

And was my question out of line...if this matter re: CRT is old news, why wasn't it reported by Mr Corleone before Breitbart?

If it was...I stand corrected. But I follow this kind of thing closely...and it was obscure before Breitbart.

If a tree falls in the forest and there is nobody there to hear it, does it make a sound?

Black failures is caused by white oppression.

I've never seen the list of black Nobel prize winners... Does anyone have that? And I'm NOT talking about the 'peace' prize - that's always given to someone who doesn't like the United States. Something real - medicine - physics - art - how many have blacks won?

Shouldn't that read "Black failures BE caused by white oppression"?

I know, I know, I am going straight to h*ll for that one!

That’s the most amazing justification for a useless smartass comment that I’ve ever heard.

"If a tree falls in the forest and there is nobody there to hear it, does it make a sound?"

Yes. "Sound" = a series of changes in atmospheric density induced by an object in motion. Those phenomena occur whether someone is there to hear "them" or not. "Critical theory" is about as bogus as it gets.

Nah... you’ll just have to walk through one of those “avoidance” areas on the google maps with $100 bills hanging out of your pockets... at 11:00pm.

Well, if they think whites are bad, wait until they are ruled by blacks from Africa, or perhaps other non-white, but not black, peoples from around the world.

How non-racist do you think the Chinese, for example, are, or the Arabs, who didn’t eliminate slavery until the 1960s. Of course, it wasn’t just blacks who were enslaved there, so I guess it’s alright.
