Posted on 04/01/2012 10:12:27 PM PDT by Nachum
CNN's Soledad O'Brien, who has been pushing the racial angle in the Trayvon Martin case, and who infamously failed to smother President Barack Obama's association with radical Critical Race Theory professor Derrick Bell, has a long history of support for radicalism.
To take one little-known, but sensational, example:
In April 27, 2008, long after the Rev. Jeremiah Wright was already toxic, and a household name, OBrien gave a positive review of a radical speech Wright had delivered to the NAACP.
O'Brien may have been returning a favor, as Wright had given her and fellow CNN contributor Roland Martin a shout-out from the podium: An additional special thank you is offered to Soledad OBrien for CNNs outstanding Black in America [series], and my long term friend, Roland Martin, Wright said (video below).
Without mentioning the shout-out, OBrien reviewed the speech the next morning. It was an illuminating speech. It was a really funny, not angry, interesting, dynamic speech. So, certainly a home run for him from that perspective, she told CNNs (since canceled) American Morning the next day, leaving out the more controversial aspects of Wrights speech.
During that Detroit speech, Wright praised the work of several radicals, including Janice Hale, whose book, Learning While Black (2001), posits that black and whites think differently for biological reasons, and that the white educational system harms black children; to Geneva Smitherman, who encouraged the teaching of "Ebonics" in schools as a legitimate form of study; and to Tim Jacob Wise, self-appointed expert on racial sensitivity and author of a slew of books on white privilege."

Amazing how many totally racist blacks there are...
Some the inverse of KKK advocates.. just as myopic, just as hateful..
Some KKK advocates thought they were benefiting the USA..
The NNN advocates are for destruction of the USA..
A couple of generations of Americans were spoiled children and grew up to be spoiled adults..
Why doesn’t Soledad do a whole segment entirely in Ebonics?;)
I assume it was "J School" somewhere.
Would like to a) go back to her college days and find open public writings, such as reporting for school paper, op/eds, etc, and b) bring them to the attention of Breitbart. Big Journalism.
IMHO, this O'Brien individual is another Radical, Affirmative-Action Communist Race-Baiter who needs to be run out of town on a rail.
Promoted way beyond the Peter Principle
In sum, she is Affirmative Action made flesh.
She is the epitome of “token” in every way.
Ran across this:
CNN’S SOLEDAD O’BRIEN IS A RACIST
Interesting what you find when you turn over a rock.
Do you think she has been properly indoctrinated?
The linked article suggests she is opposed to McKinney; I don’t understand. McKinney is almost as bad a race-baiter as O’Brien; are they vying for top spot?
There is no one more attuned to what the perceived differences, past and present, between “ex-slave and ex-opposer” than McKinney. I think O’Brien, (my wife tells me the O’Brien’s’, her family, were once Kings of Ireland,) is just a Liberal/Progressive environmentally educated MSM person.
Her race-baiting specials are beyond “progressive”; she is a mulatto (or whatever the PC term is for a half Irish, half “black Hispanic” - as opposed to George Zimmerman-type “white Hispanic” - person).
