A prominent Ivy-League professor denounced Columbus Day and mocked those who celebrate it by releasing a list of individuals he deems are the 15 most overrated white people on Monday.
Marc Lamont Hill, Associate Professor of English Education at Columbia University, wrote that the holiday is one of Americas most bizarre cultural rituals and that he finds it perplexing people continue to praise the vicious conquistador as a hero.
To honor the true spirit of Columbus Day, I have created my own list of overrated white people, he wrote in his article published on the Huffington Post.
The list includes Elvis Presley, Ronald Reagan, Babe Ruth, William Shakespeare, Tim Tebow, among others.
Elvis didn't write his own songs (despite taking credit for them), barely played the guitar, and was a worse actor than the entire cast of Belly, wrote Hill.

Doesn’t Fox pay this loser?
Isn’t Hill that cross-eyed idiot that Hannity is always blabbing away with? It’s pretty obvious he has a problem with “white” people.
Is this that gay guy that’s on Fox now and then?

It appears somebody needed 15 minutes of fame.
Whoever brings up race first is the racist.
I think he’s on O’Reilly.
This is just disgusting.
Yeah, why praise the successful?
The left loves them some victims.
The more beaten, the more heroic.
Shakespeare? This joker teaches English at a prestigious university. Affirmative action cultural suicide in action.
Donovan McNabb comes to mind...
Most annoying academics are highly over rated, over paid and over here. Send them to some backwater hell-hole where they can luxuriate in the cultural splendor free from the poison of Americanism, Christianity and Western ideals.
They are all tied for #1.
Was thinking of a list of overrated liberal college teachers, but that would be an unnecessary waste of paper.
Marc Lamont Hill probably wouldn’t be thought of on such a list. He’s irrevelant
Marc Lamont Hill: Black Ku Klan Klan Racist
Can you imagine the whining this Black Racist would do if someone published: 15 Over-rated Black People?
MSNBC is nothing more than Black KKK TV
Columbus was a conquistador? Thankfully, this professor of “English Education” is not a member of Columbia’s History Department.
So who are the 15 most overrated black people then?”
How many are rated?
