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.

BJ Clinton on list, LMAO.
Obama Economic team
Where would the seed of Marc Lamont Hill have sprouted if not for the West’s inhabitancy of North America?
O’Reilly calls this guy “Doctor”. His PHd is in “African Studies”.
I will put him in the number 2 spot
If Baraq is “black” (debatable since he’s a halfrican)
He HAS to be at the top of the list.
Let your racist flag fly, dems!
LMAO — that has got to be one of the most tasteless things I have ever seen, but flippin hysterical!!!!
I get why looney lib professor would put Reagan on the list. I agree about Tebow - most overrated player in NFL history.
but Babe Ruth? Seriously?
Marc also wrote a book. Synopsis is:
This collection of conversations between celebrity intellectual Marc Lamont Hill and famed political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal is a shining example of African American men speaking for themselves about the many forces impacting their lives. Covering topics such as race, politics, hip-hop culture,
education, mass incarceration, and love, their discussions shine a spotlight on some of the most pressing issues in 21st century African American life.
My take: See Marc push racism and Islam. LOL
If he hates our culture so much, remind him that the pinnacle of African culture, was the Zulus.
He can build a mud hut and start drinking cow blood anytime he wants.
I have my own list of overrated white people that I'd be happy to share with the good Professor:
1. Karl Marx
2. Friedrich Engels
3. George Bernard Shaw
4. Che Guevara
5. Alger Hiss
6. Gloria Steinem
7. Walter Cronkite
8. Jane Fonda
9. Noam Chomsky
9.5 Barack 0bama - half of him, anyway
10. Margaret Sanger
That isn't even the top ten, it's ten off the top of my head. Yes, I am aware the Chomsky did some decent work in linguistics. Hitler was good to his dogs. It doesn't matter.
Idiot boy postulates that if the Babe had to face black pitchers he would have been a stiff.
Racist fantasy knows no bounds, apparently....
A professor of English education obviously knows how to judge everyone in history. It’s a farce.
Ivy League... that is the same thing as a progressive dickhead... isn’t it?
If he could get away with it, he’d eat white people. He’s one of the more rabid of the liberal racist bunch. Klan with a tan leader.
