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.

he finds it perplexing people “continue to praise the vicious conquistador as a hero.”

Yeah, why praise the successful?

The left loves them some victims.

The more beaten, the more heroic.

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.

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

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

"Prominent"? The guy's an Associate Professor of English Education, f'Petessake. A union plumber with seniority has more credibility than this creep.

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.

I don’t know if he’s paid, but he is on. But only to discuss issues relating to blacks. Apparently this professor’s opinions are not too reliable on any topic not called “race.” I guess that indicates his actual field of expertise.

Not many people realize:

1. “judged by the content of their character, and not the color of their skin” was NOT first written by MLK

2. large parts of his PhD dissertation are said to have been plagiarized

A powerful speaker? Yes. But there is more to the whole picture....

I am so sick of the double standard. Here’s obviously a racist, and he gets away with it with no negative repercussions because he’s black. He could make the point with almost every single one of the list, but then he paints the whole NHL, and I’m sure it’s because there’s hardly any black players there. Could you just imagine if some white professor did the same thing, but with a list of over-rated black people, and mentioned the NBA within that list? He would lose his job over it, because nobody wants their kids taught by a freaking racist. But it’s okay because he’s black?

Tebow is a very good football player. Tebow has realistic goals and abilities. Ask the Steelers if he’s overrated.

I just saw him throw a beautiful pass downfield that was dropped!
He’s a winner all day, everyday!

I will agree with him on these people as being overrated: Justin Bieber, Donald Trump, Prince Harry, Tim Tebow, President Obama's Economic Team, Kate Middleton, Joel Osteen, The Whole NHL, Bill Clinton, and Eminem. And, to some extent, I agree that (flame suit on) Sarah Palin is overrated: Governor for less than one term of a low-population state and losing VP nominee should not warrant this much fame.

But these people are definitely NOT overrated:

Elvis Presley: One of the greatest popular singers of the 20th century (along with Crosby and Sinatra).

Ronald Reagan: Won the Cold War; the most revered figure in the conservative movement.

William Shakespeare: Are you kidding me?? Shakespeare is one of the most important, influential figures in the history of Western Civilization! The most imporant writer in the history of the English language!

Babe Ruth: The greatest baseball player ever, probably the greatest professional athlete ever, his stardom transcended his sport.

Bill Walton: I saw Walton play many times in his prime. Terrific all-around center, one of the best ever, when healthy.
