Yeah, sure. I wonder what Prof. Marc Lamont Hill, Ph.D. would have done when, had he been in Columbus’ place, becalmed in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean in command of three ships whose food and water are running low, the decision rests with him and him alone to continue or turn back. Yeah, Columbus is overrated ... until you step into his shoes.

Brilliance comes easily when you are looking backwards across five centuries.

And, oh, his shoes would have been several sizes too big for you, Marc, even though he didn’t have a Ph.D.

Elvis Presley: The Man was a literally King and had more class than many of his peers and successors.

For Insulting Elvis Presley Mr. Marc Lamont Hill Please Go stand at the Intersection next to Graceland.

Ronald Reagan: The Man who did what your side said could not be done; Beat the Soviets.

For Insulting President Reagen Mr. Hill, go lock yourself in a cage with Rabid Actor-Monkies.

Justin Bieber: Not One of my Favorites, but I know he isn't trying to out do "R&B"

Donald Trump: Whatever Trumps Failings, I am sure he has helped more people than you ever will Mr. Hill. Please go jump off the Trump Tower.

Prince Harry: Despite his poor judgement from time to time, his comment to his duties is unquestioned. Which I am sure that is something you know very little about Mr. Hill, Please go fly RAF Copters in Afghanistan in Prince Harry's Place, we need him more than you.

Tim Tebow: One of the best of this current crop of NFL stars. You could use a lesson in Humility Mr. Hill, so please show us how to Blitz please.

President Ubama's Economic Team: A Bunch of Putzes like you Mr. Hill.

NEXT

William Shakespeare: Than man who made the English Language what is today. Please equal that achievement Mr. Hill.

Babe Ruth: A Person who was the best at what he did and made no apologizes for it. Mr. Hill, please bat-a-thousand (without steroid use)

Duchess Kate Middleton: A Glamorous, yet humble Princess who has brought so much class to the House of Windsor that 45 years from now people will still be talking about it. You are not fit to shine the Duchess' SHOES Mr. Hill.

Joel Osteen: What you said about Joel Osteen Mr. Hill, all applies directly to you.

The Whole NHL (except Wayne Simmonds): Please continue to spit on a whole sport and their fans Mr Hill, I am sure the Hockey Players are most impressed once they glue a Puck to your face.

Bill Clinton: You are correct Mr. Hill, for all the wrong reasons. Tell me are better off under Slick Willy and Barak Ubama than you were during say President Eisenhower?

Eminem: Slim Shady, doing what black rappers have aspired too and failed since 1997.

Bill Walton: Mr. Hill you weary me. Sufficed to Say Bill Walton deserves his spot in the Hall Fame, something of which you will never be apart of.

Sarah Palin: A Leader of the Conservative Moment and one of the Greatest Threats to Comrade Ubama's plans.

Finally for insulting Sarah Palin Mr. Hill, please either go take a long walk off a short bridge into a Polar Bear pen or GTFO OF MY COUNTRY YOU USELESS PUTZ!

Sophomoric attitude.

The true history of the US government’s dealings with the Indians is one of lies, deceit and manipulation.

Better put, the US government’s dealings with the tribes up until about 1900 was similar to the way democrats would run things if they could have their way.

His remarks are intentionally insulting and racist and degrade all educators. What university would hire a boob like this to teach anything?

I did not read his list, but I do know two things: Babe Ruth was an allstar pitcher before he picked up a bat.

Then he dominated hitting for years, the way no one has since.

And Bill Walton is up there with Wilt and Bill. No question that he should be in the hall.

“ran white”? Did this idiot actually see him run? The only time I’ve ever “seen” Ruth run is on old video - and he’s running at triple speed.

I am an American Indian of the Creek and Kiowa tribes. My list of most overblown, self-worshiping Black English professors has only one listing: Marc Lamont Hill.
He didn't write the books he assigns to his students, and has never been paid a dime for for being a professional actor.

Hill is the a guy who is in the process of moving closer and closer to the Mount Rushmore of his own mind.
Hill doesn't dance white boy style.
Hill has no billions to allege. He's just a guy who got in English registration at college by mistake.
Hill doesn't have an estimate at all of how close to being the King of England he is.
Hill teaches at Columbia and he criticizes a football player who went to a school where they actually play the game and WIN?
Hill's school's basketball teams had one guy who didn't make it to the NBA but played Euroball and palled around with Eurotrash. They had another basketball guy who served time for gambling and was apparently murdered by an organized crime assassin. They won an Ivy League title 44 years ago. I think they got Ivy for their trouble.
Hill teaches, but doesn't write like Shakespeare. And you know what they say about people who can't do?
Hill dissed Babe Ruth without letting us see his own professional baseball trophies.
Hill dissed Princess Kate. Wonder if it was because he wasn't invited to the wedding.
Hill schmaltzed Joe Osteen because he says Osteen isn't a legitimate theologian and is a salesman in pastor's clothing. Hmm. I wonder if he knows REVEREND Jesse Jackson and REVEREND Al Sharpton both of whom are rather brilliant theologians because they seem to know which commandments to break, like the one about adultery and the one about bearing false witness. Or are a daughter not with one's wife, and a $65,000 judgment not proof of adultery and false witness? And of course, Big Al's supporters paid the $65,000.
Hill dissed Bill Clinton because he's not a savior. At what point has Hill spent six hours on a cross?
Hill disses Eminem and likes Black Thought, Kool Keith, Jean Grae and Pharoah Monche. Can Hill not communicate with white people?
He disses Bill Walton without saying a thing about all those record-setting African-American athletes who are crowding the scholastic hallways down by the sports broadcasting major waiting room.
Hill disses Sarah Palin without saying anything about Barry Obama. Although his political career is likely over, Obama continues to be a powerbroker among left wing extremists. Despite his lack of knowledge of policy or strategy, Obama is still a go-to leg-thrill giver on MSNBC. No one destroys the myth of Black accomplishment more than Barry Obama.

I agree. I think the graphic comes from a t-shirt company.

But, as you point out, it's been over 100 years. It's time for the Native American activists to move on and get over the reality that they lost to a conquering force. They are not alone in that regard. The same has happened to all people at some point in their history, whether their people are from the new world, Africa, Asia or Europe.

I'm of Irish descent. We were also conquered and treated horribly by invading forces in our history. But I don't dwell on it and still look for restitution or sympathy. It's a new day.

Muhammad was white? Since when? I would call him an Arab, and in the 7th century I don’t know if any of them could be called “white”.

Long long ago when I attended primary school, we were taught that there were three races - caucasian, negro, and mongoloid. All people were cast into one of those three groups. The near east peoples were considered caucasians. A lot has changed sin the 1950's.

The idea of some nitwit making up a list of overrated people of another ethnic persuasion is so idiotic it’s costing me IQ points just responding. I harbor a strong suspicion that Hill is just doing this to get his name broadcast. Ignoring this piece of stupidity by the big names in media would be the best course.

My grandfather—now long gone to his reward—said all the Indians he met were worthless. He said ‘The Good ones fought and died for their land—all we have now are the cowards who stayed in their teepees.’ He was a westerner—rancher—who lived in Wyoming—born under a covered wagon. He was a man of his era.

Elvis didn't write his own songs

The notion of the "singer-songwriter" being the ideal, from the 60s, has been one of the greatest disasters in musical history.

The two skills are utterly unrelated. This can be seen by authors. I often listen to books on CD while driving. Occasionally one will be "read by the author." Most of the time, not always, it's a disaster. Much less effective than when read by a professional in that particular skill.

Imagine if we insisted that actors write their own lines, or screenwriters become actors.
