"The Dozen Most Overrated Black People": Can you imagine if I (or any other columnist) actually wrote an article with this title and subject?
....So what to make of Columbia University Associate Professor Marc Lamont Hill's article.....entitled "The 15 Most Overrated White People".....
......This cannot remain acceptable in America -- by which I do not mean that Hill should not be heard, but rather than he should not be heard without the challenges he so richly deserves.
The media and Columbia University do the nation a disservice by giving this transparently racist pseudo-intellectual an uncontested platform from which to further divide the nation and harm American education at all levels. While one would hope that our fellow citizens are smart enough to see through Mr. Hill, to see how his words rip off our nation's slowly healing race scabs, I am skeptical, particularly with the general lack of skeptical voices questioning Hill's rhetoric, motivation, and destructive impact.
Other than asking Hill about Iran, Bill O'Reilly is better than his usual populist self when it comes to his occasional debates with Hill, standing up against the race-hustler's baseless charges of congenital racism among non-liberal whites. Even after Fox News "fired" Hill in 2009 for his support of two convicted cop-killers, O'Reilly had him back on the air, including again this year.
Yet the fact that so-called "conservative" O'Reilly has given so much airtime to the race-conspiracy-minded Hill was lost on equally race-minded Ebony magazine interviewer.....who... framed a question, without a trace of irony, thus: "Your TV career began and flourished at Fox, who are notorious for their bias."
If Mark Lamont Hill thinks writing about "overrated white people" is funny, that says a lot about the man. If he was serious, it says even more.....

Li invokes what she regards as a well-established--what? scientific?--theory called "Critical Race Theory." She avers that "scholars" in this "field" have "demonstrated" that "whiteness" is a "social identity built upon unearned entitlements." Demonstrated! Like physicists have demonstrated quantum theory!
Li quotes another race theorist, one Peggy McIntosh, who claims that "whiteness" is "an invisible weightless knapsack of special provisions, maps, passports, codebooks, visas, clothes, tools, and blank checks." Li does not indicate the evidence McIntosh offers for this bizarre claim......"
MLH is certainly the race hustler. I have nothing but contempt for the man.
As far as overrated black men go, I have two initial nominees:
1) Cornel West
2) Tavis Smiley
... that is, unless you rate them on the basis of pomposity. ‘Pod
Chris Rock, and most any other black comedian.
Barack Obama, Pants on Fire - "Now we have hard documented evidence that President Obama will go before an audience and lie to their faces.
Remember the video, released the night before last week's debate, from June 5, 2007? The one where Obama alleged to a black audience that the federal government had not waived the Stafford Act requirements for New Orleans after Katrina like they did for New York after 9/11 or for Florida after Hurricane Andrew? The implication was obviously that this was because the federal government doesn't care as much about New Orleans or its "predominantly black" inhabitants.
Thomas Sowell clears up a bit about the president's then, ahem, "confusion" on this matter in his latest piece at Townhall:
"If you want to know what community organizers do, this is it -- rub people's emotions raw to hype their resentments. And this was Barack Obama in his old community organizer role, a role that should have warned those who thought that he was someone who would bring us together, when he was all too well practiced in the arts of polarizing us apart.
Why is the date of this speech important? Because, less than two weeks earlier, on May 24, 2007, the United States Senate had in fact voted 80-14 to waive the Stafford Act requirement for New Orleans, as it had waived that requirement for New York and Florida. More federal money was spent rebuilding New Orleans than was spent in New York after 9/11 and in Florida after hurricane Andrew, combined.
Truth is not a job requirement for a community organizer. Nor can Barack Obama claim that he wasn't present the day of that Senate vote, as he claimed he wasn't there when Jeremiah Wright unleashed his obscene attacks on America from the pulpit of the church that Obama attended for 20 years.
Unlike Jeremiah Wright's church, the U.S. Senate keeps a record of who was there on a given day. The Congressional Record for May 24, 2007 shows Senator Barack Obama present that day and voting on the bill that waived the Stafford Act requirement. Moreover, he was one of just 14 Senators who voted against -- repeat, AGAINST -- the legislation which included the waiver."
Not only was the Stafford Act waived by Congress two weeks before Barack Obama went all Kanye West in this speech in 2007, but Barack Obama voted against the bill that waived it. ........................"
Academia is populated over-whelmingly by bigots. It is obvious that White parents are paying for their children to be indoctrinated to hate Jesus Christ, their family’s values, and their own White skin.
Communists have always run re-education camps. The kicker here is that White parents willingly send their children to ours.
A few obvious choices are out there too, Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Whoopie Goldberg. Oh, Wookie Obama too.
Now wait a sec! I hope you are not including Dave Chappelle or Eddie Murphy.
My first reaction when I read the headline was 0bama. My second reaction was shock that someone would publish such a list. My third reaction was that ths person was going to get the Stacey Dash treatment.
Silly me. A list of white people. That’s ok then, just like the CBC, NAACP, UNCF, ....
1) Barack Obama
2) Tiger Woods
The rest aren't even close...
I nominate Maya Angelou as most overrated living black female poet (how that for a sub-category). The Ivory Tower Lihturaature and Social Sciences fell in love with her black woman voice during the mid-seventies which is, coincidentally, about two years after she wrote her last good poem.
Sharpton and Jackson should make the top 5.
These are the fruits of the great divider.
You mean the two most over-rated HALF BLACK MEN!
Here’s my critical race theory. Snoop Dogg. Number 1 putrid black man. Disgusting hate-filled racist. Not one redeeming quality. A disgrace to the human race.
I would say Eric Holder, but Holder is nor really rated that highly anyway. Even blacks know he is just a puppet.
No Obama is definitely at the top of the scale,
my second choice would be Colon Powell.George Bush’s errand boy.Highly over rated brown noser.Affimative Action General.
Whoopi Goldberg is WAY over rated, just off the charts in accolades and she has nothing between her ears, and can’t figure out the difference between a pound of butter and a bag of M and M’s.
Of course the point of the article is not to name the most overrated black people,
but to point out that writing an article about the “15 most overrated WHITE people” is just as racist as pointing out the most overrated BLACK people.
Black racists need to start being called on it and derided publicly as the racists that they are. They need to be treated with the same disdain that any other racist is treated.
On the other hand... Charles Payne for president. Bill Cosby for Sec. of Education.
