Obama made his own students read some of Derrick Bell's most inflammatory writings [abbrev. title]
breitbart.com ^ | 3/8/2012 | Charles C. Johnson

In 1994, Barack Obama taught a course at the University of Chicago Law School entitled, "Current Issues in Racism and the Law." The reading list and syllabus for that class were made available by the New York Times in 2008, though there seems to have been little analysis of its content by Jodi Kantor, the Times’s Obama correspondent.

Obama routinely assigned works by Bell as required reading, including Bell's racialist interpretations of seminal civil rights laws and cases. No other scholar’s work appears as often in the syllabus as Bell’s does.

I wonder what Bell's books cost. Forcing kids to buy books written by your friends is like coercion. Bell made out for sure thanks to “O”

He didn't teach anything. He was an instructor. And, that title is dubious at best. He was not a professor, an associate professor, or anything remotely connected with academia. His tenure (used here very very tenuously) was that of an instructor of dubious pedigree and hiring. In other words, academically, he had no effing standing.

has the media ever interviewed anyone that can attest to taking a class taught by Obama?

If so - what was the grade?

seriously - there are no Harvard Law grads coming forward saying that he was an intellectual dynamo.

If Breitbart found a syllabus, I hope they found a test.

I know people that attended Harvard Law at the time of Prof Obama’s adjunct professorship. As one said: “If he taught a course it was news to me.”

Apparrantly he wasn’t an L1 constitutional law professor.

He is trying to use this victim agitation tactic to gain female votes, new propaganda - this country is unfair to women. Republicans are bad guys, want to deny you your health rights.

very disturbing when you consider how women are treated in Muslim countries.

Divide and conquer, by appealing to the gullible in each group or subgroup. This country is unfair to women, this country is unfair to blacks, this country is unfair to gays, this country is unfair to minorities, this country is unfair to the 99%...

Is that the best the Regime can come up with?

Even the gullible have their limits, especially when their wallets are emptier than they were pre-Obama.

None of this should surprise anyone. At this same time, Obama was attending Sunday services at Rev. Wright's Church, where America was being "damned" from the pulpit.

When Obama finally broke with Rev. Wright's congregation in the 2008 campaign, he nevertheless showed himself to be clearly to the Left of Reverend Wright: (See Race & Ethnic Politics In America--2008.)

Rev. Wright may hate us White people, he at least understands more of how the American economy works than the more committed Socialist Obama.

Bell in action through Obama:

Whites are targeted as follows:

Most elderly are whites. Whites are targeted for death by the Obamacare death committees.

Heavy taxation on tanning - targeted at whites.

Dropping the voter intimidation case against the NOI thugs (the klan with a tan) claiming whites don’t have voting rights. It’s only for blacks.

Homeland inSecurity classifying whites as domestic terrorists through selecting white dominate causes and constitutional ideologies and groups as targets. Obama has the power to kill these race enemies of the state w/o a trial now.

Cities across the country and the FBI failing to classify black mob hate crimes against whites as hate crimes.

Reverse discrimination. NYPD excluding whites from test preparation classes.

Race exclusive hate/pride race doctrines, organization and power structures for all but whites. The congressional black and hispanic caucus, hispanic and black police, teachers and fire union organizations, for example, plus race studies for black and hispanics while it is banned for whites. We have social, economic and legal inequality directed at harming whites.

White is protrayed as culturally bland, without talent, dangerous, greedy, valueless, oppressive and a burden to humanity. White kids are the targets of this false cultural and historical racism, hate, it’s violence, and discrimination in education and the workplace in many areas of American life. It is like the days when segregation democrats taught black kids their meaning as inferior and evil people and history.

Whites are going to be a minority in this country and the majority are being taught that they are vermin. Jews are included in this target.

He did teach a few classes at Chicago. The student evaluations were available a while ago. Additionally, an acquaintance of mine worked with him there. And I’ve met people who knew him on the harvard law review. He was clearly an affirmative action candidate for editor in chief, but he held the office even if he didn’t do anything while occupying it.

And lest you think I’m a leftist plant defending resident zero, feel free to check out how long I’ve been a poster here.

Zero is a despicable, lazy, racist, communist scumbag who needs to be frogmarched out of the office in handcuffs. But he was a part time instructor at Chicago.

He was simply a hired agitator there, the same thing he was out on the street.

You mean because, being dead, he wouldn't be in the position to damage the U.S. as Obama is doing?

“But he was a part time instructor at Chicago.”

It’s strange how when he was supposedly “vetted” by the Dems and the Media, his adjunct professorship was trotted about as if he were Mr Chips...

yeah, that steamed me. I’ve worked for guys like him — never actually did anything in their lives, just got into position after position and held it just long enough to move on to the next gig without doing major damage that could be connected to them.

Unfortunately, he’s breaking with the pattern now and democrats are too stupid to realize that they’ve voted to sell their economic souls and liberties to a communist traitor. I’d say they deserve what they get except it’s my country he’s ruining.
