This is exactly how one of my officemates (who is black) thinks and talks. He has stated outright that blacks are incapable of being racist, but he still manages to find some penumbra of racism hiding in every single thing every white person ever says or does. If the variables were reversed, he’d be out on his ass tomorrow, but as things are, he’s praised and surrounded by people who tell him that he’s right about everything.

I must admit I feel superior to Derrick Bell.

I’m not racist.

Bell is going to be the gift that keeps on giving.
He won’t change the “mind” of the hardcore Obamite, but we WILL educate the independents as to who Obama really is.

You should break the news to him that white people don’t even think about race until he mentions it, and then they consider it to be his personal problem.

He will believe that is further evidence of racism.

I think the problem is not that "whites" feel "superior," it's that Mr. Bell feels inferior, and somebody has to pay.

Ha. In academia it's suicide not to think about race, especially if you happen to be a white male who interacts with minorities of any stripe.

No, the FACT that my parents were married, and
the FACT that we are typically law abiding, and
the FACT that we take it upon ourselves to be better educated as well as
the FACT that we have the good sense to treat our bodies with respect; all tend to create a culture that is inherently superior to the Black Culture.

This is not unique to White America, you see this in the Asian cultures as well as in India - all of which are prospering; and everyone easily eclipses the Blacks, not only in America, but throughout the world. It has nothing to do with race, it has to do with CULTURE.

Where White/Asian/Indian Culture holds education, self-discipline, and personal accomplishments in high esteem; the Black Culture holds violence, ignorance and 'thuggery' as an objective of worship.

Yes, otherwise we white folks would have to fall back on just our hundreds and hundreds of years of awe-inspiring contributions to civilization to feel superior... But black Arabs invented math.

Black Egyptians invented technology.

Jesus was black.

Let's not forget about black Santa...and...

what about Kwanzaa??

The left is all about hate, division and using people foolish enough to go along with it. It’s how Barry grew up.

It must really try your patience to work with such a boor.

Good grief, we’ve managed to find someone more vapid, more stupid, more unqualified for any real job, and one who’s done even less than our Cretin-in-Chief.

And, since he’s a “professor,” we also know that some low-standards university was fooled into thinking that this loon’s PhD was actually something in an intellectual subject.

Wonder what university it could be?

Perhaps one that gives out law degrees to semi-literate students...?

That's a big pet peeve of mine. Racism is hate, plain and simple. Hate comes from the heart. We all have hearts. If not get your buddy to E.R. he has a problem. So anyone can hate.

This “We have no power” B.S. is, well B.S. The Jews in Auschwitz & Dachau had no power but still hated the Germans.

Hate is a powerful but misguided emotion. I am off the soap box now. LOL

The more complaints I hear about racism, the less I care.

Obama has helped to lead this country down..... to a place wherein if you are not Black, you are a racist. I am stuck with my white skin, so I am now a racist.

I like good people, I don’t like bad people. I like law abiding folks, I hate crooks. I respect conservatives and I have nothing but disgust for libs. I like people who believe in God, but I don’t like even being around the “holier-than-thou” pew jumpers. I love patriots and I hate traitors. I love apple pie, but I hate broccoli so much that it pi$$es me off any time that vile weed is in my house.

I guess I have lots of things I like and dislike—love and hate, but it’s never been about skin color.... heck, I think dark skin actually looks very good.

Unfortunately, I am white, I bow to no man, I can be very outspoken, even reckless with my disregard to PC speak.... all resulting in me being a racist.

I would wish I wasn’t white so I wouldn’t have to be a racist, but I’m not sure what color to choose.

I guess I would want the color that came with the thickest skin, then maybe, just maybe, I wouldn’t have to spend my life crying about my color.

It’s not about the color of a man’s skin, it’s about how thick it is.

Derrick Bell seems to have had very thin skin....

If the hussein presidency has done anything, it’s showed us who the REAL racists are in this country. Screw the liberal white guilt trips.

Dang right it does. And have you ever seen a black dude that looked horrible with a shaved head? It's not fair, I tell you.

LMAO.... I shaved my head once. My wife hated it, I hated it and my kids were horrified. I had to wear a cap for a month. I looked like I had escaped from a mental institution. ;>)

Do you feel like getting your brain scrambled? Google “Critical Race Theory”, formulated by Derrick Bell and others. What is really scary is that this guy is a close pal with the Bamster, and has been a professor at prominent law schools.

I had a black guy who worked for me about 20 years ago. He was an articulate manager whom I thought was totally color-blind, and whom was treated from a color-blind perspective.
For years things went well until at a company function, he made an unwanted pass at a female employee who made a formal complaint.

While he admitted to his inappropriate behavior, this color-blind employee, whom everyone liked and respected, all of a sudden threw down the race card and claimed he was being treated unfairly due to being black.

I’ve heard from many others that those who are the least suspected of having a racial bone in their bodies, will throw down the race card when they are found to be in violation of any policies or procedures that could jeopardize their employment.

Had a liberal friend who attended Harvard Law in the late ‘80s. He was reading.... drumroll please... Critical Legal Theory.

Yup, brain-scrambling is right. He gave me stuff to read, but it was indecipherable and unbearable.

I asked my BIL, a law school dean at a Catholic College, what it was all about.”Oh, it’s just Marxist gobbledygook.”

A PJMedia article this morning showed footage of Michelle protesting for Bell at Harvard in ‘88, the year she graduated. Obama attended harvard from 88-91, and we have footage of him in 91 supporting Bell also.

Now, tell me what are the chances that two blacks at a minority black law school, who rallied in support of the same black radical professor, did not know each other at the time? By my reckoning, it’s an impossibility.

The story about them meeting by chance when they just happened to get jobs at the same law firm after Barack graduated is horsecrap. They must have known each other from their black radical associations at Harvard, and then Michelle either helped Barry get his job, or they both got their jobs through the same connections.

Nice little rant.

Couldn't agree more.

Where White/Asian/Indian Culture holds education, self-discipline, and personal accomplishments in high esteem; the Black Culture holds violence, ignorance and 'thuggery' as an objective of worship.
