    Fox News ^ | 5-27-2014
    President Barack Obama’s administration has quietly suggested it is willing to create a two-tier race-based legal system in Hawaii, where one set of taxes, spending and law enforcement will govern one race, and the second set of laws will govern every other race.

    Professor Admits Hiding Obama College Video By Todd Starnes Harvard University Law School professor Charles Ogletree admitted that he hid controversial video footage featuring a college-age President Obama speaking at a campus rally in support of a radical professor. "I hid this during the 2008 campaign," Ogletree said in the video. "I don't care if they find it now." The entire video was aired exclusively on Hannity by Breitbart.com editor-in-chief Joel Pollak and contributor Ben Shapiro. The unedited video shows Obama speaking at a 1991 rally for Professor Derrick Bell. Bell has been described as the Jeremiah Wright of academia....

    Race Theory professor Derrick Bell did not end after Harvard Law School--and certainly not at the April 24, 1990 rally at which Obama embraced Bell, literally and figuratively. Breitbart News has discovered a letter sent by Obama to Bell in February 1995 in which Obama asks Bell to review--and to blurb--an early version of Obama’s autobiography, then entitled Dreams of My Father. The letter is preserved in the archives of New York University, to which Bell donated his papers. The archives--which are open to the public--include Bell’s papers from decades of research, writing, teaching, and speaking. The website for the...

    Valerie Jarrett is not only one of President Barack Obama’s closest advisors; she also is one of the most radical, with close connections to the Chicago left that nurtured Obama in his early political career. The Iranian-born Jarrett (her parents were American expatriates) found a foothold in Chicago politics through her marriage to Dr. William Robert Jarrett, whose father Vernon held sway as a columnist on the Chicago Sun-Times--for a time, the city’s only major black columnist. In 1991, Vernon Jarrett enthusiastically promoted a Chicago visit by professor Derrick Bell, who was still on voluntary unpaid leave from Harvard Law...
  • Critical Race Theory: A Cult of Anti-White Resentment (Why is it widely sermonized in our colleges?)

    American Thinker ^ | 03/22/2012 | By John T. Bennett
    When asked by CNN's Soledad O'Brien about the definition of critical race theory (CRT), Emory Law Professor Dorothy Brown offered the following: "Critical race theory seeks to explain judicial decisions by asking the question, What does race have to do with it?" CRT simply "looks at race in America," professor Brown stated. That's a bit like saying that a religious zealot just "looks at" theology. Critical race theorists do not merely look at racial questions. Like zealots, they give answers; they preach a doctrine, seek converts, and condemn nonbelievers. Indeed, CRT is the primary source of Orwellian "hate speech" proposals....

    More information has emerged that Obama not only supported Critical Race Theory, but he assigned books on it as a lecturer [@ Univ of Chic]. To understand where CRT comes from, you must know a little about Critical Theory. This was a plan devised by the Frankfurt School in the 1920... While most people will not recognize their names, many would recognize their handiwork. Magnus Hirschfeld was a leading homosexual rights activist in Germany in the 1920s. It was Hirschfeld who first coined the attack phrase “racist.” He wrote an entire book in 1930 describing how to use the word...

    Obama sycophant Soledad O'Brien got into a tussle with Joel Pollak of Breitbart.com and had her head handed to her as she tried desperately to dissuade viewers of the truth- that Barack Obama was heavily influenced by the radical Bell. In her conversation with Pollak she at first appeared not to know what Critical Race Theory actually was while at the same time she was sure Pollak was wrong. From somewhere she came up with a definition that happened to be curiously similar to the one found in Wikipedia. Soon after the Wikipedia page for CRT was changed repeatedly and...

    In 1961 a play titled "The Blacks : A Clown Show" by the French petty criminal and homosexual prostitute Jean Genet, was the avant garde sensation of New York... The play comes back to me now as do Genet's words, because in my recollection of that production and rereading of Genet's work half a century later it occurs to me that his play is a forerunner of Critical Race Theory, a racialist concept at total odds with American principles and ideals , a concept unfortunately at the very heart of our President and his administration. At its very core CRT...

    Newly surfaced footage shows a young woman who appears to be Michelle Obama, and several other students, staging a sit-in in the Harvard Law School dean’s office in 1988. According to J. Christian Adams of Pajamas Media, the video depicts the students — including the woman who appears to be Mrs. Obama — conducting a protest to “solve the minority faculty problem,” as one student puts it, by implementing race-based hiring practices. President Obama’s time at Harvard Law has received fresh scrutiny lately, including new attention on relationship with Derrick Bell, the first tenured black law professor at Harvard and...

    There is such a thing as honor. And when the honor of a great man is attacked, there must be a response. Professor Derrick Bell, who passed away last October, was a great man. His legacy to the legal profession, to civil rights law and thinking, to legal scholarship, to the hundreds of students he taught and the scores of black leaders, academics and activists he mentored, cannot be calculated. He refused to compromise with racism by studying it, resisting it and showing us how to build a life filled with joy, humor and integrity, while wrestling with our nation's...

    Yesterday I posted a blog about Obama’s favorite law professor, Derek Bell and Barack Obama’s connections to various questionable organizations and individuals.. In Brietbart has only scratched the surface- it’s bad I mentioned Obama’s connections-direct and indirect to the Black Muslim leader Louis Farrakhan, the Black Panthers and to former Weather Underground leader Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn. I just dropped by to see Tom Tillison over the Florida Political Press. Tom has a piece posted about a visit Barack Obama is going to make to Seminole College here in Florida on March 15, that happens to be...

    Breitbart.com ^ | 3/15/2012 | Charles C. Johnson
    The story of Cassandra Butts is an important example of how Critical Race Theory and its adherents continue to shape President Barack Obama's worldview and his administration. At Harvard Law School from 1988-1991, Butts was one of the student advocates of Professor Derrick Bell’s strike for "faculty diversity." She was also a fast friend of Obama’s, whose career she has helped to promote from the halls of the Harvard Law Review to the White House. Her role in the Obama White House is not a mystery. Rep. Harold Ford Jr. noted on MSNBC on January 22, 2009--shortly after Obama's inauguration--that...

    Many years ago, I learned of an episode in the life of a promising young black man that is relevant to things happening now. He had been educated at a good school, and went on to receive degrees at good colleges and universities. Then he went for a Ph.D. in mathematics at one of the leading departments in that field. When he encountered difficulties, his professors essentially wrote his doctoral thesis for him. No doubt they felt good about doing something to help a promising young black man, and perhaps took pride in doing so. But what about his pride?...

    This really takes the cake! It's one thing if you're a left-wing Democrat and you support Barack Obama, but it's quite another thing to replace the Stars and Stripes with Obama and Stripes. That's right... that's what local Democrats did in Florida. They replaced the stars on the U.S. flag with an image of Obama. What is happening to this country? As Fox News reports, "An American flag with President Obama's image in place of the stars flew over a Florida county's Democrat headquarters long enough to enrage local veterans who called the altered banner 'a disgrace.'"

    Ever since Breitbart.com released a video of then-Harvard Law school student Barack Obama introducing controversial Harvard Law professor Derrick Bell, one of the most stalwart defenders of Bell has been CNN “Starting Point” anchor Soledad O’Brien. Last Thursday, O’Brien had a somewhat contentious back-and-forth with Breitbart.com editor Joe Pollack, which she defended on her Monday broadcast. “Last week we had a lot of feedback on a debate we had about Critical Race Theory,” O’Brien said. “And it was kind of brought back into the spotlight, the academic theory that nobody was talking about, brought into the spotlight by Breitbart.com editor-in-chief...

    In partial fulfillment of Andrew Breitbart's promise to "vet" the President this time, the Breitbart.com team posted a video of President Barack Obama as a law student at Harvard. It also ran on Hannity tonight. The video shows the young Obama asking his fellow law students to "Open up your hearts and your minds to the words of Professor Derrick Bell." Professor Derrick Bell, the object of young Obama's adoration, was an associate of Reverend Jeremiah Wright and a committed radical. Bell was a proponent of Critical Race Theory, which views virtually all relationships through a lens of perceived race-based...

    The back-and-forth between CNN’s Soledad O’Brien and Breitbart.com Chief Editor Joel Pollak continued on this morning’s Starting Point, as O’Brien sought to dispel misinformation about the late Professor Derrick Bell and Critical Race Theory, which have been the subject of smears by the Big sites. After a tough interview with O’Brien last week, Pollak’s Big sites went on a vengeful tirade against the CNN anchor, posting a flurry of articles seeking to discredit her, and promoting their warped vision of Prof. Bell. Last week, Breitbart.com released one of the “bombshell” videos that the late Andrew Breitbart promised at this years...

    CNN’s Soledad O’Brien isn’t used to criticism. In the world of media elites, she’s a beloved figure and an award-winning news anchor. But last week, she revealed her true, decidedly non-neutral colors. And she’s not happy about the hoi polloi questioning her hallowed journalistic objectivity. On Thursday, O’Brien interviewed Joel Pollak, editor-in-chief of the late Andrew Breitbart’s online empire. Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com released a 1991 video of Barack Obama (then a 30-year-old law student) at a Harvard rally embracing radical racialist Derrick Bell and his push for more aggressive race-based hiring at Harvard. Bell is a proponent of critical race theory...
  • Wikipedia editor responds to ‘Critical Race Theory’ edit war

    A Wikipedia article devoted to Critical Race Theory, a controversial legal theory crafted to respond to the alleged role of “white supremacy” in American law, was placed on a temporary editing lockdown over the weekend after bloggers determined that CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien had relied on Wikipedia’s introductory definition of the theory — verbatim — during on an-air debate. A second lock was placed on the article Monday to protect it from politically biased editors who adjusted it following O’Brien’s gaffe. The flurry began after Breitbart.com editor Joel Pollak made a guest appearance on O’Brien’s show to explain a video...
