  • 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...
  • What's the Matter with Soledad O'Brien?

    What's the Matter with Soledad O'Brien? 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...

    Well-funded private universities like Harvard have sought to attract more middle-class students by offering generous aid packages. This results in big discounts in tuition and fees.Is attending Harvard cheaper than going to a California State University campus? Yes, for many middle-class families, reports Matt Krupnick in a terrific story by the Bay Area News Group. How is that possible? Because of two trends. Well-funded private universities like Harvard have sought to attract more middle-class students by offering generous aid packages. This results in big discounts in tuition and fees. At the same time, taxpayer support to California's public university systems...

    One of the more common spins by the mainstream media about the now-famous Derrick Bell video is that the rally was for more diversity on the Harvard Law campus. This is wrong. In fact, Bell and Obama were demanding special treatment for Regina Austin, a radical black law professor with poor credentials—she lacked the usual Supreme Court clerkships or law-review appointments—necessary for the position. Bell and Obama demanded that Harvard violate its longstanding policy about not voting on tenure track positions to visiting professors.Don’t take my word for it. Take Derrick Bell’s. He granted that Austin lacked the proper credentials...

    Bias: We were wrong. The media elite did in fact vet this president, but they covered up what they found. And now that citizen journalists are digging it up, they're trying to rebury it. Exhibit A is the controversial video of Barack Obama praising and hugging radical Harvard law professor Derrick Bell. The media knew it existed four years ago and conspired with academia to hide it to get Obama elected. "We hid this during the 2008 campaign," confessed Harvard law professor Charles Ogletree. PBS had it then, but cut both the audio and the hug in a report on...

    The leader of the occupation in the video — Robert L. Wilkins of the Harvard Black Law Students Association — was nominated by President Obama on May 20, 2010 to be considered for judge of the U.S. District Court, District of Columbia. He is now a sitting judge in that position. (snip)Not mentioned in the press release: that Wilkins once led an illegal occupation of a law school building to demand the school hire based on skin color, a protest primarily focused on supporting the actions of radical bigot Derrick Bell.

    Michelle Malkin was invited on the Hannity Show tonight to discuss the Obama Harvard protest tapes that were released today by Breitbart.com. Michelle blasted leftie Juan Williams for playing down the significance of the tapes – tapes that show Barack Obama leading a protest at Harvard in defense of a radical academic tied to Rev. Jeremiah Wright. And, once again we learn that the only experience Barack Obama brought with him to the White House was his expertise in radical, anti-American, socialist doctrine.

    Big Hollywood ^ | 3/7/12 | Joel B. Pollak
    Derrick Bell, the man whose scholarship inspired Barack Obama, was the Jeremiah Wright of academia. And a Hollywood cult hero. Bell was one of the chief proponents of Critical Race Theory, a radical doctrine that holds that American legal institutions—including our civil rights laws—perpetuate white supremacy. Bell’s ideas were not only radical, but bizarre. After leaving Harvard (he resigned in 1992), he wrote a racialist, antisemitic fictional essay titled “The Space Traders,” which Ninth Circuit judge Alex Kozinski described in the New York Times with disgust: Imagine, if you will, that space aliens land in the United States and offer...

Over at the Breitbart sites, we are learning how Obama inserted himself into a fight to implement hiring on the basis of race at Harvard Law School. The Obama tapes also seem to show the other Obama – Michelle – occupying the Harvard Law School dean’s office. The occupiers were agitating for the race-based hiring of Harvard law professors.The racialist fight at Harvard Law from 1988 to 1991 swirls around Professor Derrick...

    Below is footage of Barack Obama praising and hugging Professor Derrick Bell. It was spliced and diced by the media to avoid showing just how close Obama was to Bell. More than that, a close associate of the Obama campaign, Harvard Law School’s Professor Charles Ogletree, admitted on our exclusive tape, “We hid this throughout the 2008 campaign. I don’t care if they find it now.” Well, we found it. And it is damaging, because Barack Obama was as close or closer to Derrick Bell than he ever was to Jeremiah Wright. Obama didn’t merely sit in the pews –...

    1 January. The first surprise was not their arrival. The radio messages had begun weeks before, announcing that one thousand ships from a star far out in space would land on 1 January 2000, in harbors along the Atlantic coast from Cape Cod to North Carolina. Well before dawn on that day, millions of people across North America had wakened early to witness the moment the ships entered Earth's atmosphere. However expected, to the watchers, children of the electronic age, the spaceships' approach was as awesome as had been that earlier one of three ships, one October over five hundred...

    The web is abuzz today about video of a speech Barack Obama gave in 1990 (some reports have incorrectly identified the speech as occurring in 1991) at Harvard Law School defending the actions of Professor Derrick Bell. Bell, the law school’s first tenured black professor, had protested Harvard’s failure to offer tenure to women of color as law school professors. Online publisher Andrew Brietbart, who died last week, had said he possessed the speech and hinted that he would release it, arguing that it provided evidence that Obama has long held radical political beliefs. Today, the website BuzzFeed published a...

    Andrew Kaczynski of Buzzfeed discovered this little gem of a video, in which then-law student Barack Obama spoke at a protest in favor of Harvard Law Professor Derrick Bell. Kaczynski explains what the protest was all about. Bell was the first black tenured professor at the school, and a pioneer of "critical race theory," which insisted, controversially, on reading issues of race and power into legal scholarship. His protest that spring was occasioned by Harvard's denial of tenure to a black woman professor, Regina Austin, at a time when only three of the law school's professors were black and only...

    Sen. Obama, his campaign threatened by Rev. Wright’s sermons – or sermon snippets – played over and over again, has spoken out about racial difference and anger and the need to get beyond it in order to address effectively the serious problems that face us all. But like the politicians we discussed who avoid the tough issues, Obama has chosen to condemn rather than acknowledge the truth in Rev. Wright’s sermons. He does so while appropriately refusing to end his relationship with Wright who brought him to Christianity.

    In this video, not previously available online but licensed by BuzzFeed from a Boston television station, the future president speaks at a 1991 campus protest organized to demand tenure for minority and female law professors. It was perhaps Barack Obama's most intense immersion in the charged campus racial politics of the late 1980s and early 1990s: As President of the Harvard Law Review in the spring of his final year there, 1991, he aligned himself with Professor Derrick Bell's dramatic protest for diversity on the faculty of Harvard Law School. Bell was the first black tenured professor at the school,...

    EVEN IN THE DAKOTA, the storied apartment building on New York’s Upper West Side, home to such cultural icons as Yoko Ono and Lauren Bacall, Buddy Fletcher stood out. African American, fantastically accomplished, and wealthy, Fletcher had grown up in modest circumstances, gone to Harvard, and graduated as “first marshal” of his class in 1987. From there he hit Wall Street, earned millions before he turned 25, and started his own firm, Fletcher Asset Management. By the time he was 30, the company was operating as a hedge fund and boasting of triple-digit returns. Fletcher made multimillion-dollar donations to Harvard,...

    Anti-Israel activists who have gathered this weekend at Harvard University's "One State Conference" were told yesterday that the Jewish people do not exist. Prof. Susan M. Akram of Boston University's School of Law told the gathering that there is no legal basis for Jewish self-determination--at all: Israel’s claim of a state, on the basis of exclusive and discriminatory rights to Jews [sic], has never been juridically recognized. In other words, the concept of the Jewish people as a national entity with extraterritorial claims has never been recognized under international law. Similar denials of the Jewish people's existence and rights enabled...
