    The Harvard Law professor who mentored President Obama and the first lady during their time in Cambridge has compared the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown to the 1968 assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Speaking with MSNBC’s Alex Wagner, Charles Ogletree also compared the police shooting of 18-year-old Brown to the 1955 killing of Emmett Till. “Looking at what’s happened, this is just like the assassination of Dr. King in 1968, when everybody was very upset trying to figure out what was going to happen,” he said. “It’s like the killing of Trayvon Martin two years ago. “This is...

    After a week of riots and looting in Ferguson, Missouri, Charles Ogletree, the Harvard Law professor who was President Barack Obama's mentor, predicted that this is just the beginning of more unrest. After police shot and killed Michael Brown last weekend, Ogletree said the problem is, "you have these white officers who don't live there, who aren't a part of the community, who don't know the community, and yet they're given all the power to make things happen." "We need to have a change in that sense right now," Ogletree said on Meet The Press. "And I'll tell you what,...

    President Barack Obama's mentor and Harvard Law professor Charles Ogletree said Darren Wilson, the officer who reportedly shot and killed Michael Brown, should be arrested. "I think the first thing that needs to happen [is] we need to arrest Officer Wilson," he said on Meet the Press. "He shot and killed a man, shot him multiple times. And he's walking free. No one knows anything about him, no one knows why he did it. We need to have that done, number one." Ogletree made his remarks while agreeing with substitute host Andrea Mitchell that nobody really has all of the...

    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...

    My own interest in the reparations movement started in the 1970’s when my teacher and mentor at Stanford, Dr. St. Clair Drake, arranged for me to attend the Sixth Pan-African Conference in Dar es Salem, Tanzania. These conferences were held to focus on efforts to end colonial rule in Africa and to promote economic and political development within the African nations. I traveled as part of a delegation of over two hundred African Americans, but the member of our delegation who had an enormous impact on me was Audrey Moore, affectionately known as “Queen Mother Moore.” Viewed by many as...

    The White House today launched a website at which the public can search through visitor records, Office of Government Ethics travel reports and Lobbying Disclosure Act data. The new Ethics.gov also includes Department of Justice Foreign Agents Registration Act data, Federal Election Commission individual contribution reports, Federal Election Commission candidate reports and Federal Election Commission committee reports. It’s quite user friendly. For example, putting Charles Ogletree into the search reveals that the Harvard professor who held onto the President Obama video now making the rounds has been to the White House 14 times in Obama’s term (15 visits are listed,...

    Via Dan Riehl and Ace, this almost too good to check. Go read Rebel Pundit’s post for an explanation, then skip to 2:00 below. (If you missed Ed’s post this morning, by all means watch the whole thing.) After sneering at Joel Pollak for supposedly mischaracterizing the discipline and then refusing to define it herself, she finally demonstrates her grasp of Critical Race Theory by uncorking a definition that’s curiously similar to … the opening of Wikipedia’s intro on CRT, replete with the noncolloquial use of “intersection” to describe an interdisciplinary study. Could be a coincidence — the definition she...

    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 –...

    When Barack Obama’s two faculty mentors at Harvard Law got in trouble for plagiarism, they were rescued by Dean Elena Kagan. In 1989, Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe hired first-year Harvard law student Barack Obama as his research assistant.  After Obama was elected president, Tribe would gush, "His stunning combination of analytical brilliance and personal charisma, openness and maturity, vision and pragmatism, was unmistakable from my very first encounter." Obama had one other prominent mentor among the Harvard faculty, Professor Charles Ogletree, an African American.  In the run-up to the election, Ogletree would enthuse, "I'm so excited about this candidacy...

Sorry folks, but the truth will set you free! Why else would Obama falsely accuse Sgt. James Crowley and other Cambridge Police officers of "racial profiling" and claim they "acted stupidly" – creating a national racial controversy? For months, I have said that Barack Obama was elected as a result of white fear (guilt) and black racism. Whites voted for him because of guilt and...

    JERUSALEM – The lawyer representing Henry Louis Gates Jr., the Harvard professor at the center of a national race controversy, was a mentor of both Barack and Michelle Obama and served on the president's black advisory council. Charles Ogletree Jr., himself a Harvard University professor, is closely linked to the Black Panthers and to radical black ideology. He is a key member of the reparations movement and once pursued the possibility of bringing a class action lawsuit to win reparations for descendants of African slaves. "I met Barack when he arrived at Harvard Law School in fall of 1988. He...

A reader suggested it would be good to post a transcript, and I'm putting both the old and new material in one new post to keep things simple. Also, don't miss the clip from Ogletree's speech in which he admits that the Obama campaign has hidden Rev.

    Now we have TWO prominent Obama supporters recently injecting race into the campaign. Each calls Obama biracial (not black or African-American). 1. A senior advisor to Obama (Harvard law prof. Charles Ogletree) said in an Oct. 25 speech at Harvard that white Americans are racist, and they can't disprove that by electing Obama, because he's biracial: http://proteinwisdom.com/?p=135792. A Democratic congressman (Jerrold Nadler) recently said that Obama likely felt to have a political career he HAD to join Jeremiah Wright's radical black church, because he's biracial (i.e., to prove he was "black enough"), and once Obama realized "the guy's a lunatic,"...

The expected heavy white vote for Obama doesn't disprove this thesis, Ogletree says, because Obama's not black; he's "biracial." So it looks like, according to Ogletree (and Obama?) that white America will have to do lots more for blacks after electing Obama to...

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - When it comes to its students, Harvard University policy shows little tolerance for plagiarism. Undergraduates found guilty of "misusing sources" will "likely" be required to withdraw from the college for at least two semesters. They will lose all coursework they have done that semester (unless it is virtually over), along with the money they have paid for it. They must also leave Cambridge. With such a policy for students, what is Harvard to do when two of its most prominent law professors, Charles J. Ogletree Jr. and Laurence H. Tribe, publicly acknowledge that they have unintentionally misused...
