Professor Derrick Bell’s Star Pupil

Morgen Richmond, a blogger at Verum Serum, has discovered a 1992 University of Washington TV interview with Professor Derrick Bell—the lawyer, activist, teacher and Louis Farrakhan supporter who led the American civil rights movement whom Barack Obama embraced.

Richmond writes, “With his soft tone, and lighthearted demeanor, he comes across as, well, professorial, and not exactly a fire-breathing, radical racialist. But then Bill Ayers comes across this way as well. So forget the tone, forget the demeanor, and consider that what Bell is describing in this clip is nothing less than an overtly Marxist theory of racism. That white racism is not only permanent, but that it is a structural, ‘stabilizing’ feature of our society purposefully intended to insulate the (white) upper class from conflict and economic pressure from the lower classes.”

“Or in other words, to protect and empower the 1% at the expense of the 99%.”

“I’m not going to feign outrage or surprise that Obama would have embraced someone who believes this, but at the same time there is not a doubt in my mind that he would not have been elected if the public understood just how radical his associations were. People like Bill Ayers and Derrick Bell don’t just have a different perspective on America, or public policy preferences that are a bit out of the mainstream. They are Marxists whose life’s work was/is devoted to fundamentally transforming—destroying really—this country from within. And thanks to the complicity of our media, their star pupil is currently residing in the White House.”

    Really? When did BO's Wright Roots begin to show? The old Rev God Damn America Wright? No one seemed to care. BO severed the relationship with a wink and a nod and a "never heard that stuff before" excuse.
