    Kinda interesting:

    "Andrew Kaczynski had released “the mysterious Harvard/Obama/race video that the Breitbart folks have been talking about.”
    The video, which Kaczynski says was “licensed from a Boston television station,” shows a young Barack Obama leading a protest at Harvard Law School on behalf of Prof. Derrick Bell, a radical academic tied to Jeremiah Wright--about whom we will be releasing significant information in the coming hours. "

    From SHOCKING to "kinda interesting"? Bell did expound on race, yes. He advocated LITIGATION to change laws. Bizarre for a law professor, huh?
    ***************************************

    Soon afterwards, Bell took a position as an assistant counsel for the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF), crafting legal strategies at the forefront of the battle to undo racist laws and segregation in schools. At the LDF, he worked alongside other prominent civil rights attorneys such as Thurgood Marshall, Robert L. Carter and Constance Baker Motley. Bell was assigned to Mississippi, the cradle of the deep South, where racism was at its most virulent and entrenched. While working at the LDF, Bell supervised more than 300 school desegregation cases and spearheaded the fight of James Meredith to secure admission to the University of Mississippi over the protests of Governor Ross Barnett. [2]
    "I learned a lot about evasiveness, and how racists could use a system to forestall equality," Bell was quoted as saying in The Boston Globe ... "I also learned a lot riding those dusty roads and walking into those sullen hostile courts in Jackson, Mississippi. It just seems that unless something's pushed, unless you litigate, nothing happens."[3]

    Well I don't find it shocking at all. Obama is a pig.

    This is the key to the controversy with this Professor.

    At the time, Bell was demanding that the university hire African-Americans instead of Asians, Latinos or whites.

    Critics said Bell wanted to lower recruitment standards to increase the number of African-Americans on the staff.


    No Asians, Latinos or Whites.

    Interesting. I can't wait to find out more.

    I know Henry Louis Gates has no use for Continental or Island Blacks. Remember him?

    He argued that only American blacks were worthy. Interesting people that influenced Obama.

    Another tidbit that's coming out is this:

    “Bell’s scholarship was very controversial and Obama’s wholehearted endorsement of it is eyebrow-raising,” said Roger Clegg, president of the Center for Equal Opportunity. Part of Bell’s pitch, Clegg said, is that “America is an irredeemably racist country.”:eusa_whistle:

    Bell was “speaking the truth,” Obama said.


    Interesting that he slams America as being "irredeemably racist" but then turns around and doesn't want Latinos, Asians or Whites hired.

    And Obama backs him.

    Suweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!

    How is he tied to Wright? I don't see any proof. Sounds like a cheap shot. Breutbart from the grave? :doubt:
