The 2014 '30 Under 30'

Congrats to this year's 30 -- check out the full list here!

Who is Professor Derrick Bell?

A recent video released by Big Government reveals then Harvard Law School professor Barack Obama declaring before a crowd of protesters, “Open up your hearts and your minds to the words of professor Derrick Bell.”

So what are the words of Derrick Bell? What did this man believe that so influenced President Obama?

It can be summed up with Derrick Bell’s life motto: “I live to harass white people.”

The preface at the beginning of his book, Faces At The Bottom Of the Well, further explains his beliefs about race and society.

“Even the poorest whites, those who must live their lives only a few levels above, gain their self-esteem gazing down on us. Surely, they must know that their deliverance depends on letting down their ropes. Only by working together is escape possible. Over time, many reach out, but most simply watch, mesmerized into maintaining their unspoken commitment to keeping us where we are, at whatever cost to them or to us.”

The book is riddled with racially motivated themes, ranging from Clarence Thomas to Louis Farrakahn. Bell says, “That appointment [of Clarence Thomas] was a mockery of Justice Thurgood Marshall’s service to blacks.”

Bell makes clear in no uncertain terms he also admires Farrakhan “He is perhaps the best living example of a black man ready, willing and able to tell it like it is” regarding racism.

This is the same Farrakhan who said “Hitler was a very great man” and other high antisemitic comments.

When urged by Randall Kennedy to repudiate Farrakhan’s overt racism Bell stated that “the cause of diversity is not served by someone who looks black and thinks white.”

Racism, Bell said to Bonnie Smothers in an interview for Booklist in 1998, “serves to connect whites across a great divide of wealth and status and income opportunity.”

Bell wrote in a piece in Human Rights in 2009 that “a democracy was more of a hindrance than a help in the lives of minority people,” showing his lack of faith in the United States government.

Bell was the father “Racial Realism” which posits that whites conspire to oppress blacks and racism in America is “integral, permanent and indestructible.” We can see how this view so thoroughly drove many of Bell’s controversial statements and actions.

In addition to the racialism Derrick Bell has so brazenly stood for, his actions also reveal where his values are. Of particular importance: He was on the legal team to provide research for Angela Davis, a former Communist Party vice presidential candidate, member of the Black Panther Party and suspect involved with the Soledad brothers abduction and murder of a South Carolina judge.

Two things must not be forgotten in all of this: One is that President Obama revered this man and viewed him as a mentor. And two: President Obama’s other mentor, Charles Ogletree, set out to actively conceal the video the late Andrew Breitbart was eventually able to procure.

Why did Ogletree actively hide the connection between Bell and President Obama? Is there even more incriminating information that has not reached the surface? The people over at Big Government say there is more to come.

But an even greater question remains. Will the mainstream media finally do its job and allow the American people to consider the questionable background of President Barack Obama? We are already seeing it answered by either their lack of coverage or their mockery of the video, “A hug?! That’s it?”

I have a feeling they’ll be made to look the fool by Andrew Breitbart and his team…again.

  1. So that’s what he means when he says the rich need to pay their fair share, Racism will NEVER be erased from our great country until everyone quits being PC and calling people _-American and call them “Americans”.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

  2. [...] Derrick Bell was a tenured professor at Harvard and the mind behind the “Critical Race Theory,” which hypothesized that discrimination against minorities is inherent in our legal system.  Obama called Bell the “Rosa Parks of legal education,” but further review shows this radical of academia as unhinged.

    My official opinion on this is that being the 1st black tenured professor at a major university will inevitably write about racism & politics and how the system had been at that point a system that appeared stiff and unbreakable. If you were in his shoes what do you think you’d write about? How everything looks like its gonna work out great bc black americans were finally getting a break? If you were a young constitutional law major with aspirations and witnessed the 1st black professor at your school speak, would you not befriend him and possibly see him as a mentor?
    Lastly, if you were judged for every comment, tweet, blog post or action of your buddies would you find it to be a fair judgment of your character? Wouldn’t you rather you’d be judged by your deeds?
    If you guys focused on the real scary stuff like his indefinite detention orders or his connection to Monsanto and their gene & farm policies, I think we’d agree that Obama has made some scary choices but nothing about the Bell connection shakes me up one bit. Especially considering you didnt think there was a conflict of interest with Dick Cheney’s connection to Haliburton; literally a “Daddy War-bucks” as Vice president.

    1. Bo34 says:

      If it was just once maybe twice, it could be considered an unfair judgment, but the fact is, is that it has been over and over and over again, and Bell has made and staked his entire career on it. Read his books, clearly you will see his comments through out are at the core of racism its self, portraying himself as a racist, it is all in his words throughout, which by natural law leads to his actions. Besides anybody that completely says and agrees that Hitler was a great man, needs to go back and look at the correct history, cause if that is what they believe then all that they care about is them selves, and has nothing but hatred in their hearts, and is without a doubt a racist. It should at the least make you wonder about the true feelings of Obama, plus the fact that they tried to down play the connection with Saul Alinsky. If this does not move you into questioning the motives of this president and his admin. then I would say you should look into history and the comments that people like Saul Alinsky, and Hitler among others have said, and what, and how it lead to there actions, then maybe you will see how this does effect how you should at the least question the relationship of Bell and Obama, and how it may impact his motives and actions.

      I ctually have doubt that Obama did earn his Constitutional Law Degree, sure it might have been given to him, but did he actually complete his studies and pass all of his tests in order to actually earn his degree in Constitutional Law. I know of no other attorney that was foced by a State (Illinois Bar) (or be prosecuted) to turn in their law license besides Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama. I also know of no other Practicing Attorney who has never presented a single case to a single court in his/her State, nor do I know of any other Attorney who has never had a single client, and present an argemnt for their client in a Court of Law. That is why I have doubts as to the authencity of Barack Obama’s Constitutional Law Professor or Attorney Status.
      Can anybody point out any other attorney that has never brought a single case for their client into a court of law, what else would be the point of going to a prestigious Law School unless you wanted to become a lawyer and practice law. Unless of course he just wanted to get the Law Degree in order to run for public office and a law Degree from Harvard would look goo on his reseme.Was the Law Degree purchased for him . I have read where a College was paid by a Saudi Arabian Prince to provide Obama with all of the documentation and papers he needed. Could his Law Degree be another one of these documents?
      More questions the so-called MSM never vetted about Obama.
