Obama letter to Derrick Bell

Barack Obama’s association with radical Critical Race Theory professor Derrick Bell did not end after Harvard Law School -- and certainly not at the April 24, 1990 rally at which Obama embraced Bell, literally and figuratively. Breitbart News has discovered a letter sent by Obama to Bell in February 1995 in which Obama asks Bell to review -- and to blurb -- an early version of Obama’s autobiography, then entitled Dreams of My Father.

The letter is preserved in the archives of New York University, to which Bell donated his papers. The archives -- which are open to the public -- include Bell’s papers from decades of research, writing, teaching, and speaking. The website for the archives lists some of Bell’s notable correspondents, but omits Obama. Though the archives do not permit full publication without permission of the copyright holder, some excerpts can be provided.

The letter, dated February 3, 1995, is on a letterhead from Davis, Miner, Barnhill and Galland, the civil rights law firm that hired Obama. Over two pages, Obama brings Bell up to date on his career in Chicago, mentions that he is using Bell’s textbook with his own students, and asks him for help in reviewing, and promoting, Dreams:

As for me, I’m keeping busy in Chicago. I’m currently working at Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland here in Chicago, a small firm specializing in employment discrimination and voting rights/civil rights cases. I’m also teaching a seminar on race and the law at the University of Chicago law school  --  your casebook has been an invaluable reference guide for that.
  
The main reason I’m writing to you, though, has to do with a book that I’ve been writing, on again, off again, for the past two years. Originally, the book (called Dreams of My Father) was going to be a series of essays on issues of race and class, but as it has evolved it’s become a memoir of my family and my experiences as an organizer in Chicago...

Your name came to mind as somebody whose insight I’ve always appreciated, so I’ve enclosed an advanced reader’s edition of the book. If you have time to read it and think it’s worth of a plug, I’d be thrilled...

If you own a copy of Dreams from My Father, you will not find a blurb from Bell on the back cover. That is because when Obama ascended to the national stage in 2004, and the book was reprinted, the publishers chose not to include it. But Bell did provide a blurb for the book’s first edition, which is a rare collectible today. The blurb reads:

Dreams from My Father is a beautifully written chronicle of a gifted young man marked and molded by a family whose love for him was as deep as its diversity was daunting. We hear in Barack Obama’s soaring book that survival demands resilience in the face of frustrated expectations, and that one’s committed opposition to the destructive tides of America’s obsession with color cultivates a vision of life that is nourished by struggle.

- Derrick Bell, author of Faces at the Bottom of the Well

By the time Obama reached out to him, Bell’s radicalism was well and widely known. He had just blurbed Louis Farrakhan’s book on black self-reliance, A Torchlight for America, and praised the Nation of Islam’s community education programs.

Clearly, Obama’s link to Bell was more than just a "hug," but part of a sustained effort to align himself with the radical left -- and to be seen by others as a legitimate radical -- in the early stages of his public life.

Racial quota fallout

Thomas Sowell says many years ago, I learned of an episode in the life of a promising young black man that is relevant to things happening now. He had been educated at a good school, and went on to receive degrees at good colleges and universities. Then he went for a Ph.D. in mathematics at one of the leading departments in that field.

When he encountered difficulties, his professors essentially wrote his doctoral thesis for him. No doubt they felt good about doing something to help a promising young black man, and perhaps took pride in doing so. But what about his pride?

This young man ended up joining an extremist group that hated white people.

Would it have been worse if he had not gotten a Ph.D. in math? Probably 99 percent of the people in this country, regardless of race, could not get a Ph.D. in math -- and yet they can still live happy and fulfilling lives.

What recalled this episode from long ago was the current flurry of interest in a video of a young Barack Obama at the Harvard law school praising Derrick Bell, a black professor there, whose writings on "critical race theory" promoted an extremist hostility to white people.

Derrick Bell was for years a civil rights lawyer, but not an academic legal scholar of the sort who gets appointed as a full professor at one of the leading law schools. Yet he became a visiting professor at the Stanford law school and was a full professor at the Harvard law school.

It was transparently obvious in both cases that his appointment was because he was black, not because he had the qualifications that got other people appointed to these faculties. At Stanford, his students complained that his course on constitutional law was not up to the standards of the other courses they were taking.

Stanford at that time had one of the leading scholars in constitutional law, Professor Gerald Gunther -- and Derrick Bell was no Gerald Gunther. A hastily created program of study of constitutional law was then used to teach that subject to students who were not getting what they needed in Professor Bell's course.

When this clever finessing of the problem came to light, the administration apologized -- to Derrick Bell for the embarrassment this caused him.

They should have apologized to the law students for short-changing them with a professor who was not up to the job -- and to those who donated money to the university to advance the cause of education, not to allow administrators to play racial quota politics on campus.

As a full professor at the Harvard law school, Derrick Bell was also surrounded by colleagues who were out of his league as academic scholars. What were his options at this point?

If he played it straight, he could not expect to command the respect of either faculty or students at the Harvard law school -- or, more important, his own self-respect. Bell himself admitted that he did not have the scholarly credentials that most full professors at the Harvard law school have.

There were no doubt other law schools where he would have been a respected colleague, but these were not Stanford or Harvard. Yet it is worth remembering that millions of people have led happy and fulfilling lives without ever being at Harvard or Stanford.

Derrick Bell's options were to be a nobody, living in the shadow of more accomplished legal scholars -- or to go off on some wild tangent of his own, and appeal to a radical racial constituency on campus and beyond.

His writings showed clearly that the latter was the path he chose. His previous writings had been those of a sensible man saying sensible things about civil rights issues that he understood from his years of experience as an attorney. But now he wrote all sorts of incoherent speculations and pronouncements, the main drift of which was that white people were the cause of black people's problems.

Bell even said that he took it as his mission to say things to annoy white people. Perhaps he thought that was better than being insignificant in his academic setting. But it was in fact far worse, because the real damage was to impressionable young blacks who took him seriously, including one who went on to become President of the United States.

Face it, he hates you

 

Barack Obama 1990 Interview : Harvard student tackles racism at it's core

Gateway Pundit has the key excerpt:

“There’s certainly racism here. There are certain burdens that are placed, more emotionally at this point than concretely,” Obama said.

“Professors may treat black students differently, sometimes by being, sort of, more dismissive, sometimes by being more, sort of, careful because they think, you know, they think that somehow we can’t cope in the classroom,” he said.

Obama sees the inner cities as the front lines of racism.

“It’s critical at this stage for people who want to see genuine change to focus locally. And it is crucial that we figure out how to rebuild the core of leadership and institutions in these communities,” he said.

For five years before law school, Obama took on that task in Chicago. As the director of a program that tried to bring South Side churches, unions and block associations together on projects, Obama was not trying to solve local problems, he said. Instead he sought to construct something more lasting — a forum for the community, “I’m interested in organizations, not movements, because movements dissipate and organizations don’t,” Obama said.

America suffered when the movements of the 1960s dissipated, he said. Those movements succeeded in raising doubts about harmful traditions of sexism and racism, but failed to offer a viable alternative.

“Hopefully, more and more people will begin to feel their story is somehow part of this larger story of how we’re going to reshape America in a way that is less mean-spirited and more generous,” Obama said.

The liberal mind at work

"I think we learned a few things today, like Obama has been Israel's biggest supporter, and Critical Race Theory isn't racist."

Oh, lordie!

And Obama graduated college in 1982 -- this was Harvard Law School, he was President of ther Harvard Law Review, and he was a thirty years old -- that "he was just a kid" crap won't fly.

Breitbart.com: Wikipedia Freezes Critical Race Theory Entry After Soledad Implosion

The Daily Caller reports that Wikipedia has frozen its entry on Critical Race Theory, reverting to the version of the page that existed before her on-air implosion in debate with Breitbart.com's Joel Pollak.

At the time, O'Brien--evidently citing the first line of the Wikipedia entry--claimed that Critical Race Theory had nothing to do with white supremacy. However, the same entry she relied upon--or which producers provided via her earpiece--mentions white supremacy twice.

The Daily Caller quotes a senior Wikipedia editor as saying that the entry is being frozen for a short time because of attempts to cover for O'Brien--and competing attempts to uncover the cover-up: "Given the flurry of reverts by and of anons yesterday I’m semi-protecting the article for a week."

As for O'Brien, she has yet to correct the record, and attacked Pollak for an entire segment in her Monday show, leading even sympathetic media critics to mock her attempted "do-over." She has asked angry viewers to "stop tweeting" her about the subject.

Derrick Bell’s love for New Black Panther Party founder, and White House Counsel

J. Christian Adams says Harvard Law Professor Derrick Bell praised the anti-Semitic founder of the New Black Panther Party. Another strong supporter of Bell was eventually Obama White House counsel Cassandra Butts, the White House lawyer when the New Black Panther voter intimidation case was dismissed.

The story of Derrick Bell praising the venomous anti-Semite Khalid Muhammad, former head of the New Black Panther Party is above, and connects Derrick Bell to Khalid Muhammad and the New Black Panther Party. But White House counsel Cassandra Butts was also involved in the now-famous Harvard Law School rally for Bell. Butts helped organize the rally supporting Bell and escorted him to be introduced.
 
Butts, nearly 20 years later, may have played a role in the dismissal of the New Black Panther voter intimidation case according to multiple reports.

As a member of Holder's DoJ team that brought the case against the New Black Panther Party, it staggers the imagination that Barack Obama’s beloved law professor Derrick Bell had anything positive to say about this radical racist anti-Semite. This is simply disheartening. You would think “esteemed” Harvard Law professors wouldn’t say nice things about a man who called for the murder of white women and children:

We kill the women. We kill the children. We kill the babies. We kill the blind. We kill the crippled. We kill the crazies. We kill ‘em all. We kill the faggots. We kill the lesbians. We kill them all.

Bell’s view of Khalid Muhammad? “We should really appreciate the Louis Farrakhans and the Khalid Muhammads while we’ve got them.”

We are beginning to see why the Left went into warp drive to tell us Derrick Bell wasn’t important.

If we’ve learned anything in the last week, we learned there are some very strange social and legal circles from the far fringes, and unfortunately, the far fringes are now in power.

Now consider the strange case of Cassandra Butts (left of Bell in photo below):

 

 

In the video where Obama introduces Bell is Butts, escorting Bell to the rally. Butts is another possible player in the New Black Panther voter intimidation dismissal. Butts was counsel to the NAACP, but Deputy White House Counsel when the New Black Panther case was dismissed. Hans von Spakovsky, PJ Media contributor, has this 2011 piece possibly placing Butts in the center of the New Black Panther dismissal.

While a student, Butts praised Bell to the Pittsburgh Press:

She calls [Bell's departure from Harvard Law] “a big loss for the law school. He is very special and we need him there. . . But we also need what he is asking for.”

The Washington Times also has this series detailing key dates in the New Black Panther dismissal. Again, Butts is at the center of meetings in the White House with key DOJ officials on key dates.

Whether Butts played any role in dismissing the New Black Panther case from her perch in the White House is still unknown. We do know that Derrick Bell had kind words to say about one of the most vile racists on the American scene in the last 20 years. We also know that Cassandra Butts was, and remained, one of Derrick Bell’s biggest fans. You can’t help but wonder what other nasty surprises will be found under rocks turned over by the new media in the next few months.

Derrick Bell - Rev. Jeremiah Wright - Obama

Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama's incendiary Chicago pastor, admired radical Harvard Law School professor Derrick Bell, inviting him to speak at Trinity United Church of Christ and referring to him from the pulpit.

In one sermon, which Wright published in 1995 in a collection entitled Africans Who Shaped Our Faith: A Study of 10 Biblical Personalities, Wright referred specifically to Bell's protest against Harvard--the same protest that Obama supported in a video released by Breitbart.com last week.

The sermon repeats the main doctrine of Bell's Critical Race Theory--that the United States was founded on racism, and that America remains irredeemably racist. Wright also attacked "Jewish lawyers," comparing the Jews of Jesus's time to "Klansmen" and describing Jesus as a racial provocateur:

Jesus is a perfect model for the best type of faith. Jesus had a faith that did not avoid the realities of race. Modern reasoning tries to avoid the issue of race and pretend that race doesn't really matter.

That is a lie. Race does matter. Race is a reality that one cannot ignore. America was founded on racism. America lives and breathers racism. In this country, racism is as natural as motherhood, apple pie and the fourth of July....

What this country is is about racism from day one. The moment you take your first breath as a black person in this country, you have four strikes against you. You cannot ignore race.

Consider the case of Derrick Bell. Some people would rather fire an "uppity" Black lawyer like him than hire one woman of color. If you don't believe me, send for the transcript from Phil Donahue. Race matters in this country. There is no reason to pretend it doesn't. It doesn't make sense to bury one's head in the sand. Some of us want a Holy Ghost that is blind and dumb, one that will give us tongues but will not give us truth.

Some of us want to run past this issue of race and pretend that race does not really matter. However, Jesus had a faith that did not avoid the reality of race. He kept bringing up the Samaritan issue, because race does matter. Every time Jesus said the word "Samaritan," while talking to Jewish lawyers, it was just like saying the word "nigger" to some Klansmen in America.

In 2008, Obama claimed that he had never heard Wright use anti-American or racist rhetoric from the pulpit. Yet this radical, antisemitic sermon--among others--was in print, and likely available from the church, while Obama sat in the pews. He could not have missed it, nor pretended not to know about Wright's views.

Wright referred specifically to an appearance by Bell on the Phil Donahue show that Breitbart.com has recovered on video (below). In the episode, Bell refers to his departure from Harvard and argues that the civil rights movement made racial inequality worse in some respects.

Derrick Bell describes Marxist foundation of Critical Race Theory

This sweet-talkin' guy is a lunatic and Barack Obama included his racist philosophy in his curriculum at the University of Chicago.
 

What does that tell you about Barack Obama?

 

Here is Obama's Constitutional Law III, 1996 Final Examination.  His examination review is here.   The exam questions deal with homosexual and race issues, which one would expect to be the extent of Obama’s interest in "constitutional" law.

The Critical Race Theory of Bell and Obama

Kyle Rogers says More information has emerged that Obama not only supported Critical Race Theory, but he assigned books on it as a lecturer at the University of Chicago School of Law.

To understand where CRT comes from, you must know a little about Critical Theory. This was a plan devised by the Frankfurt School in the 1920s. The Frankfurt School was founded in Frankfurt Germany by Marxist academics. Some of the famous members include notable Marxist leaders like Theodore Adorno, Herbert Marcuse, Magnus Hirschfeld, and Max Horkheimer.

While most people will not recognize their names, many would recognize their handiwork. Magnus Hirschfeld was a leading homosexual rights activist in Germany in the 1920s. It was Hirschfeld who first coined the attack phrase “racist.” He wrote an entire book in 1930 describing how to use the word “racist” to browbeat political opponents into silence.

The members of the Frankfurt School attempted to explain why the proletariat in Europe had not rushed to join the Communists during WWI. They decided that in order for the proletariat to better understand the need for Communism, the bonds of patriotism, religion, and family must be broken. Critical Theory is the theory that patriotism, nationalism, religion, and the traditional family must be held up to public criticism and ridicule. Only then would the proletariat embrace Communism in Europe and the United States.

The members of the Frankfurt school fled Germany in 1930 when a rival group of socialists began gaining power. Many of them regrouped in New York City, where they began applying Critical Theory in the United States. Many of the early non-black leaders of the NAACP were students of Critical Theory.

Derrick Bell, the first tenured black law professor at the Harvard School of Law, was a student of Critical Theory. In fact Bell devised his own theory called Critical Race Theory. Bell claimed that whites will perpetually oppress black people.

Critical Race Theory:

  • “Whiteness” is an illegitimate social construct to oppress other people.

  • “Blackness” is a legitimate social construct to resist oppression.

  • Black failures are caused by white oppression.

  • Blacks will continue to fail in life for the foreseeable future and it will be the fault of whites.

  • The US Constitution does not have the capacity to keep whites from oppressing blacks.

  • Only a totalitarian Marxist government can correct white oppresion AND/OR

  • Whites must cease to exist as an identifiable group.

Bell said that he “lives to harass white people.” Bell was a major supporter of Louis Farrakhan. Jeremiah Wright, the man Obama describes as his “mentor,” is also a major Farrakhan backer, as is Michelle Obama.

Recent video has surfaced of Barack Obama, as a student at Harvard, praising Derrick Bell. Then he engages in a long embrace with Bell. However there is a lot more to the story. While lecturing at the University of Chicago School of Law, Barack Obama assigned works by Derrick Bell to his class. This included the incendiary “Faces at the Bottom of the Well: The Permanence of Racism.”The introduction to the book states, “African Americans must confront and conquer the otherwise deadening reality of our permanent subordinate status.”

Critical Race Theory has become mainstream in the Black Power community. Recently, NAACP activist Lewis Diuguid wrote a very incendiary column in the Las Vegas Sun. He characterizes blacks and Latinos are failures and says they will continue to be failures for the foreseeable future. He says that when whites become a minority in 2042, blacks and Latinos will continue to fail and wreck the United States. This he says, will be solely the fault of white people.

Critical Race Theory does not end there. It has inspired the most genocidal racial hatred in the nation. Many adherents of Critical Race Theory make the Ku Klux Klan look like the Mary Poppins of racial hatred. Obama has continued to flirt with the most extreme elements even while president of the United States.

Take for example Kamau Kambon, Ph.D. He is a former professor of African-American studies and the University of North Carolina and the owner of “Blacknificent Books.” He characterizes the world as a “global plantation” and says that all black people around the world are oppressed by whites. In 2006, he was speaking at a forum that was being broadcast live on C-Span. He stated “We have to exterminate white people off the face of the planet to solve this problem.” Rather than receiving any condemnation from the all black audience, many people applauded him.

This type of genocidal hatred is now permeating black race-based organizations. Deceased activist Khallid Muhammed was the former Nation of Islam Youth Minister leader of the New Black Panther Party[NBPP]. The NBPP openly calls for worldwide racial holy war, claiming that Allah will raise a black army to exterminate all white people. Khallid is famous for his “Kill the White Man” speech delivered to black audiences all over the nation.

Instead of being condemned by other black leaders, he was supported. Al Sharpton maintained close ties to Muhammed, and co-sponsored a Harlem rally with him, even as his rhetoric got more and more violent. US Rep. Keith Ellison was also a major supporter of Muhammed. When Muhammed died in 2001 of a brain hemorrhaged, Al Sharpton rushed to be at his side. Sharpton donated $10,000 to his family to pay for Muhammed's funeral.

The current leader of the NBPP is Malik Zulu Shabazz. In 2007 Obama was pictured exiting a building in Selma, Alabama side by side with Shabazz and NBPP members in paramilitary gear. Shabazz and other NBPP members then participated in a march with Obama.

During the 2008 election, uniformed members of the NBPP committed what many considered a major act of voter intimidation in Philadelphia. Eric Holder refused to prosecute them. Since taking office Obama has invited the Shabazz to be his guest in the White House!

It appears Obama has maintained his belief in the genocidal Critical Race Theory of Derrick Bell and taken it all the way to the White House.
 

Two observations:

 

1.  The people crying "racist" the loudest are, in fact, the real racists.

 

2.  The Frankfurt School was the incubator of everything wrong with America.

While reading #31, “Despite undeniable progress for many, no African Americans are insulated from incidents of racial discrimination. Our careers, even our lives, are threatened because of our color.”

 Michelle Obama's words popped into my head when she said something to the effect of Barrack could be shot or killed just going to the store because he's black.  It's just how they think.  I know places where the opposite would be more true.

Barack Obama to Khalid Muhammad: Two degrees of separation
 
John Hinderaker says John Podhoretz and Patterico highlight a close connection between Barack Obama and Khalid Muhammad.  Obama, as we know, was a disciple of Derrick Bell; in the video that Breitbart.com released a few days ago, he urged his listeners to open their hearts and minds to Bell’s teachings.  So, what were Bell’s teachings?
 
Bell was a fervent admirer of Louis Farrakhan and Khalid Muhammad of the Nation of Islam.  Podhoretz quotes a 1994 interview in which Bell said, "We should really appreciate the Louis Farrakhans and the Khalid Muhammads while we’ve got them."  Our readers are well aware of the repellent Farrakhan, but who was Khalid Muhammad?  Patterico gives us Muhammad’s "Kill the Cracker" speech, in which Muhammad, whom Derrick Bell so admired, advocated genocide:

Muhammad gave his "kill them all" speech in 1993, and was famous for it in the circles in which Derrick Bell moved when Bell said, in 1994, that "we should really appreciate” Khalid Muhammad. [UPDATE: This YouTube video is from a reprise, circa 1996, of Muhammad's 1993 speech; you can see the 1993 speech, where Muhammad first said, "We kill the women. We kill the children. We kill the babies. We kill the blind. We kill the crippled. We kill the [imitates a crazy person]. We kill ‘em all. We kill the faggots.  We kill the lesbians. We kill them all." at the Patterico link.]

This isn't all.  Continue reading here . . .
 

And don't overlook the reaction of the audience to this racist lunatic, who isn't the only one holding these genocidal views.

Some quotes from Prof. Derrick Bell

DrJohn provides us with some Bell’s book “Faces at the Bottom of the Well”

“Despite undeniable progress for many, no African Americans are insulated from incidents of racial discrimination. Our careers, even our lives, are threatened because of our color.”
 
“[T]he racism that made slavery feasible is far from dead … and the civil rights gains, so hard won, are being steadily eroded.”
 
“[F]ew whites are ready to actively promote civil rights for blacks.”
   
“[D]iscrimination in the workplace is as vicious (if less obvious) than it was when employers posted signs ‘no negras need apply.’”
 
“We rise and fall less as a result of our efforts than in response to the needs of a white society that condemns all blacks to quasi citizenship as surely as it segregated our parents.”
 
“Slavery is, as an example of what white America has done, a constant reminder of what white America might do.”
 
“Black people will never gain full equality in this country. … African Americans must confront and conquer the otherwise deadening reality of our permanent subordinate status.”
 
“Tolerated in good times, despised when things go wrong, as a people we [blacks] are scapegoated and sacrificed as distraction or catalyst for compromise to facilitate resolution of political differences or relieve economic adversity.”

From Renew the Legacy of John Brown:

“If the task of the nineteenth century was to overthrow slavery, and the task of the twentieth century was to end legal segregation, the key to solving this country’s problems in the twenty-first century is to abolish the white race as a social category – in other words, eradicate white supremacy entirely.”

Derrick Bell was part of a journal called “Race Traitor.”

At the Race Traitor site, at the top of the page it says

RACE TRAITOR -- treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity

Under “What We Believe” it reads:

“The key to solving the social problems of our age is to abolish the white race”

and at the site one can also find this nugget:

"Abolish the White Race -- By Any Means Necessary"

This is what Barack Obama implored us to open our hearts and minds to.

The vetting: Obama's Supreme Court and Critical Race Theory

John Sexton says Breitbart.com Editor-in-Chief Joel Pollak appeared on CNN to discuss the story of Derrick Bell and Barack Obama with host Soledad O'Brien. When Joel tried to explain the meaning of Derrick Bell's Critical Race Theory (CRT), Soledad interjected that his entire description of was "a complete misreading." (You can view the full exchange at #28, above.)
 
Joel responded by challenging Soledad to explain, in her own words, what CRT was. There was a delay, and then she offered an answer which was remarkably similar to the first line of the Wikipedia entry for CRT.
 
O'Brien said: "Critical race theory looks into the intersection of race and politics and the law."
 
Wikipedia reads: "Critical Race Theory (CRT) is an academic discipline focused upon the intersection of race, law and power."
 
Either anodyne description of CRT is about as helpful as describing the sinking of the Titanic as the intersection of a ship, the ocean, and an iceberg. It's not that it's false exactly, but it does leave out nearly all of the important detail.

Fortunately, we have another description of Critical Race Theory from an unimpeachable source: Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan.
 
In 1993, Kagan was asked to present a lecture on CRT. Her notes for that class, dated October 25, 1993, became part of the record during her confirmation hearings in 2010--but the Senate failed to press her on her support for a theory that, by her own admission, was race-obsessed and radical.

Kagan's lecture notes are instructive. After saying that CRT had expanded to the point of being somewhat nebulous, Kagan offered two descriptions. This first one was in summary form (page 153 of this pdf):

Still some things can be said to define and describe the movement as a whole. Most generally, what critical race theorists ask about is how legal doctrine -- legal doctrine of all sorts, ranging from constitutional law to labor law, from criminal procedure to civil procedure -- reflects and perpetuates racial subordination in America. What most critical race theorists believe is that law, in a variety of ways, works to maintain the subordination of members of minority groups. And what most critical race theorists believe is that the achievement of racial justice in this country, if possible at all, will require not merely the more even-handed application of current laws -- that will do less than nothing - but a root and branch transformation of the legal system.

Kagan then offered four "features" that define work that falls under the rubric of CRT:

Pervasiveness of racism: First, CRT takes as a given -- as its first premise -- that racism infects every aspect of American law and American life. That racism is deep and pervasive -- some would go so far as to say inevitable and permanent.
"Neutral" law as mechanism of racial subordination: Second, CRT attempts to show that the claims of the legal system to neutrality, to impartiality, and to objectivity are false claims. CRT attempts to show that the law -- even when it seems neutral and even-handed -- in fact works in the interest of dominant groups in American society and particularly in the interest of dominant racial groups. CRT attempts to show that the so-called "logic of the law," that so-called "neutral principles" are a sort of cover for a deeply ingrained system of racial domination.
Critical of civil rights strategies: Third, CRT generally is extremely critical of the activity -- the strategy and even the goals -- of the traditional civil rights movement. The thinking here is that the traditional civil rights movement believed that all that needed to be done was to make the laws neutral-- to end legal segregation in the schools, for example -- in order to achieve racial equality in America. But such reforms, critical race theorists say, were ineffectual, and necessarily so -- because they ignored the way even neutral laws could effect racial subordination. In addition, it might be said that critical race theorists see the civil rights movement as too "reformist," too "gradualist," not sufficiently committed to the broad-scale social transformations necessary to achieve racial equality.
Insistence on incorporation of minority perspectives and use of stories: Fourth, and relatedly, critical race theory insists that the law --legal doctrines of all sorts -- be reformulated, fundamentally altered, to reflect and incorporate the perspectives and experiences of so-called "outsider groups," who have known racism and racial subordination at first hand. Critical race theorists often write not in traditional, lawyerly terms, but with parables, and stories, and dialogues. The thinking is that these techniques can better demonstrate the actual experiences of members of minority group -- experiences which should be accepted by and incorporated in the law. In addition, the decision to spurn traditional techniques of legal argument reflects the belief that these apparently neutral techniques are not neutral at all -- that they have been the means of promoting not some objective system of truth and justice, but instead a system based on racial power.

Finally, Kagan demonstrated that Derrick Bell is an "examplar" of critical race theory:

Derrick Bell as examplar: Now Derrick Bell's writing illustrates each of these four aspects of critical race theory. He believes that racism is a pervasive-- and a permanent --aspect of American society. Read 1. He believes that the legal system is a means of promoting a system of racial subordination--even, or perhaps especially, when it makes claims to objectivity and neutrality. Read 2. He is deeply critical of the strategies and goals of the traditional civil rights movement--of which he used to be a part. And he insists that law must take into account the experiences of minorities, which he attempts to explicate through dialogues and stories.

Incidentally, Kagan is not the only one of Obama's Supreme Court appointees who is thought to have more than a passing familiarity with Critical Race Theory.

The issue came up in legal circles during debate over the nomination of Justice Sonya Sotomayor, particularly with regard to her comments that a "wise Latina" might reach a "better conclusion" than a white male, and her ruling (later overruled) against white firefighters alleging discrimination in the Ricci case.

Regardless, Critical Race Theory is emerging as an important theme among some of President Obama's most important influences--and most important appointments.

These are the guys that keep racism alive and well in the USA and around the world.  They are the racist and it's sick the way they think.

We still  have Conservapedia!

Obama's racialist professor visited White House

Aaron Klein, who points out that Derrick Bell wanted to "abolish the white race as a social category," is reporting that the name "Derrick A. Bell" shows up twice in the White House visitors’ logs for Jan. 29 and Jan. 31, 2010.

Obama’s schedule shows he was inside the White House at least during Bell’s visit to the White House residence on Jan. 29 beginning at 9 a.m.
 
Bell scheduled his Jan. 31 White House appointment on Jan. 27 -- the day of Obama’s 2010 State of the Union address.
 
The White House did not immediately return a request seeking comment, but later . . .

The Wikipedia page for "Critical Race Theory" is being sanitized

 

Once again, we see Obama's supporters scrubbing the Internet of anything that can be politically damaging to their champion.

 

My guess is that this will be revision I, with more scrubbing to follow.

 

Props to Minus_The_Bear, who says, "If this video and association didn't mean anything then why is the Wikipedia page for "Critical Race Theory" being scrubbed?"

Derrick Bell speaks on white superiority & the permanence of racism

 

    
This guys' own ignorance, bigotry and bias flows smoothly, like drawn butter, and this crap is what passes for scholarship in academe.

 

And because of political correctness, this guy's nonsense can not be questioned, because the questioner would be tarred as a racist.

 

Just watch the ditz from the University of Washington eat it up.  

 

Yes, liberalism is definitely a mental disease.

Bell:  USA must admit we're permanently racist
    

There's an idiosyncracy with this video display.  So here is the link.
   
Obama: "Open your hearts and open your minds to the words of Prof. Derrick Bell."
 

Derrick Bell: "Racism is permanent"
