Since spunky and chunky cub reporter Matt Boyle failed to bring him The Head of Eric Holder, Tucker Carlson was forced to find a place-holder for his front page in order to hang onto his readers who like their stories blah and half-white and Communist red all over.
Oh, look. here’s a story! Under the headline:
Obama’s law school course addressed ‘institutional racism in American society’
Tell us more:
A course description for “Current Issues in Racism and the Law,” a class Barack Obama taught at the University of Chicago Law School 12 times between 1992 and 2004, categorized race relations in the United States as “institutional racism in American society.”
Obama taught the two-hour seminar course more often than his other two classes, “Constitutional Law III: Equal Protection and Substantive Due Process” and “Voting Rights and the Democratic Process.” He taught those eight times beginning in 1996 and six times beginning in 1997, respectively.
This is affirmative action favoring the Racism class over the whiter and more qualified “Constitutional Law III” class.
It promised students they would “examine current problems in American race relations and the role the law has played in structuring the race debate.”
It also promised an examination of “the continued emphasis on statutory solutions to racism” that have been emphasized at the expense of “potentially richer political, economic, and cultural approaches.”
“[C]an minorities afford to shift their emphasis,” it asked, “given the continued prevalence of racism in society?”
“Can, and should, the existing concepts of American jurisprudence provide racial minorities more than formal equality through the courts?”
The course’s presumption that the legal profession has a duty to equalize minorities with the general population is a hallmark of Critical Race Theory, the academic idea that the law itself is an instrument of the powerful against the powerless, rather than an effort to seek justice.
The phrase “institutional racism” recalls the work of Derrick Bell, a controversial Harvard Law school professor whom Obama once introduced as a speaker during 1991 “diversity” protests at Harvard Law School, and whose Saturday seminars Obama attended as a law student.
New York Times reporter Jody Kantor released other materials from the course in 2008 showing that Obama taught Bell’s work, in particular Bell’s interpretations of seminal civil rights case law.
Hey. Wait a minute. Isn’t this the same stuff the Breitards were huffing and puffing about back in March when they were vettening the President for hugging a black man? Why, yes it is, but for some some reason or another it didn’t gain any traction back then. Is there any new NEW, MUST CREDIT TUCKER CARLSON red meat here for the base?
Reparations! The most favoritest of the “Ooga-Booga, they is comin’ fer our white wimmins and our gunz and our flat screens” set:
“A lot of the faculty was heavily Socratic in method, even in upper-level courses. Obama was demanding with questions, but he wouldn’t just stick on one student. It was a small seminar.”
It’s unclear how much of Obama’s views from a decade or more ago influence his conduct in office. None of the Obama students identified in the book discussed on the record what Obama taught or discussed in class.
But Obama’s views on the material he was teaching did leak out on occasion. Remnick quoted an unnamed former law student who said Obama supported racial reparations…
That’s it! Game changer! Here comes President Romn–
Oh wait. What?
…in theory, but found it unworkable in practice.
“He told us what he thought about reparations. He agreed entirely with the theory of reparations. But in practice he didn’t think it was really workable,” the former student said. “You could tell he thought he had let the cat out of the bag and felt uncomfortable.”
“To agree with reparations in theory,” the student continued, “means we go past apology and can actually change the dynamics of the country based on other situations where you saw reparations … As the complexities emerged — who is black, how far back do you go, what about recent immigrants still feeling racism, do they have a claim — finally, he [Obama] said, ‘That is why it’s unworkable.’”
Oh. Well… fuck. That’s not going to change America’s hearts and minds.
So did you hear about this Reverend Wright guy? Ho-lee shit. Lemme tell you about this guy…
