Scandal! Harvard Law Review President Obama, in 1991, supports racial diversity! #Uppity
BuzzFeed unearthed this video of a protest at Harvard Law School in 1991, in which the president of the school's law review, who was its first black president, took the side of professor Derrick Bell in his call for more racial and gender diversity on the faculty.
This appears to be the video that the late Andrew Breitbart so darkly warned us about. It is also an example of the different ways different groups can perceive the same video. I think you will agree that this is the same Barack Obama that we saw in the 2008 campaign, notwithstanding the different hair style. I would love for the far right to give us the names of people who would otherwise have voted for President Obama but will not because of this video. Personally, I appreciate seeing this old video of the law student who would be POTUS.
As to Professor Bell, who died last October (six days before Frank Kameny), he was more radical than Barack. Below is a video, also supplied by BuzzFeed, of Professor Bell in 2010 discussing racism in the Obama era. Kindly spare me the denunciations, if you are scandalized by his comments, and explain to me exactly how he is wrong.
