Obama 1991: “Open Your Hearts” to Racist Harvard Professor (Video)

Posted by FactReal on March 8, 2012


Obama in 1991 on radical race-baiting professor:

“Open your hearts and open your minds to the words of Prof. Derrick Bell.”

Breitbart.com released yesterday footage from the 1991 Harvard rally where Obama defends and praises the controversial racialist professor.

Hannity spoke to the editors at Breirbart.com to provide context and background:

On his radio show, Sean Hannity also interviewed Breitbart’s editors.

Here is the video of Obama in 1991 speaking in support of racist, radical Harvard professor Derrick Bell tied to other radicals like Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan:

Racism of Professor Derrick Bell: (Emphasis added)

Yesterday, another window revealing the president’s radical past was opened. A video released by Breitbart.com captured Obama leading a 1991 protest on behalf of Harvard Law’s Derrick Bell, described by some as the “Rev. Jeremiah Wright of the academic world.”

“Open up your hearts and your minds to the words of professor Derrick Bell,” Obama urged during the protest — which was organized because of Bell’s anger that Harvard denied tenure to a black female professor, Regina Austin, at a time when only three of the law school’s professors were black and only five were women. Bell told Harvard that “until a woman of color is offered and accepted a tenured position on this faculty,” he would take a leave of absence. He launched a hunger strike to dramatize his point. Considering Bell’s radical worldview, Obama’s enthusiastic support of this campaign and his exhortation to the crowd to embrace Bell’s philosophy is quite revealing.

Derrick Bell, who died last year at the age of 80, is credited with pioneering a concept called “critical race theory.” The theory maintains that the legal system of the United States is inherently biased against blacks and other minorities because it was built on an ingrained white point of view. Thus, it is necessary, as he argued in many books and lectures, that the life experiences of black people and other minorities be considered in hiring decisions and the application of law. For Bell, racism was both a pervasive and permanent aspect of American life. This belief led him to throw his support behind a journal entitled Race Traitor, whose editors stated that “the key to solving the social problems of our age is to abolish the white race, which means no more and no less than abolishing the privileges of white skin.”


Bell spent his entire academic career advancing this agenda, even going so far as to condemn black professors who took a more moderate stance on affirmative action as traitors to the black race who “look black but think white.”

All this raises the question: what does the president believe? Another piece of the puzzle reveals that Derrick Bell had a relationship with Mr. Obama’s former religious mentor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright. […]

Furthermore, black liberation theology’s chief architect and Rev. Wright’s mentor, James Cone, argues that Jesus Christ himself must have been black because “either God is for black people in their fight for liberation and against the white oppressors, or he is not.” Mr. Obama spent 20 years attending Cone-protégé Wright’s church. Is it possible that one can attend a church for 20 years and not be aware of the theology that animates it? One is left to wonder if the president is aware of James Cone’s incendiary statement in which he asserts that

Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community.
