I'm sure you all have seen the "exclusive" video of Barak Obama opening a speach up for Derek Bell. If you haven't you can find it here: http://video.foxnews.com/v/149466175...video-unveiled. Now I know all the Dems are going to say Sean Hannity is off is gourd, and maybe. I personally think he brings up good points every once in awhile. But this Thread isn't about Sean Hannity, it's about new information released about our President Barak Obama, and why we should care.



So who is this Derek Bell guy that Obama tells us to open our minds and hearts to his words? I wasn't able to find out much about him besides he was a Professor at USC Harvard Law and did visitor professorship at NYU where he saw inequalities in the tenure process for African American's. This specific footage cocerns his dicission to go on a non-paid leave of absence until an African American Woman was tenured. So this begs the question in 1991 what was wrong with Harvard Law's process of tenuring their professors? Well at the time they only tenured professors that graduated from Ivy league schools, who had stewardship with the Supreme Court which he claimed perpetuated a well-to-do all white male tenure professors. This is about all I know, but I would like to know why Obama's association with him was intentionaly kept secret until now. I know he was a close friend of Obama until he passed away last year.



I cannot pass judgement on anyone, but I like to be informed about the men who are President of my country.

PBS showed that in 2008. It wasn't a secret. That is just ridiculous bunk as there wasn't anything wrong with supporting Professor Bell.

Wingnuts like Dan and Hannity are right to be concerned.....after all, Derrick Bell was a scary black man.

I guess this wouldn't be the same Derek Bell that played for the Padres in the 1990's.

A scary, scary Harvard professor. I know. LOL. He certainly doesn't inspire that in me.



But that video does show Barack Obama sticking his neck out as the President of the Harvard Law Review, knowingly risking future opportunities in his career by being perceived as someone taking part in a protest or that kind of thing. He showed that he had integrity and courage. And that is just what one of his classmates said about it, too.

Don't think so Willie.



Nor is it the Derek Bell who played inside-right for Man City in the late 1960's

Even more shocking, we've now learned that Obama pals around with black people.

Hey you freedom hating Libs, I'm not scared, I had no idea it was put out in 2008 even though the professor who just released it said he had kept it hidden during the 2008 election.



Oh and someone who wants to lower standards to give his race a better opportunity is wrong. What if I said hey, we need to lower standards in the NBA so I can basketball? That is WRONG! Oh and I sure a pedophile and communist is nothing to give a thought about when it comes to mentoring a future president huh?



You people make me sick.

And I guess it doesn't bother you that Obama was a devote member of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright for 20 years too, or that Obama gave him a position of power in his administration until his hate speech was unearthed. Wow, you guys have blinders on. What if there were true of Clinton, Bush, Carter, or any other white president. I'm sure all you would be burning panties begging and pleading for socialism.
