African American Studies Professor
Names 'The 15 Most Overrated
White People,' Includes Reagan

Can you imagine the outrage if a white commentator wrote an article with the headline "The 15 Most Overrated Black People?" On Monday, African American Studies professor and political commentator Marc Lamont Hill published a piece at the Huffington Post entitled "The 15 Most Overrated White People." To honor Columbus Day, Hill began his piece by bashing one of our nation's most beloved figures. "Although history proves that Christopher Columbus was an immoral treasure hunter who merely stumbled upon a region that had already been 'discovered' by indigenous non-whites," wrote Hill, "we continue to praise the vicious

Comments:
This guy is as much of a racist as Michael Eric Dyson. You can imagine what would happen if Republicans prepared a list of the most overrated black people! That list would be very long and at the top would be Barack Hussein 0bama. I can't say that I disagree with him on Bill Clinton and Justin Bieber.

Here's an example of a non-news event. Why is it even here? The list makes no sense but to prop up Dr Hill and his racist agenda.

This fool is as much a professor as I am.

His body temp is higher by far than his IQ.

It drives me nuts when he is brought on to O'Reilly for comic relief.

I agree with some of his list.
Bieber, Elvis, Clinton, Palin, Harry/Kate and Tebow.

Reagan, Eminimem (keep it in perspective of rappers,not that he is a great person), Babe Ruth all should be removed from his list.

It need not be seperated by race as I think Obama will make his Black list.

Another straw man argument. Why would a professed serious comparison compare a R&B singer and a pop star with this country's greatest president?

Another way of saying, "I need to tear down some white folks to divert attention because President Obama's performance in the debate with Mr. Romney defines EPIC FAIL!"

Let's admit it, "African American Studies" is a code phrase that really means Bash Whitey Studies. Racism is still a problem in America, but it's not coming from white people, institutions, or The Man, it's coming from universities, the NAACP and various community 'organizers' and it is blatant racism against white people.

Everyone on that list -- even Justin Bieber -- is about 20 steps up on the evolutionary ladder to ''Prof'' Hill...

What a low class, racist idiot!!!

Based on his ''logic'' for including Elvis on his list, every opera singer is ''overrated'' -- since none of them play instruments while they sing, and I doubt any of them wrote the music that they sing. Someone tell Pavorati that he is overrated according to ''Prof'' Hill's ''logic''...

Marc is not an intellect. He is simply provocative, in an antagonistic manner. His list shows nothing very thoughtful or insightful, it was concocted to agitate. And yes, he is racist. After all the history of telling White America it should no longer engage in racism, racist antagonizers like Marc should know better. In fact, this makes his actions worse, as done intentionally to cause harm.

Number 7 put 0bama first and MLK second. I'd reverse the two. MLK has been made into practically a saint. His biography is revisionist history, the idea being that putting out fiction often enough (as well as building monuments and giving him a national holiday) will make it true. However, the same princple applies to the life and "work" of 0bama.

This makes me think of the movie Lesson 21 (Lezione 21). The premise of the story is a college class where the professor discusses the most overrated works of art and music of all time. In particular, the movie fixates on Beethoven's 9th Symphony.

The movie starts out quite good, but eventually fails miserably. I think one of the reasons it fails is because I have always enjoyed the 9th Symphony, and no amount of chatter is going to make me think I hate something that I like.

Marc -- it was our moral authority, our taking up the world wide commission to spread the gospel -- even to cannibals -- and our freedom to achieve excellence that got us to where we are today. "America was great," DeToqueville explained, "because America was good." But we have 2 Americas now. No more white man's burden. Reagan had moral authority. He was the last President to stand for American values. Democrats boo God. Current Republicans take the same dirty money and cry. OTOH Marc, lets be fair and up to date. Everybody is a star.

Hey Mr Hill,

Let's take your racist theory and apply it to the NBA and college professors. We should have equal quotas of NBA players as blacks, whites, asians and hispanics to the American population so everyone gets a fair share and everyone gets a fair shake. With regards to college professors, we must have equal numbers of conservative professors to liberal professors to offset the stupidity taught in our schools by clowns like Mark Hill.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

Eight Million ´Enrollments,´

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov.

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
