Why did the story of Michelle's obama racist essay go away

“During her third and final year at Harvard Law School, first lady Michelle Obama — then named Michelle Robinson — penned an article for the newsletter of Harvard’s Black Law Students Association (BLSA), arguing that Harvard and its students were perpetuating “racist and sexist stereotypes” by not intentionally hiring minority and female law professors on the basis of their sex or skin color.”

Evidently is was okay in her mind to be hired as a community organizer by a Shitcago hospital, making 300K a year, and not doing a damn thing to earn it. She DESERVED it!

The Obama’s are nothing but grifters surfing the Affirmative Action wave. How DID Martin Luther King put it? Oh yeah, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

Evidently the grifters in the WH don’t believe that.

Instead, she praised the teaching of several professors who didn’t use the Socratic method, including the far-left academics Martha Minow and Charles Ogletree. Minow’s father, Newton Minow, later recruited Michelle and Barack Obama to Sidley Austin, the Chicago law firm where the two met. Ogletree, who mentored both Michelle and Barack at Harvard, admitted during the 2008 election that he had concealed a videotape of Obama praising “critical race theory” architect Derrick Bell.

Michelle also gushed praise for critical race theory itself — the view that law is an instrument of the powerful against the powerless, rather than an effort to seek justice.

    She and her husband clearly have a different ideology of most Americans.

    The ones that voted this guy back in are either part of the stupidity or completely clueless. I like to believe that they are clueless and are just low enough on the IQ scale to be easily swayed by the idiotic rhetoric of this Administration, it's ridiculous campaign commercials and the regurgitation by the Administrations propaganda machine powered by the MSM and MSNBC and the like.

    With an IQ that low there is a chance they can be converted back to reality, although a strong leader must emerge with a clear message to defeat this tyrants parties next candidate in 2016.

    She is a racist more than most whites--she never felt proud of her country until Barak was nominated to be president--that is a racist statement. The leftisit propagand media will not allow bad press for either of thes two and Fox is just as bad!

    New to Soda: The American people would love for you to explain just what Obama and his wife are doing that is so GREAT for this country???? What President would come right out in the open to make it so known as to his feelings that the black is his priority, instead of being neutral to any race etc.... I am not an Obama hater nor do I like this First Family in any way shape or form, what is right is right and what is wrong is wrong. Obama shouldn't attack other races because they don't think or agree with how you see the world as BLACK over BLACK. Obama is in this ride for himself spending taxpayers money faster than it is printed that includes your tax dollars. As far as haters go Obama isn't the first President to be hated not will he be the last, he is a SHAME TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE and yes to YOU AS WELL. What is it that is so GREAT about YOUR Obama????

    You seem to have a rage issue. Her argument (whether accepted or not) is not uncommon and not an unusual position. In fact it is at the root of arguments for affirmative action and even if you don't agree with AA you need to be able to discuss and consider opinions supporting this and other agenda items without reflexively constructing incendiary narratives. Of course that applies to about 50% of the right wing still in shock that a black man might not only once, but now twice on a popular vote of the people.

    Just because something is not uncommon does not mean we should not fight it if it is wrong. I do agree that she is right if she is quoting the law. I, like many, disagree with the Affirmative action. It is an old law that needs to be removed. People should get jobs because of their abilities and not because of the color of their skin. If people are so racist why is it that many firms are hiring people of color from non African countries. It is not because of the color of these people but because of their skill. So if someone wants a job in this country they just have to show they are the best for the job and they will get it. Our government should not force companies to hire people just because of their color. I have to admit that there are probably some blue color worker jobs like steel mill jobs where we would still have some prejudice. But I doubt that most of the professions have that problem. I have a business, I want the guy that makes me the most money. Or woman...lol

    And you bring up good points and argue them reasonably. The poster on the other hand is a moron. There are both sides to this. At the base of this whole issue in this country is simply a long troubled history of racism and how you break through that. A strong part of the case AA makes and the First Lady made is that until minorities see themselves IN positions such as professors, doctors, lawyers, etc... young minority children will have difficulty picturing themselves in those roles and won't pursue those types of positions. Countered against that of course is that 1) forcing less qualified applicants upward damages the quality of the product and 2) causes indignation particularly among those displaced. It is a tough call. And argued rationally people can disagree while still respecting the counter view. Incidentally I whole heartedly and unabashedly agree that AA needs to continue where bias has been demonstrated to exist which is actually very consistent with SCOTUS rulings. At the point that an organization is shown to factually discriminate against a minority and 'make-up' period of reverse discrimination is entirely appropriate to achieve some balance. This has been the case in a number of fire and police departments in particular.

    Racist, fascist and bigoted arguments are not uncommon. So what? does it make them more acceptable and even suitable for WH occupants?

    Fascist has nothing to do with it unless you're using some alternative definition of Fascism. As to 'Racist' I guess we can debate 'race based' as a terminology vs. Racist. Personally I'm somewhat convinced that in many instances racial quotas, targeted hiring, etc... can all have a more negative than a positive impact BUT I can also understand the alternative position without resorting to terms that somehow equate EO and AA with slavery and lynching and some of the other racists practices in our past. A key part of the very simple argument made both by the First Lady and many other politicians over the years (including some considered conservatives) is that AA establishes a diversity in society that then becomes the example for those following and until that diversity is shown in society and the work place, then society will have expectations that define who will pursue these societal roles. Even those who oppose AA should be able to accept that concept without labeling it 'racist'. I actually on balance believe that these programs for the most part may now do more damage than good but that doesn't mean I then label anybody supporting AA as a racist and equate them to those who supported the institution of slavery, etc....

    You use one sentence to assume a retarded position? How un-American of you.

    During her third and final year at Harvard Law School, first lady Michelle Obama — then named Michelle Robinson — penned an article for the newsletter of Harvard’s Black Law Students Association (BLSA), arguing that Harvard and its students were perpetuating “racist and sexist stereotypes” by not intentionally hiring minority and female law professors on the basis of their sex or skin color.

    The 1988 essay, titled “Minority and Women Law Professors: A Comparison of Teaching Styles,” ran in a special edition of the BLSA Memo. The future first lady justified her demands for more black and female law school faculty by attacking the “traditional model,” in which law students were educated through the Socratic method.

    She also opposed the traditional meritocratic hiring principle, where professors with better legal pedigrees were more often hired, arguing that it limited the success of women and blacks.

    “The faculty’s decision to distrust and ignore non-traditional qualities in choosing and tenuring law professors merely reinforces racist and sexist stereotypes,” Mrs. Obama wrote, ”which, in turn, serve to legitimize students’ tendencies to distrust certain types of teaching that do not resemble the tra...

    “The faculty’s decision to distrust and ignore non-traditional qualities in choosing and tenuring law professors merely reinforces racist and sexist stereotypes,” Mrs. Obama wrote, ”which, in turn, serve to legitimize students’ tendencies to distrust certain types of teaching that do not resemble the traditional images.”

    In particular, she condemned the Harvard law professor ideal made famous in John Osborn’s 1970 book “The Paper Chase” and Scott Turow’s 1977 autobiographical novel “One-L,” for promoting the view that law school faculty should be “cold, callous, domineering, old, white men who took pleasure in engaging their students in humiliating and often brutal discourse.” She faulted her fellow students for being “racist” and “sexist” and buying into that particular “image” of a proper law school education.

    Instead, she praised the teaching of several professors who didn’t use the Socratic method, including the far-left academics Martha Minow and Charles Ogletree. Minow’s father, Newton Minow, later recruited Michelle and Barack Obama to Sidley Austin, the Chicago law firm where the two met. Ogletree, who mentored both Michelle and Barack at Harvard, admitted during the 2008 election that he had concealed a videotape of Obama praising “critical race theory” architect Derrick Bell.

    Michelle also gushed praise for critical race theory itself — the view that law is an instrument of the powerful against the powerless, rather than an effort to seek justice.

    “Now, unlike before, students are being made to see how issues of class, race, and sex are relevant to questions of law,” she wrote. These issues, she said, were “being presented by people who possess the enthusiasm, sensitivity, and ingenuity necessary to bring excitement back into the classroom.”

    Her choice of language bore clear similarities to the “empathy” test Barack Obama promised to use when deciding on nominees for the judiciary. If the advances of the critical race movement were stymied, Michelle worried, this “new breed of law professors will be systematically excluded” from Harvard.

    Seems that unlimited power is owed to those who NEVER suffered under slavery, yet still feel entitled to some retribution against those of us who NEVER owned slaves simply on the basis of skin color! Am I to feel guilt because I am the same color as American slave masters. I will not until they feel guilt for being black, like the people in Africa who sold their brethren to the slave ships.

    Come to think of it, Barack Obama's family remained in Africa until a generation ago. Does that make HIM guilty on BOTH ends?

    By fanning the flames of racism and entitlement in the black community, he will make African Americans more likely to commit hate crimes while making white Americans paranoid of such events.

    ANy person WISHING they had been left in africa is an idiot, and most of the American blacks clinging to slavery were never related to any person who was a slave. Massive immigration from Africa happened after the civil war, because the opportunities were so vast. Too bad they bought their community leaders lies and feel hook, line and sinker for tired old lies and recommitted themselves to the government plantation wholesale.

    Conditions on the african continent are SO bad, that no person should ever be born in America-from ANY nation-and not thank GOD Himself for delivering them into the land of milk and honey.

    Their leaders for decades have told them it is never their fault, they are never to blame and they are just not as smart as everyone else so they need lower scores for jobs, entrance into the military, or promotions in the military or at jobs that require testing for promotion.

    I would IGNORE a community leader that repeatedly told me I was stupid, but they largely seem to listen to theirs.

    schooling in a poor community is not schooling. the fact is that politicians are not going to want to spend for better schooling because the people in that community are on the lower scale of wages and contribute little in taxes.

    the teachers are horrible, the infrastructure is horrible. so what happens? the outcome is pretty apparent to me. poor communities will remain poor because little of anything goes in--just crime. giving them money to buy food isn't going to help them succeed in life.
