Bell, Farrakhan BFFs

Bell, Farrakhan BFFs

Derrick Bell’s Faces at the Bottom of the Well is a fascinating take on racial politics. But he saves his most flattering words for an anti-Semite who called Judaism a “gutter religion,” believes that H1N1 flu vaccine was created to depopulate the earth, supported racist monster Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, and received backing from Moammar Gadhafi: Louis Farrakhan.

Here’s what Bell wrote about Farrakhan in his book:

Smart and superarticulate, Minister Farrakhan is perhaps the best living example of a black man ready, willing and able to ‘tell it like it is’ regarding who is responsible for racism in this country …. every black person important enough to be interviewed is asked to condemn Minister Farrakhan–or any other truly outspoken black leader.

No wonder black Harvard Law professor Randall Kennedy blasted Bell for “an egregious toleration of bigotry.” Even Henry Louis “Skip” Gates – a favored ally of President Obama, as we learned during the beer summit – denounced Bell for this, stating, “How can you call yourself an intellectual and not find anti-Semitism nauseating?”
