Marc Lamont Hill Ignores Black Racism

Bill O’Reilly’s recurrent far Left guest Dr. Marc Lamont Hill appeared last night on the “O’Reilly Factor” and echoed the NAACP’s denunciation of the Tea Party movement as racist. This was a new low even for Hill, an associate professor of Education at Columbia University Teachers’ College who claims on his web site to be “one of the leading hip-hop generation intellectuals in the country.”

Usually, O’Reilly has Hill on his show to discuss issues which he knows nothing about, such as national security.  This time, however, one would hope against all odds that this “leading hip-hop generation intellectual,” who also boasts on his website that he holds “an affiliated faculty appointment in African American Studies at the Institute for Research in African American Studies at Columbia University,” would have had something half-way intelligent to say on the subject of racism in America.

Alas, that was not to be.  Hill’s arguments were not only way off the mark.  He was incoherent in presenting them. Neither he nor the NAACP, a caricature of the civil rights group it once was, are willing to acknowledge that racism and bigotry know no color or ethnic origin boundaries.

As Karl Rove said in the segment that followed, Hill twisted himself into a knot trying to avoid the obvious – that the NAACP chose to ignore racism in the African-American community as evidenced by the actions and statements of New Black Panther Party leaders. Hill kept repeating unproven allegations that Tea Party members hurled racial epithets at black Congressmen and carried racist signs urging the lynching of President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. White men, said Hill, are “institutional” racists.

How can anyone take this guy seriously?  Fox News Channel fired Hill last year from his analyst post as a result of concerns about his “reputation of defending cop killers and racists.” But for some inexplicable reason, O’Reilly keeps bringing him back. It is time to give Hill his walking papers for good.
