How Derrick Bell Beat Martin Luther King Jr.

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

“History proves that the white man is a devil,” said Malcolm X. “Whites are liars,” said Jeremiah Wright. “I love to harass white folks,” said Derrick Bell.

“This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy,” a black teenager said to Allen Coon, a white student on the porch of his own home, as he set him on fire.

“Don’t tell me words don’t matter,” Obama once said. And he was right. Words do matter. The words of his mentors that have rooted hate so deep in the black community that it has become a cancer, a sore that bleeds violence, a stain on the soul.

While white racism continues to decline year by year, black racism has advanced to the White House and into the hearts and minds of millions. It leads to everything from discrimination to murder. It led to a thirteen-year-old boy screaming as fire ate at the flesh of his face, burning away the white skin that his attackers had been taught to hate so much.

“While city officials, state agencies, white liberals, and sober-minded Negroes stand idly by, a group of Negro dissenters is taking to street-corner step ladders, church pulpits, sports arenas, and ballroom platforms across the United States, to preach a gospel of hate that would set off a federal investigation if it were preached by Southern whites.”

The year was 1959 and the voice was that of Mike Wallace. Since then the “Gospel of Hate” has become mainstream in parts of the black community. Black leaders like Jeremiah Wright have discarded the Black Muslim origins of their hate, along with the tales of UFOs  and Mohammed, but have retained its deep-seated venomous racism.

The Nation of Islam, the subject of Wallace’s documentary, has won. Its Million Man March was the largest organized show of political force by the black community in decades. Its breakaway activist, Malcolm X, has displaced Martin Luther King, as a political role model in the black community. Most of all its hate has become distilled into the rhetoric and beliefs of even non-Muslim clergy and scholars.

While we look at the hateful words of a Jeremiah Wright or a Derrick Bell who preach from the pulpit or propound from their ivory tower desks, we often ignore their impact on the ground floor of public life and what happens when their teachings trickle down to create an atmosphere of oppression and hate.

Allen Coon, a 13-year-old boy, was set on fire as a consequence of the mainstreaming of racism in the black community to the extent that hatred for white people became a regular feature of his classes at school.

“You’ve got to be taught, to hate and fear,” Lieutenant Cable hummed in Rodger and Hammerstein’s South Pacific. “You’ve got to be taught, from year to year.”

Allen Coon’s assailants, who followed him home from school, poured gasoline on him and flicked the lighter, had been carefully taught to hate by teachers in the Kansas City public school system. Those teachers had also been taught to hate from year to year. The burns on the face of a thirteen-year-old white boy did not emerge out of thin air. They are marks of the bigotry of men like Jeremiah Wright and Derrick Bell, of words that collect like rainwater in the gutter, seeping into the hearts and minds of those in the black community who consider those bigots leaders, until it overflows and torture, rape and murder follow.

    sad but true

    There are certain few who love being a victim and complaining while for some reason (like, oh I don't know, not working regularly, not going to school and making an effort, not teaching your children the English language) the opportunities seem few. This is behavior that could be changed but how?

  • http://www.goweddingdress.com gowedding

    This is so sad but the truth!!!
    We all should remember these things.

  • Eyes_Open

    Whites have become less racist over the generations, but with this type of thing becoming more prevalent, how long do you think before that trend reverses as well. This time the black community will have no one to blame but itself. But in reality, isn't that what these types of people want, their hate produces hate, which in turn justifies and feeds their hate. And then they will swear they never started any of it.

    • Saltire

      You bring up an interesting point. There are some in the black community that are starting to have a different point of view about progressive liberal policies. http://www.runawayslavemovie.com/site/

      • Eyes_Open

        Nice link, hadn't seen that one. Bill Crosby is a perfect example of this mindset, strive and you can achieve, take a hand-out and you will be enslaved.

        • Ted

          I doubt the trends will ever change, due to the fact that blacks only take up 13% of America's population. Anyhow, to say white racists numbers have gone down, i agree to a certain extent. Just because someone isn't openly racists or perform hate crimes on a race doesn't mean they treat that race as their equal, which is racists. The fact is racism will always be around, in one form or another. I also do not think blacks will build more hate. This crime was wrong and the people involved should be trailed and sent to prison for it, but to raise voices that blacks are becoming more racists to whites? That is insane. This was an incident like the other dozens of incidents where racism played a part, whether it be black on white or white on black.

  • theleastthreat

    In regard to the Allen Coon case, I have to appeal for calm and reason as this incident has a very big emotional component attached to it. The attackers need to be tried for the crime and punished. The school system needs to root out racist staff and dismiss them. Schools should hire teachers, not agitators. And the local churches and civic leaders need to teach and preach on the disaster that awaits them if this situation continues. No one was put on this planet to be a doormat, nor a human torch, and no one was born with a target on their back. If President Obama felt compelled to speak out on the Fluke case, he should speak even louder here. He really should.

    • Guest

      Appeal,for calm! How many whites have to be burned before lazy sniffling cowards take to the streets and demand justice. If only we had a white as brave an unafraid as the black leaders of yesteryears who marched in the face of not only verbal assault but dogs water cannons and other forms of violence. How many whites have to be maimed and brutally murdered before it raises you desire to NOT remain calm?

      • theleastthreat

        I said this incident has a very large emotional element. This kind of thing can easily get out of control, like the Koran incident in Afghanistan. Keep the emotion down and deal with it through the courts and through civil means. The parents of the attackers can be sued. Leaders can denounce this act. The teachers and other staff should lose their jobs. Those are the kinds of consequences we can live with. In other words, stop it before it spreads any further. Taliban tactics don't work.

        • Bruce O'H

          It's too late. The Left OWNS education. The Left OWNS the Justice Dept. The Left OWNS the White House. The Left OWNS the media. We are not going to get help from those systems. The ALL agree with the racism. We are on our own.

    • downeast

      Why would Obama say anything when the only source for this story is American Thinker, a notorious fever swamp of conspiracies. Perhaps to disprove skeptics, what one should be when reading, someone could post a newspaper source of this case.

    • Saltire

      I agree. The Kansas City police are still investigating and have not let the case drop between the cracks. The incident reportedly occurred two weeks ago and it takes time for leads to be tracked down.

  • kentatwater

    I was saddened to learn that Nina Simone, whose version of Feeling Good is still the definitive version, AFAIAC, fell on the Bell/X side. Well, at least she had an excuse. She was mentally ill, and took medication in her later years, for her condition.

  • EKP

    "If President Obama felt compelled to speak out on the Fluke case, he should speak even louder here."

    Nah, his concern is reserved for his voting demographic (minorities, communists, fascists, feminists, and union members). The victim was white and isn't old enough to vote. So, that's two strike's against him getting a phone call. The third strike is the fact that the vile animals that attacked him were black, and Barry can't acknowledge that fact publically without pissing-off the "the black community".

    Three strikes and you're out. Thus, the kid isn't going to receive a phone call from Mawgli.

    More importantly, Barry doesn't give two shyts about what happens to a poor defenseless white boy. He probably believes the kid deserved it, too.

    FUBO!

  • maturin20

    I think it is absolutely obscene when Zionist Jews try to play blacks and white off of one another for political gain. Greenfield tried to flog us over the head with a canned marionette of Malcolm X, and resurrect the slimy specter of a 1950s Mike Wallace. Is it still 1950? Do muckracking Jewish racists who were not alive back then get to flog people in the the living present with the ghosts of the past? Not with any credibility. This article is sheer race baiting. It does not endear me to Israel. It repels me from Israel.

    • Guest

      Can you explain how burning a white boy while he had racial comments hurled his way is race baiting? Your own hatred interfers with critical thinking. You need to educate yourself someplace other than stormfront.

      • maturin20

        Nobody here burned any white boy. Also, there is no Stormfront reader. So, I would call that a straw man.

        • Western Canadian

          But you fail to condemn it. You are a low church racist yourself, ignorant, and hate filled, Quite transparent. And utterly revolting.

    • Frustrated Guest

      What is transpiring here with blacks is no different from what the Palestinians teach their children from birth onward ….. to hate and kill the Jews. The same with Muslims except they include Christians. It's only a matter of time before you start hearing the refrain to openly kill whitey.
      Whites have bent over backwards to help and appease blacks to no avail. I now look at what's happening and liken the whites guilt trip motivations for racial harmony amount to nothing more now than Neville Chamberlain's naive peace in our time.

      A perfect storm is coming! Are you ready for it?

      • maturin20

        The sky is falling. Still.

          • maturin20

            "Blooming?!" That's antisemitic! Bloom? Blum? I see what you are getting at there. You are clearly trying to make a slur out of a common Jewish surname.

    • neils60

      Matty, Your commentary is so ridiculous, that you make it painfully obvious that you're trying to prove that you're well educated regarding black history, and it's so apparent that you're not. Additionally, you're sounding a lot like the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who, when asked if he's been in contact with President Obama since he's taken office, the Wright said, "No, and it's because of them Jews." Later, Wright modified his hatred just a bit and stated, "No, I meant to say it's because of them Zionists."
      And, finally, no one on earth cares whether you're endeared to Israel or repelled from it.

    • kentatwater

      A lot of florid concern troll verbiage, best summed up as "divide and conquer."

      • maturin20

    • aspacia

      This black on white violence constantly happens throughout Africa, in addition to Muslim on Black Christian violence.

  • Gunner57

    The anti-white racism that is being peddled by Obama is becoming more and more violent. White people are now second class citizens in this country.

    Stop for one moment and think of the horror that young boy experienced while being doused with gasoline, set afire with the intent of burning him alive by two black thugs yelling "..white boy" while he was ablaze. You could smell his skin and hair burning. What do he do to deserve this? He went to school that day. Imagine the horror of being a parent and having that happen to your child. Welcome to Obama's America.

    If the races had been reversed, the media and Obama along with Eric Holder would have shut this country down and ordered a veritable pogrom against white people. There is an ongoing holocaust going on against Christians in the Middle East. If we are not careful we are seeing the beginnings of one in America that will include not only Christians but all white people too. Black Liberation Theology makes white people akin to being the Devil, so does the Nation of Islam. So following that logic through to its conclusion, just like in Mein Kampf it only follows that there eventually must be a final solution to the white people problem. They are after all, the Devil.

    Black nationalists attempted to annex Martin Luther King Jr. in the late 1960s. It was a very nervy move that I described here while the election campaign was on. It got published in History News Network probably because the editors were supporting Hillary Clinton at the time. See my alarm bell rung here: http://clarespark.com/2009/10/31/the-offing-of-ma…. I read James Cone and was flabbergasted that the media were not covering this travesty of history and political science.

  • mrbean

    A thing of note. Let any black speak out against black tribalism, black crime, black sub culture, or be critical publically of any black and out will come the Uncle Tom accusations. The best example of Black tribalism was when OJ Simpson was acquitted. Obama is only President because of white guilt and black tribalism and to a cetain extent the parisitic mindset of many American women who want a cradle to grave nanny state.

  • Questions

    Derrick Bell was a repugnant excuse for a legal "scholar," but Martin Luther King Jr. was only a modest improvement. I resent the way conservatives have engaged in a posthumous image makeover of King as one of them. He was nothing of the kind. King was a man of Left-radicalism, albeit of a distinctly Christian kind, and stated as much in many interviews. And his personal life was something less than exemplary. A true foil to Bell would be someone like Thomas Sowell.

  • Steve Chavez

    LOUIS FARRAKKAN just spoke at Berkeley and was given a standing ovation. If a white man said about blacks what he says about whites, there would be riots. Notice no "mic checks" or any type of disruption from the audience. Racist hate speech to the core but he was allowed to speak by the univesity President since it is "free speech" but only two weeks ago, Nonie Darwish, an Egyptian born activist who left Islam to become a Christian and who spoke of the abuse of women under Sharia Law, was interupted with a "mic check" which then audience members threw them out. They called her speech "hate speech" and yet Farrakkan and Ahmadinejad are given the red carpet treatment by students at Berkeley and Columbia!

    • UCSPanther

      Farrakhan is essentially a David Duke-type, and it is real sad when a higher learning institute flushes its credibility by treating bigotted freaks like they have credibility and giving them a platform to spew their rhetoric.

I too was consumed with vile hatred in my youth. Ex-black nationalist, communist. Racism is America's foremost mental health pathology. White racism is first but black racism is a photo finish close second ! As a fair-skinned black male, I caught hell from white people as well as my own people! Without the primacy of God in resolving this dilemma there is little hope! Red,yellow,black,or white. We are all precious in his sight! We are not brothers and sisters because of our color.

      A number of our Founding Fathers (Thomas Jefferson among them) thought that emancipation would result in ongoing hatred between the races due to slavery, and that removing the freed slaves from the United States would be a good idea. Liberia wasn't just some emancipator's utopian dream, you know.

    • sam vila

      The blacks did not ask to come here, (apart from immigrants), they were forcibly moved from Africa to the U.S. Whites have no right to tell them to leave. On the other hand, black racism causes white racism now – my father, who immigrated from Israel, became a racist because his college had a black studies department full of anti-semites and led by an anti-semite. In my readings, victim groups, including gays, blacks, hispanics, etc. sometimes spout vile hatred.

      • tagalog

        Interestingly, a large number of black people, based on the length of their families' stays in America, have a longer American pedigree than most white people.

        On the other hand, the logic of your position, to wit: whites brought (some) blacks to America against their will and can't therefore tell them to leave now, escapes me. I agree that the descendants of black slaves have a right to remain here if they choose due to their presence in America for so long, but I don't agree that if we removed their ancestors from their homes and brought them to America, they must remain solely because of that. That would make white people responsible for black people, and I doubt that most respectable blacks and whites would accept that.

  • tagalog

    The debate has been misshapen by the people carrying it on. Blacks have historically been disadvantaged, that's true. The Civil Rights Movement has brought a lot of that to an end, and blacks are now equal before the law.

    But black people still think that white people have advantages. Black people have led themselves to believe that it must be true that white people are advantaged. But the truth is that just because black people have been disadvantaged, white people don't just magically have advantages. Blacks must now have to take their chances at life just like everybody else. But they still think whites are hiding something from them, and that whites are still keeping them down. That's why the level of hatred of whites by blacks remains so virulent and seems to be rising.

    This is why blacks insist that white racism against blacks is institutionalized, and it's also why tools like Derrick Bell think that white racism is forever. They think something is being hidden from them. It gives a good excuse for failure, too; it's all the fault of those bastard white people, who are still hiding the goodies.

  • tagalog

    That's why Barack Obama is so free and easy with throwing the money around. The average person understands that there aren't any hidden bennies, and understands that throwing us into debt by a trillion dollars is crippling our children and grandchildren; for Barack Obama and those like him, all that debt will be taken care of when the hidden benefits that white people have been hiding all this time are uncovered. The existence of the huge debt itself will be an incentive to reveal where the loot is buried.

    • tagalog

      This analysis makes it easy to understand, too, why the Obama administration thinks that dunning rich people will be enough to get a trillion-dollar debt paid off, once all those Uncle Scrooges open the doors to their coffers, where they go swimming in great pools of $20 gold pieces.

  • Gunner57

    What we have to do is address racial IQ's. Blacks are on average an one full standard deviation below that of white people with mixed American black IQ's in the 83-85 range while pure blacks average the pathetic 75 range.

    We can never expect them to compete in a First World country that they could never create nor maintain. The reason that we must pound this fact home is because if we do not we will be blamed for their intellectual failures and inequality This will cause them to hate us even more because they will blame us for their lack of ability inciting them to even more violence. Look at what has happened in Zimbabwe and South Africa, well it's is now happening here with hate racist blacks running our government.

Christian pure culture helps a lot people who embrace… you sound as silly as the people who think Obama as black is the most brightest president than his white counter part even though I personnally beleive Netanyahu is brightest than him. this is very stupid idea and bigot analyses… There are low IQ white, Black, yellow, asian as there are IQ for all race… what the world need is not Wisdom..

      Tom… Bill Clinton trained and armed Mr Kagame and his led Tutsi armee from Uganda to shoot with stinger missile a the peaceful (Hutu) president of Rwanda on his plane along with another president of Burundi… That was the start of the genocide.. The USA department Knew and planed viciously the outcome and fall out to help the tutsi minority dominated this part of the world.. In a country where people are not that much educated… 2 ethnies, U shot dead a leader of one ethny, what do you think,will happen… In all those evils skims, there is a part of African people responsability but moreover United States was behind that….

    This is the mantra of the Obama Justice Department. It is payback time. Race relations, which had been improving, are now going in reverse. Inclusion is now replaced by separation by choice. Instead of one America, there are two, possibly three. That the preachers of hate seem to be center stage at the moment is a fact. That reverse discrimination is happening is a fact. Can this be pattern of resegregation be reversed, it will take leaders, the stature of Martin Luther King Jr. to do it. The idea that children will be judged not by the color of their skin, but by their mind and character, that day is a long way into the future. But, it is a future worth pursuing. One day, we will drop the ethnic description such as Hispanic American and simply call ourselves Americans.

    Now that I've read a little on the underlying principles of Critical Race Theory, I've concluded that there is more of a danger to it than I thought before, although before it seemed quite dangerous to me.

    CRT assumes that racism is the norm, not an aberration, and that the present legal system, built on ideals of equality and liberty, is racist because it was a system engineered and built by racist whites.

    Assuming that's true, that racism is inherent, the expected norm, and inherent in the systems of any given society, what is there to fight racism? And more frightening, what is there to guarantee equality before the law and individual liberty? Answer: NOTHING.

    Where racism is the basis upon which conceptions of systems including legal systems are built, then all systems will be inherently racist, and the allocation of benefits will be solely to the dominant group/race. To me, that's unacceptable as a fundamental article of faith upon which a society is to be built. Derrick Bell would say that I feel that way because I'm a white male and therefore part of the dominant power structure. I say Derrick Bell is full of blueberry muffins.

    Not every black person in America sides with Obama and Eric Holder. I think many want equal rights,not more anger and hate. Right now,most blacks would probably feel terrible that the black community has people like Farrakhan,Wright,and Bell. People like this should be treated with the same contempt that many in the white community have for David Duke. But as long as people like that have their microphones,people of good will of all races will have a much rougher time of it.

    You appear to have missed what I was trying to convey. A message of hope and the love of God. I don't hate or blame white people. I love them! You seem quite racially paranoid and full of hate. Are you? I've made a complete transformation politically and spiritually from 40 yrs ago so there is hope for a racist hate mongering fool like you . You sound like a ranting idiot.
