Professor Henry Louis Gates -- Just Some White Guy
I guess there's not that much money in White Studies

Henry Louis Gates -- Portait of a self-loathing creep.

God bless The American Thinker. Here's a bit of an article I think is well worth the read.

And I have a neat lil' suprise I've uncovered at the end of this post.

Impersonating a Victim
By W. R. Wansley

This past March 29th, Professor Henry Louis Gates was being interviewed in front of a small group by Walter Isaacson on C-SPAN's Book TV. Thirty-three minutes into the discussion about his new book on Lincoln, Professor Gates began a detailed account of his own genealogy. He said that in doing so he had discovered he was about "50% white". He said that this was quote, "To my astonishment and horror...".

He continued by saying that he had subsequently sent his DNA off to be tested. This time, upon finding out he was "57% white", he said again, "to my horror .... I was becoming more white by the minute". To this Gates, Isaacson and everyone else there chuckled.

Something tells me that if Mr. Isaacson had said that he also had sent his DNA off and found that to his "astonishment and horror" he was 57% black, no one would chuckle, least of all the Professor of African American Studies at Harvard, Dr. Gates.

This diminutive man is the epitome of intellectual elitism. He goes on book tours touting books he has written. He lectures at symposiums on race. He travels for pleasure. He is vaunted and toasted where ever he goes. He loves to talk about where he dines and drops a "Martha's Vineyard" or the like, in conversation here and there. Except for his being slightly handicapped -- he walks with a cane -- he is living a charmed life. He is embraced by his mostly lily-white fellow liberal elites. He makes a good living -- inside work with no heavy lifting.

Immune to embarrassment he continues undaunted. When he is asked by the officer to step outside, Gates articulately replies, "I'll step outside with yo'-mama!" The words of his repartee ring hollow -- even pathetic.
And funny too -- but alas I am laughing at him not with him. What a joke.

Gates must believe using such colloquialisms as "yo' mama" gives him some sort of black victimhood authenticity. What a fool. In reality, he is a member of the American aristocratic class. As a victim, he is an imposter.
While we're at it, check out the video here (they disabled embedding) and then go to 2:22 into the video. You'll hear this phony say "...do what standard PBS documentaries do when they're addressing the Black world, which is they get some White guy to write it, and then they get Denzel or Morgan to read it, you know, with their voice-over, and that's not me..."
Ummm... guess what? 57% means you're a majority of. And that means you're that "White guy" that you despise so much.

Gates hosted a whole series on PBS, so who is he to complain, unless he wants a total monopoly over the subject?

I just love those measures of "whiteness."

Damn, he's whiter than Obama and Tiger!

Hell, he might be whiter than me!

An "oh by the way:"

Walter Isaacson also wrote a first rate bio of Benjamin Franklin that I highly recommend to the cave dwellers and visitors. History and religion are my principal reading interests, with the occasional "degenerate" foray into Sci Fi when I need a break from more serious subjects.
