The 15 Most Overrated White People

Marc Lamont Hill, Huffington Post, October 8, 2012

Today, our nation engages in one of its most bizarre cultural rituals: the celebration of Columbus Day as a national holiday. Although history proves that Christopher Columbus was an immoral treasure hunter who merely stumbled upon a region that had already been “discovered” by indigenous non-whites, we continue to praise the vicious conquistador as a hero.

To honor the true spirit of Columbus Day, I have created my own list of overrated white people. Of course, this list is not exhaustive, as there are countless other White people who are equally underwhelming.


Ronald Reagan—You can’t have a conversation with a Republican without hearing Reagan’s name invoked as the patron saint of American politics. As a result, Ronald Reagan moves closer and closer to the Mount Rushmore of our public imagination with each passing year. How easily we forget that Reagan was largely responsible for shutting down mental hospitals, bloating the military, shrinking benefits for the needy, sparking mass incarceration, and declaring ketchup a vegetable for our children’s school lunches.

Justin Bieber—Sure, the kid can sing and dance. But is he better than dozens of black R&B singers? Nope.

Donald Trump—The Donald was always obnoxious, but he dipped to new lows this year by jumping on the Birther train. But that alone doesn’t make him overrated. Just racist and dumb. No, Trump is overrated because people actually look to the self-important hack for legitimate political insight. The only thing more inflated than Trump’s intellectual value is his net-worth, which is nothing close to the “many billions” he alleges.


Tim Tebow—At best, Tebow is a 2nd or 3rd string player. Sure, he’s led his team to some amazing 4th quarter come-from-behind victories. But that’s usually because his crappy play over the first 3 quarters put his team behind. Tebow’s celebrity—despite the fact that he couldn’t beat out mediocre Mark Sanchez for a starting spot—proves an old football axiom: Black men throw interceptions; White men are “gunslingers.”


William Shakespeare—There’s no doubt that Shakespeare has a rightful place in the Western literary canon. Unfortunately, thanks to sycophantic critics and narrow-minded educational systems, Shakespeare is the only person who seems to matter to the average person. Billy’s hulking presence in the Western literary imagination has led to the marginalization of other incredible writers of his era, such as Kyd, Middleton and Webster, whose work merits equal if not greater attention. Also, as a result of his deification, we ignore the fact that many aspects of Shakespeare’s work—such as the writing in Hamlet or the generally narrow range of female roles in his plays—just aren’t that awesome.


The Whole NHL (except Wayne Simmonds)—Has anyone noticed that the whole season is about to be canceled? Nope, didn’t think so.

Bill Clinton—Despite bombing Africa and the Middle East regularly, approving the Welfare Reform Bill, Prison Litigation Reform Act, and “three strikes” legislation, Black folk regularly regard Clinton as a messianic figure. He may have been better than Bush, but Slick Willie was far from a savior.

Eminem—Without question, Marshall Mathers is a dope MC. His first two LPs (particularly the second) will go down as classics and his latest releases, Recovery and Bad Meets Evil, are some of the best albums in recent years. Still, the “genius” and “greatest of all time” labels are too quickly attached to Em at the expense of more significant old school rappers like Kool G Rap and Big Daddy Kane, as well as contemporaries like Black Thought, Kool Keith, Jean Grae and Pharoah Monche.


Sarah Palin—Although her political career is likely over, Palin continues to be a powerbroker among Right wing extremists. Despite her lack of knowledge of policy or strategy, Palin is still a go-to pundit on conservative media outlets. No one destroys the myth of white supremacy more effectively than Sarah Palin.

        Couldn’t agree more.  Mark Lamont Hill is a classic leftist pseudo intellectual with a string of social science degrees.

          These are some warning signs that that you have turned into a terrorist who will soon kill your co-workers, according to the U.S. military. You’ve recently changed your “choices in entertainment.” You have “peculiar discussions.” You complain about bias,” you’re “socially withdrawn” and you’re frustrated with “mainstream ideologies.” Your “Risk Factors for Radicalization” include “Social Networks” and “Youth.”

      • Here is a photo of the “author,” taken from his own website:

        If all the White people on Earth disappeared overnight, he wouldn’t know how to fix his now-useless bluetooth iPhone earjack. He would just have to wear it as jewelry. Within a few months, he, along with the rest of his compatriots would be nude, throwing pointed sticks at one another.

        He forgot to have Bach on his list of overrated Whites. Young Jeezy is WAY more talented than Bach. Isn’t that right, Mr. Hill

      Great list. There are obviously many more we could add. But if I had to add just one, my pick would be Michael Jackson. 

      Mediocre dancer. Bad singer. (Pun intended)

  • Puggg

    Reagan:  I kind of agree.  Republican fawning over Reagan is getting to be as old and obnoxious as Al Bundy reliving his four touchdown game.  People have selective memories.

    Tebow:  Hill forgets that a white wide receiver is a “possession receiver,” black ones are “great athletes” (no matter how many passes they drop)

    Shakespeare:  Sure, he overshadowed a lot of good contemporaries, Ben Johnson being an example he didn’t cite.  But even one mediocre contemporary of Shakespeare that Shakespeare overshadowed beats all of black Africa.

    Eminem:  I concede.  You can have him.

    • The__Bobster

      Eminem is White? You couldn’t tell from his actions.

      • Puggg

        The Hill clod says that Shakespeare is overrated because he overshadowed so many contemporaries.  That wouldn’t make Shakespeare overrated, foo.

        Is Joe Montana overrated because nobody remembers Neil Lomax?

        • The highly acclaimed pornographic book author and heroin addict Alec Baldwin should not be forgotten.  Baldwin’s pornographic books are credited with forcing black males to learn to read.

          • evola33

             I think you mean James Baldwin?

          • Pelayo

            James Baldwin- Alec Baldwin. They’re both idiots.

        • Invictus_1

           I think I recall Lady MacBeath and a certain Queen in Denmark, a fierce woman who must be wooed and a number of other femme fatales in Willy’s books.  I don’t think this guy ever read one or even watched a film production of any one of his plays.

        • Pelayo

          Just because you’re able to spew out inanities at the speed of light doesn’t give you the right to mention Shakespeare’s name let alone criticize his work.  Just shut up and keep pretending to be a conveyer of knowledge.

      • He could be an Albino.

    • crystal evans

      One thing that I was surprised at with Tim Tebow is that he was not converted to a running back or another position where he could use his speed.

    • John Bonham

       I guess it’s wrong to fawn over Jefferson or Washington also , eh ?

  • Ulick

    I can’t believe that even the HuffPost ran with this article.  It’s just envy and hate that would not be printed if direcetd toward any other group other than white people.  The whole article is an exercise in a having an inferiority complex.  Half the entries are “this white guy shouldn’t be famous because black people do it better”.  For example…

    “Justin Bieber—Sure, the kid can sing and dance. But is he better than dozens of black R&B singers? Nope.”

    Who cares?  Are any of these black rappers talented?  No, they talk over music they steal from other people.  White girls like Bieber because he’s a cute guy.  That’s a lot less important in the overall scheme of things than blacks voting for incompetent, angry leaders because they’re black.

    “Tebow’s celebrity—despite the fact that he couldn’t beat out mediocre Mark Sanchez for a starting spot—proves an old football axiom: Black men throw interceptions; White men are “gunslingers”

    First, Tebow is wildly overrated, but doesn’t really throw interceptions.  Meanwhile, blacks ran to Mike Vick’s defense and treat him like a QB god even though he challenges Tebow as the most overrated player in the league and he does throw picks.

    “The Whole NHL (except Wayne Simmonds)”

    The entire NHL sucks except for the black player?  Wow, does somebody have a crazy inferiority complex.  Perhaps the worst I’ve ever seen.  Even Wayne Simmonds is probably embarrassed by this entry.  The author and the Huffington Post should be embarrassed by the entire article.  Of course, they won’t be because ant-whiteism is part of their religion.

    •  As a LA Kings fan I can tell you with 100% certainty that I was very happy the day we traded Simmonds to Killadelphia and restored our team to 100% white.

      • Puggg

        I’m surprised Hill likes Simmonds, because Simmonds was recently caught saying something “homophobic.”

        Hill dislikes Justin Bieber even though “Sure, the kid can sing and dance.”  That shows you how out of hit Hill is.  He can’t sing and dance.  Hill can’t even dislike Justin Bieber for the right reasons!

        •  Good call. the fact that Hill thinks that Beiber is a good singer and dancer shows you just how big of a moron he really is!

        • evola33

          Hill suggesting that Bieber can sing and dance is like Michael Vick throwing his dog a bone.

      • jedsrael

        Have you seen the news about Obama’s 716,000,000,000$ cut to Medicare?

        Turns out that he is cutting payments to doctors for providing services to seniors (White majority seniors), while making welfare recipients more desirable because of full payment.

        This is a race war- force doctors to reduce services for White Humanity while increasing for Diversity.

        We celebrate the little old White ladies who voted for Obama because it was “time for a change”.

    • The__Bobster

      Meanwhile, blacks ran to Mike Vick’s defense and treat him like a QB god even though he challenges Tebow as the most overrated player in the league and he does throw picks.

      Last Sunday, he chose to fumble three times instead.

    • jedsrael

      Does the FBI equate Race Realism to “preppers”?

      Seems like they should, as Race Realism is the first step prep for surviving post White privilege BRA.

      FBI adds ‘preppers’ to potential terrorists list

    • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

      To be fair, whatever one may think of the NHL, you can’t really call Wayne Simmonds an “overrated White person.” He should be so lucky.

      Mr. Hill does demonstrate his inferior African intellect quite well in that paragraph tho. If the NHL season is about to be cancelled, and no one cares, then by default they can’t be overrated, can they?

      Incidentally, hockey fans have more avenues to the game they love than do fans of some other sports. Many NHL stars will spend the lock out playing for foreign & international leagues, some of which can be viewed onlne or even televised. Others will play for their teams’ AHL, ECHL & other affiliate teams, which I can personally attest are fun to watch and a much better value to see live than the NHL is anyway.

  • Well to be fair, Justin Beiber actually looks and sounds human compared to those other R&B people and Tim Tebow actually won a playoff game against the 100% COAL BLACK defense of the Steelers.   As far as Shakespeare goes, I’m sure this author would have no trouble writing his column in iambic pentameter right?  And no Mr. Lamont Hill, iambic pentameter IS NOT a track and field event.  Of course the NHL would be overrated seeing as how it’s dominated by White people.  I suppose science and technology are also overrated given the author’s train of thought.  On Eminem, he’s just mad that the “best (c)rapper” alive is a white guy from Detroit.  No one reinforces the idea that segregation is necessary more than black “journalists.”

    Anyhow I was trying to come up with a list of 15 overrated africans, but there were just too many so I decided that ALL africans are extremely overrated.

  • Imagine douche bags like “prof” Hill going ape-shit(pardon the pun) if a prominent white person made a list of “over-rated blacks. Obama has to be number 1. Sadly, Hill is so small and obscure, he wouldn’t get a “dishonorable mention”.  Now, back to worshipping Obama as he truly keeps Blacks in “chains” of government dependance. Hit me back on your Obama Phone if you want to get back to me.

    •  My thoughts exactly, there would be barely intelligible rants from the “civil rights” activists.

    •  how could obama be an over rated black?  He’s not even black!

      • jedsrael

        He’s 100% Black Diversity.

        His White mother’s genes were transferred from the endangered list to the extinct list when he was conceived.

        • 5n4k33y3s

          That’s a popular thing to say, but the objective reality is more genetic than your emotional response.

          A half white and half black individual tends to be that much more loyal to white society than a fully black individual.

          In general, you can trust people by the degree of genetic similarity to yourself. There are aberrations. There are cases wherein your own brother would kill you, or distant stranger would be a good Samaritan.

          But in general, you can estimate trustworthiness by a glimpse of the individual lasting a tenth of a second. The whiter, the more trustworthy to the white observer.

          This doesn’t necessarily mean the individual has more integrity. Just that you can trust them more because of genetic similarity than someone whose genetic distance has their loyalty located elsewhere.

          So the lighter the mulatto, the more trustworthy they are to white society, as a general correlation of probability. Therefore, whiteness lives on in half-breeds, even in fractions.

          It’s actually important to recognize the white ancestry in half-breeds, and cultivate white identity among them. Genetic fact, refutes your emotionalism.

          • jedsrael

            Whiteness includes spirituality, which doesn’t transfer when White genes are mixed into extinction with Diversity. Mulattos are not half white- they are all mutant.

          • 5n4k33y3s

            People of mixed ancestry do not usurp the place of people of unmixed ancestry within the locus of racial identity.

            It’s pointless to do a lot of hand wringing about the idea of race mixing by its self. The issues to be concerned with are the following:

            1) Is there too much race mixing happening for sustainability of racial identity?

            2) Are men of another race mating with females of our race more than men of our race are mating with females of that other race?

            3) Are the best looking specimens (emphasis on females) of our race being “poached” for mixing?

            Talk about these specific issues and you’re focused on the real metrics of racial success or decline. But race mixing in general neither something to be condemned nor advocated.

  • I can name any one of a few dozen white scientists/mathematicians/composers/etc that have contributed more to modern society than blacks as whole.

    To honor the true spirit of Columbus Day, I have created my own list of overrated white people. Of course, this list is not exhaustive, as there are countless other White people who are equally underwhelming.
    i wonder how many brain dead white  liberals on huffington post read this and still don’t get it.

    Columbus was an immoral treasure hunter who merely stumbled upon a regionI would like to see “Marc Lamont Hill” attempt to set out in a ship the size of Columbus’s with a crude compass, no way of finding longitude… perhaps he can pick a ‘diverse’ crew of ‘people of color’.  I doubt Marc would have the guts to even sail around the harbor. 
    This is the left.. this is cultural marxism in action…
    Belittle and undermine every aspect of western culture, exhault every destructive behavior, every mediocre non white … 
    There’s no doubt that Shakespeare has a rightful place in the Western literary canon.Oh, thank you for your blessing Mr. Lamont…..

  • The author also forgot to include ABE LINCOLN!

  • Biff_Maliboo

    Well, gee. I guess I could start listing the most overrated minorities, but I’d eventually run out of internet.

    Of course he / they always like to over look the Solutrean hypothesis .  OK it’s just a theory, so far. 

    On the other hand I agree with his assessment of the other people listed.  Just ask yourself, which of the people on this list are loyal to their race? 

    • Ulick

      Solutrean is too difficult a word for most to read, never mind know the hypothesis. They read Solutrean as Soul train and start dancing.

        “civil rights activist” John Lewis – he’s been riding the ‘racism gravy train’ his whole life!

      • JohnEngelman

        Jack Johnson was a defensive boxer and a counter puncher who would spend the beginning of a boxing match analyzing his opponent’s style without being hurt. As he gained more insight into his opponent’s style he would begin to take the offensive. Finally his opponent would make a mistake and get knocked out. It takes a lot of intelligence to box like that.
        Muhammad Ali is generally considered to have been the best boxer in the history of the sport.  When he was heavyweight champion he was said to have the most recognized face in the world. Once I watched him on William Buckley’s “Firing Line.” He held his own. 

  • Someone’s got a chip on his shoulder (or is that an inferiority complex?).

    While some of these are out of left field (Justin Bieber) Shakespeare has no equal.

  • jedsrael

    The tsunami of systemic and mainstreamed anti white hate speech grows stronger and more menacing by the day.

    It would be ignored or welcomed or dismissed by the White community if we were enjoying increasing prosperity, peace, security, neighborhood safety, and hopes of a better future.

    But under these dire circumstances, it is beginning to hit a raw nerve on most of those Whites who normally would think of MLK as a saint, and it does more for us than we could for ourselves.

    Heil Hate Speech! More, more, more!

        We thought that Reconstructions I and II were hideous, but our coming Reconstruction Holocaust III, November 7, 2012 – January 19, 2013, will be truly historic and transformational.

        That right thing will so crush your White privilege, you won’t get any of it back until William Luther Pierce rises up out of the grave and says “Good Job!”

  • whiteyyyyy

    I’d like to see the black list, get someone like Jim Goad  to write it.

  • This whole meaningless text was written just to denigrate Columbus & instill white guilt. Otherwise, it’ completely bonkers.

    I could express my opinion of overrated military leaders, scientists, artists, sports people,.. but, why would I do this ? And especially in categories of race.

    Pure hatred …

    Aha, now I see. The author is Black.

  • To honor the spirit of Columbus Day I praise him for being the man who made our lives and the worthless ingrate non-white’s and self-loathing guilt-ridden white liberal’s lives possible in America.

    If they ever dare come after Columbus that’s where I draw the line in the sand.  In Latin America Columbus is even more revered even though much of the populace is made up of Euro-Indian cross breeds.  Odd that full-blooded Euro-Americans denigrate him, but nothing makes sense anymore in this Orwellian nightmare.  I don’t know whether there is a Columbus Day parade in my city but I’m seriously thinking of attending one.

  • crystal evans

    I often wonder if Eminem was successful because of the Elvis factor. A white man that sounds black? Same thing for Justin Bieber. Tim Tebow has gotten attention because of his Christian faith, not his playing ability, which has been questioned since he was at the University of Florida.

    • Puggg

      Elvis never sounded black to me.  I think this whole bit about “Elvis sounding black” (and by implication, “ripping off” black music) is a construct of black supremacists and their white shills.  They also try to do this with Jerry Lee Lewis.

      It’s the same deal where they try to pass off an Edison invention as the “real” work of one of his mulatto lab techs.

    • sarah stein

      Eminem was successful because he was Dr Dre’s little bitch.  It’s not difficult to be successful at rap,  just use words that rhyme with “ho”.  Flo, doe, roll, mo, po, etc, and be black.  The Klan don’t cotton to no white or brown folk.

      • anarchyst

        “eminem” is a n!&&#r in disguise, white man otherwise . . .”rap” is not “music” but rather “spoken word (obscenities) more akin to poorly written poetry.  Those “entertainment executives” are laughing all the way to the bank and are so proud of all the white kids buying that trash.  Their alien roots and the debasement of our culture go hand-in-hand . . .

        • The Worlds Scapegoat

           Eminem is jewish trash acting like white trash acting like black trash.

  • .

    Overrated by whom? And compared to whom?

    Most of his choices are debatable. But there’s no question that Elvis, Reagan, Shakespeare and Babe Ruth were each so outstanding at what they did that history has judged them as the best. I once argued that Elvis was overrated. But then I asked myself, “If Elvis isn’t the greatest singer of all time then who is?” But I couldn’t think of anyone. I spent hours googling “best singer” looking for suggestions. Then I spent hours listening to them singing on Youtube. There were a select few that one might argue sang as well as Elvis. But I couldn’t honestly say that any were better.

    ..narrow minded educational systems, Shakespeare is the only person who seems to matter..

    Excuse me? Shakespeare has been all but obliterated from the British educational system.
    We need more Shakespeare!

    • The main reason is that Shakespeare is quite difficult to read/comprehend. Just more of the “dumbing-down” of our education systems.

        Shakespeare in peril as Oxford rethinks English syllabus 
        By Rachel Shields and Arifa Akbar 
        Published: 30 June 2007 

        * * *

        A document seen by The Independent reveals that, for the first time, in-depth examination of the works of the Bard would no longer be compulsory for English literature undergraduates. 

        The prospect of one of England’s finest seats of learning putting less emphasis on the work of England’s most significant literary figure sent shockwaves across the worlds of the arts and academia. The idea is expected to cause further outrage among teaching staff if it is put to a vote in the autumn. 

        * * *

        Sir Peter Hall, the theatre director who founded the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1960, said he was “absolutely amazed and bewildered” by the proposal. The director, who has just begun a “Peter Hall Season” at Bath Theatre Royal, added: “That one of our leading universities should even be considering something so stupid is incredible. To know anything about Shakespeare requires a lot of time but it’s certainly the most rewarding thing that has happened in my life.” 

        * * *

        If the report’s recommendations are approved, the playwright will be added to a list of more than 25 “special authors”.

    Hill makes the case that Babe Ruth’s numbers wouldn’t have been as great if he had to face all those Negro Leagues pitchers like Satchel Page.  Even if Page would have pitched in the American League (and there was only 50% odds of that), Ruth would have only faced Page maybe 25 or so at-bats per year.  And who are we to say that Page would have been the same lights-out pitcher in the major leagues that he was in the Negro League?

    An over the hill Grover Cleveland Alexander pretty much shut down Babe Ruth in the 1926 World Series.

    • MikeofAges

       Playing under major league conditions, Paige would have been a 25-game winner at the peak of his career. But not anyone capable of the supernatural feats attributed to him in his barnstorming days. You can say the same for the other top Negro league players. They would have been top players in the majors as well. Why not? It’s baseball, not particle physics. Other Negro league players would not have made the majors. Overall, the production and statistics of the top major league players would have been about the same had baseball been integrated from the 1920s on. There was crossover between the pre WWII and post WWII eras and the best players continued to perform at the same level before and after. The people who flip the race card on this issue are a bunch of ignoramuses who know little about sports history, just like they know little about anything else. Not to mention, there have not been so many top pitchers who are African American (as opposed to Afro-Caribbean). Integration, given that it is a theoretical, would not particularly have meant better pitching in the major leagues in the era 1920 to 1941.

    I would say that there are two requirements for a writer of the first rank. First, during his life time he was popular among those of all income and educational levels. (This requirement would rule out writers like James Joyce and Ingmar Bergman). 
    Second, the writer has remained popular among the well educated. 
    William Shakespeare fulfills both requirement. Many words he coined are in common usage. When I first read Shakespeare I thought that he was a good writer, but he used too many cliches. Then I came to realize that he originated those cliches.  

    • These literary contests are boring. Suffice to say that supreme writers
      are Homer, Dante, Cervantes, Shakespeare, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Proust
      plus perhaps 2-4 others.

    Can anyone, anywhere, think of one really important black person?  I mean a black person who has towered above anyone else in a comparable field–meaning a field that is actually important to the well being and spiritual enlightenment of the human race: science, philosophy, religion, literature, art.  I didn’t think so.

    In a world of incompetents and underachievers, it would be better to pick out the 15 most underachieving or incompetent black people.  Now that would be an interesting list, but the competition would be very fierce, and it might be impossible to narrow the field.

In the book, Willers dies a snivelling coward in the wilderness, despite all of his good intentions. Further, his friends, ie Galt, Taggart, D’anconia, etc., pretty much disregars’ him, as they consider him amiable but intellectually inferior, and thus not of great value to them.

  • JohnEngelman

    The enduring legacy of Ronald Reagan has been to convince most voters, and certainly most white voters, that they can have the government they want – especially an expensive military – without paying for it. 
    During the campaign of 1980 candidate Reagan said that he could cut taxes, raise defense spending, and balance the budget by 1983 (if not sooner) without cutting popular middle class entitlements. All he would need to do would be to cut “waste, fraud, and abuse.” 
    George H.W. Bush was right when he labeled this scam, “Voodoo Economics.” Unfortunately, when Ronald Reagan choose him as a running mate he lacked the integrity to refuse.
    Ronald Reagan tripled the national debt. There was more job creation per year under Jimmy Carter, and less unemployment.

          “There is not a truth existing which I fear or would wish unknown to the whole world.”
          – Thomas Jefferson
          In order to dislike my posts one must dislike the truth. My arguments are fact based. I document my assertions. I know what I am talking about.
          When praising Orientals I often quote Professor J. Philippe Rushton, who has spoken at six American Renaissance conferences.
          I also quote Jared Taylor’s “The Color of Crime,” “Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.”

          • I can quote Jared Taylor’s “The Color of Crime” too:

            “Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white…ASIANS ARE 9 TIMES MORE LIKELY.”  Well, looky here !
            and just the other day he also said:
            “We’re always being told to celebrate diversity and I think diversity is a source of tension”.
             You got that  John Chinaman? 
            The latter is exactly what you’re doing every time you bring up mongols on AR, and you’ve just rested Jared Taylor’s case perfectly once again.
            This website isn’t for, nor was created to “praise” mongols but to claim and discuss our WHITE identity. 
            Your beloved mongols are not Whites, but an inherent part of the diversity canard imposed on all of us in our daily lives.  They are just as poisonous to our racial integrity.  The fact that they commit less violent crime is IRRELEVANT since they aren’t supposed to be living with us in the first place. 
            Do you even get a clue how illegitimate that argument is to begin with for Christ’s sake ?
            Furthermore, like the youth gang statistic above, millions of mongols are now systematically taking jobs, college admissions, neighborhood school spots, government contracting, social security benefits, and housing from Native White Americans as their population has completely exploded the last 20 years:
            “Although Chinese immigration to the United States dates back to the 19th century, the Chinese immigrant population grew rapidly during the 1990s and 2000s.  Today there are almost as many native-born US citizens who claim Chinese ancestry as there are Chinese immigrants.”
            And that’s not even counting all the industrial spying, student cheating, tax fraud,  illegal gambling, prostitution, sweat shops, drug trafficking, illegal immigrants, public health violations and all the rest that goes on behind close doors in every single mongol neighborhood in this country.
            Lots of us here are from NY and California pal, and your wasting your time if you think you’re going to change or shape anybody’s mind.  We all ALREADY know that the opportunistic and corrupt mentality of your beloved mongols is just as a menace to WHITE AMERICA as all the others non-Whites.

            By the way, there’s a village in asia that has an opening for ya since you like them so much… 
            A village in asia is definitely missing you, that’s for sure !

            What about their violent extortion gangs in the various Chinatowns, little Saigons, etc? Whites never had gangs. We didn’t even know that that was until blacks and immigrants brought that criminal culture to us. Yes, I know there are some nice Asians who study and work hard..but their cafes and shops in their communities are riddled with bullet holes. They bring us drive shootings like the rest of the “diversity”.  Whites may have barroom brawls and some domestic violence, BUT WE DO NOT HAVE GANGS AND DRIVE-BY SHOOTINGS.

      Ronald Reagan tripled the national debt.

      The president isn’t a dictator. He can’t order congress to cut spending. Congress is responsible for government spending.

      “There was more job creation per year under Jimmy Carter, and less unemployment.”

      When the US is headed into a recession it loses millions of jobs and when the US is in recovery it creates millions of jobs. There is going to be a recession every few years regardless of whose in office. It’s part of the natural business cycle.

      That doesn’t mean that the president or congress has no influence. But it’s more complicated than just looking at job numbers. What you really need to look at is who is pushing sound economic principles. And ignore the natural fluctuations of the market — with an emphasis on “natural”.

      • JohnEngelman

        George Will acknowledged in a column that every budget the Reagan administration sent to Congress had a huge deficit built into it. 
        David Stockman admitted that it was never possible to cut taxes, raise defense spending, and balance the budget without cutting or eliminating domestic spending programs most Republican voters would have insisted on keeping at their existing spending levels.
        When Jimmy Carter was president an average of 2,600,000 jobs were created every year. Under Ronald Reagan that declined to 2,000,000.
        The highest unemployment under Jimmy Carter was 7.8 percent. The highest under Ronald Reagan was 10.8 percent. The highest under Barack Obama has been 10.1 percent. 

        • anarchyst

          Mr. Engelman–you need a civics lesson in how our US government is supposed to work.
          The house of representatives holds the “purse strings”.  The president cannot spend a dime without congress’ approval . . .
          As for the unemployment rate, the REAL unemployment rate is closer to 15%.
          You see, those who exhaust their unemployment insurance benefits are no longer counted as being “unemployed”.

          • JohnEngelman

            The president’s administration prepares the budget and delivers it to Congress. Congress adds and subtracts and sends the budget back to the president who can sign it or veto it. 
            Ronald Reagan’s economic policies were essentially dishonest. Republican economic policies have been dishonest ever since. 

          • .

            When the president sends his budget to Congress it’s more like a list of suggestions. It’s not binding. Congress can do whatever it wants… and usually does. That’s why presidents are always begging for the line item veto. So they can veto all the pork that Congress stuck in there.

    OK..two can play at this game. But I don’t think they give me a whole page…so I’l pick my favorite: The most Over rated “Negro” in history. Coca buttered Boy…Obama

    “T”here is not a single Obama voter anywhere in the land who believes that another four years of him will make this country better. Not a single one from coast to coast. No, what they believe is that he will make the country a worse place for those people that they hate. That he will have four more years to sink their ideas deeper in the earth, regardless of how many families go hungry and how many fathers kill themselves because they can no longer take care of their families.

    What they believe is that Obama will grant their group more special privileges and the rest of the country can go to hell.”

    “In his DNC keynote address in 2004, Obama said, “There is no Black America or White America or Latino America or Asian America, there is just the United States of America.” And now he has completely disavowed it. He isn’t campaigning to lead the United States of America, instead he is running for the presidency of a dozen little Americas, Trayvon Martin America, Abortion America, Illegal Alien America, Sharia America, Gay Marriage America, Starbucks America and any others you can think of. And if he can collect enough of these little Americas together, then he may get the privilege of running the United States of America into the ground for another four years.”“Obama has never been the President of the United States of America.

    He has been the president of Washington D.C., of Wall Street and of Solyndra. He has been the President of Green America and of Chicago. He has been the President of Warren Buffett, George Soros, Bill Gates, Penny Pritzker and James Crown.

    He is the President of George Clooney, Harvey Weinstein and Anne Hathaway. And now, facing disaster, he still isn’t running to be President of a country, but of a dozen little countries with money from freshly bailed out Green America and Wall Street, not to mention Hollywood.”“The Obama campaign is not accidentally divisive. It did not stumble into divisiveness. It is not even divisive as a byproduct of its real aims.

    Divisiveness is its aim. Divisiveness is the only way that a divisive administration can hold on to power. The anger and the violence are not an accident, they are the whole point. Set one group against another, feed the hate, massage the grievances and very soon there is no longer a nation but a handful of quarreling groups being roped into a mutual alliance to reelect their lord protector whose appeal is that of the outsider becoming the insider.”

    And so…as Obama goes…the US becomes another cruddy Chicago, or a Philadelphia, A Trenton, A Newark, A Detroit…and a larger Libya or Liberia….of warring tribes with his approval.

  • Off Topic but perhaps of interest to some of you

    Tomorrow at my school Jose Antonio Vargas will be speaking. If you unaware with who he is a quick Google search will reveal him as a former illegal immigrant leading a campaign called “Define American”. 

    Here is a quote from the event email I received:

    Vargas is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, as well as an undocumented immigrant from the Philippines. Since ‘coming out of the shadows’ as an undocumented immigrant in the New York Times, Vargas still stands strong and has gone on to create the ‘Define American’ campaign which seeks to raise awareness about immigration issues. Come hear him speak and discuss his TIME Magazine “Not Legal Not Leaving” article. This is an amazing chance to learn more about this important election issue. And as always, there will be FREE FOOD!

    I’m not sure if he will be open to questions (though the tidbit about discussing gives some hope) but I could use some help coming up with some good ones to bring. Of course, I already have a few in mind but I would greatly appreciate any contributions or suggestions.

    A lot of us realized that back in ’71 when Affirmative Action came in, we pretended that the inadequate can make the grade while ignoring glaring deficiencies was a prescription for disaster down the line. The proponents of the policy promised that no unqualified people would be given a pass. They lied. Once the alleged protections were enshrined in law, there was no doubt that the unqualified would not only be admitted, they would be promoted until their incompetence outed them, and by then, the allegations of ‘racism’ would be invoked to stymie any efforts to remove them.

    mark lamont hill and the rest of his bantu race is overrated.  Compare Bach or Beethoven to “snoop dog” or whatever tribal supported “rap” or “hip hop” culturally degrading garbage is foisted on American culture.

      I have to assume that you left South African president Jacob Zuma off the list because of his talented rendition of “Kill the White Man” with the African National Congress filling in as his back-up singers and dancers.

      Otherwise, he’s not a very good leader although I believe he is a leading supporter of the African medical community’s virgin-rape AIDs cure research.

  • bluffcreek1967

    I sort of agree with Ronald Reagan being overrated. He was a good man in many respects, and he came at a time when our country really needed him. He made us proud to be Americans again. But I refuse to use a holy hush when speaking his name. His biggest mistake, in my opinion, was when he gave a huge amnesty to Mexicans (and others) in 1986. Even then, before I was fully race-conscious, I knew it was a bad idea.

    Here’s a few of my own overrated Black people:

    1. Jay-Z: Aside from just being plain butt-ugly, he can’t sing worth a damn! No, really, he can’t sing at all! He actually sounds like he’s doing his best to sound as monotone and disinterested in his lyrics as possible. And let’s be honest: If it wasn’t for his undeserved fame and money, would Beyonce have ever had any interest in this guy?

    2. Beyonce: I think she’s a pretty gal, but way overrated as a singer. She’s not even that good as a dancer (somewhat stiff in my opinion), and most of her moves revolve around tribal jiggs.

    3. Morgan Freeman: He’s not a bad actor, and he’s not the type of Black guy whom Whites feel instantly threatened by. He also seems relatively intelligent. But many of us are tired of seeing him in almost every movie as the wise sage, ready to enlighten the dull-minded Whites who surround him.

    4. Jesse Jackson: He’s praised by many as a great speaker, but he’s actually very hard to understand. He literally sounds like he has marbles in his mouth. His political views and ideas are utterly worthless, and the best he’s ever done is come up with simplistic rhymes and slogans.

    5. Al Sharpton: I’m still in disbelief that this foolish troll has received the amount of media attention and respect that he has! It utterly baffles me – although one can never overestimate the intelligence of Blacks and the MSM. He’s not merely hard on the eyes, he’s also hard to listen to (gruff, angry voice). There’s nothing soft, irenic about this guy and he’s always out of his league when compared to other political commentators.   

    6. Marc Lamont Hill: In fairness to him, he’s somewhat articulate for a Black guy and I have no doubt that he’s relatively intelligent too (in spite of his liberal views). But he’s always reaching too far when stating his case, which makes his biased opinions so readily apparent. He also talks too fast making it appear that he’s in some desparate race to convince his listeners. Who knows, maybe he’s trying to convince himself? FOX and other media outlets give him a hearing because he’s a handsome man, has a bunch of soft-science degrees, he’s a professor, and he’s half-way articulate. But he’s a psuedo-intellectual. Compare him to Thomas Sowell and one will immediately see the difference.

    7. Cornel West: This guy’s just an old nutty professor. People (namely, Whites) treat him like he’s some profound thinker, but he’s a simpleton who dazzles his naive students with his big words and rhetorical skills. Like Marc Lamont Hill, he’s another psuedo-intellectual. But, at heart, he’s angry and resentful of Whites. He broods that more people haven’t taken him seriously, but why should they?  

    8. Barack Obama: This guy is perhaps the most overrated. Four years in Office has proven him to be utterly incompetent to govern our nation, unable to think on his feet without the help of a teleprompter, horribly lazy and a poor work ethic, clueless as to how to improve our nation’s economy, and deeply self-absorbed. He’s the perfect guy for a nation that’s been raised on political-correctness, multi-culturalism and many hours of the MSM.

  • TonyWestfield

    I clicked on the original article at Huffington Post.  By the end of the article, something didn’t feel right — it seemed too “busy” to me…too crowded.  That was the clue.  I started counting.

    There are 16 “most overrated” on Professor Hill’s list, not 15 as the title advertises.

    Again, SIXTEEN on the professor’s list.

    This guy Hill is an idiot.  He can’t even count — or he can’t proofread.  In either case, doesn’t this wee tiny fact say all that one can say about Marc Lamont Hill, eminent black man, Columbia professor, scholar, commentator, “doctor”?

  • refocus

    Ok let me add Henry Ford.

    He is over rated because his accomplishments were so great as to be fantastic and light years beyond the comprehension of most.

    Here see this:

    • anarchyst

      Those of the “tribe” would argue that Henry Ford was not a great man . . . they would be wrong . . . he was correct in his perception of the “tribe”.  After all, it was those of the “tribe” that insisted that capitalism would be destroyed by his paying his employees $5.00 per day when the average wage was approximately $1.50 per day.

  • jedsrael

    Since you were on surveillance video, you should have made several gestures trying to wave him off, so you’d have plausability in court.

  • jedsrael

    What he’s really trying to say is that all White people are overrated, beacuse they all have White privilege, which gives them an UnFair advantage, thus they are all overrated.

    When you hear “White privilege” as a stereotype, you are hearing that “White people have privilege because they discriminate against people of color, so Diversity should punish them.

    To the Diversity, “White privilege” is a war cry, call to action, a battle rally.  They see White privilege as orgainzed Whiteness, and they see us all as members of the White Student Union via the membership requirement of our White privilege:

    In a television interview, Professor Richard Vatz and Vice President Teri Hall of Towson University spoke out against the WSU. Dr. Vatz said, “When you have a group that calls itself a ‘White Student Union,’ their only purpose is generally hostility toward those who are non-white.”

    Got that? Diversity says our ONLY PURPOSE is to hurt them, which means they can take preemptive action to prevent us from right to life, liberty, property, and happiness.

    They see racial politics as a war. Why don’t we? Does our Whiteness blind us to the harsh realities of race?

In other words it’s “goot” for it. It helps prevent “prostrate” cancer and ergo helps the bruthas reproduce those little welfare checks that those baby mommas punch out like coins from a hot slot.

  • Of course. The only thing I find irritating about Shakespeare – which is not his fault- is almost lunatic idolatry of people like Harold Bloom (in his “Shakespeare: the Invention of the Human”). But Kyd, or even Marlowe or Jonson … are far below for anyone who has read anything beyond comics.

    • anmpr1

       I give Bloom a lot of credit for recognizing Shakespeare’s genius.  After all, he could be pushing Niel Simon or Israel Horovitz.

      • No, he couldn’t. I’ve read not few Bloom’s books & it’s evident he’s madly in love with Shakespeare, perhaps from his adolescence. There is something unhealthy about his obsession with the Bard, and his insights are not very illuminating: for instance, the contention that Shakespeare’s persons change thanks to overhearing themselves on stage. This is plain dumb, since “vocal” contemplation is a technical necessity for a theater. And that’s Bloom’s only explanation.

        Don’t get me wrong, I place Shakespeare among the very greatest writers in the world, but there are -maybe- 4-8 other imaginative writers who wrote in Greek, Italian, French, Russian, German,… who offer as much as him- just a bit different “menu”. To be completely honest- my opinion is that there is no single “greatest achiever” in any field of human endeavor (arts, sciences, humanities, technology, military leadership, ..). There are always 5+ more or less equal contenders.

        • anmpr1

          Sure he could.  A certain blood type is always thicker than anything else.  That was my point.  So for that, going against the grain, I give him credit.  Unless, of course, their is a peculiar neurosis that Bloom manifests…something like Woody Allen.  I guess anything is possible.  Hell, even that other Bloom’s friend, Stephen Dedalus, had some queer views on the Bard.  So who knows?

  • The list of over-rated negroes is very long so I’ll just keep it to 10:

    1.) MLK who had himself killed so he could look like a Christian martyr.  Just why was a camera reading to take a pic at the exact same moment he was killed?

    2.) Rosa Park: planned on getting arrested and was not the first negress to refuse to give up their seats.  Not a hero in the least.

    3.) Obama: everything in the last four years.

    4.) Every rap star just for being talentless, lazy slobs

    5.) Jesse Jackson: no divinity degree or church.  Has committed adultery for decades and bought his mistress a home that cost 700,000$ 20 years ago.  He didn’t earn the money.

    6.) Al Sharpton: no divinity degree, no real church.  Has been sued and lost dozens of times but never paid a dime. 

    7.) ‘Rev’ Wright; a treasonous who lives like a god in an all white neighborhood.

    8.) Louis Farrakhan: another hypocrite that lives in luxury -and also in an all white neighborhood

    9.) Cornell West: wouldn’t even been teaching at community if he was human.  Instead he is the dept chair of worthless, black studies at Yale.

    10.) Henry Gates, see above.

    • Shakespeare’s influence on the performing arts is enormous – no other writer of any race or ethnicity comes within 100,000 light years.Virtually every actor and actress worth their salt has performed in a play written by Shakespeare.

      When the film “Shakespeare in Love” won the Oscar for best picture, in 1999 (I believe), I thought then – and still do – that it was Hollywood’s way of paying homage to the man who was responsible for their livelihoods. He was the reason they were there.

    Actually, now that PMLH has graciously given us his list of the most overrated white people, I think he needs to complete his body of work and provide us with a list of the most exceptional white people.  He really needs to cover all bases by providing us with his list of most overrated black folks and then his most exceptional black folks list.
