Obama was presented to us as a “Professor of Constitutional Law.” Actually, he was a part-time adjunct, not a professor, who taught race-based classes, not Con Law.
In the spring of 1994 he taught a class called “Current Issues in Racism and the Law”
The syllabus lists the topics as “Discussion of Reconstruction and Jim Crow,” “Discussion of Black Response,” and “Discussion of Civil Rights/Backlash.”
Student discussion topics suggested by Obama include, “The All-Black, All-Male School,” “Interracial Adoptions,” “Racial Gerrymandering,” “Race and the Criminal Justice System,” “Racial Bias in the Media,” “Welfare Policy and Reproductive Freedom,” “Affirmative Action,” and “Reparations.”
For the slavery reparations discussion, Obama posed sample questions, “Do such proposals have any realistic chance of working their way through the political system?” and “Would there be any legal impediments to such a broadly-conceived reparations policy?”
Another of his classes was called “Race, Racism, and the Law.”
