As part of Chairman Zero's lifelong quest to avoid meaningful employment in the private sector, B. Hussein Obama taught a few law courses at the University of Chicago. One way to describe a person who teaches in a university setting is "professor." But according to Charles J. Ogletree, a Harvard professor, if you refer to PBO as "Professor Obama," that's racist.
Ogletree, founding and executive director of the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice, says he sees the "professor" label as a thinly veiled attack on Obama's race. Calling Obama "the professor" walks dangerously close to labeling him "uppity," a term with racial overtones that has surfaced in the political arena before, Ogletree said.
