For years, Obots claimed that “Obama” was a Constitutional Law Professor” at U of C. Well, that was debunked. Turned out he was a part time, temporary guest lecturer, viewed by the staff as lazy and incompetent. So, what did he “teach?” One supposes that he never got around to Article II, Section 1.
I found this from Don Fredrick, author of The Obama Timeline, in this comment on Amazon:
For the record, the classes Obama taught at U of C seem to have had more to do with race than law. From The Obama Timeline:The syllabus for a class Obama teaches in the spring of 1994, “Current Issues in Racism and the Law,” covers the topics, “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 poses such sample questions as, “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?”) Required reading assigned by Obama include works by Derrick Bell, his critical race theory professor at Harvard. If most of the classes taught by Obama are in a similar vein (another of his classes was called “Race, Racism, and the Law”), he should be considered a teacher of race and the law, rather than a professor of constitutional law. His choice of subject matter suggests that the issue of race affects every aspect of his life
