Professor (the new 'N' word?)

Wow, just wow! Did you realize how Racist a term like Professor has been used?

Me neither... I guess it helps to be involved in Race and Justice to draw these kinds of conclusions..

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.

Amazing. (source)
