Only racist when white people do it.

A prominent Ivy-League professor denounced Columbus Day and mocked those who celebrate it byreleasing a list of individuals he deems are the “15 most overrated white people” on Monday.
Marc Lamont Hill, Associate Professor of English Education at Columbia University, wrote that the holiday is one of America’s “most bizarre cultural rituals” and that he finds it perplexing people “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,” he wrote in his article published on the Huffington Post.
The list includes Elvis Presley, Ronald Reagan, Babe Ruth, William Shakespeare, Tim Tebow, among others.
“Elvis didn’t write his own songs (despite taking credit for them), barely played the guitar, and was a worse actor than the entire cast of Belly,” wrote Hill.
“Despite being a cheap facsimile of Little Richard, he is still known as the ‘King of Rock ‘n Roll.’ Only in America,” he added.
