In November 1985, the Harvard Law Review published an article by Derrick
Bell that was a "classic" in the development of Critical Race Theory. The
article was edited by then-student Elena Kagan, and was cited by Prof. Charles
Ogletree in support of her nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court by President
Barack Obama in 2010. The article makes clear that Critical Race Theory sees the
U.S. Constitution as a form of "original sin"--a view later embraced by Obama as
a state legislator, and reflected in his actions and appointments. The following
is an excerpt from the non-fiction portion of the article; much of what follows
is a fictional story that Bell intended as a parable of racial "fantasy." (99
