Ellis Washington
Nigger manifesto
By Ellis Washington

By English potter and abolitionist, Josiah Wedgewood (1787)
ironically the grandfather of Charles Darwin

My second birth occurred exactly 37 years ago on Aug. 8, 1976 when I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior; therefore it is fitting that I should launch my new website on this transcendent occasion. Ellis Washington Report is dead... behold, a Nigger Manifesto!


A young Michelle Obama née Robinson in her 1988 senior thesis at Harvard Law School argued for raced-based faculty hiring practices to be implemented to raise the number of Black faculty at law schools across America. Michelle Obama argued that "the faculty's decision to distrust and ignore non-traditional qualities in choosing and granting tenure law professors merely reinforces racist and sexist stereotypes."

The tragic irony and hypocrisy of First Lady Obama's critique begs this singular question – Could I, a Black conservative intellectual, be the type of scholar Ms. Obama's new race-based faculty hiring paradigm would ever hire at her alma mater, Harvard Law School? Could I, could America trust progressives like Michelle, like Barack and the left who dominate the Academy use "social justice" to hire Black conservative academics in proportion to their numbers in society? No! Because we aren't "authentic" Blacks, we're Niggers to them, thus the reason why I am compelled to write our Manifesto.

Leftists like Barack and Michelle Obama hide their hatred of their fellow conservative Blacks behind their racist liberal worldview. The Democratic Socialist Party including Barack and Michelle Obama have nothing but utter contempt for conservatism, a venal disgust that borders on obsession against Black conservatives (e.g., Justice Clarence Thomas, Rep. Allen West, Alan Keyes, Judge Janice Rogers Brown, Pastor Levon Yuille, etc.) Black conservatives are the catalyst to collapse the entire Democratic Socialist Party upon the weight of its own immorality. That's why we are pariahs in America. That's why extremist measures are used by the Left to isolate and marginalize Black conservatives. Race was merely one of a multitude of Machiavellian means to an end. It was always about power, ideology, philosophy and propagating a militant, evolution atheist worldview throughout every American institution in society. Echoing the tactics of Fabian Socialism (gradualism), I call it the Darwin-Marx-Gramsci long march through the institutions.


I was born for War! For 30 years I have worked indefatigably, I have labored assiduously to build a relevant resume; a unique curriculum vitae as an iconoclastic law scholar zealous for Natural Law, natural rights, and the original intent of the constitutional Framers – a Black conservative intellectual born in the ghettos of Detroit, abandoned by his father at 18 months, who came of age during the Detroit Race Riots of 1967... an American original. My task, to expressly transcend the ubiquitous slave chains of affirmative action – but to what end? On the one hand, White liberals/progressives who dominate and control college/university faculty hiring and student enrollment collectively spend billions annually traversing heaven and earth in their insatiable lust for Black athletes, despite the fact that many of these so-called "student-athletes" are functionally illiterate and addicted to steroids.

Yet as a Black intellectual what is my reward for 30 years of meticulous research, a prolific publication record on several continents, in eight or more languages? What is my reward for daring to leave the Democrat Party plantation, for rejecting the zeitgeist of Hegelian dialectical materialism, Marxist socialism, John Stuart Mill liberalism, Wilsonian progressivism, Orwellian Groupthink over these past three decades? My reward is that in a de jure (legal) and de facto (unofficial) sense I am effectively blacklisted by White and Black progressive academics inside the Academy. Yet instead of being hung from a tree like my forefathers of bygone eras, I have been subjected to what my intellectual father Justice Clarence Thomas called, a "high-tech lynching." Therefore, my reward for being an uppity Negro is to be blacklisted as an enemy of the State...The Spook who sat by the Door.

I am a blacklisted Black conservative intellectual despite the fact that my resume has transcended the racist limitations and lowest-common-denominator parochialism of affirmative action. For example, before I completed my first semester of law school (Sept.-Dec. 1991) I had already served as a Staff Editor on the Michigan Law Review (May-Aug. 1989) editing a dozen or more scholarly articles (several as the primary editor) and completed the manuscripts on two future law review articles I authored myself. I also served as a law clerk at the Sixty-Plus Elder Law Clinic (Sept.-Dec. 1991), and the Rutherford Institute (Dec. 1991-Aug. 1992).

For all three positions I bested all the top-tier second and third year law students who were my competition. Furthermore, I came to Harvard GSAS the same year Barack Obama (1988), and first attended law school there in Jan. 1989, 4 months after Obama began his legal studies, yet I made law review 2 years before Obama's contrived "historical" achievement of becoming the first Black President of the Harvard Law Review. While his was an affirmative action appointment, I earned my law review appointment as Editor on the Michigan Law Review literally from off the streets – without a law class, without any prior legal training or legal experience, without any academic mentoring by any law professors.

Nevertheless, instead of being welcomed into the Academy as an equal, my prolific scholarly output over 30 years has been mocked, marginalized, slandered, and scrupulously ignored by the academic community. My honor, my oeuvre, my career effectively murdered!... hung (if you will) from a metaphorical tree by the White liberal/progressive establishment who wield cultural hegemony over every aspect of society including education at all levels; dominating and ruthlessly controlling all endeavors to teach at any of America's colleges, universities, and law schools. We conservative scholars, academics, and intellectuals have no home to go to in our futile, Sisyphus-like search for tenured faculty positions. When we endeavor, we are discriminated against, ignored, mocked, summarily rebuffed, and quickly learn that we are faced with the ubiquitous, chilling, yet invisible sign above every faculty inquiry – NO CONSERVATIVES NEED APPLY!

Paradoxically, even at so-called Christian, Catholic, Jewish, conservative, evangelical, independent, and the few universities, law schools, even Think Tanks that still aspire to teach "Natural Law" which is America's original constitutional philosophy, all seemingly fail to either value the need for doctrinaire conservative scholars to preserve so-called "ideological balance," nor make any good faith, systematic efforts to employ conservative academics at America's higher educational institutions beyond mere token numbers because these institutions are controlled by the Left also.

Why do White liberals, who comprise the overwhelming majority of the Democratic Socialist Party, including college administrators, presidents, deans, and faculty, allow this invidious racism to be perpetrated against Black conservatives on all of America's college, university, and law school campuses? My answer came from the Chair of the University of Southern California School of Journalism who confessed – "they [liberals] hire themselves." As the gatekeepers of all societal institutions, all education is controlled by the Left and Progressives via cultural hegemony and through state and federal mandates. All education in America is effectively dominated by socialist unions, national organizations like the NEA, AFT, ABA, the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) and hundreds of other leftist groups mandating "national regulations," "national education standards" and uniform federal guidelines for lower and higher education; the latest being the propaganda education curriculum called Common-Core.

John Dewey, the so-called father of American public education, called teachers "progressive agents of [socialist] change." In modern times, under the Machiavellian tactics of cultural hegemony, education is controlled by socialists and progressives at every level where education is homogenized, dumbed-downed, perverted, and propagandized with Nazi-like efficiency using Gestapo tactics and Schutzstaffel (SS) strategies perfected by the Nazis during World War II they termed – Weltanschauung und Gleichschaltung (worldview and forcing into line). These fascist but effective methods are expressly designed to keep liberals/progressives in, Christians and conservatives out of what Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes called the "marketplace of ideas."

Thus history, circumstances, and destiny have compelled me to write this iconoclastic, biographical Manifesto... A Nigger Manifesto, if you will, exposing the invidious, ideological racism against Black conservative scholars, academics, and intellectuals that is so rampant throughout America's colleges, universities, and law schools that few dare even mention its' existence. This outrage against Christians and conservative academics demands immediate Congressional action. It is a gross dereliction of duty that to date Congress, who since 1788 under Art. 1, Sec. 8 of the U.S. Constitution has plenary, enumerated powers to control the purse strings of the federal budget including funding to virtually all American colleges, yet Congress ironically has been the de jure financiers of ideological racism in America by annually rubber-stamping education appropriation bills in a perfunctory manner.

Congress has been willfully ignorant of history that since the founding of the National Education Association (NEA) in 1857, public education in America has been systematically perverted to deconstruct a morality-legality synthesis, and to establish an anti-historical approach to education that slanders American exceptionalism. Since the 1860s the Left has used Darwin's Origin of Species (1859) as its primary blueprint textbook to deconstruct Western civilization including America's Judeo-Christian traditions, Natural Law, natural rights, conservative thought, a constitutional Republican Party, while concurrently mandating an entrenched, existential, evolution atheism in all societal institutions – a diabolical means propagating a Darwinist, socialist, progressive worldview end. Thus today, America is essentially a one-party Democratic Socialist State – the constitutional Framer's original Republic founded under God, the Bible, Natural Law, states' rights and federalism, all but a deadletter. Nevertheless, I hear the prophetic words of the Roman poet Juvenal ringing in my ears who queried almost 2,000 years ago – Quis custodiet ipsos custodies? – who guards the guardians? I answer – Natural Law and Veritas! (truth)

Tragic also is that virtually no scholars have seen the need to seriously analyze, to systematically chronicle, and propose proven, substantive legal remedies and effective public policy in opposition to these existential, racialist attacks against the livelihood of conservative scholars, Black intellectuals, and academics by the progressive gatekeepers which has existed in gross violation of U.S. federal law for over 150 years, or since circa 1860, the advent of the Darwin-Marx-Gramsci 'Long March through the Institutions' – The apotheosis of the Progressive Revolution.
