Newest "racist" term: "professor"

Sarah Palin recently said this:

Whereupon yet another person with way too much time on his hands chimes in:

[Harvard Professor Charles J.] 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.

Yeah, right. OK. Just remember:
