Mary Frances Berry is a name you may recall

You may recall that while a former chairman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights last reappointed by President Bill Clinton she was such a RWPP nutbag she was finally gotten rid of. Where is she now? the Geraldine R. Segal Professor of American Social Thought and History at the University of Pennsylvania(parents who have kids there ought to find out what crap they're being taught)
And what is she saying now?
Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.
Yeah, God forbid you actually talk about problems when you can slander people to try to shut them up, right? Another good progressive slimeball in high position in education.
Project 21 member Bob Parks added: “What’s most disturbing about this very public quote? Not only is Mary Frances Berry making this comment without fear of admonishment, and that progressives have apparently embraced and are employing these very shameful, race-baiting tactics — but Berry is likely teaching this “social thought” hate to children.”

At least she is giving an honest objective assessment. And pointing out to everyone on the democratic party side how dishonest this tactic is.

I don't recall much else about her. I would bet her values are very different from mine or yours. But she can be objective in at least one (public?) forum.
