The Root is a black-empowerment website that is fascinating to visit, especially for the comments, as it reveals the utter fantasy-land that politically corrected modern blacks live in today.
The message that "Dr. Gates" is sending out to his fellow African-Americans, is that whites are and always have been hopelessly evil, and that American blacks were in fact the endlessly more intelligent, resourceful and morally incorruptible betters of the white devils that held down the negroes out of pure sadistic jealousy and spite.
Henry Louis Gates is one of the only voices on The Root that does not sound like an aggrieved and none-too-bright adolescent waxing liberation theology after a stint in diversity bootcamp, but I guess from a Harvard professor and PBS darling we should expect no less.
Go to The Root and take a look at the comments there. You will see angry Afro Americans seething at the whites they have been indoctrinated to hate and I mean Hate.
From Gates's "How Many Slave Narratives," for example, they were fed this by Harvard's top African American A.A. hire :
*sniff*A Best-Seller Once MoreI have to pinch myself every time I’m told that the book 12 Years a Slave is holding steady onthe New York Sunday Best Sellers List (incredibly, it was No. 3 last Sunday on the combined e-book/print non-fiction list). After all, Solomon Northup published his memoir 161 years ago, and it and the genre to which it belongs, the African-American slave narrative, were largely forgotten, devalued as literature or dismissed as valid historical evidence, until the first generation of black studies professors insisted on teaching them in the 1960s and 1970s. Even then, there were skeptics who felt that the slave narratives had little to no literary value, that if they were useful at all, it was for historical research, no different than sifting through a box of old newspapers and correspondence. Now, Northup’s autobiography is making the papers, and I say, if it took Steve McQueen’s brilliantly conceived film adaption to get people reading, amen.
Of course no mention here, of the fact that : (A) Solomon Northrup's book was likely ghost-written by a white abolitionist and that (B) Solomon himself only wound up in that situation because he conspired with another sneaky white guy to get himself sold into slavery for personal profit. It happened back then, much as it does to this day (read: Duke Lacrosse, Columbia University, and myriad other race hoaxes).
More importantly: Dr. Gates (sorry, "Yo Mama" Dr. Gates) fails to mention in his The Root piece that most important archive of the so-called Slave Narratives, the wonderful 1936 - 1938 Works Projects Administration's own Slave Narratives Project, which consisted of six thousand young bespectacled white college types interviewing the several tens of thousands elderly ex-slaves still living (comfortable, relatively-speaking) lives in the American South, and the fact that the vast majority of these African American ex-slaves old stories that sounded a lot like this:

That's right: an honest assessment of the Library of Congress's Slave Narratives reveals that the majority of interviewed slaves spoke longingly of their slavery days.
This is in stark contrast to this Whoodi Goldberg-narrated You Tube propaganda ditty :
Check out Steve Sailer's own take on the deeply verminous Hollywood outpouring of love for the ever-so-deceitful film by Steve McQueen ("the african-british director did not have the good taste to choose the name 'Steven McQueen' to avoid confusion").
