No Dinesh D'souza

from Das Racist – Hugo Chavez Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Dinesh D'Souza is a Conservative Indian-American intellectual and the author of a book called “The End of Racism.” He talks about the concept of the “model minority” (which refers to high-achieving Asian Americans) in his book.

Dinesh D'Souza is notorious as one of the first of the people-of-color conservatives that started coming up in the late early 90s (later followed by Michelle Malkin, Viet Dinh, and John Yoo of the Torture Memo), in explicit response to the upsurge of pan Asian-Black-Latino progressive organizing on American campuses. His 1991 book “Illiberal Education” was a direct attack on the progressive movement on American campuses, and became the seed for things like the David Project, which seek to target and “out” leftist college professors. It became a standard response among progressive South Asians to respond to D'Souza that he “doesn’t speak for South Asians” (we organized a similar mass petition when he came to speak at Oberlin in 1991) and Das Racist are along that trajectory when they say “[I’m] No Dinesh D'Souza”

His book does not discuss the concept of the model minority. The phrase “No Dinesh D'Souza” may be a rejection of D'Souza’s idea that racism has ended.

D'Souza is extremely conservative, and it seems as if these guys would have dozens of reasons to reject his philosophy.
