An "intellectual" whose writings are based on opinions (which any asshole could write), and not a substantial amount of scholarly research. Michael Eric Dyson's book: Is Bill Cosby Right? or has the Black Middle Class Lost Its Mind is a great example. What kind of title is that? He's not a scholar, he's what capitalism produces.
I'm about to get the new young jeezy, and michael eric dyson's book.
Oh yeah?, but isn't he like a scholar?
naw, man he's a bootleg intellectual.
