Conservative talk radio host Larry Elder challenged wealthy activist Ibram X. Kendi to discuss the root cause of racial wealth inequality after Kendi compared Elder’s commentary to a “minstrel show.”
“[Ibram X. Kendi], I invite you on my show to discuss the root cause of black income/net worth “inequality,” Elder tweeted Thursday in response to a racial taunt from the bestselling author of How to Be an Antiracist.
Kendi had responded to a post from Elder, writing, “Only in America can Black people become wealthy by telling White people they have 10 times the median wealth of Black people because they are superior — and not racism. No need to finance minstrel shows any more when they can finance Larry Elder.”
Elder had previously tagged Kendi in a tweet: “Only in America can black victicrats like [Ibram X. Kendi] become wealthy by telling white people how they prevent black people from becoming wealthy. Is this a great country or what?” He added the hashtag “We’ve Got A Country To Save.”
Kendi has not yet responded to Elder’s challenge — and he won’t, because he knows Elder will publicly bring down the entire shaky edifice of Kendi’s racist ideology.
