“Enslaved people were fighting for freedom from slavery, and enslavers were fighting for the freedom to enslave, and in many ways, that sort of contrast still exists today,” Kendi told the host. “There are people who are fighting for freedom from assault rifles, freedom from poverty, freedom from exploitation, and there are others who are fighting for freedom to exploit, freedom to have guns, freedom to maintain inequality.”
What racist hatefulness. This is the sort of racial agitation Democrat strategist Saul Alinsky promoted when he urged the Left to “rub raw the resentments of the people” in order to divide and conquer.
Pew Research Center polling data reveals that while 36 percent of white Americans say they are gun owners, 24 percent of blacks, and 15 percent of Hispanics also say they own a firearm. But those details don’t fit the ugly, racist narrative which has been so lucrative for Kendi.
