Critical Race Theory propagandist and race huckster Ibram X. Kendi declared during an American Federation of Teachers (AFT) conference Wednesday that “To be racist, is to constantly, consistently, deny, deny, deny, like Donald Trump.”
Kendi, the author of Stamped from the Beginning: A Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America, How to Be an Antiracist, and Antiracist Baby, had been invited to keynote the teachers’ union’s biennial TEACH (Together Educating America’s Children) professional development conference — making it clear where the union stands on the racist ideology of Critical Race Theory.
In conversation with Fedrick C. Ingram, AFT secretary-treasurer, Kendi stated, “In studying the history of racism, even studying the history of times in which people were being racist, what I found was a consistent, sort of, narrative was just denial, was, was people just denying the ways in which they were being racist, their racist policies, their racist ideas. People constantly and consistently, whether you’re a Ku Klux Klansman, a lyncher, or a slaveholder or segregationist, or, you know, someone today consistently claiming they’re not racist, no matter what they do or say. And I wanted the heartbeat, really, of this book to be the veritable opposite of that… [T]o be antiracist, is to admit the times which we’re being racist. To be racist, is to constantly consistently, deny, deny, deny, like Donald Trump.”
This is part of the genius of the left’s “anti-racism” argument: that denying you are racist is proof that you are racist.
Kendi went on to deny, falsely, that Critical Race Theory is being taught in K-12 schools and that parents outraged about it have been fed “lies.”
“To me, we live in a dangerously racist society,” he concluded
Indeed we do, and that racism is being directed at white people. And racist demagogues like Kendi are a big part of the reason why.
