(Headline USA) Few have profited more off the perpetuation of racial divisions than professional race-hustler Ibram X. Kendi, founding director of the Boston University Center for Antiracist Research.
His theory of “antiracism,” closely aligned with Critical Race Theory, is, in fact, a form of inverse racism that argues blacks and other minorities should receive systemic advantages to counterbalance perceived inequities of the past.
Even Kendi, himself, has inadvertently acknowledged that “white privilege” no longer exists in American society, tweeting last year that whites increasingly were faking their racial identity on college applications to improve their chances of acceptance. He hastily deleted the tweet after it drew mockery and backlash.
Now, however, Kendi has set his sights on an audience that is less likely to call him out on his hypocrisy: your children.
Penguin Young Readers announced Wednesday that in Kendi’s Goodnight Racism, illustrated by Cbabi Bayoc and is scheduled to come out June 14.
Although it arrives amid a national reckoning on school indoctrination—fueled by parents outraged over the promotion of CRT and other leftist talking points, such as transgenderism—Kendi claimed that the book’s purpose was to connect with children’s capacity to imagine a better world.
“’Goodnight Racism’ is not about what is; it is about what can be,” Kendi said in a statement. “It is about the good morning of an equitable and just world after wishing racism goodnight.”
Like fellow kids-lit author Nikole Hannah–Jones, the creative force behind the “1619 Project,” indoctrination has been a central component in Kendi’s mission. He previously penned the Antiracist Baby picture book and the parents’ guide How to Raise an Antiracist.
Kendi’s fellow leftist elites have heaped effusive praise on his work. He won the National Book Award in 2016 for Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America. He has since published several other well-received books marketed toward adults, including How to Be An Antiracist.
