Left-wing activist Ibram X. Kendi posted but quickly deleted a tweet on Saturday that undermined the validity of baseless theories such as “systemic racism.”
deleted, but the List comes for all, @DrIbram.

“More than a third of White students lied about their race on college applications, and about half of these applicants lied about being Native American,” Kendi wrote. “More than three-fourths of these students who lied about their race were accepted.”
Of course, Kendi quickly realized his mistake and deleted the Tweet, the Daily Wire reported.
Kendi has made millions promoting the Marxist-inspired Critical Race Theory, which relies on the premise that American political systems are inherently racist because they were constructed primarily by white men.
However, many on Twitter attacked Kendi for his absurd post, questioning why, if white children are so privileged, they would pretend to have non-white heritage in order to improve their odds of getting into college?
Conservative journalist Jack Posobiec suggested that Kendi undermined his own arguments, claiming that he “broke Kendi.”
Kendi replied by suggesting that Posobiec lied.
He then doubled-down, comparing Posobiec to a slave owner for using the language of “breaking” someone.
Jack couldn’t deny his lies so this is how he responded. And his “broke” reference has a long history within racist structures. White enslavers boasted of *breaking* Black people (when they did not *break* Black people). The resistance never stopped then and it won’t stop today. https://t.co/PjTEgk1djO

Kendi continued to defend himself with nonsequitors, claiming that he was the victim of white colonialism.
“A white man is attacking a black person with lies, which are violence,” he said. “The black person resists. The white man keeps attacking until he declares he broke the black person. That’s the context. Seek a book about slavery.”
