Ibram X. Kendi: I Suspect Sen. Cruz Didn’t Read “How To Be An Antiracist”

Published on July 1, 2022

Watching Sen. Ted Cruz criticize one of his books during the confirmation hearing for Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson did not deter author Ibram X. Kendi from pursuing his mission to encourage all Americans, especially children, to learn how to be antiracist. Check out Kendi’s two latest books, “Goodnight Racism” and “How to Raise an Antiracist,” available everywhere now. #Colbert #GoodnightRacism #IbramXKendi

    With a nightime meeting with Lorane Bobert, make sure to wear “rain gear”.

    Very interesting interview! I’m not American and had never heard of this author before, but hearing him speak here actually made me curious to read the book mentioned (plus, if Ted Cruz didn’t like it that’s probably a good sign lol).

    And meanwhile, Texas now wants schools to rebrand slavery as “involuntary relocation”.

    Black people are some of the most racist people I’ve ever come across. “There’s nothing wrong with them because of the colour of their skin” yes I agree, however they should apply that to their own thinking regarding non black people.

    This guy is amazing! So clear, level headed, earnest, sincere, authentic. In other words, the opposite of Ted Cruz. Of course Cruz didn’t read a word of the children’s book he brandished at Ms. Jackson’s hearing. So sickening to think of that horrible moment as possibly hurting her confirmation chances. Fortunately it appears to be very unlikely there was any damage at all. Still, it makes me almost heave to imagine an alternate evil universe where she loses to the machinations of this wretch and his sympathizers.

    Kendi’s question “why can’t we expect white children to identify with white abolitionists?” just blows my mind with its simplicity, the way it instantly exposes the apparent subterfuge underlying so much of the “critique” of CRT.

    Musings while watching this awesome interview

    a) use the word “strive” in place of “fight” when talking about political goals; a small but powerful redirection
    b) to help us remember, as we redesign, build, and maintain our national cohesion as USA’ns, (spoiler alert: fascism need not apply🧑‍⚖️) we can encourage a new way of thinking by repurposing something we already recognize, “national ____ history month/week/day,” as (an example) our National Honor Wall Show-and-tell , lol or some such, as a way to celebrate any, each, and every one of the myriad pieces of the USA’n experience while reaffirming that “we” are the puzzle itself.
    c) be a proactive antithesis-of-a-racist, even if no one is watching

    Kendi has become an obsessive target of hate for many on the right – they talk about him constantly, though they never read his work. Ted Cruz was just virtue signaling for the bigots when he held up Kendi’s book.

    Let us have those politician’s accountable for their dereliction of the oath that they swore to.
