You can make a lot of money these days being an “antiracist” racist.
Just ask Ibram X. Kendi.
The director of the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University and the author of “How to Be an Antiracist” spews the kind of hatred for white people that would mark him as a racist if A) he were white and saying such things about black people and B) if media and our educational systems hadn’t lost their minds.
Kendi, of course, made headlines when he likened Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett to a “white colonizer.” Why? Because Barrett and her husband, who are white, had the audacity to add to their loving family two children they adopted from impoverished Haiti.
“Some White colonizers ‘adopted’ Black children. They ‘civilized’ these ‘savage’ children in the ‘superior’ ways of White people, while using them as props in their lifelong picture of denial, while cutting the biological parents of these children from humanity,” the “antiracist” snidely wrote on Twitter.

Kendi’s ideology—not Barrett’s adoptions—is what strips people of their humanity, remarked Jarrett Stepman, this week in the Daily Signal.
What should come as a surprise is how much this “intellectual” bigot makes — at taxpayer expense. Boston University has “awarded” the 37-year-old the University’s Andrew W. Mellon Professorship in the Humanities, with its hefty salary.
Fairfax County, Virginia, schools in August paid Kendi $20,000 to have him speak for an hour via teleconference to school leaders and administrators.
And painfully woke corporate America has dumped a bundle into this academic charlatan’s bank account. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced in August that he was donating $10 million to the Center for Antiracist Research.
Who said Woke bigotry doesn’t pay.
