Amazon's Kindle readers are filling the top pages of free recommendations for kids with radical children’s books, designed to train a generation of activists.

A Seattle mother who wished to remain anonymous, sent The Post Millennial screenshots of the first two pages of results from her 10-year-old's Kindle Overdrive library system.

The first two books were from the library's "Racial Justice" series and listed the titles, What Does It Mean To Defund The Police? By Jessica S. Henry and Kelisa Wing. Henry is an associate professor of Justice Studies at Montclair University who has called for abolishing the police.

Wing co-authored the next book on the list entitled What is the Black Lives Matter Movement, with Hedreich Nicols. Nicols a curriculum designer and Middle Years Program district edtech lead from North Texas. She is also an equity consultant helping teachers and districts "amplify the voices of all students."

After a book about how robots and humans work was a book entitled How to Become an Accidental Activist by Elizabeth MacLeod and Frieda Wishinsky.

Who is Ru Paul? About the famous drag queen, is currently waitlisted as is a book about beavers, but Girl Warriors, stories of 25 global climate activists under age 25, by Rachel Sarah was available.

Eric Braun’s book The Gay Rights Movement, followed as did She Persisted in Sports by Chelsea Clinton. Colin Kaepernick and Black Lives Matter "mostly peaceful" protests even graced the cover with Dr. Martin Luther King Junior on Braun's other book, The Civil Rights Movement.

During the BLM riots in 2020, Amazon announced a $10-million donation to organizations supporting the fight against "systemic racism and injustice," a figure that grew as the company matched employee donations. This did not stop rioters from destroying Amazon Go and Whole Foods retailers.

According to the Los Angeles Times Amazon has been accused of systemic bias against including, "retaliating against employees who wore Black Lives Matter paraphernalia, paying low wages to a disproportionately Black and Latino warehouse workforce and discriminating against them when it comes to promotions."
