Ibram X. Kendi has a problem with Amy Coney Barrett. Kendi, who received $10 million in donations from Twitter boss Jack Dorsey, has now unleashed a super racist attack on President Trump's Supreme Court nomination and her kids.
When Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, posited that "With 2 adopted children from Haiti, it is going to be interesting to watch the Democrats try to smear Amy Coney Barrett as racist."
Kendi took up that challenge, saying "Some White colonizers 'adopted' Black children. They 'civilized' these 'savage' children in the 'superior' ways of White people, using them as props in their lifelong pictures of denial, while cutting the biological parents of these children out of the picture of humanity."
Martin has since deleted her tweet, but Kendi's missive has been shared thousands of times. After attacking Barrett, and accusing her, without naming her directly, of being a racist white colonizer, he went on to say "And whether his is Barrett or not is not the point," despite her and her children being the reason for him to make these statements. "It is a belief too many White people have: if they have or adopt a child of color, then they can't be racist."
He surmises that the reason parents would adopt a child is to assuage their own guilt about the inherited sins of their race. Though he couched this assault on trans racial adoption as a general diatribe, it is clear that the reason he unleashed these ideas on Saturday was due Barrett's nomination.
When people pushed back against his ideas that white parents who adopt black kids see themselves as special rescuers of savages, he determined that this was a result of them being "bots."
He wrote that he's "challenging the idea that White parents of kids of color are inherently 'not racist' and the bots completely change what I'm saying to 'White parents of kids of color are inherently racist.' These live and fake bots are good at their propaganda. Let's not argue with them."
Spectator's Stephen Miller responded with a photo of noted practitioner of critical race theory Colin Kaepernick with his white adoptive parents.
Kaepernick has been an outspoken advocate for Black Lives Matter since his pro-football days, when he took to kneeling during the American national anthem instead of standing, with hand over heart, as was customary.
Barrett, who touts among her many accomplishments being a judge on the Seventh Circuit Court, a law professor at Notre Dame, clerking for former Justice Antonin Scalia, and being nominated to the Supreme Court, has seven children and believes that motherhood is her primary achievement.
When she was invited to speak by the Notre Dame Club of Washington, DC, Barrett said "what, what greater thing can you do than raise children? That's where you have your greatest impact on the world."
