Macnamara Posted November 1, 2021 Share Posted November 1, 2021 Anti-racism professor deletes tweet about students lying they’re NOT WHITE to improve admission odds, denounces critics as racists 1 Nov, 2021 01:05 Critical race theorist Ibram Kendi may have inadvertently undermined his life’s work with a since-deleted tweet, and he turned to a familiar tactic when mocked for the gaffe, essentially calling one critic a racist. The episode began with Kendi, the Boston University professor whose anti-racism institute was funded by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, reacting on Friday to a media report indicating that 34% of white US college applicants had lied about their race on applications to improve their chances at gaining admissions and financial aid. As Kendi’s tweet noted, more than three-fourths of the students who pretended to be non-white were accepted into their targeted college. Online critics, such as authors James Lindsay and Chad Felix Greene, argued that Kendi accidentally admitted non-whites are favored in college admissions – contrary to his teachings.The professor has built a career on telling Americans that whites are systemically privileged and should be discriminated against to remedy past injustices. https://www.rt.com/usa/539019-students-lying-race-privilege-kendi/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
