Finally, Attacking the Adopt-a-Coloured Defence to Racism By Charles Taylor
I have noticed that in politically correct culture, in primarily Nordic/Northern European ethnics, if couples have a number of children and they are in the limelight, then it is obligatory that they adopt Black or non-Nordic children. While this can be noble if the children are genuinely in need of care, I have often viewed this in a cynical light, as virtue signalling, which is using the kiddies as a political shield. And, that could be racist, gasp! Hell, what isn’t “racist”?
“Ibram X. Kendi, director of Boston University’s Center for Antiracist Research, wrote on Saturday that white people who adopt black children may be “racist,” joining a growing group of Democrats and leftists commenting on Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Haitian son and daughter. Kendi wrote on social media: “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 pictures of denial, while cutting the biological parents of these children out of the picture of humanity.” “And whether this is Barrett or not is not the point,” he continued. “It is a belief too many White people have: if they have or adopt a child of color, then they can’t be racist.” Kendi concluded, “I’m 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.”
Perhaps this antiracist academic did not appreciate that while his critique may, or may not apply to Barrett, it goes far further down the burrow than he anticipated and collects many Leftists in Hollywood, and elsewhere. So, keep up the good work!
