In the eighties, the televangelists had the best grift going. Money pouring in, and for many years no real scrutiny of what they were doing for, or with, all that money.
But that train largely left the station (I’m looking at you, Joel Osteen and Creflo Dollar).
But the grift? That just goes on and on.
Ibran X. Xendi is like the Jim Bakker of critical race theory – only his grift involves gaslighting all of western culture.
“Anti-Racism” is a political belief (which in many ways only tangentially intersects with attitudes about race at all), having little to do with ethnics, morality or behavior. Xendi’s statement is pure cultural gaslighting.
Helpfully, Xendi elaborates:
He’s a PhD, remember, and yet doesn’t apparently know the difference between a word and a phrase.
And yet he’s got the kind of scam running that Jim Bakker could only dream about:
Gotta admire Xendi’s ability to cater to a market – even if it’s just self-loathing progressive academics, hangers-on, and NPR personalities.
