    In the second chapter of How to Be an Antiracist (2019), Ibram X. Kendi defines an “antiracist” as “[o]ne who is expressing the idea that racial groups are equals and none needs developing, and is supporting policy that reduces racial inequity.” The rule seems basic and sensible until it’s actually applied: If one honestly expresses the idea that racial groups are equals and that none needs developing, then one cannot support policies reducing racial inequities, as it negates the very belief one is required to hold and express. If one supports policies reducing racial inequities, then he implicitly confesses his belief that the racial groups in question are not equals.

 Ibram X. Kendi goes by peace as Thomas Paine did:

"I prefer peace. But if trouble must come, let it come in my time, so that my children can live in peace."

I wouldn't dare say anything about these political issues - most probably .I will side with Ibram X Kendi and Denzel Washington.  mask
