A sharp new book takes a look at its quackery

... Yet millions of Americans have been hoodwinked by this nonsense, so many so that all of our elite institutions, spanning academia, media, corporate boardrooms, and the entertainment industry, now kowtow to Kendi’s illogic.

.So it’s difficult not to be a little pessimistic about the billion-dollar racial grievance industry. I presume none of Feser’s CRT sparring partners will actually read this book — they have proved themselves so impervious to even the most charitable and tempered criticism that they seem a lost cause. Nevertheless, as elections have shown, voters are tiring of being called racists and being forced to conform to the suffocating categories created by CRT ideologues.

Perhaps, then, the best target audience for Feser’s pocket-size refutation of CRT are those who thought embracing it would place them in the “good guys” camp, but have begun to realize they were suckered them into a spiral of endless self-abasement. There is no forgiveness or reconciliation in the anti-racist paradigm. That would mean equity had been realized — an end-state anti-racists will never allow, because it would eliminate their (very lucrative) raison d’être.

Long and detailed.  I won't copy any excerpts.  Read the whole thing:

A Dutchman said it all:

Eight Simple Rules to Being an Antiracist:

1) Stop assuming certain people cannot be racist.
2) Stop telling people they are inherent victims.
3) Stop telling people they owe you something.
4) Stop redefining the word "racist/racism"
5) Stop assuming when there is a racist confrontation, one group is inherent antagonist and the other inherent innocent victim.
6) Stop assuming every time you do not get what you want, it's because of racism.
7) Stop demanding "an honest discussion about race" but never listen to opposition.
8) Stop profiting from racism via disingenuously writing books or TV programs about it.

I've heard of Prof Ibram X. Kendi before but I didn't know he was that verbally so active, and a more recent book has been published.
