Ibram Kendi, the leftwing author of the book “How to Be An Antiracist,” and a pundit who frequently appears on CBS “This Morning,” was hit with tons of backlash on Saturday after he suggested that Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett adopted Haitian children to shield herself from accusations of racism.

Kendi took to Twitter to respond to a purported photo of Barrett and her two adopted children from Haiti. However, the photo was not actually of Barrett. Here’s what Kendi had to say:

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. It is a belief too many White people have: if they have or adopt a child of color, then they can’t be racist.

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.

The backlash against Kendi was swift.

“Are you suggesting that any white family who adopts black children are colonizers and that interracial adoption is somehow evil? Please clarify because if this is your position, it’s an evil one,” one person commented, with another adding, “Kinda sounds like you’re projecting some weird racist s**t onto it idk man.”

“You ever thought that just maybe race is irrelevant to some people when it comes to loving another human.. Crazy I know,” a third user wrote. A fourth person added, “Or two orphaned Haitian children are adopted by a white family who love these children as if they are their own and are loved by aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins they otherwise would never have known.”
