How Smart Is Ibram X. Kendi?

You might not think that it’s America’s largest problem, but the simple fact that leading academic intellectuals are certifiable imbeciles must count among the largest. 

So, here we have distinguished Boston University professor Ibram X. Kendi, recipient of multiple accolades and much cash for being a leader of the anti-racism movement. 

Someone asked Kendi to define racism. It was not a bad question. It should not have been a difficult question.

Kendi responded:

So racism, I would define it as a collection of racist policies that lead to racial inequity that are substantiated by racist ideas.

The Moonbattery blog comments sagely (via Maggie’s Farm):

As you can see, the pretentious and not very bright Ibram X. Kendi is a bad joke. That makes him suited for his prominent role in America’s self-inflicted demise. The country is choking to death on the bad joke that is modern liberalism.

Soooooooooooo, I take it he's FOR it? I could be wrong; I've been wrong before. But I haven't been "wronger"....yet. It could happen, but it's unlikely.

Once known as circular reasoning.

While bias is intrinsic, prejudice is progressive. Diversity [dogma] (i.e. color judgment), not limited to racism, sexism, ageism, denies individual dignity, individual conscience, intrinsic value, and normalizes color blocs (e.g. the racist designation "people of color", the concept of Jew... White... Asian privilege, masculine (i.e. gender) toxicity, a "burden" and wicked solution, too), color quotas, and affirmative discrimination under a banner of inclusive exclusion.
