Cancel Culture Comes For Ibram X Kendi

Ibram X Kendi writes about how one can become an anti-racist. Kendi admits that he often fails. Apparently, he sits at his desk and realizes that Trump is trying to push through a new SCOTUS candidate. Kendi, the anti-racist poses the question on Twitter if adopting a black child automatically makes a white person a non-racist.

There was no justice for Breonna Taylor, so there was no peace Wednesday night on the streets of Louisville.

Phillip Guston Exhibit Delayed

Phillip Guston is an artist who included cartoonish images of Klansmen in his imagery. His work includes 24 images of Klansmen. A retrospective of his work was supposed to go on display on and traveling display in June. The retrospective has been delayed until 2024 because of concern about how the artwork would be received in the racial tension present in 2020. The curators feel more time is needed to create a context for the Klansmen included in the display.

Guston felt that his work held up a mirror to America.

Reverend Al Sharpton On Violence In Black Neighborhoods

Al Sharpton denounced the shooting of two LA deputy sheriffs. He also condemned violence in black neighborhoods. To some, it seemed like Sharpton had an amazing and recent transformation. This is not true.

Sharpton has repeatedly criticized gun violence.

Breonna Taylor’s Sister Expresses Her Grief

Before Breonna Taylor was a name chanted in the streets and scrawled on signs, before she was a face emblazoned on street murals and the cover of Oprah’s magazine, before she was the reason millions of Americans started clamoring for criminal charges to be brought against four Louisville police officers, before she came to symbolize the Black lives incomprehensibly snuffed out by law enforcement, she was Ju’Niyah Palmer’s sister — her companion, role model and confidante.

“She was my person,” Palmer, 20, told The Washington Post in an interview. “I was her shadow.”

MLK Jr Criticized Social Conditions Not the Rioters

We know how King would respond to our current mean season of political unrest, racial division and state-sanctioned violence. He understood much more than the fact that “riots were the language of the unheard.” He eloquently argued that the racial upheaval gripping the country during the 1960s was the direct result of white supremacy’s uncanny hold on every aspect of American life, from public schools, housing and health care to criminal justice, employment and domestic and foreign policy.
