Ibram 🤡 Kendi: "We're still in a slaveholders republic" because some people want "the freedom to infect people" with COVID
· Aug 2, 2021 · NottheBee.com

I feel bad for whoever had to listen to 30 minutes of this podcast to find this garbage clip.

"I ended up writing this piece in the Atlantic that basically argued that we're still in a slaveholders' republic," Kendi said, which received a cringe-inducing "Mmmmm" affirmation from the Karen listening to Kendi in the recording.

This audio clip is from the July 28 episode of Kendi's podcast called "Be Antiracist with Ibram X. Kendi."

While that excerpt is dumb on its own, it becomes ever more stupider when you realize Kendi was saying the "slaveholders' republic" is that some people still want "the freedom to infect people"!

"What I argued is that the slaveholder -- the individual, wanted the freedom to enslave," Kendi continued. "There's no difference between that and the individual saying, 'I should have the freedom to infect people,'" which received ANOTHER "MMMMM" that even louder than the previous one from the co-host.

"'I should have the freedom to kill, and exploit, and harass, and terrorize, and enslave people,' had a different philosophy; instead of 'the individual to-,' it was 'the community from-.' So, how do we as a community gain freedom from slavery, from oppression, or, in the case of the coronavirus, from infection."

If you'd like to torture yourself some more with this aNtI-rAcIsT GRIFT, then I guess you can read the original piece Kendi references in the clip.

Consider this highlight fair warning:

"There is something about living through a deadly pandemic that cuts open the shell, removes the flesh, and finds the very core of American existence: the slaveholder clamoring for his freedom to infect, and the enslaved clamoring for our freedom from infection."
