Social Media Erupts Over 'Antiracist Baby' — a Book That Teaches Babies to 'Confess' Their Racism & Spot 'White Privilege'

It’s never too early to teach babies about racism, right? That, or it’s never too early to begin to indoctrinate young children into believing “White people” are inherently “racist” — whether they realize it or not.

A recently published children’s book titled “Antiracist Baby” is designed to help parents teach their babies that they were born racist, learn to identify and “confess” their racism, and help other White people identify their “racism,” as well.

This is real, folks. It’s not a joke — although a sadistic joke it would be.

Here are the details, as summarized by The Blaze.

The book, written by No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Ibram X. Kendi, was released in June.

Kendi wrote the book, according to reports, to help “empower parents and children to uproot racism in our society and in ourselves.”

That feat, according to Kendi — who is also director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University in Washington, D.C. — is apparently only possible through raising “antiracist” babies.

According to The Caldron Pool, the book lays out nine steps from which parents can base raising an ethical and inclusivity-seeking child.

The book ensures that if parents follow the rules step by step, it will help to “improve equity, such as opening our eyes to all skin colors and celebrating all our differences.”

Such steps include calling out racism when it’s seen, and confessing to inherent racism as babies and toddlers.

The book uses friendly looking cartoon graphics, depicting demonstrators with signs that read things like “Black Lives Matter” and “Equity now!” and more.

As an aside, as I was writing this piece, I kept catching myself thinking, “OMG, this is real.” As surrealistic as it initially seemed, it just kept getting more and more surreal, as I wrote. It still is.

This is a clear attempt to indoctrinate babies into believing not only were they racist when they left the womb — for the “sin” of being born White — they’re also “racist” if they don’t become race police against other racist White babies, friends, and families members, as well.

What have we become? More ominously, where is it all of this headed?

The YouTube video below presents the “lesson” of Kendi’s book.

Among its “highlights”:

“Antiracist Baby is bred, not born.”

“Antiracist Baby is raised to make society transform.”

“Babies are taught to be racist, or antiracist; there is no neutrality.”

“Take these nine steps to make equity a reality.”

  1. Open your eyes to all skin colors. Antiracist Baby learns all the colors; not because race is true. If you claim to be colorblind, you deny what is right in front of you.

  2. Use your words to talk about race. No one will see racism if we only stay silent. If we don’t name racism, it won’t stop being so violent.

  3. Point at policies as the problem, not people. Some people get more, while others get less… because policies don’t always grant equal access.

  4. Shout: ‘There’s nothing wrong with the people!’ Even though all races are not treated the same, ‘We are all human!’, Antiracist Baby can proclaim!

  5. Celebrate all our differences. Antiracist Baby doesn’t see certain groups as ‘better,’ or ‘worse.’ Antiracist Baby loves a world that’s truly diverse.

  6. Knock down the stack of cultural blocks. Antiracist Baby appreciates how groups speak, dance, and participate as they choose. Antiracist Baby welcomes all groups.

  7. Confess when being racist. Nothing disrupts racism more than when we confess the racist ideas we sometimes express.

  8. Grow to be an antiracist. Antiracist Baby is always learning, changing, and growing. Antiracist Baby stays curious about all people and isn’t all-knowing.

  9. Believe we should overcome racism. Antiracist Baby is filled with the power to transcend, my friend. And doesn’t judge a book by its cover but reads until… THE END.

This is not only an attempt to instill White guilt in the smallest of children; it is child abuse, plain and simple.

More than a few denizens of the Twittersphere agree.

This tweet sums it up, perfectly.

“Good (Antiracist), while the other is Bad (Racist). That’s about as crudely reductive as an idea can be. It’s like suggesting the Ninth Symphony can be adequately played with a couple of coconut shells.”

As noted in the tweet, “try and explain what ‘equity’ or ‘policies’ or ‘violent’ means to a toddler. See how far you get.”

As to that indoctrination I mentioned, earlier…

This tweet says it all.

The bottom line:

The final tweet above does say it all.

It is horrifying what the insidious Left is attempting to do to American society. Unabashedly so, and before our very eyes. One of the initial steps in creating a totalitarian state in which individual thought and reason give way to collectivism is to instill groupthink.

Doing so in babies is as obscene as it is dangerous. What comes next?
