President-elect Joe Biden’s pick to become Assistant Attorney General for the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division is a professor who has argued that Black people are mentally and physically superior to White people.
In a 1994 letter written in her capacity as president of Harvard University’s Black Students Association, Kristen Clarke, who went on to become Howard University School of Law Professor, wrote in a letter the editor of The Harvard Crimson, urging them to “search for truth regarding the genetic differences between Blacks and Whites.”
Clarke wrote that “at the core of the human brain is the ‘locus coeruleus’ which is a structure that is Black because it contains large amounts of (neuro) melanin which is essential for its operation.”
She asserted that “Black infants sit, stand, crawl and walk sooner than Whites,” and claimed that melanin “gives Blacks their superior physical and mental abilities.”
Additionally, Clarke wrote that “melanin endows Blacks with greater mental, physical and spiritual abilities — something which cannot be measured based on Eurocentric standards.” …
When asked by Campus Reform about the implications of Clarke’s appointment for college campuses, Chance Layton — Director of Communications for the National Association of Scholars — explained that “Kristen Clarke, by all accounts, will do nothing to stop the Woke’s push to reinstitute racial segregation on campus.”
National Association of Scholars Director of Research David Randall explained that “Kristen Clarke has stated that ‘systemic racism that pervades every aspect of our lives, especially when it comes to policing and the operation of the criminal justice system of our country.’”
“The false ideology of ‘systemic racism’ presumes irremediable bad faith on the part of the nation’s citizens,” explained Randall. “To place a component of the Department of Justice in the hands of someone who believes in ‘systemic racism’ is to remake the Department of Justice into an agency that presumes irremediable bad faith on the part of the nation’s citizens. The nation’s citizens therefore may justly presume the irremediable bad faith of the Department of Justice in all areas in which it acts — including, of course, higher education.”
The left has done a 180 on race since the 1960s. Individualism and judging people by their actions and character has been replaced by the old tribal notions of treating people as stereotypes, mere members of a group.
False ideas have consequences, when put to use by identity politicians for political gain.
Elections have consequences too. Anti-white racism will now be pursed from the top by the US Government.
