Far-Left Professor Kendi Signs Deal with Netflix

Ibram Kendi, a far-left Boston University professor who frequently espouses anti-White ideas, has secured a deal with the streaming giant Netflix to produce cinematic adaptations of several of his works, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

The deal includes two feature film adaptations of his 2016 book Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America, as well as children’s programming targeting preschool children with “a series of musical animated vignettes” based on his other book Antiracist Baby.

Despite being a self-proclaimed anti-capitalist, the Netflix deal represents the latest in a long line of lucrative deals for Kendi. He was previously paid $20,000 for a single virtual lecture conducted over Zoom in September, where he discussed “anti-racism,” and was paid $10 million by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in June to lead the tech giant’s “anti-racist research center.” In 2019, he was paid $200,000 by the Ford Foundation to work on a “National Anti-Bigotry Project,” and was given another $50,000 to write a “racial reporting guidebook,” although neither of these projects were completed.

Kendi’s latest deal represents the rising mainstream acceptance of far-left “anti-racist” ideas that have taken on a “scholarly” approach, essentially trying to offer academic justification for anti-White sentiment, and repeatedly makes the false claims that America suffers from “systemic racism” and “White privilege.” These ideas directly fueled the summer of violent race riots across the country last year by the far-left groups Antifa and Black Lives Matter, which destroyed many cities, caused over $1 billion in damages, and killed over 20 people.
