Ibram Kendi’s ‘Antiracist’ Center Suffers Layoffs Despite Making Millions

The research center for far-left academic activist Ibram X. Kendi has suffered from organizational disarray, a minimal work output, and mass layoffs in recent weeks, despite having received millions of dollars in donations.

As The Daily Caller reports, Boston University’s Center for Antiracist Research, run by Kendi, has produced just two research papers in the over three years since its foundation; the first presented a bizarre theory that associating “merit with idealized images of White masculinity provoke unconscious distress in White men who aspire to meet those ideals,” while the other presented an analysis of the differences in architecture between White neighborhoods and minority neighborhoods.

Earlier this month, the center had to lay off almost half of its workforce, firing between 15 to 20 members of its 45-person staff.

Created in June of 2020 in the aftermath of the accidental fentanyl death of George Floyd, its purpose was allegedly to “create novel and practical ways to understand, explain, and solve seemingly intractable problems of racial inequity and injustice.”

Immediately following the center’s foundation, it received millions from multiple left-wing megadonors and organizations. Twitter founder Jack Dorsey donated $10 million to the center, while the Rockefeller Foundation gave $1.5 million. The Ford Foundation gave $900,000, and George Soros’ Foundation to Promote Open Society donated $137,558.

Despite being touted by the mainstream media as an academic thinker and a brilliant scholar, Kendi’s PhD was in African-American studies, which he received from Temple University in 2010. In high school, Kendi’s GPA was a mere 3.0, while his SAT score was about 1000.
