Racist policies make racists


“The argument in “Stamped From The Beginning” [by Ibram X. Kendi] is that racist policies don’t follow from racist ideas, the way we normally think they do. Racist ideas follow from racist policies. They are created as rationalizations for racial inequality. . . . Racists don’t make racist policies. Racist policies make racists.”

From the transcript of
Ezra Klein’s discussion with Ibram X. Kendi
