Ibram X. Kendi: The Term “Legal Vote” is a Racist One

Ibram X. Kendi has had himself a hell of a year. With his bestselling book, “How to Be An Antiracist,” Kendi positioned himself at the forefront of the woke movement, taking full advantage of the George Floyd Summer to tell white Americans that if they aren’t actively committed to “antiracist” causes, they are in fact racists. You know, the kind of light reading that makes a country whole again.

Having made serious bank with that tome, Kendi has discovered that there’s a fortune to be made by constantly being the most divisive person in the room. He regularly adds to that reputation on Twitter, where he wrote this week that it’s racist to suggest that there’s any such thing as a “legal vote.” We’re sure Joe Biden is sitting in his basement laughing his butt off.

“The term ‘legal vote’ is as fictionally fraught and functionally racist as the terms ‘illegal alien’ and ‘race neutral’ and ‘welfare queen’ and ‘handouts’ and ‘super predator’ and ‘crackbaby’ and ‘personal responsibility’ and ‘post racial,’” claimed Kendi. “The misinformation of widespread voter fraud—or ‘illegal voting’—in Detroit, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Phoenix where Black and Brown voters predominate is baked into the term ‘legal vote.’ No matter what GOP propaganda says, there’s nothing wrong with those voters and votes.”

The term “personal responsibility” is racist? This is the kind of hard-hitting information you can only get by following a Twitter account like Kendi’s!

“There are so many more terms like this. What did I leave out?” he asked. “What makes a term racist is rarely the term’s literal meaning, and almost always the historical and political context in which the term is being used.”

Sure, sure.

If there is a silver lining to Biden’s win – provided that it WAS a win, anyway – it’s that it might turn Americans away from this woke movement. Granted, that’s far from guaranteed. But it is possible that Trump’s victory and his presidency gave unintended strength to this movement that it won’t have with Democrats in charge of the country. Perhaps commonsense liberals can now unleash their true feelings about these idiotic claims without worrying that people will mistake them for Trump supporters. Maybe we can finally put to bed some of the more fantastical elements of cancel culture and stop letting a tiny percentage of grifters and academics hypnotize us with their nonsense.

Then again, maybe we’re just dreaming.

  1. Sorry dude that pig ain’t gonna fly! This was organized vote fraud to steal an election and somebody must go to prison! All your doing is trying to conceal it!

  2. The main problem with this article is that the author doesn’t understand the difference between overt racism and subtle, systemic racism which is what Kendi and others have described.

  3. Suppose every white voter voted twice. Would those votes be called illegal and therefore someone calling them illegal would be racist?

  4. A BATH and a BOW TIE does NOT turn a PIG into a POODLE . . . “go woke, go BROKE”. And you’ll DESERVE it. Stay out of politics, and you won’t sound TOO STUPID than you ALREADY are. One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump And his allies 2020.

  5. So sorry whoever you are, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it still wont make it beautiful in most people’s eyes! I can only imagine with your attitude what you would find beautiful. Fraud is still fraud, whether you are racist or not and so is a moron!

  6. NO, you are just trying to use a difficult situation to improve your book sales.
    Give it up more people support the black community than you give us credit for.
    It is illegal to prevent any legal U.S. Citizen from voting as long as they are registered to vote. Every black church in the Country was willing to help anyone that needed help Register and Teach them how to vote. So since we know that some ballets were sent to Dead People and Dog’s and in some States allow vote harvesting, it is reasonable that every voter prove that they are American Citizens that is what is meant by “LEGAL VOTE’s”.

    • Exactly…verifiably correct…individual is so set in making sure that he gets his books going he’s digging for oil in a drainage ditch…another insensate individual to the pile of horse muckings in back of the barn…sorry, nuff said.


  8. His pitiful attempt at making legitimate terms sounds racist is sad. I supposed the term “criminal” is racist as well? If someone fits the definition it’s not the fault of the definition, and certainly not the fault of any particular race. What it boils down to is an attempt to silence any opposition by painting them being unable to enter a discussion because they are racist. So basically ad-hominem attacks on a person and not addressing the issues themselves.

  9. It’s racist to call someone racist ! This is getting more stupid everyday , crybabies wanting to get there way by ranting about racism , who cares anymore you’ve over dosed on that lie ! You’ve been free for 200 years and that’s all you’ve amounted too . Get a job , as all Americans have to do .

  10. I’m tired of this crap, not everything is racist. It’s time to stop this BS and these people needs to be called out for fostering all this racial divide, hatred and violence. We are coming very close to a severe backlash against this crap and it’s not going to be pretty when it happens.

  11. “So since we know that some ballets were sent to Dead People and Dog’s [sic]”

    So dogs and dead people might enjoy a nice ballet. What’s the problem?
