Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey contributed $10 million to Boston University’s Center for Antiracist Research last month, only a few weeks after it was started by controversial scholar Dr. Ibram Kendi, the university has announced.
Dorsey gave the money to help the organization “inform and fuel much needed and overdue policy change,” Fox News reported.
But Fox pointed out that the official announcement of the donation came soon after controversial comments made by Kendi on Twitter against Judge Amy Coney Barrett, when he appeared to equate the Supreme Court nominee to a “white colonizer” for her decision to adopt two children from Haiti by suggesting some white parents adopt black children to use as “props.”
Many have harshly slammed Kendi for those comments, saying it is incredulous that someone could be accused of racism for taking in unwanted children and giving them a loving home.
Kendi has responded to the criticism by tweeting that “It is a belief too many White people have: if they have or adopt a child of color, then they can’t be racist.”
He went on to give the explanation that “I’m challenging the idea that White parents of kids of color are inherently ‘not racist’ and the bots completely change what I’m saying to ‘White parents of kids of color are inherently racist.’
