I have long argued that the end-game of the “politically correct” crowd is a full-blown totalitarian state comparable to fascism and communism. This article is an example.
Ibram X. Kendi is an influential figure in the “social justice” movement. The essence of what he is proposing here amounts to giving a single government agency the power to overrule any other policies made by any kind of organization or institution anywhere. Would this only apply to the public sector or to the private sector as well? What about the Supreme Court? Could the Department of Anti-Racism overrule the court? If it is determined there is not enough of some particular group in, say, the medical profession, will hospitals be ordered to hire more doctors of some specific ethnic background? What counts as a “race” for these purposes anyway? This idea is eerily reminiscent of the Khomeinist Council of Guardians or William Pierce’s idea of the highest body of government as some kind of racist religious order.

To fix the original sin of racism, Americans should pass an anti-racist amendment to the U.S. Constitution that enshrines two guiding anti-racist principals: Racial inequity is evidence of racist policy and the different racial groups are equals. The amendment would make unconstitutional racial inequity over a certain threshold, as well as racist ideas by public officials (with “racist ideas” and “public official” clearly defined). It would establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for preclearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won’t yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.
