* "He defiantly argues that calling Ebonics broken English is as hypocritical and racist as viewing English as a fixed language." (If you want to hear some great original black spoken, find a native from Johns Island, South Carolina who speaks Gullah. Gullah is lyrical and authentic. - Book Snob)
* "Kendi suggests that just like cancer can be healed, so too can racism be abolished in every facet. First, by shrinking the tumors (self-interest) through chemotherapy (a collection of antiracist policies), then removing the tumors that remain through surgery (eliminating the clutter of racist policies that survive). Afterward, he suggests that we should ensure clear margins are maintained by ensuring no cancerous cells remain to see the light of day. His belief is a utopia where antiracism will rule the day! (Not exactly. As any cancer survivor knows, the dread that it may come back is always there. See below for real heart healing.)
* "Kendi rightly argues what history has proven time and again, the assumption that education and moral suasion can change the minds and hearts of racists." (Finally Kendi almost hits upon the REAL solution. We cannot change ourselves. Oh, we can tweak the edges, some, and improve with education and positive experiences, but if we want a true change of heart we need the Spirit of Christ living IN us. As he transforms us from the inside out, seeing every person with his eyes becomes our normal view - Book Snob)
Racism is a matter of the heart. It's a matter of pride. It's a matter of sin. Once someone truly accepts that EVERY person is created in the image of God and therefore that God must be very creative in the types of characters he creates, it's easier to treat your neighbor as you wish to be treated. In Christ there is neither slave nor free, black nor white. We are one body in him.
Good summary of one man's journey towards enlightenment. May we all continue walking towards the light.
