To be fair here, Larry Elder took the first swing. We imagine Elder‚Äôs doing quite well as a popular broadcaster, but as we recently reported, ‚ÄúHow to Be an Antiracist‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúAntiracist Baby‚ÄĚ author Ibram X. Kendi was paid $20,000 by the University of Michigan for a one-hour Zoom session ‚ÄĒ imagine how many of those he does a year, not to mention the $10 million check he got from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
Only in America can black victicrats like @DrIbram become wealthy by telling white people how they prevent black people from becoming wealthy.

Only in America can Black people become wealthy by telling White people they have 10 times the median wealth of Black people because they are superior‚ÄĒand not racism. No need to finance minstrel shows any more when they can finance Larry Elder. https://t.co/aADZx1YyL8

.@DrIbram, I invite you on my show to discuss the root cause of black income/net worth ‚Äúinequality.‚ÄĚ I‚Äôll follow you. Please follow me back so we can make arrangements. Looking forward to our discussion. https://t.co/BoP52jvdTA

I won't be joining your minstrel show. But here's a book list if you care to learn about the causes of the racial wealth gap.
The Whiteness of Wealth
The Sum of Us
The Color of Money
The Half Has Never Been Told
From Here to Equality
The Color of Wealth
The Color of Law

I love he just throws down random books with the assumption they contain the answer. Not ‚Äúhere‚Äôs one take for your consideration‚ÄĚ but instead ‚Äúhere‚Äôs the gospel of our religion‚ÄĚ.

I notice you don‚Äôt have Have Thomas Sowell on your list. Just reading one of his books would be better use of your time than all of those books. Also Walter Williams would be another great option as well but you never mention those two great economists/thinkers.

You should add some Thomas Sowell to your book collection. He‚Äôs a good read; you won‚Äôt be disappointed.

Surely if you are confident in your own ideas, a discussion on the topic is healthy?

Kendi‚Äôs time is valuable ‚ÄĒ why waste it on a radio show where he doesn‚Äôt get paid?
Stunning and brave. Glad your assertions are so solid that you never have to defend them.

Anyone that can‚Äôt debate and articulate their beliefs, instead just gives you book titles, is a fraud. Malcolm X debated everyone. Why? Because he actually believed what he was saying. You are coming off as a fraud. You should be salivating at this opportunity

The reason you never debate or even discuss opposing viewpoints is because you‚Äôre a hack and a grifter who can‚Äôt even take a Twitter ratio without crying like a bitch
