As Twitchy reported the other night, Ibram X. Kendi made it clear he won’t be appearing on Larry Elder’s “minstrel show” — and why should he when he can make five figures an hour doing Zoom sessions. We reported that the University of Michigan had paid Kendi $20,000 for a one-hour Zoom session and wondered just how many of these sessions he does a year. Quite a few, we’d wager.

Now we’re learning that Fairfax County Public Schools in Virginia in August paid Kendi $20,000 for a virtual session for staffers. Fox 5 DC reports:

The district says it was a timely topic selected by the staff – but it comes at a time when people are scrambling for funds to address how to navigate distance learning and in-person learning for students.

They say Kendi is a scholar in the subject matter – and that he spoke virtually to Fairfax County Public Schools officials and the school board at a leadership conference in August.

He spoke about how to cultivate an anti-racist school community.

The criticism surfaced on Twitter, when several users questions Kendi’s bill amid the pandemic.

Did domestic terrorists show up at the school board meeting after learning about this expenditure? Notice the district says the topic was selected by the staff.

Critical race theory isn’t real, but it should be in our public schools.

And Kendi wouldn’t go on Larry Elder’s minstrel show to talk about wealth inequity while he accepts $10 million checks from Twitter’s CEO.
