In honor of her 40th birthday, everyone’s favorite self-righteous, relentlessly irritating Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has launched a work initiative for women.

How does a mother who doesn't have a real job help women get "back to work." Eyeroll. https://t.co/VtMR7n3enT

And speaking of eyerolls, check out how “anti-racist”-but-actually-really-really-racist Professor Ibram X. Kendi wants to help women through Markle’s initiative:
To celebrate the 40th birthday of my friend Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex, I’m donating 40 minutes of mentorship time to a woman reentering the workforce. Will you join me? #40×40 #CompassionInActionhttps://t.co/k3UJennJPH pic.twitter.com/Rh5D8fyAVL

About 1.8 million fewer women were employed in May 2021 compared to February 2020, before COVID-19 swept across the country. Let’s support women as they reenter the workforce. #40×40https://t.co/k3UJennJPH
— Ibram X. Kendi (@DrIbram) August 5, 2021
And what better way to support women than by mentoring one for 40 whole minutes?
Wow 40 entire minutes? https://t.co/dXjJCkkFb5

"I'm so generous that I'll let a regular person (aka a 'non famous person' unlike me and the Duchess) talk to me for 40 minutes! Seriously! 40 whole minutes!!
No . . . stop. You're embarrassing me. I just can't help it; I can't stop helping people. It's a curse."

Ibram X. Kendi is nothing if not generous with his very valuable time.
A whole 40 minutes? That's a long term impact being made right there. Mentorship is a relationship not a publicity stunt.

Hey, man. Ibram X. Kendi’s entire existence is basically one big publicity stunt, so don’t knock it.

I’ll wait until she is sixty. I want a full hour

Ooo, good thinking.
This is so ridiculous and narcissistic in so many ways

Your generosity knows no bounds. I especially like how you had to publicize your “good deed.” Nothing says charity like using it to push your brand.

He fits in well with Meghan Markle’s crew.
— Oliver Cash (@OliverCash9) August 5, 2021
He really does.
So… he’s going to mansplain work to a woman in honor of Meghan Markle?

Lol isn’t this mansplaining? https://t.co/nah8nsQEIK

So you're man-splaining

Lucky woman! Especially if she’s white, because then she’ll get Dr. Kendi’s deluxe mentorship package. Forty minutes of hearing about how white women in the workforce are bad for society because they’re privileged.
Hot damn, that’s funny.
Man who thinks it’s anti-racist to be racist also thinks it’s pro-woman for men to spend 40 minutes teaching women how to work.
All in honor of a rich royal. https://t.co/qXKdOxUEwL
— Jeremy Boreing (@JeremyDBoreing) August 5, 2021
It’s just so perfect when you think about it.
Then the professional racist thought to himself, “A woman could really benefit from my wisdom.”
And the Internet laughed. https://t.co/MBe6DXWe9H

And laughed and laughed and laughed.
Beyond parody. https://t.co/aXQGNEVUmI

I'm beginning to suspect that Andy Kaufman isn't dead and Ibram X. Kendi is his latest stunt. https://t.co/XZpwuSEavo
