John McWhorter at Persuasion describes America’s third-wave anti-racists as ‘millennials with lattes’. A better description still is ‘The Elect’. This appellation indicates the smugness and danger this thinking represents as its adherents come to occupy high-status institutional positions and influence educational agendas:
Talking of Antiracist Baby, I am especially dismayed at the idea of this indoctrination infecting my daughters’ sense of self. I can’t always be with them, and this anti-humanist ideology may seep into their school curriculum. I shudder at the thought: teachers with eyes shining at the prospect of showing their antiracism by teaching my daughters that they are poster children rather than individuals.
