The National Book Award goes to a ridiculous racist. The 2015 National Book Award winner wrote that the police officers and firefighters who dashed in to save people in the World Trade Center on 9/11 were “menaces of nature” and “not human to me”.

After the National Book Foundation disgraced itself with its award to Ta-Nehisi Coates’s bizarre racist tract, Between the World and Me, in which white people, even if they’re saving lives after a terrorist attack, are not human, it decided to go one worse with its 2016 winner who insists that a post-racial society is a racist idea.

That’s Ibram X. Kendi, an assistant professor of African American History at the University of Florida, who won for Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America.
Like Coates, Kendi appears to come from a black nationalist family and Stamped is another black nationalist tract.

Stamped from the Beginning claims to narrate “the entire history of racist ideas, from their origins in fifteenth-century Europe”. Apparently racist ideas had not existed for all of human history until the Europeans invented them around the same time as the printing press and the muzzle-loaded rifle.
