Ted Cruz accidentally skyrockets sales of anti-racism literature

Ted Cruz struggles to stay out of the headlines and today is no different. He’s skyrocketing book sales for Ibrahim X. Kendi’s picture book, Antiracist Baby, and other enlightened antiracists, which you can be sure was not his intention.

If you haven’t been following along, Senator Cruz had the audacity to ask Harvard-educated SCOTUS nominee Judge Ketanji Brown if she thinks “babies are racist.” The question was asked as Senator Cruz held a copy of Ibrahim X. Kendi’s picture book Antiracist Baby, which explains that babies are taught to be racist or anti-racist – and now it’s flying off the shelves .

Judge Jackson graciously responded to Cruz, later sharing her understanding that “critical race theory is an academic theory that deals with how race interacts with various institutions.”

While we applaud Judge Ketanji Brown for her “when they go low, we go high” approach, well, we’re a little meaner than that. Do you remember the time Senator Cruz ditched his constituents for sunnier skies as they froze during an arctic blast and a statewide power grid outage? ? Of course you do. Well, this is our Cancun and we love seeing Senator Cruz’s notoriety have the exact opposite effect he intended.

Get in on the action and grab that book you wanted to read, but haven’t read yet. Critical Race Theory, The End of Policing and How To Be An Antiracist are all great informative books relevant to our lives. And hey, there’s no better time than the present to pick one up!

We’re guessing Ted Cruz’s ability to skyrocket sales of Ibrahim X. Kendi and other anti-racism authors is relatively on-brand, given that he’s often been deemed contradictory. His stance against critical race theory and our collective move towards equity only furthers the movement and we are all for it. Let’s all pick up a copy of Antiracist Baby today and show Senator Cruz how we plan to use his ignominy for the greater good.
