The twisted psychology of Critical Race Theory racism. Ijeoma Oluo spends a lot of time complaining about her single white mother who took care of her when her black father returned to Nigeria and never came back. Like Obama and Kamala, Ijeoma built a marketable identity by identifying with a father who abandoned her. But the author of such racist texts as “So You Want to Talk About Race and Mediocre: The Dangerous Legacy of White Male America” takes it even further by identifying as Nigerian-American. The Nigerian part is very hypothetical as she was born and raised in America, and her Nigerian father left when she was a year old and broke his promise to return. White people are absolutely terrible, Ijeoma, who is half-white, insists. “I have never been able to escape the fact that I am a black woman in a white supremacist country,” Oluo declaimed at the beginning of So You Want to Talk About Race. The ugly racialist book never broke through the way that Robin DiAngelo or Ibram X. Kendi did, but it was a modest success and is regularly featured at corporate critical race indoctrination sessions.
