The Washington Post published an article Thursday that called for a constitutional amendment to ban inequality and racist speech.
As part of the publication’s series published Thursday called, “Fix this democracy—now, 38 ideas for repairing our badly broken civic life,” the Post featured author Ibram X. Kendi’s proposal for “A Constitutional Amendment On Equality.”
Kendi writes that the United States needs, “an Anti-Bigotry Amendment that would constitutionalize a critical principle: Group inequity is evidence of discrimination.”
“The amendment would make group inequity illegal and ban the incitement of bigotry, as the incitement of anti-Semitism is banned in Germany. Claims that inequity is evidence of a group’s dysfunction or inferiority would be outlawed. The amendment would establish equality as a human right and inequality as anti-American and anti-human,” he continues, seemingly endorsing a crackdown on free speech.[contentcards url=”http://dailycaller.com/2017/10/27/wapo-article-calls-for-amendment-to-ban-the-incitement-of-bigotry/” target=”_blank”]
