Ibram X. Kendi Says Felony Murder Laws Are 'Racist'

Race hustler Ibram X Kendi (born Henry Rogers) is working to get felony murder laws abolished in the name of fighting anti-black racism.

"Massachusetts's felony-murder rule still imposes disproportionate sentences and leads to racial disparities," Kendi said in a statement for his Boston University Center for Antiracist Research.

"CAR's amicus brief argued that felony-murder prosecutions are racist and the racial disparities will persist under the current felony-murder rule in MA," Kendi's statement continued. "The felony murder rule leads to life without parole sentences that disproportionately target people of color."

"To prevent the continuation of disproportionate unconstitutionally cruel, and racist sentencing, CAR's amicus brief argued that the felony-murder doctrine should be abolished."

Kendi's move follows Democrats in Maryland pushing a similar "antiracist" bill to shield anyone under 25 from being charged with felony murder due to their "frontal lobes not being fully developed."

We should actually consider expanding our laws to hold shysters like Kendi responsible for the surge in murder and other violent crimes which their policies have produced.
