Ibram X. Kendi on the solution for America's "metastatic" racism

CBS News Monday, 12 August 2019
The El Paso shooting put racism and racial issues back at the center of the political debate in America. A Pew Research Center poll from April finds more than half of American adults think race relations are bad, and getting worse. Now, Ibram Kendi, the founding director of the Antiracist Research & Policy Center at American University is on a mission to set the country on a new path toward equality. In his new book, "How to Be an Antiracist," Kendi calls racism "a cancer," and explains how readers can shift their thinking to stop it.
