Pathetic: White Liberal Author Lectured Children About Whiteness Next to Kaepernick Poster

National Sentinel, September 25, 2018

A white liberal Brooklyn-based author recently spouted Left-wing propaganda to small children regarding ‘whiteness’ and “racism” at a North Dakota school while kneeling next to former NFL kneeler Colin Kaepernick.

Anastasia Higginbotham, author of a book titled “Not My Idea: A Book about Whiteness,” read the self-illustrated picture book to “teach kids to stand up to racism,” as The Jamestown Sun reported.

“Colin Kaepernick kneels for justice. He kneels for an end to police brutality. He kneels for equity in education and economic justice,” Higginbotham said, according to Lifezette.

She further noted, “I’m not afraid to look at a painful history, a history in which people who look like me did things they never should have done. I want to look at that history. It’s my fight and my liberation that is tied up in black liberation.”


Lifezette reported further:

Higginbotham’s “Ordinary Terrible Things” series of children’s books — of which “Not My Idea” is a part — “uses children’s point of view and the author’s own child-like illustrations to discuss touchy subjects in books,” according to The Sun.


“Not My Idea” was published by Dottir Press, a feminism-centric venture founded by Jennifer Baumgardner last year. The company’s website indicates that it works “to fill the absences in both our history and present culture through storytelling in all forms and for all ages.”
