Kristin Clarke is Joe Biden’s appointee as DOJ head of Civil Rights Division.  But, while a president of the Black Student Association at Harvard in 1994, she wrote in the Harvard Crimson newspaper that black people have “greater mental, physical and spiritual abilities.”

In order to back up her claims, she cited ideas from psychiatrist Richard King who authored the book Melanin: A Key To Freedom and said that “locus coeruleus structure in the human brain “is Black because it contains large amounts of (neuro) melanin which is essential for its operation” while asserting that melanin is “chemical basis for the cultural differences between Blacks and whites.”  She also believes that “whites are unable to produce melanin because their pineal glands are often calcification or non-functioning…Pineal calcification rates with Africans are five to 15 percent, Asians 15 to 25 percent and Europeans 60 to 80 percent.”

She was also accused of inviting an anti-Semite to the Harvard campus.

The Daily Caller reports:

She added that “Black infants sit, stand, crawl, and walk sooner than whites” and that “melanin endows Blacks with greater mental, physical and spiritual abilities — something which cannot be measured based on Eurocentric standards.”

…She accused “conservative whites” of exacerbating the impact of racism on black children, while “liberal whites” underestimate it. She added that it appeared that “whites have grown tired of hearing about racism” so they accepted the notions described in “The Bell Curve.”

But that isn’t all.

She also penned an op-ed in January clearly calling for the “strategic” defunding of police and then lied on Wednesday, saying “I do not support defunding the police,” suggesting the words were somehow taken out of context.

Here are the words.  You tell us if there is anything to misunderstand.

“We must invest less in police and more in social workers. …

We must invest less in police and more in social supports in our schools. …

We must invest less in police and more in mental health aid.”

She may not want to abolish all police like Rashida Tlaib or kill all cops like BLM, but she certainly does want to defund them to a large extent.
