Ted Cruz ‘Antiracist Baby’ comments cause Amazon book sales to spike

An award-winning culture author and Florida A&M University graduate is topping Amazon’s best sellers after GOP Sen. Ted Cruz chided his “Antiracist Baby” children’s book as an example of critical race theory during the Senate confirmation hearing for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Cruz attempted to use the 24-page board book as a political prop during his remarks to Jackson, a Supreme Court justice nominee who is poised to become the first Black woman to serve on the highest court.

“Do you agree with this book that is being taught to children that babies are racist?” he asked Tuesday, arguing that the book, and others like it, were being used to promote tainted views on race in some schools.

Jackson responded no child should be made to feel like they’re racist or don’t have value.

“Senator, I have not reviewed any of those books, any of those ideas, they don’t come up in my work as a judge, which I’m respectfully here to address in my work as a judge. Which is evidenced from my near decadence on the bench,” Jackson said.
