Clarke did co-author the letter in 1994, which is still available online.
The context is an opposition to the white supremacist book "The bell curve". In this context, Clarke also invited black supremacist and antisemite Tony Martin to speak about the topic.
In a later interview the same year, she said that "The information [contained in the letter] is not necessarily something we believe".
In an interview yesterday, January 13th 2021, she called the invitation of Martin a mistake, denounced his views, and described the letter as being "meant to express an equally absurd point of view" to caricaturize the racist views espoused in the bell curve:
“Giving someone like [antisemite Tony Martin] a platform, it’s not something I would do again,” Clarke said.
Asked if she denounces Martin and his views, Clarke said, “I do, 100%. I unequivocally denounce antisemitism.” [...]
“Fighting antisemitism, racism, white supremacy and all forms of bias are principles and values that have animated my career every step of the way,” she said.
According to Clarke, the letter was in response to views touted by the psychologist Richard Herrnstein and political scientist Charles Murray, in a book titled “The Bell Curve,” [...]. The book, she said, “was generating wide acclaim for its racist views” and her intention in opening the letter “with an absurd claim that Black people are superior based on the melanin in their skin” was to “hold up a mirror to reflect how reprehensible the premise of black inferiority was set.”
“It was meant to express an equally absurd point of view — fighting one ridiculous absurd racist theory with another ridiculous absurd theory,” Clarke explained, “and the goal was all about [exposing] the ugly racist underpinnings of the Bell Curve theory
I was unable to find any equally concerning events involving her after 1994 (though she did support Tamika Mallory in 2019 amidst accusations of antisemitism).
