Black Lives Matter has attracted controversy ever since the racially charged group rose to prominence in 2014.
Many believe the group as inherently racist.
And new comments by a Black Lives Matter co-founder only adds fuel to the fire.
Yusra Khogali is the co-founder of Black Lives Matter in Toronto.
She ignited a firestorm of criticism when she posted on her Facebook that white people are genetic defects and inferior to black people.
Heat Street reported:
“In a Facebook post, Black Lives Matter Toronto co-founder Yusra Khogali went on a rant, arguing that black people are the superior race because white people possess “genetic defects” that make them lesser humans, according to the Toronto Sun.
“Whiteness is not humxness, in fact, white skin is sub-humxn,” she wrote. “All phenotypes exist within the black family and white ppl are a genetic defect of blackness.”
She continued explaining her theory, claiming white people are lesser because “[they] have a higher concentration of enzyme inhibitors that suppress melanin production. They are genetically deficient because melanin is present at the inception of life.”
That was just the start of Khogali’s ranting.
She continued on and explained how “whiteness” was a recessive gene and the white race could be wiped out by blacks.
Heat Street also reported:
“Melanin enables Black skin to capture light and hold it in its memory mode which reveals that blackness converts light into knowledge. Melanin directly communicates with cosmic energy,” she added.
Khogali then proclaimed: “White ppl are recessive genetic defects. This is factual.”
The Black Lives Matter leader then wondered how the White race could be wiped out. According to her, “Black ppl simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the power to.”
“Do you ever wonder how Black ppl after centuries of colonial violence, genocide, and destruction—no matter what systems created to make us extinct… How we keep coming back? It is because we are superhumans,” she added.”
This isn’t Black Lives Matter’s first brush with racial controversy.
Last August, the group published a manifesto of policy demands which many of their critics described as racist and Marxist.
Their platform calls for reparations, protesting Israel through boycotts and divestment, and “economic justice”.
Writing in National Review, David French stated:
“Black Lives Matter is an instrument not of justice and reconciliation but rather of violence and revolution. It’s shot through with its own form of racism — anti-Semitism — and with authoritarian demands that would not only strip Americans of their constitutional rights but bankrupt our nation and render it vulnerable to its enemies abroad. Doubt me? Read the organization’s own words.”
The radicalism and racism of Black Lives Matter is well established.
Khogali’s incendiary remarks are just a continuation of the disturbing pattern of ugly divisiveness that has come to define the movement.
