The perpetually-pissed-off Yusra Khogali, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, was at Toronto City Hall the other day to receive an award for something called the Pam McConnell Award for Young Women in Leadership.
Why is the city awarding and applauding someone who spews vile, racist rhetoric?
Last year, a Toronto Sun story by Anthony Furey revealed that Khogali argued that white people are “recessive genetic defects.” She also purportedly pondered how the white race could be “wiped out.”
“Plz Allah give me strength to not cuss/kill these men and white folks out here today. Plz plz plz.”
Khogali has never apologized for any of this racist rhetoric.
What if Khogali wasn’t a black Muslim female but a white Christian male? Would she be up for an award?
More like hate crime — or hate speech charges, at least.
