A major leader in Toronto's Black Lives Matter movement once asked Allah for strength not to kill white people.
The Tweet, dated February 9 was by Yusra Khogali, the co-founder of Toronto’s Black Lives Matter movement.
In full the tweet reads, “plz Allah give me strength not to cuss/kill these white men and white folks out here today. Plz plz plz.”
Khogali has made violent statements before. At a rally outside police headquarters, she spoke into a megaphone saying, “If you think this is the end, you are irresponsible. It is irresponsible for you to feel safe. Do you hear me police? Do you hear me police? It is irresponsible for you to feel safe. If we are not safe, you are not safe.”
Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne recently met with Black Lives Matter when Khogali asked her, “Why did it take 2 weeks for you to respond to us? For 2 weeks we have been brutalized by police officers in the rain, in the cold.”
Wynne didn't defend the officers who had just been smeared by Khogali.
“I can’t speak to the timeline, I apologize if we haven’t responded as quickly as you would have liked,” she said.
“I am willing to meet with you. We’re going to need your help we are undertaking a review of the SIU we are reviewing all the police oversight bodies we need your help in doing that. You are on the front line. You understand these issues. We need your help in those reviews. We’re going to need to have some private meetings ahead of time but we are willing to have public meetings. I really wanted to come and say that to you – all of these ministers, all have a role to play in getting this right.”
The Black Lives Matter Toronto co-founder has yet to comment on her racist social media posts.
