Yusra Khogali argued that white people are “recessive genetic defects” and purportedly mused about how the race could be “wiped out,” by black people, according to a post on her Facebook page.
Toronto Sun Khogali, according to her Facebook page, is a community activist who “uses her art as a form of resistance to challenge various forms of Canadian state-sanctioned anti-blackness.”
Khogali has a track record of inflammatory, divisive rhetoric.
Only last week during a protest in front of the US consulate Khogali shouted into a microphone that “Justin Trudeau is a white supremacist terrorist” and urged the crowd to “rise up and fight back.” “Look at us, we have the numbers,” she said.
She also faced controversy in the news for a tweet posted a year agostating: “Plz Allah give me strength to not cuss/kill these men and white folks out here today.”Khogali has since placed her Twitter account under protected status and has refused to comment on the controversial Tweet.
While these remarks alarmed many Canadians, they pale in comparison to a statement numerous sources forwarded to the Sun that Khogali appears to have posted on Facebook in late 2015.
“Whiteness is not humxness,” the statement begins. “infact, white skin is sub-humxn.” The post goes on to present a genetics-based argument centred on melanin and enzyme.
“White ppl are recessive genetic defects. this is factual,” the post reads towards the end. “white ppl need white supremacy as a mechanism to protect their survival as a people because all they can do is produce themselves. black ppl simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the power to.”
But her thesis doesn’t pass muster for one of America’s leading scholars of the history of eugenics.
“The document mirrors the racism of American eugenicists who claimed in the first third of the 20th century that native whites were genetically superior not only to blacks but also to immigrants from Eastern and Southern Europe,” Daniel Kevles, a professor at Yale University, wrote to the Sun. “Their claims were without any scientific foundation and added up to expressions of naked white racism.”
The BLM Toronto website explains their stated goals are “to dismantle all forms of state-sanctioned oppression, violence and brutality committed against African, Caribbean, and Black cis, queer, trans, and disabled populations in Toronto.”
