Co-Founder Of Los Angeles BLM Chapter Cries ‘Racist’

The word ‘racism’ has become a buzzword. It’s been thrown around so carelessly and so often over the past decade or more, that it has lost its meaning and impact.

True racial issues are thrown under the rug in favor of nonissues that some people wish were racist, so they can fit a popular narrative. Add this next example to that Mount Everest-sized list.

Melina Abdullah is a co-founder of the Los Angeles chapter of the Black Lives Matter organization, as well as a Pan-African Studies professor at Cal State University Los Angeles.

But based on her recent tweets about Taylor Swift, it appears whatever intelligence this woman may have possessed, has gone completely out the window. That tends to happen when people get emotional, or speak before they think.

Abdullah lit the fuse on a contentious stretch of posts on X, when she kicked things off by asking this question:

“Why do I feel like it’s slightly racist to be a Taylor Swift fan?”

After that, the Twitterverse let her have it. And she could not elaborate on her thought process, even when people simply asked her why she thought it was racist to be a Taylor Swift fan. All she could say was:

“I said FEEL, not think. Kind of like that feeling I get when I see too many American flags.”
The crazy thing about all this, was that this exchange was all during the halftime show. After the Chiefs won the Super Bowl, Abdullah cranked things up to 11.

“Why do I feel like this was some right-wing, white-supremacist conspiracy?!?! Boooo!”
But that was only the beginning of the saga. Two weeks after the Super Bowl, she received a phone call from a man calling himself Ethan George.

The phone call was filled with expletives, which we won’t post here. But some of what George said in his hate-filled voicemail was, “How dare you throw out the racist ideas you throw out on a daily basis? I hope you f— die!”

While Abdullah’s perspective makes no logical sense to anyone with a fully functioning brain, Ethan George did not help the situation. He only made things worse by raising the temperature. He reinforced and fed into her false, racist belief by his poor behavior, which led her to write and post to X again on February 23.

“Alright, Ethan George from Texas… if this is what a tweet about Taylor Swift fans being ‘slightly racist’ brings, I’ll edit myself… Y’all are full-fledged violent white-delusionists.”

But believe it or not, this isn’t the first time Abdullah has said crazy things. A post on X dated June 13, 2022 essentially told white people that they couldn’t celebrate Juneteenth.

Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when Major General Gordon Granger of the Union Army ordered the enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation in Texas, thus legally freeing the last of the slaves.

But based on her post on X from 2022, Abdullah certainly didn’t have the same freedom-loving spirit toward others.

“Attention white people… Please don’t ask if you can come to the cookout… Juneteenth is Freedom Day for Black folks. It should be Reparations Day for white folks.”

For her third and final bad take, Abdullah was also one of the loudest voices supporting actor Jussie Smollett in December 2021.

What’s even more mind-boggling, is that this was after it had been discovered that the whole crime was staged by Smollett. He paid two Nigerian brothers to make it look like he had suffered a racist attack.

But Abdullah’s statement on the Black Lives Matter website read:

“In our commitment to abolition, we can never believe police, especially the Chicago Police Department (CPD) over Jussie Smollett, a Black man who has been courageously present, visible, and vocal in the struggle for Black freedom. While policing at-large is an irredeemable institution, CPD is notorious for its long and deep history of corruption, racism, and brutality.”

These certainly are trying times when it comes to racial relations. But what Melina Abdullah is doing and saying is no way to fix them. She’s only making things worse. She’s yelling and screaming and showing how ugly her racist attitude is, without doing anything to solve the problem of divisiveness.

When are we going to realize the dream that Martin Luther King Jr. had for this nation? When are we going to judge people not on the color of their skin but on the content of their character? It sadly seems like we have a long way to go.
