Black Lives Matter Toronto co-founder Yusra Khogali was criticized after she argued on social media that black people are a superior race because white people are "sub-humxn" who suffer from "recessive genetic defects," and how they could be wiped out.

Khogali made these comments in a Facebook post she wrote late 2015, which was since deleted but screenshots of the post surfaced Monday when people began commenting on her recent activity. During a protest last week in front of the U.S. consulate in Toronoto, Khogali shouted slogans like "Justin Trudeau is a white supremacist terrorist" and encouraged the crowd to "rise up and fight back."

Born in 1991, the Black Lives Matter leader came under fire for her comments on Trudeau and her earlier post in which she wrote "whiteness is not humxness." Toward the end, it read: "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."

Khogali proceeded to go on an extended pseudoscientific rant about the benefits of dark skin. The post said: "melanin enables black skin to capture light and hold it in its memory mode which reveals that blackness converts light into knowledge,” she claims at one point. "melanin directly communicates with cosmic energy."

This was not the first time Khogali faced criticism over her actions. A tweet from April 2016 was widely covered by several media outlets and had created outrage among the public. However, she deleted the post after people started talking about it.
