Monica Cannon-Grant is the founder of the non-profit Violence in Boston, a campaign organizer for Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, District Attorney Rachael Rollins, and Senatorial candidate Joe Kennedy, and is arguably the face of the black lives matter movement in Boston.

Her racist tirade (vulgarity in spoilers):

Content Warning: Vulgar imagery and offensive terms used
Spoiler:
Show

“This heffer running against Ayanna Pressley. This one here with the white husband. At some point we gonna have to have a conversation with black folks who get in a conversation with white folks and then forget that they black.”


Spoiler:
Show

If white vagina and white penises jeopardize your melanin then we need you to sit in the back of the classroom and this ain’t your part of the show and you don’t get to talk right now.

“Regardless of how many white penises you ride, and I ain’t mad at you sis because if you riding that mother ****** for a credit score get you that house boo. Get you that 40 acres and a mule. Just don’t forget you a ******.”


In regards to black men who inter-marry with black women:

Spoiler:
Show


“He getting pink uncooked vagina. I get it, I get it. But what I need you to do though is keep your mouth shut on black **** if you ain’t ready to be black”



In regards to Campbell’s alleged lack of “blackness” which Cannon-Grant refers to as “melanin-adjacent.”
Spoiler:
Show

“I’ll be damned if I let this melanin adjacent woman, whose proximity to white supremacy is so disgusting, be disrespectful to our congresswoman because white folks have convinced her that she was better. She’s an exceptional *****? Is that what it is?”

Hiya, just so you know I've edited the post to add a few more spoilers, a slightly more obvious warning and completely started out the offensive words (as per TSR rules). Hope that's okay. :yy:




As for the story itself, it is of course concerning to hear such things coming from such a prominent figure. I do hope though that we'll be able to discuss this without making wild claims that generalise things about groups of people based on the actions of an individual.

You also removed the video of her. Why not just put it in a spoiler?

At what point does BLM inc. continue to keep quiet and not address these radicals like this Boston comrade and their Toronto leader before we can call them out for harboring and protecting racists and supremacists?

An inevitable outcome of the mainstreaming and normalising of racialised thinking under the facade of "antiracism" which itself is a natural byproduct of identity politics.

That's one of the few good things that's come out of all this - slowly uniting the centre-left and centre-right under some solid ground.

I think, and I hope, identify politics doesn’t stick around that much longer. I believe it will slowly fade out much like how it slowly trickled in.

That’ll only happen once we fully recognise 1) it’s existence, 2) it’s embedded into multiple sectors of society, 3) It’s toxicity in Left AND Right politics

It's already collapsing in on itself without needing any critics to lift a finger. Identity and victimhood competition is causing sectarian wars within all the camps (gender, race, sexuality, religion, disability etc.).

That's certainly true, as we've seen with CHAZ/CHOP.

I still do think it'll take time to dismantle.

It is quite interesting seeing the err 'anti racist' lot adopting the same language as neo-nazis, implying or actively calling other blacks race traitors and the like. I trust the irony is not lost on these somewhat simple people?

It's quite an impressive turnaround from previous times where people actively sought to distance themselves from anything that might reflect poorly on them. Now this race to who is most hard done by.. its, not to put too fine a point on it, pathetic.

They've been doing that for some time. As I mentioned on another thread about this, BLM or their equivalents have been calling black Tories and black cops bounties and coconuts for years now.

Just wanted to state that I think you do a really decent job of moderating. It’s not an easy job, I, sure 🤔

that's the great thing about defining racism in a way that means only white people can be racist.. it means you can label every tiny tiny micro aggression carried out by a white person as racist.. while simultaneously ignoring overtly racially-prejudiced/discriminatory actions by non-white people, without feeling like a hypocrite.

Its clever - evil, manipulative and dishonest - but clever.

Great time to be a racist black person though, or a black supremacist..

If I had my way we wouldn't have trigger warnings on TSR. Unfortunately they not only exist but get misused hilariously.
