The co-founder of BLM criticizes Taylor Swift fans, labeling them as racists, and refers to the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl win led by Travis Kelce as part of a right-wing, white-supremacist conspiracy.

In a series of posts on X, formerly known as Twitter, Melina Abdullah, a 51-year-old professor of Pan-African Studies at Cal State University Los Angeles and co-founder of a Black Lives Matter chapter, criticized Taylor Swift fans as ‘racists’ and characterized Kansas City’s Super Bowl victory as part of a ‘right-wing, white-supremacist conspiracy’.

She expressed her views regarding the pop singer and her athlete boyfriend over a span of two weeks, including a tweet on February 11 questioning the racial implications of being a Taylor Swift fan on the day of the Super Bowl.

Continuing her discussion, she clarified, “I said FEEL, not think,” in response to a user’s request for further explanation.

She likened the sentiment to the feeling she experiences when encountering an abundance of American flags.

Hours later, following the announcement of the Kansas City Chiefs’ victory, Abdullah posted: “Why do I sense this was a right-wing, white-supremacist conspiracy?!?! Booooooo!!!!”

Abdullah reaffirmed her position, stating, “Folks believe they’re challenging me by questioning why I perceive everything as racist… I’m not offended.

The reality is, virtually everything is racist.”

In response to a commenter, the advocate clarified, “And I’ve also committed myself to working tirelessly alongside a community of dedicated individuals to dismantle racism and oppression.”

On February 23, Abdullah took to social media again to share a voice message from a man identified as Ethan George from Texas, who criticized her as “a joke,” “ignorant,” and blamed her for what he perceived as issues in the country.

The man expressed a desire for her demise, prompting Abdullah to respond, “If facing such hostility over a tweet about Taylor Swift fans being ‘slightly racist’ is the outcome, I’ll exercise caution in my words…

You all embody violent white delusion.”

Additionally, the 51-year-old serves as a co-director of BLM’s advocacy arm, Black Lives Matter Grassroots.
