A professor at Cal State University known for her involvement in Black Lives Matter criticized the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory and Taylor Swift fandom as examples of “white supremacy.”

Melina Abdullah, who teaches Pan-African Studies and co-founded the LA BLM chapter, posted on social media that the Super Bowl result was a “right-wing, white supremacist conspiracy.”

She said feeling uncomfortable with too many American flags or being a Taylor Swift fan stems from similar “feelings.”

“Why do I feel like it’s slightly racist to be a Taylor Swift fan?” Abdullah wrote on X.

“Kind of like that feeling I get when there are too many American flags,” she wrote.

“Folks think they’re attacking me by asking why I think everything is racist…I’m not offended. Virtually everything is racist,” she wrote separately.

Abdullah is no stranger to controversy, having tweeted that white people shouldn’t ask to attend “Juneteenth cookouts” as it should be a “reparations day.”

Her father was a union organizer and grandfather opposed the Nazi regime.

Abdullah changed her surname after marriage but kept it following divorce.

She describes herself as a Black Lives Matter organizer and believes “virtually everything is racist.”
