A campaign organizer for Ayanna Pressley and Black Lives Matter activist made a controversial and scientifically inaccurate statement involving sexual intercourse between white and black people.
Monica Cannon-Grant, who is a campaign organizer for Rep. Ayanna Presley (D-MA), and a Black Lives Matter activist, was released a video of her ranting about mixed race couples, claiming that black people who have sex with whites “jeopardize” the color of their skin.
Cannon-Grant began by saying, “And then the heifer running against Ayanna Presley, this one here, with the white husband… at some point we are going to have to have a conversation with black folks that get in a relationship with white folks and then forget that they’re black.”

“We’re gonna have to have that conversation,” she went on. “And I know it’s going to f*** with all of your nerves, and it’s going to be uncomfortable, but we’re going to have to have this conversation”
“Because white vaginas and white penises jeopardize your melanin. And we need you to sit in the back of the classroom and listen to your part of the show and you don’t get to talk right now.”
She continued, “And you practice some self-love, know your history, and realize where the f*** you came from–this ain’t your part of the show.”
“We need you to sit in the back. I need all the people who understand what it is to wake up black,” she says before going on a lengthy rant repeatedly using a racial epithet.

Conspiracy theories surrounding melanin continue to spread across the Internet and Black Lives Matter community. Recently, former America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon, fired for anti-white and anti-Semitic remarks he made on his podcast, also peddled a similar pseudoscientific about white people being “closer to animals” due to their lack of melanin to justify his anti-white and anti-Jewish positions on race.
