#BlackLivesMatter activists have a lot contempt for the alternative "All Lives Matter," so much so that one of the group's founders is praying for the strength not to kill people.
City News reported on a controversial tweet from #BlackLivesMatter Toronto co-founder Yusra Khogali that surfaced on Tuesday. In the tweet, which was originally posted on Feb. 9, Khogali asked Allah to give her strength “to not cuss/kill these men and white folks out here today.”

Rather than take responsibility, fellow #BlackLivesMatter activists blamed the media for exposing her tweet.
“This is extremely frustrating and emotional for me because we slept outside for two weeks to get somebody to care about death in our community and this is what you decided to focus on?" said fellow #BlackLivesMatter activist Sandy Hudson. "It’s very, very, very irresponsible.”
After Khogali's tweet was discovered on Tuesday, she deleted it and made her Twitter account private.
