This could be one of the dumbest tweets in the history of Twitter from a blue check, and that’s saying something.
Here’s Harvard professor Laurence Tribe getting abortion and white supremacy completely wrong:
White Supremacists oppose abortion because they fear itâll reduce the number of white infants and thus contribute to what they fear as non-white âreplacement.â Never underestimate the way these issues and agendas are linked. This turns âintersectionalityâ on its head.

He has to know this, right?
Most white supremacists…support abortion. They think it is a way to control the population of 'undesirables'.

The truth is not palatable for libs, however:
Actually, white supremacists and the alt-right are notoriously pro-abortion when it comes to minorities. But of course itâs much more convenient to ignore the eugenic leanings of early abortion-rights advocates and pretend the pro-life movement is linked to white supremacy. https://t.co/xUgZ7ksLWi

He’s wrong on the data, too:
This manages to stand on its head both the data (abortion reduces the black population, in particular, proportionately more than the white population) & the arguments (white nationalists tend to favor abortion & population control for precisely these reasons). https://t.co/CkgPw7CsuY

This is incredibly ignorant and completely backwards. According to the CDC, African Americans made up 36% of abortions in 2015 despite only making up ~13.4% of the population. Minorities made up the majority of abortions. https://t.co/DAJRLI91r2

And this is just horrifying:
In 2015,NYC pregnancy outcomes statistics showedđđž23,116 black babies were born while 25,698 were aborted.
More killed than born.
A black baby is 2.7 times more likely to be aborted than a white baby.

Over to you, Harvard:
Laurence Tribe is on the faculty of the most prestigious university in America. That epitomizes our university system perfectly. https://t.co/xtkjWlBmPb
