New Twitter CEO: No “Difference Between Whites and Racists”

Parag Agrawal, the new CEO of Twitter, previously claimed that the platform should “focus less” on free speech, and tweeted that there is no distinction between white people and racists.

On Monday, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced that he was stepping down from the position effective immediately, and that Twitter’s Chief Technology Officer, Parag Agrawal, would replace him.

Previous disturbing tweets have also been unearthed by keen-eyed Twitter users. In an October 2010 tweet, the new Twitter CEO wrote that “If they are not gonna make a distinction between muslims and extremists, then why should I distinguish between white people and racists.” Although the statement was likely a direct quote from somebody else, it is unclear why Agrawal would have posted such a divisive statement without qualifying it, if he didn’t believe in it…

Andrew Torba, CEO of Alt Tech social media company Gab, argued that the tweet was proof that Agrawal is “anti-white.” National File has reached out to Twitter for comment on what Agrawal meant by his tweet, and asked if the company agreed that re-directing bigotry against an entire racial group is an acceptable response to facing bigotry. This article will be updated with any response from Twitter. Read more…
