1619 Project’s Leader Deletes Tweet Claiming “Tipping Is A Legacy Of Slavery”

(FreedomBeacon.com)- Extreme left-wing activist and clown lookalike Nikole Hannah-Jones, who famously founded the racist, revisionist “1619 Project,” deleted a tweet on Tuesday in which she claimed that tipping waiters and waitresses in restaurants is a system that has deep roots in slavery.

And the news networks take this woman seriously?

Jones, who is an advocate of Critical Race Theory, made the insane comment in response to a tweet from former MSNBC anchor Toure Neblett who criticized the tipping system.

“Tipping is a legacy of slavery and if it’s not optional then it shouldn’t be a tip but simply included in the bill. Have you ever stopped to think why we tip, like why tipping is a practice in the US and almost nowhere else?” Jones said in the now-deleted tweet.

In response, Neblett said, “America is a slaveocracy, part 1619.”

This just sounds like the ramblings of an edgy 17-year-old who wants people to think they’re cool and interesting, doesn’t it?

Thankfully, this is the internet and the internet never forgets – and historian Phil Magness took a screenshot of the deleted tweet before she got rid of it.

Take a look:

If she’s so adamant about this stuff, why does she make insane claims and then just…delete them?

Why won’t Jones just defend it, if she really thinks it’s true?
