Black Lives Matter has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons as of late.
The organization’s national founder recently stepped down and the co-founder of a local chapter who has since stepped down also blasted the organization.
Now, a group of mothers gave a blistering statement regarding BLM that has everyone asking a lot of hard questions.
Is BLM a Scam?
When I write about Black Lives Matter, you will notice I am very careful to separate the movement from the organization.
The organization is what I have and continue to go after because I have stated from Day One that I believe it is a scam to exploit minorities rather than help them.
That “feeling” is being proven true with every passing day.
A former co-founder of a local chapter, Rashad Turner, recently made a video to expose the truth about the organization…
BLM founder Patrice Cullors stepped down after it was revealed she was stockpiling millions in real estate.
The organization has spent little, if any, money on community projects, but it has spent millions on salary, travel, and accommodations.
Now the group is getting hit again, with mothers of victims coming forward to obliterate the organization and expose it as a fraud.
Samaria Rice lost a 12-year-old son in 2014, and now she believes Cullors is pulling a fast one.
She stated, “I don’t believe she is going anywhere. It’s all a facade. She’s only saying that to get the heat off her right now.”
She later made the exact point I have been making from the organization’s inception, stating, “They are benefiting off the blood of our loved ones, and they won’t even talk to us.”
Lisa Simpson, the mother of Richard Simpson, who was shot and killed by police in Los Angeles in 2016, agreed that Cullors is pulling a fast one.
On Cullors departure, Simpson stated, “Now she doesn’t have to show her accountability. She can just take the money and run.”
BLM raised roughly $90 million last year, and local chapters continue to complain they are not receiving financial support from the main organization.
We should also note that BLM reportedly raised $5,000 to help with the funeral costs for Simpson, but Lisa Simpson claims she has not seen a penny of that money.
Recently, Rice and Simpson released a joint statement against BLM, saying, “We never hired them to be the representatives in the fight for justice for our dead loved ones murdered by the police.
“The ‘activists’ have events in our cities and have not given us anything substantial for using our loved ones’ images and names on their flyers.
“We don’t want or need y’all parading in the streets accumulating donations, platforms, movie deals, etc., off the death of our loved ones, while the families and communities are left clueless and broken.”
Breonna Taylor’s mother has also raised questions about the legitimacy of BLM.
Tamika Palmer called them an outright fraud, stating, “I have never personally dealt with BLM Louisville and personally have found them to be fraud, Attica Scott another fraud.”
She continued, “I could walk in a room full of people who claim to be here for Breonna’s family who don’t even know who I am.
“I’ve watched y’all raise money on behalf of Breonna’s family who has never done a damn thing for us nor have we needed it or asked so talk about fraud. It’s amazing how many people have lost focus.”
What more needs to be said? It is time the government launches a full investigation into this organization and makes them answer for all these claims being made against them.
