Black Lives Matter Leader Quits, Exposes 'Ugly Truth' about BLM
'I learned they had little concern for rebuilding black families'
The leader of a Black Lives Matter chapter has dramatically quit his role in the far-left organization and gone on record to expose the "ugly truth" about BLM.
Rashard Turner, who founded the BLM chapter of St. Paul, Minnesota, in 2015, has published a video revealing the true agenda of the group and why he chose to leave.
In his video, he explains that he had hoped the organization would invest in black communities and promote the dignity of black lives.
"I am living proof that no matter your start life, quality education is a pathway to success," Turner explained in the video.
"I want the same success for our children in our communities.
"That's why in 2015, I was a founder of Black Lives Matter in St. Paul."
"I believed the organization stood for exactly what the name implies, black lives do matter," Turner says.
Unfortunately, Turner said he quickly learned Black Lives Matter the organization "had little concern" for promoting the welfare of black lives.
"After a year on the inside, I learned they had little concern for rebuilding black families, and they cared even less about improving the quality of education for students in Minneapolis," Turner explained.
"That was made clear when they publicly denounced charter schools alongside the teachers union."
"I was an insider in Black Lives Matter," he added.
"And I learned the ugly truth.
"The moratorium on charter schools does not support rebuilding the black family.
"But it does create barriers to a better education for black children.
"I resigned from Black Lives Matter after a year and a half.
"But I didn't quit working to improve black lives and access to a great education."
Black mothers of people who have been killed by police — and supposedly "helped" by BLM in the aftermath — are also speaking out against BLM.
Samaria Rice — the mother of Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old boy fatally shot by Cleveland police in 2014 — accused BLM of exploiting black deaths, the New York Post reported.
"They are benefiting off the blood of our loved ones, and they won't even talk to us," Rice said.
"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," Palmer said.
Black Lives Matter co-founder, and self-proclaimed "trained Marxist," Patrisse Cullors resigned on Thursday amid the spiraling controversy surrounding her vast personal wealth and plummeting public support for her foundation.
Last month, Cullors faced backlash after news she purchased a lavish new home in an exclusive California neighborhood that only has a population of 1.4% black residents.
The BLM founder splashed out $1.4 million to buy the property in a posh area that is 88 percent white.
It later emerged that the purchase was just the latest in Cullors' multi-million dollar property buying spree.
However, little evidence has been provided that any of the donations received by BLM have been invested in black communities.
