The founder of Black Lives Matter in Saint Paul, Minnesota resigned from the organization after discovering an “ugly truth.”
Rashad Turner, the founder of BLM in Saint Paul, resigned after a little over one year, as he realized that the leftist organization had “little concern for rebuilding black families.” He continued, “My mother wasn’t able to take care of me, so I was raised by my grandparents. They told me that if I was going to change my life for the better, education was the answer. So, I worked hard in school. I got into Hamline University, and earned a college degree, the first in my family. Then I went on to earn a master’s in education from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota. I am living proof that no matter your start in life, quality education is a pathway to success,” said Turner.
“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,” explained Turner. “However, after a year on the inside, I learned they have little concern for rebuilding black families, and they cared even less about improving the quality of education for students in Minneapolis.”
“That was made clear when they publicly denounced charter schools, alongside the teachers’ union. I was an insider in Black Lives Matter, 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,” revealed Turner in a video titled The Truth Revealed about BLM.
“But I didn’t quit working to improve black lives, and access to a great education,” Turner continued. “Today, I serve as the president and executive director of Minnesota Parent Union. We’re dedicated to helping parents move their children from failing schools to successful schools.”
Lesbian “trained Marxist” Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors had also resigned from her position as executive director of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation following a scandal in which she was exposed over a hypocritical mansion-buying spree, as National File reported.
Cullors added, “I think I will probably be less visible, because I won’t be at the helm of one of the largest, most controversial organizations right now in the history of our movement.” Though Cullors has denied that the reason for her departure is not any way related to her mansion-buying scandal, several experts believe it was a major factor.
The only defense Cullors has mounted for her mansion collection is that her luxury homes are “in direct support of black people,” without elaborating further.
