More Trouble For BLM: Families Of Michael Brown & Breonna Taylor Are Asking Them A Question They Don’t Want To Answer
The organization Black Live Matter are being asked questions they don’t want to answer.
Shortly after the death of Michael Brown the Black Lives Matter movement started fundraised off his death using the phrase “hands up don’t shoot.” Similar to Brown after the death of Breonna Taylor the organization moved in and raised funds.
Now after it was learned that co-founder of Black Lives Matter Patrisse Khan-Cullors has gone on a four year multi-million real-estate spree families are asking where did all the money go?
Last week, the mother of Breonna Taylor, a black woman killed by police during a raid in March 2020, blasted the movement in Louisville, Kentucky, saying they are are a scam.
“I have never personally dealt with BLM Louisville, and personally have found them to be fraud,” Tamika Palmer wrote on Facebook.
“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,” Palmer said. “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 … I’m gonna say this before I go. I’m so sick of some of y’all.”
Last month, the father of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old shot and killed by police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, had a question for Black Lives Matter a simple question: “Where is all that money going?”
A review of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation’s financial documents found the group raised nearly $100 million in 2020, of which less than $40 million was spent in the last year.
Khan-Cullors said that the organization is not a “charity,” and that if people in the community have financial needs they should pressure the government for reparations for slavery.
