Black Lives Matter has been a matter of controversy almost constantly for the last several years.
One side says that the organization was started to stop racism against African-Americans and that the organization is still working to do exactly that.
People on the other side, though, say that BLM is there for very different and horrible reasons. One of the people on this side is had harsh words for BLM. Jack Phillips writes,
“They are benefiting off the blood of our loved ones, and they won’t even talk to us,” Samaria Rice, the mother of a 12-year-old boy, Tamir Rice, who was shot by police in Cleveland, told the New York Post.
Rice added that she contacted Black Lives Matter to help in re-opening a federal investigation into her son’s death in 2014, exchanging several emails with Cullors years ago before nothing came of it.
“I don’t believe she is going anywhere,” Rice said of the BLM co-founder. “It’s all a facade,” she continued. “She’s only saying that to get the heat off her right now.”
Lisa Simpson, whose son was also killed in a Los Angeles Police Department officer-involved incident in 2016, also criticized the organization’s co-founder.
“Now she doesn’t have to show her accountability,” Simpson, 52, told the newspaper in reference to Cullors’ move to leave the organization. “She can just take the money and run.”
The most infuriating thing about the whole BLM situation is that these two mothers who are, understandably, deeply hurting because their children were killed, are being used by BLM as examples but, when given the opportunity, nothing is being done to follow up and resolve the situations to anyone’s satisfaction.
Except, of course, the satisfaction of the pocket books of BLM leaders who are profiting hugely from their race hustling.
If Biden and Harris were serious about making race relations better in America, one of the first things that they would do is to sick their Attorney General after race hustlers like Al Sharpton and the BLM leaders. There is no excuse or allowing those con artists to continue to fleece people for personal gain.
