Former BLM Leader Breaks Narrative Shows True Colors - For Once
BLM claims that they are trying to better things for black people... But if you look at the "defund the police" movement, it didn't help anyone but criminals. It turns out BLM fails on even more levels than that. Former St. Paul, Minnesota BLM Founder Rashard Turner, claims that he left BLM after realizing that Black Lives Matter didn't really help black people.
Turner said as much in a video published by "TakeCharge," a group that actually helps black people.
"I was born in Minneapolis in 1985. We called the north side home at that time, 18th and Queen. When I was two years old, my father was shot and killed. 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 Hamlin University and earned a college degree, 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 life, quality education is a pathway to success. 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.
However, 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. 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. 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."

So this is enlightening, it proves BLM is pretty much a useless divisive group, which makes sense since the MSM loves to cover for them. It's sad as many black people could benefit from charter schools, especially in poor districts and BLM is discouraging their educational advancement.
