“Black Lives Matter is a Fraud”
Breonna Taylor’s Mother, Tamika Palmer, says that Black Lives Matter, Louisville Chapter is a fraud. The grieving mother remarked that BLM did a lot of work in Breonna’s name but she didn’t see any help actually happening. The mother claims that BLM was fundraising and profitting on victims’ family’s pain. “I’ve never personally dealt with BLM. 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.”
Breonna Taylor Shot Five Times Duing No-Knock Warrant
Breonna Taylor was murdered in her own home after a no-knock warrant was executed by Louisville officers. Taylor was only 26. Breonna Taylor was shot at least five times and killed on March 13th, during a mistaken drugs raid. Although, no drugs were found.
Breonna’s family didn’t get a trial. Nor, did they get accountability from the officers. The family did receive a $12 Million settlement. Aside from the cash, the settlement includes a series of police reforms including a requirement that all search warrants be approved by a senior officer. Breonna’s family worked with Until Freedom, (not BLM) a social justice organization. The Organization responded (in regards to the settlement): “No amount of money will bring back Breonna Taylor.”
“True justice is not served with cash settlements,” Unitil Freedom added. “We need those involved in her murder to be arrested and charged. We need accountability. We need justice.” Unfortunately, for Breonna’s family, they did not get that justice. The Officers involved did not get brought up on charges.
Chauvin’s Verdict; Not Done Fighting For Those Who Have Not Received Justice.
The Verdict is in. Chauvin’s trial verdict was rendered leaving many were feeling a sense of relief. A collective breath was released. Chauvin was on trial for killing George Floyd by kneeling on his neck for nine minutes.
Breonna’s Mother, Tamika Johnson, remarked on Facebook. “Today justice has been served but we are not (done) fighting for justice for all the victims and families (who) haven’t received theirs,” Palmer wrote regarding the guilty verdict rendered in the Chauvin’s trial. The mother still stands vigiliant for the many families who didn’t get that closure in their trials or proceedings.
BLM Using Fundraising Funds For Own Gains?
Then, Palmer continued to write, regarding the Black Lives Matter organization, through her facebook posts, “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,”
BLM founder, Patrisse Cullor, was accused of misappropriation of funds when she purchased four properties. One of the properties Cullor bought was a $1.4 million home in upscale LA . The claim is she used funds that were raised to help Black Lives causes and create political change to purchase her many properties.
Founder, Patrisse Cullor, received backlash from many families who claimed that the founder used their suffering to leverage herself a better lifestyle, with blantant disregard to the families she exploited. So, is the claim true or is this another attempt at propaganda so disparage BLM?
