Black Lives Matter founder calls out organization over its ‘ugly’ positions on family and education

The founder of Black Lives Matter (BLM) in St. Paul, Minnesota, recently released a video in which he called out the group’s “ugly truth,” by which he meant their positions on family and education.

“In 2015, I was the founder of Black Lives Matter in St. Paul,” said Rashad Turner, who now leads the pro-school choice group Minnesota Parent Union. “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,” added Turner, who now leads the pro-school-choice group Minnesota Parent Union.

He noted that the group’s website previously said that it wanted to “disrupt the nuclear family structure.” He said 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,” he said. He added: “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.”
