Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder, Patrisse Cullors is living high on the hog in million-dollar homes according to Breonna Taylor’s mom.
Tamika Palmer, Breonna Taylor’s mother is calling out BLM after she read about BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors’ purchase of four homes for 3.2 million dollars.
Palmer’s daughter Breonna Taylor was killed last year during a knock-and-announce drug raid, in which her boyfriend shot at police and they returned fire. LMPD Sgt. Jon Mattingly was shot during the exchange and has now recovered.
She said the group fundraised off from her daughter’s death yet failed to use even a nickel of it to aid the family in their time of need.
She is calling them frauds and that she is sick of hearing about them. She is no fan of the BLM movement.
Breonna Taylor died during a police knock and announces the raid. Taylor’s boyfriend admits he shot first and an officer was wounded and Taylor was hit and died from the exchange. There were rumors started that Taylor was killed as she laid in bed asleep.
BLM used the tragedy to raise money but they kept it all and did not share it with Taylor’s family. She is angry that while she worries about making the rent, a member of BLM can buy four houses.
Last September Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced that there will be no charges filed against two of the Louisville police officers involved in the raid but a third policeman was charged with wanton endangerment which carries a penalty of one to five years.
“I have never personally dealt with BLM Louisville and personally have found them to be fraud, Attica Scott another fraud,” Breonna’s mom Tamika Palmer said in a Facebook post.
“I could walk in a room full of people who claim to be here for Breonna’s family who doesn’t even know who I am, 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.”
She concluded with: “I’m a say this before I go I’m so sick of some of y’all and I was the last anybody who needs it I’m with this shit enough is enough!!”
