Black Lives Matter issued a statement Tuesday asserting that any accusations of wrongdoing against co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors misusing funds are yet another example of white supremacy.
As details continue to emerge of the property spending splurge that the self proclaimed marxist activist has been on, as well as details of yet more grifting activities, and even as other leaders call for investigations, the organisation claimed that the whole thing is a “false and dangerous story” being pushed by “right wing forces” and “white supremacists”.
In other words, they injected race into the issue… again.
“Patrisse’s work for Black people over the years has made her and others who align with the fight for Black liberation targets of racist violence,” the statement claims, adding “The narratives being spread about Patrisse have been generated by right-wing forces intent on reducing the support and influence of a movement that is larger than any one organization.”
“This right-wing offensive not only puts Patrisse, her child and her loved ones in harm’s way, it also continues a tradition of terror by white supremacists against Black activists,” it continues.
