Some mothers of Black sons and daughters killed by police officers are criticizing the BLM organization amid controversy over co-founder Patrisse Cullors’ lavish lifestyle.
- “They are benefiting off the blood of our loved ones, and they won’t even talk to us,” Rice said.
- Cullors announced her departure after a five-year reign earlier this week following reports she had purchased four homes for $3.2 million.
- Hawk Newsome, the head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City — a separate group — called for an “independent investigation” into the national organization’s finances.
