The reasons for her resignation are unknown, and may never be known. The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, the main organization known as Black Lives Matter, has all the transparency of the Kremlin during the Brezhnev years.
In her resignation video, Cullors said she was quitting as the group’s executive director to spend more time with her family (her 5-year-old son) – a statement that shows how far the radical group has come in becoming part of the political furniture.
Had this been said by a balding White politician from Owatonna, the press would be busy looking for embezzlement or at least a mistress. As it was, CNN published an article that read like a press release from BLM GNF HQ.
Infatti, Cullors resigned amid allegations of financial improprieties, criticism of her purchase of million-dollar homes, and a radical leftward turn that saw her asking two months ago for not just the elimination of the police force, but also of jails, prisons and the court system. All of that has led to tanking public support for BLM.
Cullors spent a tumultuous 10 months as executive director of BLM GNF, a July 2020 appointment that, with typical opacity, was announced in September.
The financial allegations are what one would expect. This April, Il New York Post segnalato quello in 2019, a lobbying group Cullors co-founded “doled out $ 346,558 – more than a quarter of its budget – to companies controlled by Khan-Cullors and her wife, as well as to writer Asha Bandele and Damon Turner, the father of her young son.” The Post cited “the PAC’s campaign finance statements obtained by The Post.”

Activists have also complained to NBC that the money BLM has raised in its more than seven years of existence, but especially since BLM organized nationwide protests and riots after the killing of George Floyd last year, should have gone to Black families.
“That is the most tragic aspect,” il Rev. T. Sheri Dickerson, the head of an Oklahoma City BLM chapter, ha detto alla NBC. “I know some of (the families) are feeling exploited, their pain exploited.”
Anziché, the Post reported that Cullors had gone on a house-buying spree that saw her snap up four high-end houses worth $ 3.2 million in total. In typical fashion, the paper’s headline read “Black Lives Mansions.”
That opulent lifestyle has in no way diminished the communist instincts of the woman who once described herself as a “trained Marxist” (which is true: she was recruited and trained by Eric Mann, a former member of the Weather Underground terrorist group who still seeks world revolution).
