Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has apparently been forced out of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF) in the wake of controversy over her finances.
The April 10 New York Post story about Cullors owning four homes was followed by additional reports of cozy financial relationships with “nonprofit” groups she founded.
Although there are a number of groups that have Black Lives Matter in their names, BLMGNF has been the main recipient of corporate funds, totaling some $90 million. This has prompted tensions within the movement with some questioning where all the money is going.
About the articles, Cullors said, “Those were right-wing attacks that tried to discredit my character, and I don’t operate off of what the right thinks about me.”
