BLM Co-Founder Stepping Down, Received Multi-Year TV Development Deal With Warner Brothers

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors announced Thursday she is stepping down as executive director of her movement’s foundation. Guess Black Lives don’t matter enough for her to keep fighting for them. That, or she has bought herself all the mansions she needs.

USA Today writes Cullors “decried what she called a smear campaign from a far-right group, but said neither that nor recent criticism from other Black organizers influenced her departure.” Rather, Cullors states she is leaving to focus on other projects.

“I’ve created the infrastructure and the support, and the necessary bones and foundation, so that I can leave” Cullors told The Associated Press. “It feels like the time is right” she added. Perhaps the time is right because she has an upcoming release of her second book as well as a multi-year TV development deal with Warner Brothers.

Though she claims to leave due to successful “infrastructure” and “support” the resignation also comes on the heels of controversy over the foundation’s finances and over Cullors’ personal wealth.

The Associated Press revealed in February that the Black Lives Matter foundation took in just over $90 million last year after the murder of George Floyd in May. The foundation said it ended 2020 with a balance of over $60 million, after spending nearly a quarter of its assets on operating expenses, grants to Black-led organizations and other charitable giving.

Many people have lamented that the BLM movement received so much money when the families of Black victims have not. “That is the most tragic aspect” said Reverend T. Sheri Dickerson, president of an Oklahoma City BLM chapter and a representative of the #BLM10, a national group of organizers that has publicly criticized the foundation over funding and transparency.

“I know some of (the families) are feeling exploited, their pain exploited, and that’s not something that I ever want to be affiliated with” said Dickerson.

    Biggest scam in history for white guilt!!!
    Pay money to a group founded by self proclaimed radical Marxists terrorists, who have now been converted to be MEGA capitalist. Ford foundation initially gave them a Hundred million and the other many many millions came from the fools to cover white guilt with some cash.

    She took the money and now she runs. Shame on her. The Black Community should go to her mansion and ring the door bell.

      WHICH mansion?? She’s got 4, from what I hear! Nothing but another obnoxious race hustler. With the money #BLM collected–or extorted–they could have done some real good. But their agenda was never about making black lives better, or anybody else’s–just THEIR lives.

      Hmmmm, how long til she buys Mansion Number 5?

    Warner Bros now on my list of ‘Do Not Patronize this Business’.
    BLM was funded by Soros as part of his continuing efforts to destroy America. Last year, BLM received $93 mill in donations. Not one penny went to families or even to black businesses destroyed by rioters. Cullors is a scam artist, a race-baiter, and a crook.
    26 MILLION ‘mostly peaceful’ BLM marchers, protesters, looters, rioters, assaulted, bullies, arsonists, and murderers is a massive opposing force. Be prepared.

    You can only poison so many minds thru the news but imagine how many can be perverted with a hit movie misrepresenting history or using fictional settings that show your vision works in La, La land! The damage a great movie director can do will amaze and astound you!
    These guys never worry about historical accuracy. An old movie “red river valley” once depicted cattle barons hiring gunmen to drive out Russian immigrants from an area and while in the movie in the rescue scene the immigrants had one man escape to bring in the cavalry to save them from annihilation historically the opposite is true!
    You see many of them had mustered out of the Russian Army when wars in their country were over, they knew how to fight! When they discovered the attack was on they armed themselves and trapped the hired guns with the cattle barons at a ranch and were picking them off until one of their people brought in the cavalry to escort them out! They never came back and everyone kept their land.
    Hollywood can work this magic against our Nation too!

Shaq Denounces ‘Celebrity-Ness’ Says They are ‘Out of Their Freaking Mind’

Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one

In an interview with the New York Post, basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one. “I denounce my celebrity-ness today. I’m done with it” O’Neal told the Post while discussing his new Kellogg’s deal.

“Celebrities are crazy. I don’t want to be in that category. They are. They’re going freaking insane. Don’t call me that anymore” said O’Neal. “These people are out of their freaking mind with how they treat people, what they do, what they say. That’s never been me. I never want to be looked at like that.”

O’Neal’s Kellogg’s deal consists of his own new Frosted Flakes cereal, Crispy Cinnamon Basketballs, and partnership with Mission Tiger, which will help over 60,000 middle-schoolers.

“The Mission Tiger program pledged to purchase new sports equipment, including uniforms, for students across the U.S. The Schools involved in the mission will take place in the six cities where O’Neal played over 19 seasons – Boston, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando and Phoenix” reports The Post.

O’Neal wants to be remembered for his kindness, says the 49-year-old who grew up poor in New Jersey and says he tries to do random acts of kindness at least twice per week.

Everyone gets stereotyped but celebrities get stereotyped because most of them are “our of their damn mind.” He said. “I’m a regular person that listened, that followed their dreams, made it. But just because I made it don’t mean I’m bigger than you. Just because I made it don’t mean I’m smarter than you. Just cause I have more money than you don’t mean that I’m better than you.”

 I’ve never been that way and I never will be that way. So I don’t want to be in that category of people. When they talk about Shaq, what do you say? ‘He’s a nice guy.’ Because what else can you be? You’re either nice or you’re the A-word, and I definitely won’t be looked at as the A-word,” he said.

“I want people to say, ‘Bro, he’s nice. He didn’t have an entourage. His people didn’t take my phone because I took a picture and threw it.’”

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
