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!

Real estate websites Redfin, Realtor.com will no longer display crime data ‘due to racial bias concerns’

The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens

The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens. Two popular homebuying websites, Zillow and Redfin, are the latest companies to kowtow to a weak and sensitive culture.

Redfin and Realtor.com both “put forth announcements on the same day back in December that their sites will no longer display or gather any crime data for the neighborhoods covered within them due to racial bias concerns” reports Steadfastandloyal.com.

In a blog post, CEO of Realtor.com David Doctorow wrote the company is attempting to “break down those hurdles” of discrimination in homeownership. “For example, earlier this month, we removed the crime map layer from all search results on Realtor.com to rethink the safety information we share on Realtor.com and how we can best integrate it as part of a consumer’s home search experience,” stated Doctorow.

“In the weeks and months ahead, we plan to examine closely what neighborhood safety means for buyers and renters who use our site so we can reimagine how we integrate safety data on Realtor.com. Our goal is to ensure we are providing consumers with the most valuable, fair and accurate neighborhood data so they can make informed decisions about where they want to rent or purchase their next home,” added Doctorow.

In a blog post on the same day, the chief growth officer for Redfin, Christian Taubman, wrote Redfin was entirely aware that people want to know “whether they’ll feel safe in a given home or neighborhood,” but “the data available don’t allow us to speak accurately to that question, and given the long history of redlining and racist housing covenants in the United States there’s too great a risk of this inaccuracy reinforcing racial bias.”

“We believe that Redfin–and all real estate sites–should not show neighborhood crime data,” Taubman stated.

Taubman went on to inaccuracies of crime reporting as an excuse for not adding the information to its website. “In the 2019 survey, people reporting crimes were more likely to describe their offender as young, male, and Black than would be expected given the representation of those groups in the population,” he said.

Taubman concluded, “in this case we’re confident that the crime data that are available today ought not to be on Redfin or any other real estate site.”

Chicago 911 Dispatcher says ‘All Hell Has Broken Loose’ Crime is ‘Nonstop’

The liberal run city of Chicago is in a downward spiral suffocated by crime. Few understand what is happening better than 911 dispatchers who have the impossible task of listening to people suffer through crimes, yet unable to help them due to liberal policies creating a violent crime epidemic and police shortage.

Keith Thornton posted a video to Facebook last week saying Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is “a disgrace.” Thornton took it upon himself to warn citizens about which Chicago police district is unavailable due to the staffing shortages.

In an interview with Fox & Friends Thornton said that “all hell has broken loose” in Chicago while local officials have failed to act. “It’s been shenanigans, and it’s just nonstop, day after day. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning time, evening time, whatever –at all hours of the day, there is a massive amount of crime taking place within the city of Chicago.”

“When I’m getting text messages from officers telling me that they’re scared and afraid for their safety because they’re working by themselves, and then the beat next to them would normally back them up, they’re not even there because the cars are down. That’s a problem. It’s a safety concern” Thornton said in an interview with Chicago’s WLS-TV.

Chicago Police Department data shows homicides, shootings, thefts and criminal sexual assaults are all up drastically compared to last year. Lightfoot has not only been a proponent of defunding the police, she also behaved viciously towards law enforcement.

After Chicago Police Officer Ella French was killed during a routine traffic stop, Lightfoot blamed “guns and the violence they bring” for her death. When Lightfoot visited French’s partner who was wounded and fighting for his life at the time at the hospital, dozens of officers at the hospital turned their back on the mayor.
