A co-founder of Black Lives Matter announced Thursday that she is stepping down as executive director of the movement’s foundation. She 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.

Patrisse Cullors, who has been at the helm of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation for nearly six years, said she is leaving to focus on other projects, including the upcoming release of her second book and a multiyear TV development deal with Warner Bros Her last day with the foundation is Friday

With as often as you talk out of the wrong orifice, I have to wonder how many pairs of underwear you go through each day.

Well, with all that is going on in the world today, nice to see you have your priorities lined up appropriately on what to worry about today.

For all we know, he IS XXJefferson51.

Yes, for all you know.

Fortunately, we don't have to rely on what you know or don't know.

It appears some people's purpose here is only to whine, complain, and bitch, bitch, bitch . . . . . .

How do you feel about her?

Do you think she used the funds for herself to buy million dollar homes?

Well you should, she is dishonest and using the money from a organization that you all support.

I doubt anyone on the "right" trusted her with their money so why would they give a shit?

She cashed in on the movement; and now she is cashing out. Seems her morals (if she ever had any) have a price; and it has been met.

Whatever will the "mostly peaceful" protesters do without her?/S

They should have organized protests at her home(s).

Maybe it would have been smarter for BLM to mind its own business rather that also back a foreign terrorist organization.  I imagine it lost a lot of valuable support by doing so.
