[Ed. – But don’t worry, she’s just moving on to a lucrative book deal and other projects. It’s also unlikely her resignation means she won’t continue to profit from BLM organizations.]
On Thursday afternoon, Patrisse Cullors, the co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement, resigned from her position of Executive Director of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF) after six years. Cullors has faced intense scrutiny over the past several months for her fiscal management of the organization, as well as her prominent property buying sprees.
The Daily Mail reports:
[Cullors] insists her resignation has been in the works for more than a year and has nothing to do with the personal attacks she has faced.
‘Those were right-wing attacks that tried to discredit my character, and I don’t operate off of what the right thinks about me,’ Cullors told the Associated Press. …
[R]ecent controversies may have had … to do with the organizational reshuffling. Cullors, who famously referred to herself as a trained Marxist, has come under fire in 2021 over reports of her fiscal mismanagement of BLMGNF, including using her paid position as executive director to hire a consulting firm she happens to own. Of course, any criticism of Cullors is met with charges of racism and white supremacy.
