Civil rights attorney Leo Terrell slammed Black Lives Matter Thursday as being solely a “fundraising mechanism” following silence from the organization’s corporate supporters on the murder rate of Black Americans. On “America’s Newsroom,” Terrell called for a frank conversation about the intentions of BLM, saying the group is designed to raise money by playing the race card rather than resolve real issues.
COMPANIES THAT LOUDLY SUPPORTED BLM FALL SILENT WHEN CONFRONTED WITH SKYROCKETING BLACK MURDERS
LEO TERRELL: Black population is only 13% of the country, and there were more Blacks killed than Whites. That’s crazy. That is unbelievable. And why? Because there’s a total disregard for any type of resolution other than White cop, Black suspect. Black Lives Matter has no other agenda. It’s not designed to work and resolve the problem. It’s designed to raise money playing the race card.
