Black Lives Matter activist: ‘I learned the terrible truth’

Rashad Turner, a former Black Lives Matter (BLM) activist who is now executive director of the Minnesota Parents Association, revealed that he has “learned the terrible truth” about BLM, including the grouping. This radical had little interest in rebuilding black families and even little interest in improving education for black children.

TakeCharge, a Minnesota-based, black-led movement that rejects the Theory of Racism (CRT) and “culture of awakening,” posted a video on Wednesday (May 27). ). In the video, Mr. Rashad Turner recounts his journey to becoming a founder of BLM in St. his Paul. However, after only a year of working within the organization, he realized that this radical group had very little interest in the lives of black people, black children and black families.

Mr. Turner was born in 1985 in Minneapolis. In the video, he said his father was shot and killed when he was 2 years old.

He detailed his growing up process: “My mother was unable to take care of me, so I was raised by my grandparents. They told me that if you want to change your life for the better, education is the answer. Therefore, I worked hard in school. I got into Hamline University, and got a college degree – it was also the first college degree in my family. After this, I went on to earn a master’s degree in education from the University of St. Mary’s Minnesota. It can be said that my case is living proof that starting in life is not the deciding factor, but the quality of education is the key to success.”

Mr. Turner hoped the children in the community would achieve the same success as him and thought BLM would be supportive, but soon discovered the ‘bad truth’:In 2015, I was the founder of Black Lives Matter in St. Paul. I believe this organization represents exactly what its name implies, black lives matter. However, after a year inside the organization, I learned that they had little interest in rebuilding the lives of black families, and they were barely even interested in improving the quality of education. education for students in Minneapolis. That was evident when they publicly denounced charter schools, along with teachers’ unions. I’m a Black Lives Matter insider, and I learned the terrible truth, that the ban on charter schools doesn’t support the rebuilding of black family lives, but creates a barrier. for a better education for black children.”

As Breitbart News reported in June 2020, many individuals, corporations, and teachers’ unions have adopted the rhetoric of BLM, an organization that is currently receiving huge donations from people deemed ” wake up,” are the same people who have failed to oversee the larger political agenda of the BLM.

In the “What We Believe” section of their website (which has since been removed), the BLM Global Network Foundation stated goals, including “fight for freedom, liberation and justice” through the break “Western two-generation family structure”.

The site also highlights: “We circumvent the requirement for the two-generation family structure dictated by the West, by supporting each other as families of more than two generations and ‘neighborhoods’ who care for each other, especially our children, so that mothers, parents and children are comfortable.” In addition, the word “father” was intentionally excluded, replaced by the word “parent” regardless of gender.

The statement also denigrates the male influence over the family as ‘oppressive’: “We build an environment that is affirming the role of black women, without discrimination, without bias, and without being male-centered.” They also call single mothers “two shifts” – working while raising children according to “patriarchal practices”.

In the video, Mr. Turner announced that he had resigned from BLM after just a year and a half with him. He asserted: “I am not giving up on improving the lives of black people and giving them access to a great education. I am currently the President and CEO of the Minnesota Parents Association. We are dedicated to helping parents transfer their children to schools that can lead to success.”

“It’s hard work and we have to fight forces that don’t want us to succeed,” Mr. Turner added. “But success is possible. Just look at me, as well as the hundreds of other children and families we have helped to pursue a great education, break chains of poverty and achieve success in life.”
