It’s Time For Accountability
First Statement of the #BLM10
It was recently declared that Patrisse Cullors was appointed the Executive Director to the Black Lives Matter Global Network (BLMGN) Foundation. Since then, two new Black Lives Matter formations have been announced to the public: a Black Lives Matter Political Action Committee, and BLM Grassroots. BLM Grassroots was allegedly created to support the organizational needs of chapters, separate from the financial functions of BLMGN. We, the undersigned chapters, believe that all of these events occurred without democracy, and assert that it was without the knowledge of the majority of Black Lives Matters chapters across the country and world.

How Black Lives Matter L.A. Undermined and Co-Opted the Movement for Ezell Ford
by Hands Up Dont Shoot
In order to understand how Black Lives Matter co-opted Ferguson, changed the course of the movement and how we got to where we are (lack of results, transparency & accountability), you have to understand how they move… They tried unsuccessfully to hijack the movement behind Trayvon Martin. When Ferguson became world news they set their eyes on the movement here while completely ignoring the movement that was growing in their own backyard. Ezell Ford wasn’t world news. His life didn’t matter until it could be exploited…
