The founder of the St. Paul, Minn., chapter of Black Lives Matter recently called out the “ugly truth” of the movement’s positions on family and education.

In a video posted to Youtube last week, Rashad Turner said that as the founder of Black Lives Matter in St. Paul in 2015 he “believed the organization stood for exactly what the name implies — black lives do matter.”

“However, after a year on the inside, I learned they had little concern for rebuilding Black families,” added Turner, who now leads the pro-school choice group Minnesota Parent Union.

He noted that the group’s website previously said that it wanted to “disrupt the nuclear family structure.” He said they “cared even less” about “improving the quality of education for students in Minneapolis.”

“That was made clear when they publicly denounced charter schools alongside the teachers’ union,” he said.

He added: “I was an insider in Black Lives Matter and I learned the ugly truth – the moratorium on charter schools does not support rebuilding the black family. But it does create barriers to a better education for black children.”

In September, media outlets first reported that the official Black Lives Matter website no longer included language encouraging the “disruption” of the “Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.”
