Former Black Lives Matter Founder Reveals the ‘Ugly Truth’

Rashad Turner was born in 1985 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. At the age of two, his father was shot and killed, leaving his mother alone with no means to take care of him. His grandparents took on the role of raising him. His grandparents told him, “That if he wanted to change his life for the better, education was the answer.” He drove himself to succeed in school and worked hard for his education. He graduated from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota with his master’s in education. He is the first in his family to graduate from college with a degree.

Turner believes that “no matter your start in life, quality education is the pathway to success.”

He set out to bring this success to the communities to help better education. In 2015, he was the founder of the Black Lives Matter in St. Paul, Minnesota. He believed that the organization stood for what the name implies, “Black Lives Matter.” Within that first year of the organization, he learned – ‘ugly truth.’ The organization had little to no concern about strengthening black families, nor did they care about improving their education for the students in the community.

Turner learned this when the organization publicly denounced charter schools alongside the teacher’s union.

As an insider, he learned that the moratorium of the charter schools did not support rebuilding black families but instead created a barrier to better the education for black children in the community.

After a year, he left Black Lives Matter and continued to work hard to better education and black families in the community.

He now serves as the president and executive director of Minnesota Parent Union, which strives to help parents place their children into successful schools from failing schools. This program has placed hundreds of children in better education to help them succeed and break the generational curses of poverty.

Yes, a great man. The only way to better your life is education. Not more children to leave behind, not destroying property and definitely not drugs of crime.

I applaud him for realizing BLM does NOT care about Black Lives and got out early and is doing something better with his life .
People can and do change.
I’m willing to give him the benefit of doubt.

Whilst we all contemplate the excellent article here; the head of ‘BLM’ is enjoying a life of palatial luxury. One can envision them sitting by the poolside; waiting for their private jet to arrive. They have a busy day ahead of them, selecting yet another mansion; (after all, they only have four already.) Selecting the ‘mansion maintenance staff’ is also a strain. Now, what to order from the private gourmet chef for lunch?

Quality education and an even playing field was Dr. Martin King’s vision for all America. Black leaders hijacked the movement to enrich themselves and keep black communities in poverty. Just look at Democratic representatives in Washington D.C. They all make money off the poverty industry

Turner, you are an inspiration and a breath of fresh air. We can only pray that other people who get involved with these tyrannical organizations are as bright as you are and eventually see the chaos and destruction that they are causing

love it and so true… a good education gives you the tools for success. That’s why I am so concerned with what is happening in our schools today. Good history, grammar, reading and writing are vital to success and a future for this country.
