Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter, appealed for the end of Israel at a panel held at Harvard Law School in 2015.
“Palestine is our generation of South Africa. If we don’t act boldly and bravely to end an imperialist project called Israel, we will lose our destiny,” Colors said.
Human rights program under Harvard law Hosted In April 2015, Mr. Colors and several other activists participated in a panel entitled “Globalization of Ferguson: Racist Police and International Resistance.” In a panel discussion, Colors shared his experience of visiting the West Bank and Gaza in 2015 as a member of a delegation with other far-left activists. She claims to have witnessed “violence” and “terrorism” against Palestinians caused by Israelis and “Zionists.”
She told the audience that one way Americans could fight back was to join a boycott, diving strike, and sanctions (BDS) movement to pressure Israel to change its policy towards Palestinians.
Recent BLM co-founder Announced She resigned after five years as Executive Director of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation. She argues that the reason for her resignation is to spend more time on other projects, such as the release of a second book and a television contract with Warner Bros. Pictures.
Her sudden retirement arose in doubts surrounding her finances. The New York Post reported in April that Mr. Colors had bought four homes for $ 3.2 million, among other activists. A question arose. Hawk Newsam, head of Black Lives Matter Greater Greater New York City, called for an “independent investigation” into the Foundation’s finances. The two organizations are not involved.
Colors denies receiving salary from the Foundation, but critics argue that she may be using donations from the Foundation to enrich herself. She denies these claims and states that income is another source of income from selling books and trading with YouTube.
In the past, Colors called himself a “trained Marxist.”
