Mothers of Tamir Rice, Breonna Taylor Criticize Black Lives Matter: ‘Benefitting Off the Blood of Our Loved Ones’

By Jack Phillips, Epoch Times

The mothers of several people whose names have been invoked by Black Lives Matter activists panned the group’s co-founder, Patrisse Cullors, for benefitting “off the blood” of their family members.

Cullors last week announced last week that she would be departing the organization, coming after reports disclosed her finances and real estate holdings.

“They are benefiting off the blood of our loved ones, and they won’t even talk to us,” Samaria Rice, the mother of a 12-year-old boy, Tamir Rice, who was shot by police in Cleveland, told the New York Post.

Rice added that she contacted Black Lives Matter to help in re-opening a federal investigation into her son’s death in 2014, exchanging several emails with Cullors years ago before nothing came of it.

“I don’t believe she is going anywhere,” Rice said of the BLM co-founder. “It’s all a facade,” she continued. “She’s only saying that to get the heat off her right now.”
