In a recent Twitter attack, Candace Owens slammed the Black Lives Matter movement as a "RACIST organization," claiming they use "dead black people to fund and empower white Democrats.” Her accusations follow Breonna Taylor's mother, Tamika Palmer's since-deleted Facebook post that accused the organization of "fraud."

Palmer recently accused the BLM chapter of Louisville of entirely shifting their focus from her daughter's cause. Her scathing criticism in the caption of the Facebook post was directed at Kentucky’s Rep Attica Scott for continuing to push for her ‘no-knock’ warrants within the state. “I have never personally dealt with BLM Louisville and personally have found them to be fraud, Attica Scott another fraud,” Palmer had allegedly written in a since-deleted Facebook post, shared by a local outlet called Wave 3 News on April 17.

BLM uses 'dead black people to fund and empower white Democrats'

Just a day later, Owens brought that up on Twitter, writing: “BLM is a RACIST organization that uses the faces of dead black people to fund and empower white Democrats.” Palmer's daughter, Taylor, was a 26-year-old EMT from Louisville, Kentucky, who was shot to death by the police breaking into her home with a no-knock warrant for a drug bust. Taylor, with no criminal record, worked as a frontline medic in two local hospitals. Her mother had allegedly continued in the Facebook post: “She had a whole plan on becoming a nurse and buying a house and then starting a family.”

Taylor's murder was followed by nationwide protests condemning police brutality against the Black community, that erupted when George Floyd was murdered by Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin during an arrest. People chanted Taylor's name along with those of Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and several other victims but Palmer claims since then many have totally lost the focus.

While it's unclear who deleted the Facebook post, or why it was removed, Palmer continued with some shocking allegations on it, claiming: “I could walk in a room full of people who claim to be here for Breonna's family who don't even know who I am." She continued: " I've watched y'all raise money on behalf of Breonna's family who has never done a damn thing for us nor have we needed it or asked so talk about fraud. It's amazing how many people have lost focus ... I'm a say this before I go, I'm so sick of some of y'all and I was last anybody who needs it."

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors dubbed 'fraud'

As soon as Owens backed Palmer on Twitter, her claims were met with praise with some alleging the organization "collected over 1 billion dollars in donations, never uplifted a single black community and yet you tell me they support black lives?" Palmer too had made her claims public after BLM founder Patrisse Cullors almost broke down recalling the racist attacks on her after her three-bedroom, $3 million, Topanga Canyon, California, property purchase was shared by the New York Post. She claimed these attacks, sexist too in their nature, left her terrified, just a month after she was dubbed a “fraud” for buying a $1.4 million home in one of LA's predominantly White districts.

Owens had criticized Cullors at the time as she appeared on a Fox News segment, saying: "Apparently, the ‘Black movement’ was Patrisse moving herself, a Black woman, into other areas of the communities of people that she claims are oppressing Black Americans. Why doesn’t she want to live amongst Black people?” She then asked, “Why is she choosing to move herself into an all-White neighborhood? These are important questions.”

BLM took in $90 million worth in donations in 2020, reports the Associated Press. How much Cullors, an artist and university professor, is paid by the group she co-founded isn't clear. Cullors had co-founded the organization with Opal Tometi and Alicia Garza in 2013, after a neighborhood watch coordinator called George Zimmerman was acquitted for killing an unarmed teen, Trayvon Martin. Last year. the co-founders however left the group, with Cullors remaining in sole control of the BLM Global Network overseeing local chapters.
