For the seventh consecutive year, Black Lives Matter Global is urging its followers to Build Black, Buy Black and Bank Black this holiday season.
However, many supporters of the movement also took to social media to scrutinize the organization’s stance.
That’s because Black Lives Matter has received millions in corporate dollars. Some went as far as to call out that Black Lives Matter leaders like co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors, who purchased millions of dollars in real estate in predominantly white communities.
Melina Abdullah, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Los Angeles, joins Charles Blow on “Prime” to discuss the balancing act between righteous causes and unrighteous dollars.
All this and more on “Prime.”
