Black Lives Matter Leader Rashad Turner Quits, Claims Group Is On ‘The Wrong Side Of History’

Rashad Turner, the former leader of Black Lives Matter St. Paul, is joining a nonprofit organization that actively opposes Black Lives Matter for their stance on charter schools.

One of the six demands issued by Black Lives Matter deals with charter schools, specifically their intent to enact a moratorium on them, alleging they perpetuate unequal federal funding and further racial disparities. Rashad Turner believes that charter schools give families greater choices on where they send their children to school.

Rashad Turner is now joining Minnesota Comeback as their director of community engagement, which has already dedicated $2.7 million worth of grants in support of public and charter schools. Minnesota Comeback also supports the Minneapolis program called Grow-Your-Own, which strives to develop more black teachers in public schools.

Daily Signal reports that Turner said, “To hear Black Lives Matter national and NAACP national come out with a moratorium on charter schools put me on the opposite side of the table, and I believe it put them on the wrong side of history.”

We’ve been critical of Rashad Turner in the past for his role in blindly leading Black Lives Matter St. Paul in inciting violence against police. His Black Lives Matter group was captured on video chanting, “pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon.” We’ve also exposed him for spreading misinformation about police actions that Black Lives Matter St. Paul was protesting, even though they knew absolutely nothing about the incident. A common characteristic of Black Lives Matter is to promote their own version of the truth based on their own misguided interpretation of how police should be trained and carry out their duties.

Ultimately, Rashad Turner separated himself from Black Lives Matter St. Paul after Black Lives Matter announced that they would be throwing their massive amount of cash and political power behind eliminating charter schools. It was only then that Turner came to the realization that Black Lives Matter wasn’t about black lives anything. Having said that, we aren’t as optimistic about a shift in Rashad Turner’s views on police.

Rashad Turner made his exit from the Black Lives Matter organization under protest, and has now placed himself in a position with Minnesota Comeback where he may actually be of some help to black families.

  • “It was only then that Turner came to the realization that Black Lives Matter wasn’t about black lives anything.”

    Took him long enough. He’s still a dummy, though.

  • Someone I used to Know

    I’m all for vouchers and charter schools, but that’s what made him decide?? It wasn’t all the lies or violence that was taking place?

      When you’re caught up in the whirlwind you don’t always see clearly. He’s been making decisions based on emotions and not fact and logic for a while now. Maybe this break away will be what he needs to see reality.

    • ExRoot

      Yeah, kind of like the Republicans decided not to back trump after the tape. After ask the irrational, deplorable crap he had done and said it was the tapes that was the line in the sand!! Hypocrites!!!!

      • Someone I used to Know

        Yeah, it does seem like they should’ve known what type of man he was before then. But how does that make them hypocrites?

  • Kristen Loomis

    Hopefully it wasn’t just the stance on Charter schools that caused him to begin to have a shift on his thinking. Maybe this will be the start of a bigger epiphany for him. At least he’s gone to an organization that appears to be more positive by leaps and bounds.

    And folks say “you just hate it hecasue you dont understand what it stands for.” Must be the EXACT reason this dude rolled out.

  • Chaching62

    That sounds all to familiar @democraticparty

  • Robert W Butler

    I hope this ain’t no Trojan Horse maybe this guy can put everything back on track

    It is apparent that all that really matters to this group is their riled up emotions, anger, violence, and hatred towards anything that resembles something other than themselves. Be it, even; people that resemble them in the aspect of the physical – but disagree with them in the aspect of the mental.
