Leo Terrell, a civil rights attorney, appeared in the talk show “Life, Liberty & Levin” and talked about his issues with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. According to him, the organization’s motivation is money.
A False Narrative
“This is why Black Lives Matter is basically, in my opinion, the Al Sharpton of the 21st century. They’re profiteers. They are profiting on trying to give a narrative, a false narrative that is white racist cops, deaths destroying the black community,” Terrell said to host Mark Levin.
“You point out Chicago. No [BLM] presence walking through the neighborhood protesting to stop black-on-black crime. Al Sharpton goes to the George Floyd funeral,” he then stated. You use a funeral to launch a campaign speech attacking Donald Trump. I don’t see Al Sharpton in Chicago. That 3-year-old kid who was killed. You know why? Because it’s not profitable. There’s no money to be made,” he also said.
Terrell also pointed out that he’s “sick of that narrative.”
“This is 2020. I an African American on your show. It’s not like it was 50 years ago. But Black Lives Matter and the Democratic leadership wants you to think it’s 1960. Well, I’m sick of that narrative,” he then added.
Additionally, according to Terrell, “the most insulting” reason Democrats are scared of the movement is that they think they speak for all African Americans, as per Fox News.
“Let me be clear, Black Lives Matter does not speak for Leo Terrell. And there is no representative, there is no monolithic group like Black Lives Matter that speak for African Americans,” Terrell also said.
