The founder of a Black Lives Matter chapter in St. Paul, Minnesota, said the left-wing organization engages in a form of racism because it opposes school choice.

Rashard Turner, who left Black Lives Matter, released a video on May 26 saying he learned the “ugly truth” about the group operates and claimed that “they had little concern for rebuilding black families, and they cared even less about improving the quality of education for students in Minneapolis.”

In a June 2 interview with Fox News, he said Black Lives Matter publicly signaled opposition to charter schools, which, according to him, was “a direct attack on black families” and “on black children.”
