Rashard Turner, the founder of a Black Lives Matter chapter in Minnesota who later quit the group, told Fox News on Thursday night that teachers unions have “co-opted” the Black Lives Matter movement and are ruining children’s hopes and dreams.
“BLM has been co-opted, and when I say co-opted, I mean, teachers unions who show up to these woke BLM marches, they have their signs, you might see the sign in their yard that says ‘Black Lives Matter,’” Turner said. “But Monday through Friday, teachers unions are killing our children’s hopes and dreams. So if we’re talking about propaganda, we need to be looking at the teachers unions, and the sick mess that they’re putting out there that’s keeping our children out of schools these past couple of years, keeping the masks on our children. We need to unmask the illiteracy machine that is here in Minnesota with our education system.”
