Black Lives Matter Founder Says No Negotiating With Trump
(AllHipHop News) It looks like there will be no love lost between Donald Trump and the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement.
In a recent interview with NPR, co-founder Patrisse Cullors said there would be absolutely no negotiating with Donald Trump or anyone in his administration.
“We're not going to be taking meetings with Donald Trump,” Patrisse Cullors said. “We're not going to be sitting with his Attorney General. What we will be doing is protesting. What we will be doing is calling for an end to white nationalism and fascism.”
The Black Lives Matter movement has grown into a nation-wide network with more than 40 chapters inside the United States and around the world.
In a statement issued shortly after Donald Trump's election, the group said they were working on an elaborate strategy to “eradicate both white supremacy and implicit bias towards it.”
"We must reckon with the anti-blackness of America's history that led to this political moment," the group told Mic.com in a statement.
The activists are also concerned about Trump's appointment of Alabama senator Jeff Sessions as the Attorney General of the United States.
Either way, Black Lives Matter is preparing for more protests centering around the injustices happening to African-American men around the United States.
