    Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder Patrisse Cullors held back tears while discussing criticism she faced last week over her housing portfolio, worth $3m (£2.17m).

    Ms Cullors, 37, who created the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter in 2013 and later co-founded the Black Lives Matter Network, was criticised last week after the New York Post revealed that she had spent $1.4m (£1.017m) on a Los Angeles property, her third residence in the city and fourth overall

    Do you have to be poor to campaign for equality?

    Why are plumbers almost all right wing?

    Is is it because their call out charge is probably 4x one weeks Univeral Credit and they have zero understanding of poverty.

    No, because it is not an organisation.

    The Conservative Party is an organisation. It has membership, subscriptions, a chairman, a secretary, a central office, a bank account and constituency parties. It holds Annual General Meetings. It can expel members.

    Plumbers who like lying incompetent buffoons are not an organisation. They are just individuals who have at least one opinion in common.

    BLM is a statement of fact. Many people believe it. Some don't. Some of the ones who don't believe it try to attack it without attracting the contempt that an outright denial would bring.

    The difference is plumbers are more important than the conservatives & BLM.

    There is a connection between them all:
    Conservatives generate schit, plumbers wallow in it, and BLM have to deal with it.

    It is possible that conservatives and plumbers seem to be overly concerned about leaks. :rolleyes:

    BLM are still yet to open their books and provide transparency.

    BLM are still yet to put the money raised into the black community.

    Are you saying she's not a Marxist or you saying it's OK to be a Marxist?

    Let this man explain

    Why is Bodd so concerned about BLM? Why does he want to denigrate BLM?

    BLM are an organisation, they even request you to donate on there BLM page.

    You are correct that it's a term, but it is also an organisation.

    https://blacklivesmatter.com/

    Rephrase that as you are being pedantic,

    BLM is a movement.

    BLM global network is an organisation.

    When people refer to BLM in the way I and the op has, it is taken as we are talking about the BLM global network

    The thing is it’s the GasSafe ones who are the all important members of a secret select organisation. We have secret handshakes, rituals & have infiltrated every echelon of society. We have secret gatherings every 5 years where what we discuss, I cannot divulge to “normal” people. We even have “special “ areas in shops, websites etc (even on here) there are areas the normal minions cannot step foot in.
    I could tell you a sample of what we discuss, but it is forbidden!!
    You have been warned, don’t smear the plumbing community.

    Can you show us their Charity Registration, their Company registration, or anything that purports to show that they are an organisation?
    I could create a web page showing me to be King of the Universe, and inviting donations, it doesn't make it true. :rolleyes:
