In an interview with NPR, Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors insisted the group would not “be taking meetings with Donald Trump” and that there would be no negotiations between members of the group and his administration.
Rather than opening dialogue about race relations in America, Cullors and the BLM group would rather close their minds about what Trump could do for the black community in America. They’d rather protest and riot against alleged ‘white nationalism.’
“We’re not going to be taking meetings with Donald Trump,” 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.”

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.
Seems rational. A group demanding for years to be heard has decided they’d rather disrupt people with protests that typically turn into chaos that mutes their message, than meet with White House officials.
Cullors added that “We must reckon with the anti-blackness of America’s history that led to this political moment,” statements that practically echo the President of the United States who recently declared that Americans have still not fully overcome slavery or racism.
It is a very narrow thought process that leads to such conclusions. The left points fingers at the right for allegedly being closed-minded, yet insist in declaring racism where there is none, and sticking their fingers in their ears instead of listening to opposing viewpoints.
