Breonna Taylor’s Mother Slams BLM Group for Exploiting Daughter’s Death


The mother of shooting victim Breonna Taylor has denounced a Black Lives Matter chapter in a vitriolic Facebook post. The post from Tamika Palmer has since been removed, the New York Post reported. Taylor was killed in March 2020 when Louisville, Kentucky, police raided the apartment where she lived. When police were fired upon by Taylor’s then-boyfriend, they fired back, killing Taylor. Taylor’s death sparked widespread protests and riots. On Facebook, according to the Post, Palmer wrote that several community activists helped her after her daughter’s death, as did family members. However, she wrote, many of those who claim to be helping the family never did very much. “I think it’s crazy when people say they’ve been here since day 1,” the post stated, according to The Daily Wire. “I have never personally dealt with BLM Louisville and personally have found them to be fraud,” she wrote. Democratic state Rep. Attica Scott of Louisville is “another fraud,” Palmer wrote. “I could walk in a room full of people who claim to be here for Breonna’s family who don’t even know who I am,” she wrote, The Daily Wire reported.
