Tamika Palmer, the mother of Breonna Taylor, criticized the Louisville chapter of BlackLivesMatter and along with several other “activists” including a Kentucky Democrat State Rep. for invoking her daughter's name to raise money.
In a Facebook post last week, Palmer wrote:
“I have never personally dealt with BLM Louisville, and personally have found them to be fraud, (KY Democrat State Rep) Attica Scott another fraud. 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, I’ve watched y’all raise money on behalf of Breonna’s family who has never done a damn thing for us nor have we needed it or asked so Talk about fraud. It’s amazing how many people have lost focus Smdh.”
Taylor was shot and killed by Louisville police in March 2020 during a botched drug raid.
