The founder of the Black Lives Matter chapter in St. Paul, Minn. said he left the group after learning the “ugly truth” of the organization from the inside.

Rashard Turner told his story on a YouTube video for the group TakeCharge, a black-led organization that posts content on cultural issues, like critical race theory, as reported by the Daily Wire.

“After a year on the inside, I learned they had little concern for rebuilding black families, and they cared even less about improving the quality of education for students in Minneapolis,” Turner said in the video below.

The former BLM activist said he learned the truth of BLM when it publicly opposed charter schools alongside teacher unions. Turner said he believes charter schools help black American children.

“I was an insider in Black Lives Matter. And I learned the ugly truth,” he said. “The moratorium on charter schools does not support rebuilding the black family. But it does create barriers to a better education for black children.”

Turner is still fighting for black children, just outside of the BLM organization.

“I resigned from Black Lives Matter after a year and a half. But I didn’t quit working to improve black lives and access to a great education,” he said.
