- The University of Florida hosted the founders of Black Lives Matter for a virtual speaking event.
- The co-founders accused the Trump administration of being a “white supremacist” government that commits “violence” and “torture.”
- One of the founders, Patrisse Cullors, has claimed she and others in the movement were “trained Marxists,” while another, Opal Tometi, has been scrutinized for cozying up to socialist Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro.
