In the year since the death of George Floyd, 37-year-old activist and Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder Patrisse Cullors has become a household name. Now, she's finally announced—as the last of the three original co-founders to do so—that she's stepping down from her role as the director of BLM umbrella group, the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF). Nevertheless, with massive enterntainment conglomerate contracts and the tacit endorsement (not to mention funding) of Big Tech, Cullors is poised to be even more influential in the coming months than she has been ever before.

It's no secret that the Black Lives Matter movement and its co-founder (and self-identified "Marxist") Patrisse Cullors has long accused American capitalism of being fundamentally, systemically racist and "wiping out entire communities"; these assertions are core tenets of multiple official Black Lives Matter organizations. But that hasn't stopped Cullors from signing a big contract with a major purveyor of BLM-reviled corporate consumerism: Warner Bros Television.
