Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has resigned from her position as executive director. Don’t worry too much for her; she has a second book in the works and a multi-year TV development deal with Warner Bros. to tide her over while she looks for a new mansion to live in.

“I’ve created the infrastructure and the support, and the necessary bones and foundation, so that I can leave,” Cullors told The Associated Press. “It feels like the time is right.”
The 37-year-old activist said her resignation has been in the works for more than a year and has nothing to do with the personal attacks she has faced from far-right groups or any dissension within the movement.
“Those were right-wing attacks that tried to discredit my character, and I don’t operate off of what the right thinks about me,” Cullors said.
Black Lives Matter had said the “right-wing offensive” reporting about the Marxist co-founder’s new $1.4 million mansion in an almost exclusively white neighborhood “continues a tradition of terror by white supremacists.”
Time to cash out.
