Glad to see some people waking up. And good on this guy for actually caring and continuing his mission with this new organization.

I think we need some way to distinguish the organisation from the ideal.

The organisation may be flawed - I have no way of knowing, but that doesn't take away from the fact that as an ideal, BLM is something to strive for.

For clarity, just because BLM-the group is flawed, that doesn't mean BLM-the principle is.

In this case it's particularly relevant. There are many organizations that support the Black Lives Matter movement, and among supporters of that idea there are a lot of people who are unhappy with the Black Lives Matter Foundation itself. Many people who support the movement (especially ones who are more tapped in than is typical) go elsewhere with donations because of the issues with that particular group. So someone who believes in the BLM movement deciding to leave their local chapter of the BLM foundation is not uncommon at all.
