One of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter Los Angeles expressed her disapproval of Democratic candidate Joe Biden, saying he is part of the "violent white supremacist system" in America.
Even as BLM collected over $1 billion to fund Biden and the Democratic National Committee, one of the co-founders, Dr. Melina Abdullah, is dismayed that she is being forced to choose between two evils -- Biden and President Donald Trump.
"People are feeling dismayed that the choices are between, you know, a violent white supremacist and another person who represents that same system," she said in a Zoom interview with ABC News.
Abdullah, a professor of Pan-African Studies at California State University, Los Angeles, said no matter the outcome of the election, she plans to continue protesting in the streets.
"In the midst of protest," she said, "a recognition that no matter what the outcome is to any of these things, we have to stay in the streets."
According to a survey conducted by the Associated Press and NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, support for Black Lives Matter has dropped to 39% from over 54% in June.
Another recent poll showed support for Trump among Black males increased to 45%.
