Black Lives Matter Sacramento sued over racist posts using businesswoman’s name

Black Lives Matter Sacramento sued over racist posts using businesswoman’s name

Karra Crowley doesn’t post much on Facebook, but she learned the power of social media last Monday when an assistant called her and told her she had a big problem.

Crowley, a Texas businesswoman who was in Sacramento at the time, logged on to find a series of comments on the Black Lives Matter Sacramento page attacking her as “VILE,” a racist and a Nazi.

The only problem, Crowley says, is she was being attacked for a deeply offensive post on the BLM page that didn’t come from her.

“Shock, disbelief, I almost fell over,” Crowley said Monday recounting her reaction. “And then when I read the posts I was appalled, I was disgusted.”

Now, Crowley, who spent decades working as a real estate investor in Sacramento, is suing BLM Sacramento and founder Tanya Faison in federal court in Sacramento.
