A Texas real estate investor is suing Black Lives Matter – Sacramento and founder Tanya Faison after the group posted a “racist” email allegedly written by the investor on Facebook.
Karra Crowley and her husband, Christopher, are seeking the removal of all related posts and shares from BLM – Sacramento, as well as $75,000 in compensatory and general damages, punitive damages, court costs, and “other such relief as the court deems proper.”
The Crowleys say they lived in the Sacramento area for some time before moving to Texas in 2005.
BLM – Sacramento posted to Facebook alleged screenshots of an email conversation with someone from the address “email@example.com” on April 26. Captioning the images, the group said: “So this woman Karra Crowley has been emailing us and we figured she needs to be famous. She actually owns a business called Crowley Properties in Roseville but she lives in Loomis… Our phone, emails, and Instagram seem to have been doxxed after the Chauvin verdict. They seem to be mad.”
The post also included tags for several Sacramento media outlets, as well as national media outlets. One of the emails contained in the photos from “firstname.lastname@example.org” read:
“To whom it may concern, I am sick and tired of hearing about you guys on the news. You guys are nothing but a bunch of domestic terrorists. Crying because you can’t have your way about something. Why don’t you just give up, your (sic) never going to be able to change the world. EVER!!!! GROW THE F*** UP, White lives matter!!!!”
The email closed with the name of the supposed sender: “Karra Crowley” and “Crowley Properties.” More images on the post feature follow-up emails with racist messages, coming from the same email address.
The Crowleys’ lawsuit claims that they did not write or send the messages and that the email address is not even theirs. “The lawsuit was filed because we had no other alternative… the emails did not come from me,” Karra Crowley told ABC10.
