As the BLM protests start to wind down a bit, I am looking at how the dust & money is settling around the communities affected. As with most SJW uprisings, the emotions created by the groups, call to action, typically result in a large amount of progressive, especially white shamed Americans’ donations, who generously donate to the current cause.
The interesting thing about the funds raised during times like this, there seems to be a reoccurring, hidden, and sometimes devious misappropriation of the funds. The millions for BLM in 2020, like with Haiti, $400 million dollars, may never get to the people it was intended for. Typically it ends up going to the wealthy, connected, and again, in this case, politicians.
To start with, who is Black Lives Matter?
According to their website, they are an international group working to help black communities eradicate racism.
“#BlackLivesMatter was founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer. Black Lives Matter Foundation, Inc is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes. By combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centering Black joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives.”
Sounds straight forward so they direct you to donate to their cause
When you click on the “Donate” button on blacklivesmatter.com you are sent to an “ActBlue” donations page
According to the fine print, ActBlue is in compliance with all campaign finance laws:
When you research the expenditures of the ActBlue PAC, all of their contributions are directly going to top DNC campaigns:
So in the end, look at who is getting most of the BLM donations? I don’t think this what the average person had in mind.
Some of the activist leaders are now asking, on Twitter
Some of the city chapters are even changing their names to remove any affiliation with the BLM leadership.
Eventually, someone on the BLM side must figure out how to accomplish their goals with allowing crooked people to use the hard-earned, donated funds, to be funneled to corrupt and hidden people.
