Black Lives Matter has not been having a good year. You’d think, with a Democrat in the White House, a group like BLM would be sailing high.
But 2020 did tremendous damage to a group that claims to be fighting for black lives. Many Americans blamed the unending conflict, rioting, and destruction of major cities on BLM. In fact, studies have revealed that the group’s support has plummeted in recent months.
Following that bad news was a scandal surrounding one of the activist movement’s founders. Patrisse Cullor, a “trained Marxist” who formed the share-the-wealth organization, was outed for spending millions on multiple homes.
People are now asking what has Black Lives Matter done with the considerable financial support they received over the years. Did they spend all that money on impoverished communities with high black populations? No. So, where is the money? Now, a father of a well-known victim is joining the fight, against BLM.
Michael Brown Sr. has signed his name to a new group called BLM 10 Plus, which seeks financial transparency from BLM Global Network Foundation, as controversy surrounding BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullor and her lavish lifestyle continues to bubble…
Black Lives Matter took in $90 million in 2020, and was left with a balance sheet of $60 million by January 2021. Around $8 million was spent on expenses, including staffing costs with the other $20 million donated to local chapters and nonprofits.
Those numbers – and news of Cullors’ property portfolio – has led to questions about how BLM is spending its money, and complaints over a lack of transparency from bereaved families previously supported by the group. [Source: Daily Wire]
That’s quite a lot of money raised for a group known mostly for looting malls. What does BLM need with $90 million? They claim $20 million was given to “local chapters and nonprofits.” Uh-huh. What did they do with all that scratch?
Because they certainly didn’t use it to clean up the communities they torched back in May, June, and July of 2020.
That still leaves a large chunk of their funds gone unaccounted for. What did the leaders of BLM do with that $60 million? How can a national organization, that is being watched by many people, hide $60 million?
Perhaps all that money when to the folks at the top, including Cullor and her other co-founders?
If you think something underhanded is going on with BLM, you’re not alone. Michael Brown Sr. has watched the death of his son be used to make strangers filthy rich. But has anything changed to prevent other young black man from dying? Has BLM done a single thing to improve relationships between black people and cops? Minorities and white people?
We can’t see the evidence of that. But BLM founders are able to put security fencing around their expensive, secluded homes.
Perhaps BLM 10 Plus should launch a few investigations?
