The Black Lives Matter organization is sitting on tens of millions of dollars and has come under scrutiny in recent weeks because they have failed to file the appropriate paperwork associated with a non-profit.
Now we are learning that co-founder Patrisse Cullors has used funds donated to BLM to pay millions of dollars to family and friends for various reasons.
This, combined with her home purchases, makes it look like BLM was nothing more than a massive grifter scheme.

The foundation’s cofounder, self-proclaimed Marxist Patrisse Cullors, used the foundation’s money to pay millions of dollars to family members, friends, and the father of her child. The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation in a 990 tax disclosure obtained by the AP reported that it “invested $32 million in stocks from the $90 million it received as donations” thanks to the 2020 race protests. It ended its last fiscal year with $42 million in net assets and has an operating budget of about $4 million. Under Cullors’s direction, BLM paid out nearly $970,000 to a company owned by Damon Turner, who has a child with Cullors; more than $840,000 to a security firm run by Cullors’s brother; and more than $2.1 million to a consulting firm owned by close Cullors associate Shalomyah Bowers. Cullors admitted the foundation employed her mother and sister as well as her brother.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
