    A former Black Lives Matter leader admitted the charity was not prepared to handle the influx of 'white guilt money' donated after the murder of George Floyd and argues mistakes made with the funds are now being 'weaponized against her.'  Patrisse Cullors, who co-founded the charity in 2013, said BLM saw an unexpected 'tsunami of funding' - to the tune of $90 million - after Floyd was killed by Minneapolis police in 2020 and argued the charity did not have the infrastructure to support the donations. 'It was a major shock,' she told MSNBC's Into America podcast Monday. 'You know, contrary to what, you know, has been reported, much of the funding that came in was from individual donors. That was a lot of white guilt money. There's a lot of white folks being like, 'We just got to put the money.'' Cullors, who resigned from BLM last year after it was revealed she amassed a $3.2 million property portfolio, argues that her biggest mistake in regard to her financials was not drawing a salary from the foundation.  'I should have...
    (WARNING: Explicit language) See on Instagram Owens admits that she did visit the BLM co-founder's $1.4 million home in the predominantly white town of Topanga Canyon, California. However, Owens repudiates the accusation that she harassed Cullors, and believes her video is proof. Owens is allegedly making a documentary about the finances of Black Lives Matter, which will be released on May 23. The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation reportedly raked in a whopping $90 million in donations in 2020. Owens brought a film crew with her to the residence of the BLM activist. The video shows Owens politely saying, "We’re not trying to harass you. We’ll gladly leave. We’re just wondering if we can speak to anybody?" The conservative firebrand accused Cullors of crying "crocodile tears." Owens wrote on Twitter, "Remember she fake cried and said I harassed her? LIAR." Ownes asked, "Remember last week when she hopped on Instagram and LIED, claiming that she was unsafe and scared because I 'demanded' to see her?" "I simply showed up, spoke to a white security...
    Black Lives Matter of Greater New York co-founder Hawk Newsome called New York City Mayor Eric Adams “a coon” on Thursday. Appearing on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom, Newsome defended BLM and slammed Adams. The show played a clip from Adams’ appearance on Spectrum News NY1 on April 14. “Where are all those who stated Black Lives Matter? If Black lives matters, then the thousands of people I saw on the street when Floyd was murdered should be on the street right now stating that the lives of these Black children that are dying every night matters. It can’t be hypocrites,” said Adams, referring to George Floyd, a Black man who was murdered by then-Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin in 2020 when Chauvin put his left knee on Floyd’s neck while Floyd was in custody. “The subject is African-Americans. I would also argue White lives matter, too. Everybody’s life matters here,” said America’s Newsroom co-host Bill Hemmer. “What the mayor contends, though, is that the same reaction is not given. What would you say to him?” “It was smooth the way...
    Black Lives Matter co-founder and “trained Marxist” Patrisse Cullors — who resigned from BLM amid controversy about her personal wealth — says she has visited hate crime hoaxer and disgraced actor Jussie Smollett in jail, where she found that he has been “sleeping on a restraint bed,” which she called “unacceptable.” Cullors is now urging the public to call the jail and demand that Smollett be freed. “I’m in Chicago and was able to see Jussie today, and he’s strong, but what’s happening inside is just — it’s just unacceptable,” Cullors said in a recent video. “Today is the first day that he’s going to be able to get an actual bed. He’s been sleeping on a restraint bed.” Watch Below: Hey guys!

    FLOSSMOOR, Ill. -- "And it was at that moment that I was like, woah, this isn't just community service. I can really turn this into something."In 2014, at just 16, Flossmoor native Destiny Watson started the youth-based nonprofit organization known as You Matter 2. It all started when Destiny wanted to attend WE Day Illinois. This annual event was for youth serving their community, but at the time her high school didn't have a club that would help her to get there, said Tamika Britten, Destiny's mother and You Matter 2's Associate Director. "So, she decided to start one herself," Britten said. After starting You Matter 2 and putting in hundreds of service hours, Destiny was invited to a youth community dinner, where she received a full scholarship to any college of her choosing from Magic Johnson.After graduating with a degree in human rights and now pursuing a masters in nonprofit administration, 23-year-old Destiny is serving her community and building You Matter 2 into a national name. You Matter 2 holds annual events such as a back to school drive...
    Black Lives Matter transferred millions of dollars to a Canadian charity run by the wife of co-founder Patrisse Cullors, according to a report, which was used to buy a $6.3 million Toronto mansion to house an arts center. News of the transfer of money to the Canadian group has raised further questions about transparency and accountability within Black Lives Matter - coming days after auditors said an inquiry into the handling of BLM's $60 million war chest was necessary, and less than a year after Cullors was forced to stand down amid questions about her own property empire.  BLM Canada announced in July 2021 that they had recently purchased a three story Victorian mansion in the Baldwin Village area of Toronto, close to downtown. The imposing red brick house was previously the headquarters of the Communist Party. On Saturday, The New York Post reported that the funds to purchase the property came from Black Lives Matter, and were transferred from the global network to M4BJ - a Toronto-based non-profit set up by Janaya Khan and other Canadian activists. Khan is the...
    Charity auditors have expressed alarm at the management of Black Lives Matter's $60 million in donations, after it emerged that people announced as leading the organization never took up the role, and no one seemed able to say who was handling the finances. The most recent tax filing for the charity, from 2019, gives an address in Los Angeles that does not exist, and the two remaining BLM directors identified by The Washington Examiner were not able to assist - with one even scrubbing BLM associations from his social media after he was contacted by the paper.  They are yet to file a 2020 return, a Form 990, as required - which could see BLM fined by the IRS.  Laurie Styron, executive director of CharityWatch, said the findings were deeply troubling, and said they should have filed their 2020 form by now.  'Like a giant ghost ship full of treasure drifting in the night with no captain, no discernible crew, and no clear direction,' she said. Paul Kamenar, counsel for conservative watchdog group the National Legal and Policy Center, told...
    The co-founder of Black Lives Matter Los Angeles was targeted in second "swatting" incident in a week on Wednesday after filing a lawsuit against the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) for a similar incident last year.  Melina Abdullah was not home during the latest incident and was alerted by her neighbors to a large police presence outside her home around 5:45 p.m., according to The Los Angeles Times. Police are investigating the incident as swatting, or reports of a false emergency in an effort to attract a large police presence to a location, The Times said.  "NO ONE WILL EVER SCARE ME OUT OF THIS WORK,” Abdullah tweeted on Thursday. LAPD, white supremacists, and haters…NO ONE WILL EVER SCARE ME OUT OF THIS WORK. #BlackLivesMatter #SacredDuty #WeKeepUsSafe #RevolutionaryButGangster #FunkOrDie ✊ https://t.co/xn2Ebi4bB8— Melina Abdullah (@DocMellyMel) September 30, 2021 According to The Times, six police units and a supervisor were sent to the scene because of the "serious nature" of the crime reported and the caller's alleged intention kidnap Abdullah at gunpoint.  Police left the scene after determining that no one was in danger.  "It is the...
    Britain's most prestigious foreign affairs think-tank was last night accused of becoming the latest institution in thrall to ‘woke culture’ after giving awards to a Black Lives Matter leader and Greta Thunberg. Chatham House, also known as the Royal Institute of International Affairs, has made three Centenary Awards ‘recognising outstanding contributions to confronting the critical challenges facing the world today’. The Centenary Changemakers Award went to Ms Thunberg, 18, the Swedish activist challenging world leaders to avert climate change, while the Centenary Diversity Champion Award went to Melina Abdullah, co-founder of the Los Angeles chapter of Black Lives Matter. The movement was formed to protest against police brutality and violence against black people, but critics say it has led to the silencing of free speech, with academics hesitant to talk about restricted freedoms in case its followers target them. The institute said the award recognised ‘the momentous work Black Lives Matter has done towards empowering black people and promoting a more inclusive approach to race in policy-making.  The Centenary Changemakers Award went to Greta Thunberg (pictured), 18, the Swedish...
    Michael Brown's father has joined an anti-BLM leadership movement as more chapters demand 'accountability' after the property empire of Patrisse Cullors was exposed. The original ten chapters of Black Lives Matter are demanding accountability and transparency from the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, the nonprofit that provides them with funding, and have joined forces as BLM 10 Plus. Michael Brown Sr. is perhaps the most notable name to join the BLM 10 Plus movement, Fox News reported.  Michael Brown, 18, was killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014. His death and the violence between police and protesters in the aftermath have been largely credited for the early spread of the Black Lives Matter movement.

    Jack Davis, The Western Journal May 28, 2021 0 Comments Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors announced Thursday that she will be leaving the group behind as questions about her spending refuse to fade away. Cullors, whose multimillion-dollar mansion purchases led to controversy over the group’s finances, said she is moving on to focus on a TV deal with Warner Bros. and the release of her second book, according to The Associated Press. The 37-year-old spent nearly six years leading the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation. Friday is her last day on the job. “I’ve created the infrastructure and the support, and the necessary bones and foundation, so that I can leave,” she said, according to the AP. “It feels like the time is right.” Cullors claimed the raging controversy over her mansion-buying spree had nothing to do with her exit, which she said was planned well in advance. “Those were right-wing attacks that tried to discredit my character, and I don’t operate off of what the right thinks about me,” she said.
