Black Lives Matter Movement Received Nearly $83 Billion from Corporations

•, Newsweek and Breitbart

They asserted that "the BLM pressure campaigns, harassment, and moral blackmail also amounted to possibly the most lucrative shakedown of corporate America in its history." The goal of BLM is to undermine capitalism, the nation state, and Western civilization. The two BLM parent organizations are the Global Network and the Movement for Black Lives, and there are also more than 150 ideologically aligned organizations. Further downstream are the local BLM chapters, which do the movement's heavy lifting, and BLM At School that indoctrinates children in Critical Race Theory. The money is mostly hidden, but spending has been linked to buying luxury real estate, engaging in nepotism, disbursing grants to dozens of BLM chapters, and operating a PAC to "elect progressive community leaders, activists, and working-class candidates fighting for Black liberation."

Excerpt from Breitbart, sample of corporate donors:

The list reveals that several popular corporations from a wide range of different industries supplied the movement with large sums of cash. Walmart, for example, which is based in Arkansas, gave a whopping $100 million in support of BLM and related causes focusing on "racial equity." Amazon gave even more, supplying the movement with an astonishing $169.5 million. Silicon Valley Bank gave the movement $73.45 million.

Meanwhile, the pharmaceutical company Abbvie gave the movement over $62 million in funding. Allstate gave $7.7 million to the cause and American Express gave $50 million. Apple gave $100 million while AT&T gave $21.5 million. The movement and its causes received another $90 million from Nike.
