Black Lives Matter (BLM) went from a fringe leftist organization to hogging up the national spotlight in the summer of 2020. The reason? The death of violent ex-convict George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin.
Suddenly, BLM had its big “in.” This extremist Marxist group, which advocates dismantling the family, police, gender, and free society, saw a way to spread its message.
It would pretend to be focused on the rights of black Americans and police violence, while pushing its extreme political and anti-social message.
Let’s be honest: millions of Americans bought it. They assumed BLM cared about black people and hit the streets to protest in the middle of COVID lockdowns. They also passed a lot of cash into BLM coffers.
Now, people want to know where all that money went…
Show Me the Money
As the Washington Examiner recently reported, BLM has nobody steering the ship; we don’t even know who’s in charge of its giant $60 million budget. Where is the money that it’s built up and who’s actually running this bizarre, communist-backed extremist movement?
BLM raked in over $90 million in 2020 alone, with their head chief Patrisse Cullors putting two random members in charge after she stepped down, due to corruption questions in May 2021.
By later in the year, it turned out this handover of power never happened. The two people Cullors wanted to run the books weren’t interested in taking the job; they weren’t on the same page as BLM about how the responsibilities would play out.
This happened in September 2021. Since that time, it’s unclear who’s managing the roughly $60 million that’s pinging around in the BLM piggy bank.
This argument is macabre and nonsensical. Are you referencing BLM? If so, then how do you explain the millions (billions?) of dollars unaccounted for in the hands of three Black women who co-founded BLM?

It’s Time To Audit BLM
Let’s face it…
BLM is due for a full audit; we want to know where all their money is and who’s using it. We know Cullors spent over three million in real estate properties, supposedly without the organization’s money, but we don’t really know what else is going on.
When Cullors said Makani Themba and Monifa Bandele would take over BLM last spring, many assumed the case was closed. However, neither of them actually did, and they also now say they have no idea who did!
Those who are still on the leadership board of the organization, Shalomyah Bowers and Raymond Howard, haven’t even been answering basic questions from the media about what is going on.
Howard also appears to have been erasing his specific involvement in BLM in his online social media and professional pages. The obvious question is: why?
NEW: No one appears to have been in charge of Black Lives Matter and its $60 million bankroll for EIGHT MONTHS.
One of BLM's only known board members took steps to conceal his ties to the charity after I started asking questions.

The Bottom Line
BLM claims to care about black people and want to build a more just America. Yet, we don’t even know who’s currently running the organization and what they’re doing with its $60 million.
It’s time to audit them so hard they never think they can get away with this kind of behavior again.
