Tax Documents Further Expose Black Lives Matter Organization As Racist Multimillion-Dollar Grifter Project

Tax Documents Further Expose Black Lives Matter Organization As Racist Multimillion-Dollar Grifter Project

Public tax filings for the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation further exposed the racist organization built explicitly on Marxist values as a multimillion-dollar enterprise to enrich its leadership while cloaked in the self-righteousness of social justice.

According to the New York Post on Tuesday, disgraced co-founder Patrisse Cullors, who stepped down last year amid scrutiny of a series of financial scandals, funneled major six-figure sums to family members from the network’s donors. Paul Cullors, Patrisse’s brother, raked in $840,000 from the nonprofit’s charity funds. Damon Turner, who fathers a child with Patrisse, owns a company that was paid nearly $970,000 from the organization for “creative services” including “produc[ing] live events.”

“The 63-page Form 990 document, an annual filing required for nonprofit organizations to maintain their tax-exempt status, shows Cullors reimbursed the organization $73,523 for a charter flight,” the Post reported. “BLM insists she took the flight in 2021 out of concern for the COVID-19 pandemic and the health risks that come with it.”

Meanwhile, Cullors “already found herself in hot water after receiving a cool $120,000 payment for undisclosed ‘consulting fees’ by BLM.”

The document, published by the Associated Press on Tuesday, shows the organization that raised $90 million in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death ended its fiscal year on June 30, 2021 with nearly $42 million in assets.

A board member said the BLM Global Network operates with a $4 million dollar budget with tax forms detailing $32 million invested in stocks that are expected to serve as a permanent endowment fund for the group’s work.

“More than $37 million was spent by the foundation on grants, real estate, and charter on private flights, according to the tax filings,” the Post wrote.

Major purchases with little oversight have raised eyebrows in recent months as the group’s leadership buys high-priced homes in Los Angeles and Toronto for questionable use.

[LISTEN: Did BLM Dupe Corporate America Out Of Millions?]

Prior to her resignation last summer, Patrisse Cullors used the organization’s new $6 million dollar California mansion to throw her son a private birthday party despite claims she would never use the property for personal use.

“I look back at that and think, that probably wasn’t the best idea,” she told the Associated Press after she was caught.

In January, the organization under fire for an apparent absence of leadership overseeing its tens of millions in tax-exempt funds drew outrage after the purchase of a 10,000-square-foot Canadian mansion in Toronto for more than $8 million.

“For BLM Canada to take money from BLM Global Network [Foundation] for a building without consulting the community was unethical,” Canadian BLM activists Sarah Jama and Sahra Soudi said in a statement following the purchase. “For BLM Canada to refuse to answer questions from young Black organizers goes against the spirit of movement-building.”

The pair of Canadian activists left the Toronto chapter after.

But according to Cullors, questions surrounding the organization’s financial ethics are racist and the 990 nonprofit “structure” is “deeply unsafe.”

Commentary by your Host: Roger Landry (TLB)

Hello everyone and welcome to Episode #16 of TLBTalk Radio. The title of today’s show is A Few Questions For Joe-Bob.

Today’s show presents an article written by an author I continue to gain more respect for with every article of his I read … but more on this as we proceed.

Before we get started I would like to once again, say thanks to RBN for the platform, to Sam, the show producer, and to Annie at Shake and Wake Radio for this shows replays on Thursdays, and for also hosting my newest show Eagle’s Eye Report on Wednesdays from 4-5 PM Central. They are all a very significant part of the weekly success and proliferation of The Liberty Beacon Project’s Message

As is usual the message I bring to you today is not entertainment, nor is it baseless guesses, or remote possibilities. Most of what I deliver is in your face reality, recorded facts or an inevitability depending on our course of action.

So, Down to Business …

What follows is based on an article written by Andrew W. Coy, not word for word but as a solid foundation for this presentation. A link to his original article, as well as more of his writings can be found below the list of questions in this article. He is definitely worth a look-see!.

Now we are all aware that it will be a cold day in hell when Joe-Bob will take the time to answer even one of these questions as his ‘truthful‘ answers would only succeed in further tanking his already dismal approval rating. Is it even possible to have negative approval ratings … maybe Joe-Bob will show us going forward.

Although not a complete list, the questions presented today are a good start to what We The People need to have answers for. If this is all taken at face value … We know one thing for sure … we have a traitor to America (or the puppet of Traitors) sitting in the White House. A supposed representative of the people who’s only mission or intent is … the destruction of America !!!

Show Talking Points

The Questions presented in the above show:

  1. Why are you leaving the southern border wide open with no troops, no army, and no border security? It leaves children exposed to human trafficking, and our countrymen vulnerable to terrorism.

  2. Why do you allow a porous border, facilitating illegal and unconstitutional immigration?

  3. Why, Mr. Biden, are you purposely ignoring your constitutional responsibility to protect the homeland?

  4. Why are you intentionally enacting policies that hike up the price of gasoline?

  5. Why do you pursue policies that drive up the price of food?

  6. Why do you push an agenda that drives up the inflation rate to a 40-year high?

  7. Why did you demand policies that led to a supply-chain issue, thus resulting in empty shelves at the grocery store and a food shortage?

  8. Why promote policies that have made the price of homes unaffordable for many families, and made it so that rental properties are out of reach for many couples?

  9. Why have you brought us to a place where there is a shortage of fertilizer for farmers, and thus the yield on crops will be smaller, and there will be even less food for American families?

  10. Why are citizens who acted within their legal rights during the J6 rally imprisoned in Washington D.C.?

  11. Why do they remain in American Gulags without being officially charged and without the provision of bail?

  12. Why did you say it is illegal and an insurrection to question the outcome of the stolen 2020 election?

  13. Why are you against voter identification to vote lawfully, but are insistent on a vaccination passport to enter a store or fly on a plane?

  14. Why do you call your enemies white supremacists?

  15. Why did seven states all stop the counting of votes, all at the same time, on election night?

  16. Why are you trying to make it illegal for your political opponents to run for office against you?

  17. Do you believe it is constitutional to make your political opponents…. political prisoners?

  18. Why would your government lie about where the COVID-19 virus actually originated?

  19. Why did you shut down schools, make the wearing of masks mandatory, require citizens to keep six feet apart, and impose an experimental vaccine – when it was clear these “solutions” did not work?

  20. Why did your government cancel doctors who called for herd immunity?

  21. Why did you force an experimental vaccine on the citizenry, when it clearly violated the Nuremberg Code?

  22. Why during COVID, did you lock down schools and churches – but keep open liquor stores, hemp centers, and needle exchanges?

  23. Why are you against allowing individual states, within our federal system, to decide on their own laws with respect to the pro-life issue?

  24. Why are you in favor of more federal legislative protection for snakes, alligators and turtles, more than you are for protecting living babies inside the womb?

  25. Why would your Deep State create a Ministry of Truth?

  26. Why does your government look much more like a George Orwell novel rather than a Norman Rockwell picture?

  27. Is it you and your Deep State who will be deciding what is truth and fact, and what is disinformation and misinformation?

  28. Do you recognize and adhere to the First and the Second Amendments?

  29. Do you believe that all of our laws, policies, and presidential executive orders must adhere to and follow the Bill of Rights?

  30. Will the Ministry of Truth fall underneath and be in line with the U.S. Constitution and also be subject to Supreme Court decisions?

  31. Why does the Deep State surveillance community believe it is “mostly peaceful protests” when BLM or Antifa commit violence, but it is treasonous insurrection when MAGA commits less offense?

  32. Why did you say that “MAGA was the most extreme political group” in American history?

  33. Why did your Department of Defense leave behind $83 billion worth of military equipment for the terrorists in Afghanistan to keep?

  34. Why has your Secretary of State made it easier for the government of Iran to possess nuclear weapons?

  35. Why does your government want to treat Israel and Iran equally?

  36. Why are you so much more worried about the borders of Ukraine facing foreign invasion than you are about America’s?

  39. Why are you so intent on driving Christians, conservatives, and constitutionalists out of the military?

  40. Why do you allow our military to become more ‘woke’ than warrior?

  41. Why does your military leadership seem to empathize more with Marx, Mao, and Che than they do with Grant, Ike, and Patton?

  42. Why do you think it is acceptable for public schools to groom young children?

  43. If there truly are more than two sexes, how many exactly are there?

  44. Why do you want curricula in our schools that will teach kids to hate each other because of the color of their skin?

  45. Why do you refuse to put many violent criminals in jail, and give early release to others? Why do you ignore massive robberies taking place in our cities with no one being held accountable?

  46. Why are you pushing curricula in our schools that teach children to hate our Founding, despise our Founding Fathers, and to even change the date of America’s birth?

  47. Why did you tolerate mobs of BLM and Antifa pulling down statues of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt?

CNN Claims Pro-Life Supporters Will Turn Violent with SCOTUS Victory, Amish Extremists now Threatening ANTIFA Peacekeepers

CNN Claims Pro-Life Supporters Will Turn Violent with SCOTUS Victory, Amish Extremists now Threatening ANTIFA Peacekeepers

No, it’s not opposite day.  This example is just another example of how the Ministry of Truth operates.  Political violence is speech, unless actual speech is heard from their opposition; then, it becomes violence.  War is peace. Water is dry, etc. George Orwell sighs. {Direct Rumble Link}

Knowing there is an increased likelihood of violence incited by far-left democrat activists and the White House, CNN moves their advance narrative engineering team into place to lay the blame for violence at the feet of their political opposition.  With Roe -v- Wade potentially being overturned, Amish extremists are now going to lay siege to the peaceful assembly of ANTIFA in DC, or something equally stupid.  WATCH:

.

If the issues were not serious, this nonsense from CNN would be funny.  Far left activists have been threatening the Supreme Court justices and the White House has been provoking their political allies to keep up the anger against the court.  As a result, every sub-chapter of leftist political activism has been triggered to a state of rage and grievance.  The rhetoric and hatred expressed toward the justices on the court has been extreme.

However, CNN redefines the mob by calling them “right-wing”, the exact opposite of who is making the threats.

Keep in mind, none of the previous ANTIFA or Black Lives Matter violence could take place without the expressed support from the FBI.  If the FBI wanted to stop riots, political violence or the unlawful intimidation of federal judges, they could.

It would be very easy for the FBI to intercept the people making threats and arrest them for intimidation of federal judges.  18 U.S.C. § 1503Whoever . . . corruptly or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice, shall be (guilty of an offense).”   The reason the FBI and DOJ are staying silent, is because the FBI and DOJ support the targeting of the Supreme Court.  It really is that simple.

It should be alarming how the Executive Branch of the United States Government is openly targeting the Judicial Branch of the United States Government, but that point seems to be completely missed by everyone.   U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland standing aside while extremists in the democrat party attack supreme court justices only highlights how political the DOJ and FBI have become.

Last night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson drew attention to the media portrayal and the violent targeting now condoned by DHS, DOJ, FBI and the White House. {Direct Rumble Link} – WATCH:

5 Ways American Corporations Can Avoid Becoming The Next Disney

5 Ways American Corporations Can Avoid Becoming The Next Disney

Corporate America is experiencing a crisis of wokeness. There is a massive disconnect between the board rooms and their consumers, and it is affecting their bottom lines. Despite what you read in many media outlets, most Americans do not believe they are oppressed or that our country is a bad place. They want to laugh at funny jokes, enjoy time with their families, and generally live their lives joyfully.

Disney has provided the latest case study, as the most pronounced failure to navigate today’s political-cultural environment. CEO Bob Chapek first declined to weigh in on a political issue, Florida’s parental rights law, which was written to prevent classroom discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity for kindergartners through third graders.

Then a very loud minority of his employees complained, so he reversed course and said the company would seek to have the law repealed. That triggered parents across the country to denounce Disney, and Florida’s state government to pass another law revoking Disney’s special status in Florida as a self-governing improvement district. Since declaring its fealty to the leftist woke mob, Disney’s stock has fallen by approximately 20 percent and its market cap has shrunk by tens of billions of dollars.

This is not the first time this has happened to major entities in the past year. Delta Airlines and Major League Baseball adopted absurd political positions after Georgia passed a new voting law that is less stringent than those of most states. It chose to side with the woke mob over common sense by essentially declaring, without any basis whatsoever, that Georgia’s voting laws are racist. MLB even moved its All-Star game out of Atlanta over the issue, thereby taking business away from thousands of black-owned enterprises and families and leaving a trail of resentment in its wake.

These incidents were entirely preventable failures of leadership. The good news is that there is an answer for the many CEOs now, finally, asking the very sensible question: how do we prevent ourselves from becoming the next Disney?

1. Never Bow to the Mob

Strong leaders maintain the courage of their convictions, and people respect them. Chapek’s initial instinct to stay out of the fray was the right one.

Politicians routinely criticize their opponents for being “flip-floppers” because it calls into question their credibility. Chapek flip-flopped in a humiliating fashion. He not only made a U-turn on the company’s policy, he issued a shameful and completely unbelievable apology that led shareholders, customers, and any other interested parties to think that this man will say anything to try to end a controversy.

Furthermore, the mob will never, ever be satisfied. Bowing to the mob never ends with the mob saying thank you and going on their way. It is always “only a first step,” after which point they will continue to demand fealty in perpetuity.

Conversely, if you don’t give in, they will eventually move on to another weaker target because they can only sustain a pressure campaign for a limited period of time. Readers eventually move on to some other outrage of the day.

Hold fast in your determination to maintain your role and defend your values. Reach out to those who agree with you. Build a coalition of support and a steady drumbeat of public content about that support. There are millions upon millions of Americans who will join your side against the mob, and you will find strength in their resolve as well.

2. Stop Bribing People Who Hate You

As part of Chapek’s embarrassing and weak apology effort, he pledged $5 million to the Human Rights Campaign, an impossibly liberal and radical organization that exists to elect Democrats and purports to support LGTBQ people, but wages war against LGTBQ people who dare to think for themselves and hold any conservative values.

Dovetailing with point number one, they will never be satisfied. What was HRC’s response to Disney’s donation? They rejected it, publicly scolded Disney, and demanded this be only the beginning of Disney’s advocacy efforts in line with their views. Once Disney has proven their obedience sufficiently, only then will HRC accept the millions of dollars, and undoubtedly demand millions more.

Similarly, many of the nation’s largest corporations donated to Black Lives Matter since 2020 to show how virtuous they were. Meanwhile, BLM exists to advance radical Marxist policies and would gladly put their corporate donors in gulags. It has since been indicated that BLM’s money went to purchase numerous multi-million-dollar mansions for its founders — not to advance any sort of social justice agenda. Moreover, some of those funds have been used to bail violent criminals out of jail after committing horrific crimes.

Just please, for the love of all that is holy, stop funding organizations that hate you. The murderous Russian communist Vladimir Lenin famously quipped, “We will sell the capitalist nations the rope with which they will hang themselves.” Stop falling for extortion at the hands of crybullies.

3. Trust Your Instincts

Trust your instincts. Be very skeptical of polls. Mark Twain attributed to British Prime Minister Bejamin Disraeli the famous quip about three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics. There are perhaps no more manipulated data than polls. Notice the difference between polls designed to shape public opinion versus those that reflect public opinion.

Remember that even the most sophisticated polls got the 2016 election wrong, and several were very far off from the actual results in 2020. Just before the election, Reuters Ipsos claimed that Biden led by 10 points among likely voters. In the election, the difference was only about 4 points. That’s a 6-point difference — which is twice the margin of error of most polls. It’s not just outside the margin, it’s double.

It is very easy to shift a poll with the population sampled and how questions are phrased, just to name a couple of factors. Not to pick on Reuters gratuitously, because there are many offenders, but take another recent Reuters Ipsos poll.

In response to Disney’s controversy in Florida, it found that most Americans do not support “punishing” companies for their political views, a reference to Florida attempting to eliminate Disney’s special governance district status. That was the headline in nearly all of the coverage. Notice the charged word chosen — “punishing.” One might query whether a company should have a self-governing status independent from its state and local government to begin with, rather than support or oppose “punishing” a company.

One might also focus on another portion of the same poll, which found that most Americans support Florida’s law removing sexual orientation and gender identity from early childhood education. But that’s not where the advocates and media went — they framed an issue in a way that would protect the liberal agenda. Be wary of this sort of sleight of hand because it does not reflect actual public opinion — it is designed to shape public opinion.

As surely most parents would agree, discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity with 5-year-olds is not even close to appropriate. Trust that instinct. Trust the instincts of your consumers over the vocal minority and sham polling data.

If, as the saying goes, the customer is always right, surely your whiny employees must be wrong sometimes. To attach another famous quip to this notion, as Michael Jordan once famously said, “Republicans buy sneakers too,” so perhaps consider that your audience may not agree with your woke employees, even if they are not quite as vocal.

4. Be Kind and Support Families

This point also dovetails with the previous one. Do you know what Americans love more than companies pretending to be virtuous? Their families. They love their children and want to protect them. They want to see their families reflected in popular culture.

Major League Baseball is an institution for parents to bring their children out to the ballgame. It is not a social justice warrior organization, nor should it be. Its decision to remove the All-Star game from Atlanta for political purposes tainted the game and angered at least half the fans. It injected divisive racial huckster politics into a family atmosphere, and it was incredibly harmful.

With regard to Disney, its new-found desire to placate a radical left political movement has likewise tainted a family-friendly brand and angered many in its core audience: families. According to Gallup, less than 1 percent of American adults are married LGTBQ people. While of course they are deserving of rights, representation, kindness, and love, portraying same-sex families as appearing literally everywhere simply does not speak to most families, and it is not reflective of reality.

Perhaps more importantly, families do not take their children to Disney World to engage in political debate. They take them there to have fun. Disney should support that goal.

Be kind. Be tolerant. Be inclusive. Do not browbeat or preach about inclusiveness and tolerance.

5. Support America

Americans love America. There is a reason every touring artist goes to a city and does the typical “Hello Cleveland” routine, and everyone cheers. People want to be proud of where they are from. They do not hate where they are from.

The 1619 Project, BLM, and purveyors of critical race theory perpetuate a view that America is rotten to its core. It is not only false, but it is also contrary to what patriotic Americans believe. They don’t take kindly to such aspersions cast on their country, which has served as a beacon and defender of freedom for generations. Be patriotic, and patriots will respond to you favorably.

Follow these guidelines, and you will not only be stronger and happier, but you will also be more likely to avoid becoming the next Disney.

Videos: Chicago Private School Teaches Elementary Schoolers To Support Race-Based Government Payouts

Videos: Chicago Private School Teaches Elementary Schoolers To Support Race-Based Government Payouts

A leaked video from a presentation called “Growing Young Voices: Understanding Black Lives Matter for Teachers” shows that fifth graders at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools performed a politically motivated slam poem that reinforced the left-wing lie that American police kill people purely on the basis of their skin color.

A recording of the fifth graders giving the poem was presented by Michelle Holmes and Carl Farrington, teachers at the Lab School. The poem, ostensibly titled “Gone,” referenced various instances in which African American people had died in confrontations with the police and others, characterizing the deaths as consequences of living in a white supremacist system. 

The students referenced Trayvon Martin, who was fatally shot after a violent confrontation with George Zimmerman. Even the Obama administration’s Department of Justice “found insufficient evidence to pursue federal criminal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman.”

The poem used these deaths to argue that “these people only got shot because of the color of their skin.” In the video below, the two teachers explain their teaching and show clips of their students. The names and faces of the children involved have been obscured to protect their privacy.

Holmes goes on to explain how she uses her role as a teacher to prime students to accept far-left beliefs on racially based reparations. She explains that she wants her young students to hear the language of reparation so that they’ll be ready for Carl Farrington’s class, which features debates on “why we need reparations for slavery.”

Holmes also explains that she teaches her students to withhold forgiveness for racial sins, ensuring the continuation of racial separatism and hatred.

Holmes also discussed the “unapologetically black” portion of their curriculum, which she said “scares white teachers the most.” She continued, saying that even though white teachers might be afraid of this portion, they “live unapologetically white, that’s what your life existence is.”

In the video below, Holmes also explains that being “unapologetically black” means showing up to work not ready to serve students: “It means that Carl walks in with a do-rag in the morning because it’s the morning, honey, and I’m not ready for you.”

Their overt desire to indoctrinate young students and turn them into vehicles for extreme political action is made all the more apparent by the presentation’s inclusion of a quote from the founder of the Black Panther Party. It reads, “The revolution has always been in the hands of the young. The young always inherit the revolution.”

An article in Legal Insurrection from Paul Rossi pointed out the coordinated nature of curriculum such as this, contending that leftwing agitators in education are “sequencing content across grades in a sophisticated manner, in order to turn children into social justice warriors.”

This trend is present in both government and private schools, as they attempt to not just indoctrinate children, but to intentionally turn them into activists and even co-conspirators.

The University of Chicago Lab School did not respond to a request for comment.

Jussie Smollett Sentencing: Black Lives Matter Writes Letter Asking for Leniency

Jussie Smollett Sentencing: Black Lives Matter Writes Letter Asking for Leniency

The Marxist political organization Black Lives Matter wrote a letter on behalf of hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett, asking Cook County Judge James Linn for leniency when sentencing the disgraced actor on Thursday.

“Black Lives Matter stands in strong support of an alternative-to-incarceration sentence for Jussie Smollett,” read the letter, submitted by the organization and attributed to Melina Abdullah, the organization’s Grassroots Director.

Watch Below:

Abdullah (pictured, left), a rabid defund the police activist and Professor of Pan-African Studies for California State University, has previously expressed her support for Smollett, referring to the trial as a “white supremacist charade” in December 2021.

The BLM leader is not the only one asking the judge for leniency in Smollett’s hate crime hoax case.

Hollywood actor Samuel L. Jackson and his wife LaTanya Richardson Jackson have also written a letter on behalf of the actor, asking Judge Linn Linn for leniency.

“It is with the respect of knowing this, that I humbly implore you to please find an alternative to incarceration for Jussie Smollett,” the Jacksons wrote in their letter.

Smollett is set to be sentenced in a Chicago court on Thursday, three months after he was found guilty of five counts of felony disorderly conduct for filing a false police report after he hired two brothers from Nigeria to stage the fake hate crime.

The actor had claimed he was physically attacked by two men wearing MAGA hats who put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him, and shouted racial and homophobic slurs at him, before eventually yelling, “This is MAGA country!” — referring to former President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan.

On Thursday, Smollett arrived late to his own sentencing, with his bodyguards getting physically “violent” with reporters on their way into the courthouse, and knocking one photographer to the ground.

Will The Money Raised For Black Lives Matter Actually Go To Black Lives?

Will The Money Raised For Black Lives Matter Actually Go To Black Lives?

Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, stepped down from the group in May last year after a series of financial scandals provoked her resignation. Now more than eight months later and upwards of $60 million raised, the global charity remains plagued with money controversies and no apparent leadership or oversight.

According to a Washington Examiner investigation published last week, the address listed on the organization’s tax forms is wrong, and its two remaining board members refused to say who was managing its $60 million bankroll.

Meanwhile, Cullors’ supposed replacements ended up replacing nobody.

“BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors appointed two activists to serve as the group’s senior directors following her resignation in May amid scrutiny over her personal finances,” wrote the Examiner’s Andrew Kerr. “But both quietly announced in September that they never took the jobs due to disagreements with BLM. They told the Washington Examiner they don’t know who now leads the nation’s most influential social justice organization.”

Where the pile of money will be spent remains unknown. The group’s bylaws dictate that the executive director “shall have charge of all funds and securities of the Corporation.”

Shalomyah Bowers, who remains listed as the group’s deputy executive director, did not respond to The Federalist’s inquiries, and neither did the foundation.

[LISTEN: Did BLM Dupe Corporate America Out Of Millions?]

Meanwhile, black business owners are being crushed by draconian vaccine mandates protested by activists.

In Boston, the Massachusetts Restaurant Association wrote to the city’s leftist mayor last week complaining that City Hall’s vaccine requirement for dining is costing its businesses up to $15,000 a week. The soon-to-be six-figure losses are steep sums for an industry already operating on slim profit margins after routine lockdowns nearly took them out of business altogether.

The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation operates a “Survival Fund” to step in where the government falls short.

BLMGNF and BLM Grassroots designed the BLM Survival Fund to support Black people and their families facing economic hardship during the pandemic by giving them cash as a means of support to keep them in their homes, keep food on the table, and ultimately provide a little breathing room in their lives.

But without functioning oversight or leadership and with a 990 tax form outside of public view, according to the Washington Examiner, it’s unclear how much money will actually find its way into the hands of the people BLM claims to support. In July of last year, the group provided the “bulk of funding” for a more than $8 million cash purchase of a Toronto mansion, raising more frustration among followers over its finances.

California regulators warned on Monday that they would hold BLM’s leaders personally liable unless the group filed the required documents to maintain an adequate level of transparency.

BLM ‘School Week of Action’ teaching children to ‘choose their own gender’ and ‘disrupt nuclear family’

Schools across the country are participating in this week’s national “Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action.” It’s an activist-driven curriculum from the group where children as young as kindergarten are learning things such as “everybody gets to choose their own gender.”

Additional lessons will include disrupting “Western nuclear family dynamics.” The week kicked off Monday and encompasses 13 “Black Lives Matter Guiding Principles” but designed for elementary and middle-school kids.

National Review reports the “principles include a commitment to restorative justice, being transgender affirming and queer affirming, creating space for black families that is ‘free from patriarchal practices,’ and ‘the disruption of Western nuclear family dynamics and a return to the ‘collective village’ that takes care of each other.”

The Black Lives Matter at School website has a “Starter kit” which explains that In addition to 13 principle are four demands: end zero-tolerance discipline policies; mandate black history and ethnic studies; hire more black teachers; and fund counselors, not cops.

One of the participating schools is Centennial Elementary in Denver, Colorado where the lessons will be taught to kindergarteners and first-graders. The school previously made headlines in December after they announced plans for a racially segregated “families of color playground night.”

Included in the starter kit to be used for lessons are writings by Lelana Garcia, author of a children’s book about BLM principles. Some of her teachings are:

When “discussing big ideas with little people” it is necessary to “consider age-appropriate language so that our students or children can grasp the concepts.” For example, she suggests not talking about police violence with “our youngest children.”

When discussing BLM’s principle of being transgender affirming, Garcia offers the following kid-friendly language: “Everybody has the right to choose their own gender by listening to their own heart and mind. Everyone gets to choose if they are a girl or a boy or both or neither or something else, and no one else gets to choose for them.”

When discussing the BLM principle of a “Black Village,” which includes the goal of disrupting the Western nuclear family structure, Garcia suggests teaching kids that “there are lots of different kinds of families; what makes a family is that it’s people who take care of each other; those people might be related, or maybe they choose to be a family together and to take care of each other. Sometimes, when it’s a lot of families together, it can be called a village.”
