The Black Lives Matter movement isn’t quite the grassroots, impoverished group of people that the media would have you believe.
Instead, the group has been pledged millions of dollars by liberal organizations and business that agree with the attention-seeking mission of Black Lives Matter.
One such business that has contributed to this funding was the Ford Foundation that, in conjunction with the Borealis Philanthropy, recently announced the Black-Led Movement Fund — a six-year pooled donor campaign aimed at raising $100 million for the Movement for Black Lives coalition.
“The BLMF provides grants, movement building resources, and technical assistance to organizations working advance the leadership and vision of young, Black, queer, feminists and immigrant leaders who are shaping and leading a national conversation about criminalization, policing and race in America,” the Borealis announcement explained.
Never mind the fact that the Movement for Black Lives has adopted an agenda that attacked police departments, called for race-based reparations, demanded voting rights for illegal immigrants, supported free college education for blacks and proposed raising the minimum wage.
I guess all of those problematic demands don’t matter as long as the group is talking about how police officers “hate” and “target” black people.
What’s scary is the amount of influence progressive groups can have with the backing of top donors, such as the Ford Foundation, the fifth-largest U.S. philanthropy, with $12.4 billion in assets.
