Breonna Taylor, Michael Brown Families Ask Black Lives Matter Where Money Went
Families of victims demand BLM explains where all the cash donations have gone
The families of Breonna Taylor and Michael Brown - two victims used as a vehicle to push the Black Lives Matter agenda - are demanding that the far-left group explains where the tens of millions of dollars BLM received in donations has gone.
Last week, the mother of Breonna Taylor, Tamika Palmer, slammed BLM and the radical group's Democrat allies, branding them a "fraud."
26-year-old Breonna Taylor was killed during a botched police drug raid last year and her death sparked a series of BLM-led protests across the country.
However, the organization refuses to open its books, despite ongoing calls for transparency.
Those concerns about BLM's finances are now also being amplified by other figures within the movement.
Earlier this month, when the New York Post reported Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors had bought four homes during a $3.2M property "buying spree" since 2016, NYC area Black Lives Matter leader Hawk Newsome called for “an independent investigation.”
Black Lives Matter's global organization responded to the scandal by claiming that reports exposing Cullors' lavish lifestyle are "racist."
The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF) released a statement blasting such reporting is "false and dangerous" and being "amplified by the right-wing media."
According to BLMGNF, reports about Cullors' profiteering "continue a tradition of terror by white supremacists."
Khan-Cullors also defended her real estate purchases last week as part of her effort to support her family and claimed her wealth was not due to the organization itself.
“I have never personally dealt with BLM Louisville, and personally have found them to be fraud,” Tamika Palmer wrote on Facebook.
Last month, the father of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old shot and killed by police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, asked Black Lives Matter a simple question: “Where is all that money going?”
A review of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation’s financial documents found the group raised nearly $100 million in 2020, of which less than $40 million was spent in the last year.
Khan-Cullors said last week that the organization is not a “charity,” and that people in the community with financial needs should pressure the government for reparations for slavery.
