BLM co-founder used charity money
Patrisse Cullors, one of BLM’s “trained Marxist” co-founders, used the charity’s funds to enrich her friends and family, according to recent tax filings.

This particular founding member of the Black Lives Matter movement has really managed to make a name for herself… although she’s probably not so thrilled that it’s “grifter.”

In 2020, Black Lives Matter raised $90 million, and it’s unclear how that money was spent. There was a lot of criticism by local BLM chapters that the national organization wasn’t providing them with funding.

It has been unclear who is responsible for the funds after Cullors stepped down from her position at the charity a year ago.

We now have a better look at where that money went, and it didn’t go to local chapters.

According to tax filings, hundreds of thousands were siphoned out to friends and family of co-founder and clandestine real-estate investor Patrisse Cullors.

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors used charity funds to pay her brother and child’s father eye-watering sums of cash for various services, according to tax documents filed with the IRS.

The co-founder’s brother, Paul Cullors, saw a cool sum of $840,000 hit his bank account for allegedly providing security services to the nonprofit organization, tax documents seen by The Post show.

Meanwhile, the organization paid a company owned by Damon Turner, with whom Cullors shares a child, almost $970,000 to help “produce live events” as well as other “creative services.”

On top of the controversy, BLM wrapped up its fiscal year — which runs from July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2021 — with a stunning $42 million in net assets.

The foundation had an operating budget of about $4 million, according to a board member.

Previously, Cullors admitted that her sister, mother, and brother were all employed with the organization.

But it appears it wasn’t just family and friends of Cullors that were benefiting from the tens of millions raised.

A consulting firm run by Shalomyah Bowers, who is BLM’s board secretary and has previously served as deputy executive director, was paid more than $2.1 million for providing the organization with operational support, including staffing, fundraising and other key services.

According to the Form 990 document required by all 501(c)(3) organizations to maintain their charity status, nearly $37 million was spent by the foundation on grants, real estate, and charter on private flights, and another $32 million was invested in stocks. Organizers say that the stock portfolio is expected to become an endowment to ensure the foundation’s work continues in the future.

In short, BLM is still worth tens of millions and isn’t going away anytime soon.

Since the horrific Buffalo killing spree, the organization has been quite active on Twitter. They’re explicitly calling this “right-wing violence” — even though in the “manifesto” the shooter wrote, he identifies himself more with the left than with the right.

But you can’t let the facts get in the way of a successful grift, right?
