does the money donated to blm matter?

i’m sure many of us have used the hashtag #blm in our social media lives.
whenever a black person is harmed by the police,
we post it in solidarity.

All (gay, straight, trans) black lives matter.

according to wiki,
blm” is:

Black Lives Matter is a decentralized political and social movement advocating for non-violent civil disobedience in protest against incidents of police brutality and all racially motivated violence against black people.

i saw the following tweet and it left me with a question…

Where is this money going?

can a foxholer shed some light on this?
are they donating it to bailing out protestors?

helping the families of those who have been killed?
like,
do they have an office and this is paying the rent?
what?
i’m not gonna hold you,
but it kinda looks suspect af.

  1. To politicians against your “favorite” president. Profiting off of people’s emotions to their avantage and fulfill their agendas.
    It’s gonna be a Cold Winter.

  2. There was a big debate on BLM UK and the money donated to it with lack of transparency when it came to the fund and the heads of BLM being very shady

  3. This reminds me of people who were selling Twin Towers merchandise after the 9/11 attacks. Very tacky and profiting off of misery. WHY do we need to donate to legal funds of Black people incarcerated or for lawyers to get them justice when this exists? Shouldn’t they be bailing out Black people who are on the verge of eviction?

    Black Lives Matters but the fact that we don’t see this being used directly for the community is such a SCAM! I hate whenever nonprofits uses big words to mask that they pocketed the money. How we need this and that..and it’s all smoke and mirrors.

  4. I’ve donated to a number of bail funds to get protesters out of jail. Those do work. They’re BLM-related. I also donated to BLM-related voter registration drives. The 2020 election shows that in some cases (Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, etc.) they worked. Since BLM is decentralized I guess you have to look at the various organizations, which have to account for what they’re doing with the money they collect.

"off topic", trolling, and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
