How About We Make Black Lives Better?

Liberal foundations donate to BLM to fundamentally transform America.

Black Lives Matter is becoming increasingly funded by far-left organizations. The Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy announced that they have formed the Black-Led Movement Fund, which aims to raise $100 million for BLM over the next six years. Add to this amount the already donated $33 million from George Soros and BLM is really starting to rake in the cash. It seems that racist victimhood really sells.

But as has been documented, the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement was based on a lie. A lie that has been perpetuated and used to organize protests, rioting and looting, as well as provide “justification” for the murders of police officers all in the name of racial justice. Ignoring the riots and racial discord BLM has provoked, Borealis Philanthropy says it is working with “young, Black, queer, feminists and immigrant leaders who are shaping and leading a national conversation about criminalization, policing and race in America.” It’s fine to have a “conversation” and debate the problems, real or perceived, within the inner city, but this is not what BLM does, as their radical socialist demands illustrate. There is no back and forth discussion, there are only obnoxious, offensive and unconstitutional demands made in the name of concern for the plight of black Americans — a plight, by the way, that exists because of Democrats.

Why not put this $100 million into actually helping black Americans? Rather than paying for hashtags, rioting and murder, grant funding for private programs that aim to help educate and encourage development of skills to better engage in the American entrepreneurial spirit. The problem is BLM has seized tremendous influence within the Democrat Party, which allows them a greater platform to more effectively promulgate their racist ideals, further polarizing America.
