Charity Run by Black Lawmakers Didn’t Give Out a Single Scholarship

Charity Run by Black Lawmakers Didn’t Give Out a Single Scholarship

“all the money simply seems to go to festivities”

This organization, run by black lawmakers in New York, is intended to give scholarships to underprivileged youth. They spent money on food and limos instead.

The Daily Caller reports:

Black Lawmakers’ Charity Didn’t Give Out a Single Scholarship, Top Pols Hide Financials

The caucus of black New York state lawmakers runs a charity whose stated mission is to empower “African American and Latino youth through education and leadership initiatives” by “providing opportunity to higher education” — but it hasn’t given a single scholarship to needy youth in two years, according to a New York Post investigation.

The group collects money from companies like AT&T, the Real Estate Board of New York, Time Warner Cable and CableVision, telling them in promotional materials that they are “changing lives, one scholarship at a time.”

The group — called the Association of Black and Puerto Rican Legislators, Inc. — instead spent $500,000 in the 2015 – 2016 fiscal year on items like food, limousines and rap music, the Post found.

The politicians refused to divulge the charity’s 2017 tax filing to the Post despite federal requirements that charities do so upon request.

Its main activity is holding and selling tickets to an elaborate party each year intended to raise money for its stated mission of providing scholarships for youth. But year after year, essentially all the money simply seems to go to festivities.

Its chairman, Assemblywoman Latrice Walker of Brooklyn, claimed to have no knowledge of the charity’s failure to fulfill its mission. She told the Post through a spokesman that she “does not have any knowledge of the matter.” Walker is running to be the public advocate for New York City, its second-highest elected position and one tasked with investigating complaints.

Well bless their goddamn righeousness and git’down wit’ yo’sef!

Any organization whose mission statement is “to empower “African American and Latino youth through education and leadership initiatives” by “providing opportunity to higher education” should be suspect, as it’s very foundation is cemented in racism. You cannot be pro one race unless you are anti another.

Indeed, any organization formed for the purpose of “helping” a specific race shouldn’t be permitted at all unless ALL races can also form such organizations without fear of condemnation.

But don’t call this fraud. That would be racist.

I may have missed it, but might these politicians be Democrats? Why would I think that?

Well, at least they’re being honest.

“changing lives, one scholarship at a time.”

The number of scholarships granted and the number of lives changed correlate perfectly.

Just more proof that DemonCraps & Blacks in NYC are Corrupt, Immoral and there to Enrich themselves. Keep voting for them and putting them in power over you , you Fools !!

I am sure that Congress will investigate. Right? Right?

    While Congress may have investigated this when the Establishment Republicrats under Lyin Paul Ryan was Speaker, you can bet that the only matters to be investigated under Dementia Nancy will ONLY relate to the election of Donald Trump. Their mission now will be to Impeach Mr. Trump for anything even if they have to go back to the days when he wore a diaper and soiled it as an infant.

    Besides, the past several years of endless investigations, testimony under oath that would have had we peons already serving a jail sentence and except for the great fun of watching scum like James Comey, Peter Strzok, and Jonathan Gruber (https://legalinsurrection.com/2014/11/jonathan-gruber-and-the-stupid-americans/) made to look like the duplicitous and unethical slime that they are, not one ever sustained indictment, prosecution, or punishment. That’s especially prominent when you have an Eunuch Attorney General like Jeff Sessionzzzzzzz

    What’s it got to do with Congress? How would it be Congress’s business to investigate? Tish James, maybe, but don’t count on it.
