American Corporations Have Given a Staggering $83 Billion to BLM and Related Groups
“a historic transfer of wealth to racial and leftwing causes”
Where did all of this money go? It certainly hasn’t been spent improving black neighborhoods in cities like Baltimore.

Black Lives Matter Activists Executed A Shocking $83 Billion Shakedown Of American Corporations
The Black Lives Matter (BLM) riots of 2020 were the largest and most successful shakedown in American history. These “mostly peaceful protests” — which burned more than 200 American cities and wreaked more than $2 billion in damages — achieved more than anyone could have predicted: changes in laws, private sector policies, and perhaps most importantly, a historic transfer of wealth to racial and leftwing causes. As a result, American corporations gave or pledged more than $83 billion to either BLM or BLM-related causes.
We created a database tracking contributions and pledges made to the BLM movement and related causes, which we define as organizations and initiatives that advance one or more aspects of BLM’s agenda, and which were made in the wake of the BLM riots of 2020. To date, our data spans more than 400 companies and $83 billion in pledges and contributions.
The famed consulting firm McKinsey and Company thinks the number is far larger. They calculated that from May 2020 to October 2022 companies pledged about $340 billion “to racial equity, specifically for Black Americans after the murder of George Floyd in May 2020.” Our number is conservative by comparison. But unlike McKinsey, we provide details about the pledges and contributions of specific companies.
We are surprised at some of the incredulity in our calculations. So too is BLM, which suggests that objections to wealth transfers of this scale are rooted in “white supremacy,” and “a pathology that Black organizations don’t deserve to be funded.”
BLM called for reparations. In a sense, they succeeded, as these reparations were paid out to BLM itself (approximately $122 million) and to its vast NGO archipelago and other racialized causes and schemes under various names.
While the money was given or pledged in different ways, it was unmistakable for so-called “racial justice.” Sometimes this meant cash transfers to partners of BLM, like the Color of Change, the NAACP, the Equal Justice Initiative, and the ACLU.

How many raises might that money have funded to make a real difference in the lives of ordinary, every-day, black Americans? Not to mention all of their co-workers without regard to race.
Calling San Francisco ….. here is where to get your reparations money.
“…more than 400 companies and $83 billion in pledges and contributions.”
That is an average of over $200 million each. Something looks off with the numbers.
Protection money to the thugs also buys protection from The Apparatus.
Apparently, not all Cxx are entirely stupid. They got a two-fer with that money.
