In what started as a social media hashtag, the Black Lives Matter movement has blossomed into an amazingly large organization with corporate offices in New York City, high-powered lawyers defending civil rights in courts around the country, and a string of legislative victories in states and Congress.
Just kidding. Almost none of that is true – with the exception of the fact that BLM did stem from a hashtag following the acquittal of neighborhood watch volunteer and “white Hispanic” George Zimmerman in 2013, who shot and killed Trayvon Martin during a struggle the previous year.
There are no BLM corporate offices, as far as anyone can tell. There are no high-priced legal times fighting perceived racial and civil rights injustices in courts around the country. There is no lobbying wing and no known political action infrastructure.
But there is a website for the organization. And it has a donation button on the page – one that goes to ActBlue, a fundraising platform used to channel money to Left-wing candidates and extremist Democrats.

Black Lives Matter Foundation, Inc is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes. By combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centering Black joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives.
BLM…Inc.? Don’t Leftists hate corporate America?
In any event, when users click on the “DONATE” button on the Black Lives Matter website, they are taken to an ActBlue page.
And what does ActBlue do with all the money it is collecting from Black Lives Matter supporters, most of whom, no doubt, are under the impression that they’re donating to support the legions of lobbyists and lawyers fighting for the cause that the group doesn’t have?
The money is going to candidates and politicians like Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Andrew Yang, Elizabeth Warren, Amy McGrath – all very white, with the exception of Yang, who is an Asian-American.
There actually is a Black Lives Matter nonprofit, Tax EIN 47-4143254, and you can enter that number and search for the organization here.
But what you’ll find is, the last time the organization filed anything with the IRS was in 2017.
And yet, untold millions of dollars continue to flow into, and through, BLM to points unknown, as The Gateway Pundit has pieced together.
Isn’t that strange? No corporate offices. No legal team. No civil rights court battles. No lobbying arm. Just a portal for donations.
Black activist Ashley Yates has herself sounded the warning bell and has told people not to donate money to BLM because it’s a conduit straight to the Democrat Party.
“Again: please stop giving money to BlackLivesMatter Network. By their own admission they have no staff and no infrastructure,” she tweeted June 8, adding that “in six years they’ve not produced a single community program, sponsored a single piece of legislation or financially supported a single chapter.”
Is Black Lives Matter really just another sham front for the Democrat Party machine? Inquiring BLM donors should want to know.
