Liberals like to make the distinction between Black Lives Matter “The Movement” and Black Lives Matter “The Organization” because of the organization’s ties to communism and radical socialism. Now, that very organization is plagued by infighting that threatens to destroy the controversial group from within. 

According to reporting by The New York Post, disaffected members of the original 10 Black Lives Matter chapters are demanding more accountability and transparency from the BLM Global Network (BLMGN) in the wake of revelations about co-founder Patrisse Cullors’ lavish spending.

Cullors announced she would resign from her post as executive director of the organization in late May, amid controversy over the group’s finances. She’s been in the spotlight for lavish spending on real estate, as revealed by The Post, including a $1.4 million LA home she encircled with a $35,000 electric fence.

BLM10Plus, comprised of the original 10 Black Lives Matter chapters and some of BLM’s newer chapters, repeated calls last week for the BLM Global Network’s leadership to open the books be more transparent about the structure of the sprawling organization.

In a statement issued on June 11, BLM10Plus said that the public should know about how many chapters there are, how the various legal entities under the Global Network are related to each other, the salaries of staff members, and the founders, deals with contractors and more.

“The little we do know has come from persistent requests for transparency over the years,” said the statement, which is titled, “Tell No Lies.” It described tangled negotiations involving where official chapters were located and which ones got funding.

“The most alarming use of official and unofficial chapters was BLMGN’s willingness to position a chapter as unofficial if the chapter did not align with their personal political interest,” it continued. “Chapters were often referred to as official in cities BLMGN was seeking to court prominent individuals and high visibility opportunities.”

Meanwhile, a large number of groups seeking to affiliate went ignored, BLM10Plus said.

The problems have led to family members of several victims, including Michael Brown Sr., Samaria Rice, and Lisa Simpson, leaving Black Lives Matter and publicly criticizing the group.

The dissident members said that “engagement with BLMGN was always problematic and unsupportive,” and, “We never knew who made decisions or how decision-making processes were determined. Chapters had different levels of access to information based on their proximity to BLMGN leadership.”

“The issues we’ve highlighted within the Black Lives Matter movement are not unique to this group or to people of color,” the statement continues. “Grassroots movements have been co-opted across the globe, and it is our intention to be a part of the collective creating processes based on integrity so that we, nor any other activist or advocate, encounters these avoidable issues in the future.”

  1. Anyone involved with BLM is a terrorists and should be put to death or deported to Africa or Kenya to be with their village idiot

  2. Hopefully! As a terrorist organization, their demise is long overdue. They have done nothing for blacks except encourage them to riot and discontent.

  3. How ironic! The same “organization” whose motto is ‘Tell No Lies’, has done nothing but lie, from that stupid punk Michael Brown, all the way to the drug-addled thug George Floyd!! They remind me of Uncle Joe Stal….er, Bite-me! Lie to yourself & everyone else long enough, & you start believing the lies as truth. This is as Bizarro-World as it gets! hahahaha

  4. I am deeply convinced that BLM is a terrorist organization responsible for the murder of thousands of people, hundreds of police officers, for the ruin of hundreds of businesses, for the bombings and arson of houses and businesses, for provocations against peaceful demonstrations, including those near the Capitol building. This terrorist organization must be disbanded immediately.

    1. That would be interesting and how did we ever get along without them before someone thought of starting them in the beginning and even think of supporting them !

  5. It would be interesting to find out how much of the money BLM received came from Democrats and/or the Democratic Party.

  6. Hope not the end because they have only STARTED their violence and eventually the black population will be one thousand years in the past and will take two thousand years to be where they were two years ago. Never to be trusted again.
