UPDATE: PLEASE READ MY CORRECTION HERE

When you go to donate on the blacklivesmatter.com website, you're redirected here: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/ms_blm_homepage_2019

I've requested a financial report from the Black Lives Matter organization through ActBlue, so we'll see where that money is being allocated, or if it's literally just going straight to ActBlue and not even being designated to BLM (in which case all of these donations are just going straight to fund the Democratic presidential campaign).

Here's ActBlue's financial report for 2020: https://www.opensecrets.org/pacs/expenditures.php?cycle=2020&cmte=C00401224

Only 98.3 PERCENT of donations are going toward contributions to campaign contributions guys, this is totally going to help black communities.

EDIT I originally typed that 98.3% go to salaries but I meant CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS, kind of an important oopsie lol

Pede this is a great post and I will be sure to share it. I wish I had more than one upvote to give you, but sadly I am not a democrat.

LOL thank you fren. 🙏

I want to do my due diligence and be as sure as I can be that ActBlue isn't legitimately just acting as the payment gateway, but it's really suspicious.

Their ToS is super sketch:

In the event that a campaign or committee (a) fails for 60 days to cash a check from ActBlue which includes your contribution (after ActBlue makes repeated attempts to work with the campaign to ensure all checks are cashed), or (b) affirmatively refuses a contribution earmarked through ActBlue, your contribution will be re-designated as a contribution to ActBlue.

So even if the money is going to "Black Lives Matter", BLM could easily just "affirmatively refuse the contribution" to funnel it right back to ActBlue.

If all they are is a payment gateway, I don't know why BLM wouldn't just use PayPal or Stripe or Auth.net. Why go through ActBlue?

Link? I'm digging around and want to find that exact statement on their site.

Edit: This is what I found which contradicts the above

How do I receive my donations? If you’re a federal candidate, a c4 nonprofit, or a state-level candidate that did not have to set up a merchant account, you’ll receive a check each week containing funds from the previous week. We cut and mail checks every Monday, containing funds through Sunday at midnight.

If you’re a local candidate or state-level candidate that had to set up a merchant account, the money will be deposited directly into your bank account.

EDIT AGAIN:

Okay it's a TOS from the DONATION link - https://secure.actblue.com/donate/ms_blm_homepage_2019

So there's no contradiction, they DO issue the check weekly but if you don't cash it they cancel it and keep the money. Nice scheme.

if you want a tldr

99 percent of BLM donations go to Democrat election campaigns.

That's it. That's all it is. A bait and switch method to fundraise for a morally bankrupt party everyone hates.

Just like Bernie's campaign is a bait and switch to get college dummies to donate to him so he can funnel it into the DNC to dump wherever they please.

Democrats cheat in absolutely everything they do.

It adds a whole new layer to why BLM suddenly appears and starts riots during election years and then immediately disappears after.

They don't exist just to cause mischief and rile up useful idiots into voting for democrats, they actually exist to funnel now BILLIONS of dollars into the DNC.
