Black Lives Matter Gets the Boot From Major Charity Platform

Black Lives Matter (BLM) has been removed from Amazon’s charity platform AmazonSmile.

Background: Last year, Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors announced her departure from the organization and since then it’s been unclear who is in charge of the organization and its millions.

Recently, BLM’s finances have been called into question after failing to report what it did with millions of dollars raised during the second half of 2020.

In early February, BLM shut down its online fundraising after two states issued legal threats to the group for its failure to report its finances.

BLM remains out of compliance in California and Washington, as well as in New Jersey, North Carolina, Connecticut, Colorado, Maryland, Maine, and Virginia.

BLM recently retained the services of the law firm owned by prominent Democratic lawyer Marc Elias, who is best known for his funding of the discredited anti-Trump Steele dossier while he served as Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign general counsel. BLM also elevated longtime Clinton family confidant Minyon Moore to its board of directors, according to the filings. (per The Washington Examiner)

What Happened: AmazonSmile removed BLM from its platform on Tuesday.

Why It Matters: In the past, Amazon donated $10 million to BLM and 11 other social justice groups amid the nationwide unrest spurred by George Floyd’s killing.

Amazon has been a major revenue source for BLM and now marks one of the most prominent corporations to break with the social justice organization.

What Amazon Says: “Charitable organizations must meet the requirements outlined in our participation agreement to be eligible for AmazonSmile,” an Amazon representative told the Washington Examiner. “Among other eligibility requirements, organizations are required to be in good standing in their state of incorporation and in the states and territories where they are authorized to do business. Organizations that don’t meet the requirements listed in the agreement may have its eligibility suspended or revoked. Charities can request to be reinstated once they are back in good standing.”

  1. If I would have known that Amazon was a financial backer for BLM I wouldn’t have bought a dimes worth of stuff from Amazon

  2. The BLM was also financed thru “Actblue”, the financial arm of the democratic party. We all know what happened. By utilizing members of black lives matter, to stuff ballot boxes with “harvested” ballots. Now, the democratic party got what they wanted, they have ditched the BLM, to fend for themselves.
    Its easy to utilize angry, disenfranchised, minorities. All you have to do, is create an “us vs them” scenario, dig up long dead bones of hate, and pay the media to give them
    Life. Presto! Instant division.
    How does this work?
    Simple people, will believe anything that comes thru a TV.
    Now, ALL of us are living in hell.
    Created by the hateful left

  3. At all cost I have refused to deal with Amazon for their support of this terrorist group as well as Starbucks for their disrespect of law enforcement and Niki for their business ties with China

    1. I’ve done the same with WokaCola, since its infamous email, telling white employees to be “less white”. Woke, racist hypocrites.

  4. Great news, and long time coming. Why does anybody want to fund intolerant, hateful, divisive, hypocrite, racist Marxists, with or without the clear corruption evident in the sudden wealth of its property buying leaders?
