Gotta love it.

The local BLM chapters are ratting out the national chapter.

While the local BLM folks are the ones who are generating a lot of the direct actions on the streets, they’re claiming that the national organization, Black Lives Matter Global Network, which has taken in millions, not only has given them little or none of it, but that the national organization also isn’t being transparent about where the money is going. So where is it going? They want answers.

Ten local chapters including Washington, D.C., Chicago and Philadelphia, released a statement saying there wasn’t acceptable financial transparency since 2013.

From Daily Caller:

“For years there has been inquiry regarding the financial operations of BLMGN and no acceptable process of either public or internal transparency about the unknown millions of dollars donated to BLMGN, which has certainly increased during this time of pandemic and rebellion,” the chapters said.

They asked people to donate to their local chapters directly.

The local chapters also said they had been locked out of the decision making and political policy making of the group, something which is supposed to go against their “collective” coda. They also objected to Patrisse Cullors being named the executive director and the only board member for BLMGN.

They want a piece of the pie.

The Daily Caller took a look into the national organization’s finances for two years from July 2017 to June 2019 and found out that while they spent $4.5 million on consultants, travel and compensation for staff, only $328,000 when to the people like the local chapters.

BLMGN Managing Director Kailee Scales claimed to the DCNF that they gave the chapters in kind support in fundraising and programmatic assistance.

Can we say we could have told them this would happen? This is once again a perfect example of what happens in a real socialist or communist collective? The actual ‘workers’ are run over and the “elite” or the leaders have control of all the money and the power. Maybe the kids in the street would learn something from this experience?
