Black Lives Matter Received $82 Million From Corporations
Black Lives Matter and related causes have apparently received an alarming $82.9 billion from corporations, according to research from the Claremont Institute.
In the Claremont Institute’s Center for the American Way of Life, a report was published using a funding database that highlighted the obscene levels of funding that BLM received. The Center proclaimed the BLM movement went beyond “rioting and destruction.”
The Center detailed how “The BLM pressure campaigns, harassment, and moral blackmail also amounted to possibly the most lucrative shakedown of corporate America in its history.”
“As a point of reference, $82.9 billion is more than the GDP of 46 African countries. In 2022, the Ford Motor Company’s profits were $23 billion,” the Center explained. The $82.9 billion total includes “more than $123 million to the BLM parent organizations directly,” in addition to larger sums doled out to other organizations in favor of BLM’s agenda.
This database revealed how prominent corporations across a broad spectrum of industries doled out fad wads of cash. For example, Walmart donated $100 million to BLM and similar movements centered on “racial equity.” For its part, Amazon donated $169.5 million.
Similarly, the pharmaceutical company Abbvie doled out over $62 million to the BLM movement. Allstate wrote a check of $7.7 million to the movement while American Express donated $50 million. Apple donated $100 million, with AT&T also donating $21.5 million. Nike provided an additional $90 million to the movement.
Delta Airlines, JetBlue, Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines donated to BLM and similar causes as well.
Bank of America and Wells Fargo donated $18.25 and $210 million respectively to BLM and similar causes.
Asset management kingpin BlackRock donated a whopping $810 million to BLM and similar anti-white causes. Financial giants such as Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs donated $30 million and $10.1 million, respectively.
Companies connected to the American military industrial complex such as Boeing, Northrop Grumman, and Raytheon gave $15.6 million, $2 million, and $25 million.
All in all, corporate America is in the tank for anti-white causes. The Right must start using prudential state power to rein in corporations that contribute to causes that undermine the Historic American Nation. Moreover, right-wingers who are not in politics should do everything possible to move up the ranks of corporate America and retake the boardroom from woke leftists. Additionally, entrepreneurially-minded figures on the Right should build companies that work to disrupt sectors that have been captured by wokism.
Corporate America desperately needs a face lift. If it doesn’t change its ways, we could be in for a protracted period of economic decline.
