‘Corruption knows no color. It can be carried out by people of any hue, either gender, or any political affiliation’

WASHINGTON D.C. — What began as a social media hashtag in 2013 has now become a rallying cry heard round the world. The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) was formed after the tragic shooting of Black teenager Treyvon Martin but has grown into one of the loudest voices about “racial injustice.” Mainstream media swooned. Churches centered the propaganda instead of Scripture. Corporate America groveled at their feet. Seven years and nearly $200 million dollars later, the world has been conned — according to Ryan Bomberger, chief creative officer and co-founder of The Radiance Foundation (Radiance, www.radiance.life).
“The concept of race has always been a destructive construct, but so is the weaponization of race for a personal or political agenda, such as the Black Lives Matter movement,” Bomberger stated. “The Black Lives Matter movement isn’t about self-sacrifice. It’s about sacrificing the truth for personal gain. And a lot of it. Just ask Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF) co-founder Patrice Cullors, a self-proclaimed ‘trained Marxist,’ about her not-so-secret love of capitalism. Mostly white corporate CEOs lavished her Black-led organization with loads of white guilt in the form of a color hucksters love: green. Who knew that BLM actually stood for ‘Buy Large Mansions’ or ‘Become Loaded Marxists.’ Cullors owns a reported four homes worth over $3 million. Her house-buying ‘binge’ started in 2016.”
Bomberger continued, “Now, there’s a lawsuit accusing yet another BLMGNF leader — Shalomyah Bowers — of stealing $10 million from the organization. The Black Lives Matter Grassroots coalition filed the lawsuit against the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (the one with all the money). There are only three Board members of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, an organization that received $90 million in donations in 2020 and another $77 million in 2021. Three! And one of them is Shalomyah Bowers. According to the lawsuit, he only made ‘$2,167,894 million dollars from BLMGNF in less than eight months.’ What’s a trained Marxist to do when your shady organization is awash in cash?
“Who’s to blame? White people, of course. The three-member Board fired back at the lawsuit, brought on by other Black BLM activists, with this classic response: ‘To the contrary, they would rather take the same steps of our white oppressors and utilize the criminal legal system which is propped up by white supremacy (the same system they say they want to dismantle) to solve movement disputes.’
“Black lies matter. In fact, all lies matter. You’re not being oppressed, BLM. You’re being held accountable.”
Bomberger continued, “I don’t care what beautiful hue of skin you have. If you’re a crook who steals donated money, you should be in jail. How many times do we have to hear the pathetic and racist justifications of BLM leaders? I run a non-profit organization. I’m brown. I don’t complain about the same IRS laws that apply to every non-profit organization. To say that Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation is corrupt is an understatement. Good luck trying to follow the trails of cash. Even BLM chapters can’t get any transparency. Some of them have been calling for it for years.
“Corruption knows no color. It can be carried out by people of any hue, either gender, or any political affiliation.”
Bomberger concluded, “We must defy the destructive narratives spewed by a reckless and irresponsible media establishment that regurgitates a Black nationalist, disturbingly Marxist worldview in the guise of a new civil rights movement. Let’s move beyond a hashtag that has been used to bludgeon and use words that speak life and affirm our equal and irreplaceable worth as human beings who happen to be beautifully adorned with different pigmentation.”
