These ‘Fortune 500’ Companies Donated to the Marxist Black Lives Matter Foundation

(The Federalist) At least seven “Fortune 500” companies donated funds to the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation despite its Marxist roots and anti-capitalistic views. 

According to Axios, “the 100 largest U.S. companies have so far committed $1.63 billion to organizations fighting racism and inequality.” 

Analysis of social media posts, blogs, and public statements collected, however, shows that Decker’s Uggs, Amazon, Pepsi’s Gatorade, Microsoft, Warner Records, Intel, Bungie of Xbox and Microsoft Games, and Mondelez International’s Nabisco all specifically pledged money to the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation following the death of George Floyd.

According to the Black Lives Matter website, their goal is to promote “Freedom, Liberation and Justice” and “to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.” The movement’s ideological roots however, run deeper than bringing justice to victims of police brutality. 

One of the BLM co-founders, Patrisse Khan-Cullors, explained the foundation of the movement, inspired by her and co-founders Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi, in an interview in 2015.

“We actually do have an ideological frame,” she told The Real News. “Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists.”

One click into the “What We Believe” portion of the BLM website reveals a far broader agenda for the organization. Stated goals include “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.”
