Black Lives Matter Just Got EXPOSED On All Levels?!?!

Black Lives Matter paid the co-founder’s baby daddy almost five times the amount the group doled out to the Trayvon Martin Foundation — a charity honoring the black youth whose 2012 death spearheaded the movement.

Patrisse Cullors, the former executive director and co-founder of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, paid a company owned by Damon Turner $969,459 for “live production, design and media,” according to the group’s latest filings to the IRS. Turner’s for-profit company, which sells $145 sweatshirts on its web site and solicits donations for “the movement,” received the second highest payout the group made in fiscal year 2020, which covers July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021.

A rapper and artist, Turner is the father of Cullors’ young son, and runs a Los Angeles-based entertainment and clothing company called Trap Heals LLC. Turner has been on the receiving end of Cullors’ largesse in the past. In 2019, his company took in $63,500 from Reform LA Jails, a state political action committee controlled by Cullors, to work for criminal justice reform.

he organization also doled out $840,993 to Cullors Protection LLC, a company owned by Patrisse Cullors’ eldest brother Paul and set up in July 2020, according to California state records. The cash was doled out for “professional security services,” according to the filings. The Post was unable to establish how much security experience, if any, Paul had before setting up his company. Paul is listed as head of the security for Cullors’ personal property and BLMGNF’s $6 million LA headquarters, according to reports. He did not return a request for comment.

The filing “shows huge dollar amounts going to family members and close associates of Cullors, eclipsing money to charities like the Trayvon Martin Foundation,” said Tom Anderson, director of the Government Integrity Project at the National Legal and Policy Center, a Virginia-based watchdog group. “We now know why Patrisse Cullors stepped down.”

Cullors is the only board member listed on the 2020 filing. She resigned from the organization a month after The Post revealed that she went on a $3.2 million real-estate buying spree. Cullors denied that the money used to buy residential properties in Georgia and California came from the charity, and those properties do not show up in the filing.

“The charity had no whistleblower policy, no document destruction and retention policy, and only one board member during the financial reporting period,” said Laurie Styron, executive director of Charity Watch, a non-profit that monitors charities. “It reports having and regularly monitoring and enforcing a written conflict of interest policy, but…one person can’t monitor and enforce a conflict of interest policy over themselves. It’s frightening, isn’t it, to consider that this much taxpayer-subsidized public money was being overseen by only one person?”

Other firms that were among the “highest compensated independent contractors” include Washington, DC-based Dewey Square Group which took in $709, 190 for “communications, IT and digital,” and Los Angeles-based Sadler Strategic Media Inc, which made $696,364 for “media planning and placement,” according to filings. Resistance Labs in Oakland, Calif., provided “tech support” for the group and raked in $504,000, according to filings.

Kailee Scales, a consultant who founded BLMGNF with Cullors and whose name is on the original Delaware registration setting up the group in 2017, was paid $139,625. The payment was a severance package for the calendar year 2020, tax filings show. “The terms and conditions of the arrangement are confidential,” according to the filings.
