On Tuesday, the Claremont Institute unveiled a new database for the sole purpose of tracking corporate donations to the far-left black nationalist group Black Lives Matter, as well as donations to similar organizations.
As reported by Just The News, Claremont’s Center for the American Way of Life announced that its new “online dashboard” would “track corporate contributions and pledges to the BLM movement and related causes.” Users can search the database by inputting such search criteria as donor, donor location, and recipient.
“BLM and its manifold extensions engineered one of the most successful grifts in American history, to the tune of $82.9 billion,” the group revealed.
The athletic gear company Adidas topped the list, with donations of $120 million to various far-left groups that prioritize the interests of African-Americans and Hispanics. Another donor is 343 Industries, the video game company behind the iconic Halo franchise, which gave $600,000 to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.
All totaled, the Center for the American Way of Life says it has identified over $80 billion in donations to Black Lives Matter and similarly radical groups.
Although American corporations have been left-leaning for many years, the entirety of corporate America almost unanimously began voicing its support for Black Lives Matter in mid-2020, shortly after an African-American named George Floyd died of a fentanyl overdose while in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Falsely believing he was murdered by the police officers who arrested him, black nationalist and anarcho-Communist rioters began burning down cities across the country, with many corporations signaling their support for the rioters. Many companies announced initiatives to artificially boost the racial diversity of their workforces and executive boards in response, in addition to donations to BLM and its allied groups.
