Know whose tax returns we ought to be looking at? Black Lives Matter’s tax returns.
Black Lives Matter is an organization that has firmly inserted itself into America’s domestic politics. They drive virtually every discussion on race this country presently engages in. Leading politicians up to and including Presidential candidates pander to them. The mainstream media worships them. Whenever mayhem descends upon an American city, Black Lives Matter can be found instigating and insinuating.
So why can’t we look at their tax returns?
Conceivably, Black Lives Matter is a 501(c) organization. 501(c) refers to the section of federal law – 26 USC 501(c) – that provides 29 categories for tax-exempt nonprofit organizations to use come tax time. (Sections 501 through 530 contain subsections that apply to tax exempt organizations of all kinds; 501(c) is the one most are familiar with).
What subsection of 501(c) Black Lives Matter might file under I don’t know. Looking at all 29*, I don’t see any that specifically apply to racially motivated rabble rousing thugs with collective IQs somewhere around room temperature. Surely though, they file under something don’t they?
So when do we get to take a look at their finances?
When do we learn what percentage of donations fund the lifestyles of the three women (Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi) that head the whole sham up, and what percentage go to other things?
What are the other things Black Lives Matter pays for?
And most importantly, who is paying them?
Does Black Lives Matter comply with the tax code at all? If not, isn’t this grounds for a swarm of federal agents descending on them like white on rice?
