BLM Support Plummets: Scandals Tank Donations & Poll Numbers

Black Lives Matter (BLM) has been in the midst of multiple scandals ever since its pinnacle in the year 2020. One of its former executives, Patrisse Cullors, a self-proclaimed Marxist, was recently discovered to have an extensive real estate portfolio. Her graffiti artist brother was also paid more than $800,000 by the charity for “security services.” Furthermore, the organization purchased an opulent mansion worth millions of dollars in LA just months after Floyd’s death, using donations from the supporters.

These shady financial dealings have raised questions from both the activists and opponents, with even the left-wing Amazon suspending the charity from its platform for failing to disclose where millions in donations were utilized. As a result, there is widespread disillusionment with the organization, which is reflected in the latest poll numbers.

During the peak of the George Floyd protests, BLM enjoyed support among 67 percent of adults in the United States. However, after three years, the support has significantly fallen. According to the recent Pew Research Center survey, only 51 percent of Americans now support BLM, which is even lower than last year’s 56 percent. On the other hand, the opposition is also at its highest point, with 46 percent of adults against the organization, which is a significant increase from 31 percent last year.

Notably, Democrats and left-leaning individuals, younger adults aged 18-29, and black adults show the highest support for BLM (84 percent, 64 percent, and 81 percent, respectively). However, the majority believes that the organization has not been effective in improving race relations in the country.

In fact, more than half of Americans believe that BLM has been ineffective in improving the lives of black people or the race relations (57 percent and 61 percent, respectively). The movement has only been perceived to be highly effective in bringing attention to racism against black people by a third of Americans (32 percent), followed by increasing police accountability (14 percent), improving the lives of black people (8 percent), and improving race relations (7 percent).

BLM’s declining support in the polls is also reflected in its financial condition. The charity’s cash flow has plummeted due to the recent scandals, with a meager $9.3 million brought in for the last fiscal year ending in June 2022, representing an 88 percent decline from the last year and significantly lower than its 2020 high of $80 million.

In conclusion, BLM’s shady financial dealings and controversies have caused a significant decrease in support for the organization, with the majority questioning its effectiveness in improving race relations and the lives of black people. As a political conservative, it is concerning to see the downfall of an organization that started with good intentions but seems to have lost its credibility due to its lack of transparency and mishandling of donations.
