Want to know where all those corporate donations for #BLM are going? Here's the list.​

Iconic American brands, from Facebook to Apple, have pledged financial support for the #BlackLivesMatter movement in response to the death of George Floyd — but many companies have yet to clarify where the money will go and how much they will donate.

Airbnb
The home-sharing site tweeted on June 1 that it will be giving a total of $500,000 to the NAACP and Black Lives Matter.

Amazon
The retail and technology giant announced on June 3 that it plans to donate a total of $10 million to 11 organizations, including the ACLU, Equal Justice Initiative, and the NAACP.

Apple
In a note to employees, Apple CEO Tim Cook said he had donated to organizations including the Equal Justice Initiative, The New York Post reported. However, it is unclear how much money Apple has donate

Away
The trendy luggage brand announced it would be donating money to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the Southern Poverty Law Center Action Fund, and The Bail Project. Away encouraged those who saw the post to do the same, but did not specify how much money it would donate.
“At this time we are not disclosing the exact amounts of Away's donations,” a representative from Away told NBC. However, Away’s co-founder and chief brand officer Jen Rubio and her partner Stewart Butterfield announced they would donate $700,000 to Black Lives Matter, The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, The Bail Project, The Equal Justice Initiative, the Center for Policing Equity, Campaign Zero, Project NIA, Color of Change, Until Freedom, and the Loveland Foundation. Rubio and Butterfield also pledged to match donations up to $300,000.

Coca-Cola
The legacy American brand Coca-Cola released a statement on Twitter on June 3, announcing that it would be donating to 100 Black Men “as a part of the effort to end systemic racism and bring true equality to all.” The statement did not include how much money the company plans to donate.

Facebook
Let our news meet your inbox. The news and stories that matters, delivered weekday mornings.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post on Sunday that his company would be donating $10 million “to groups working on racial justice.” He said the company is “working with our civil rights advisors and our employees to identify organizations locally and nationally that could most effectively use this right now.”
However, this response has largely been overshadowed by internal division over Zuckerberg’s decision not to flag or remove a number of President Donald Trump’s posts.

Glossier
The beauty brand released a statement on Instagram saying the company planned to donate $500,000 to “organizations focused on combating racial injustice.”
The statement specifically cited Black Lives Matter, The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, The Equal Justice Initiative, The Marsha P. Johnson Institute, and We The Protesters.
Glossier CEO Emily Weiss also announced that it will give an additional $500,000 in the form of grants to Black-owned beauty businesses, with more details on that initiative later this month.

Nike
The sports retailer shared a video on social media that urged its followers to “For Once, Just Don’t Do It,” asking them not to ignore the realities of racism in the United States.
While the video was widely shared across Instagram and Twitter and has received close to 22 million views, some of the most popular comments on the video asked how Nike would respond to the movement beyond the video.
“Where is the real action? This will only be considered a selfish marketing strategy until we see some solid action," one social media user commented.
Following the initial backlash, Nike released a statement on June 5, announcing a $40 million “commitment over the next four years to support the Black community in the U.S.”
While the company has not yet specified where the money will go, Nike told NBC News it works with “partners like PeacePlayers and Jackie Robinson Foundation [and] initiatives like the Jordan Brand Wings Program and Serena Design Crew, a collaboration with Serena Williams."

Uber
CEO Dara Khosrowshahi announced on May 31 that the company plans to give $1 million to the Equal Justice Initiative and the Center for Policing Equity.

Warby Parker
The eyeglass seller said it would donate $1 million to “organizations and initiatives focused on combating systemic racism.” While the statement, posted on Instagram, did not specify the organizations to which it would give money, the company said more details would come after input from its own team and “leaders in this field.”
Some comments on the post criticized the company for failing to immediately list the organizations its donation will fund.
“We will be transparent with our communities and share more details on our approach once it’s finalized,” Warby Parker co-founder and co-CEO Dave Gilboa told NBC.

YouTube
YouTube announced in a tweet last week that it would be giving $1 million to the Center for Policing Equity.
Other corporations, including Disney and Netflix, have issued statements of support for the Black community, but have not indicated any changes they will make internally, nor any specific donations.

The MSM, of course, are calling the FLA "Far Right."

They're so thick that they don't even ask themselves the question: "If they are Far Right neo-Nazis, why on Earth would they be defending a statue of Churchill?'
Because they can't think for themselves - they just follow along with the propaganda without even the slightest understanding of what they're doing.

The ONLY reason BLM has a f*cking problem with Churchill is because BLM are a bunch f*ckweed Marxists and Churchill was staunchly anti-communist.

Unfortunately the 80% Liberal and farther left MSM are pushing the propaganda. Once again, this is the kind of shit extremists do when they're taking over a country. They destroy its institutions. They attack and rewrite its history. They accuse everyone who opposes them of being extremists themselves. They take over media outlets, or said outlets simply voluntarily become propaganda wings of their preferred party/ideological masters. They incite and engage in political violence while accusing those who oppose them of inciting the violence.

And my personal favourite is a variation of a Mafia scheme. Cause all kinds of social problems, societal issues, divisions, and whatever else leads to violence and insurrection then claim only THEY can fix the problems if you vote for them. Well of course they can, because they're behind them all.

The US is a current example of a slow motion coup. Note how immediately after the election in 2016 the leftist dregs were out in droves rioting over the actual outcome of the election. Fast forward to 2020. How many right-wing rioters went berserk and started destroying public and private property? How many went around assaulting people just because they voted for Biden? None of them. I'm also willing to bet dollars to donuts that the little "insurrection" at the Capitol the other day was a false flag operation. When I look at the other shit that's gone on recently I feel pretty safe making that bet. I'm not saying I know that's 100% the case but if I was a betting man that'd be my bet.

Unlike many of the millenial tools, and a few older ones, I don't implicitly trust the news media just because Trump shit on them. I'm old enough to remember the lies up to and including the biggest scam of all so far, Y2K. You see ladies and gentlemen, the news media figured out a long time ago they could lie to us with near impunity. With Y2K they learned how easily they could manipulate the vast majority of the human population because they foolishly trust the news not to.

That's why you're seeing the attacks on free speech via social media platforms. The media won't speak the truth anymore and the left-wing extremists know they have the MSM wrapped up. But social media still allows people to spread facts and truth. Two things that scare the living shit out of extremists. as one can see by some of the leftist reactions in here to cold, hard facts.

Free speech and free thought must be destroyed. Group think and regulated speech are the true signs of human evolutionary intelligence and being "woke" :ROFLMAO: ah shit, I knew I wouldn't get through that last bit without laughing.

This is what woke is: "MY body, MY right, YOUR responsibility."
This is what woke is: "Hey look, I got a scholarship in Cecil Rhodes name to an Ivy League University. OMG that statue of Cecil oppresses me."
This is what woke is: "You must love and embrace multiculturalism. But you better not embrace it too hard or we'll accuse you of cultural appropriation."
This is what woke is: "Gender is NON-binary! Wait, what the f*ck is a gamete?"
This is what woke is: "ALL White people are responsible for slavery." And, "F*ck off! I'm not responsible for what my kid does."
This is what woke is: "I don't need oil. I ride the bus."
This is what woke is: "Even though 85% of a Native group is in support of a pipeline, I'm protesting against it in solidarity with them".
This is what woke is: "You can't tar all the people in a group with the same brush, except everyone who disagrees with us".

Woke? More like friggin' sleepwalking. It's like trying to talk sense to a religious fanatic. It's not that they simply can't accept reality, they actually refuse delivery.

"Fascism, communism, genocide, slavery, racism, imperialism--the West has no shortage of reasons for guilt. And, indeed, since the Holocaust and the end of World War II, Europeans in particular have been consumed by remorse. But Pascal Bruckner argues that guilt has now gone too far. It has become a pathology, and even an obstacle to fighting today's atrocities. Bruckner, one of France's leading writers and public intellectuals, argues that obsessive guilt has obscured important realities. The West has no monopoly on evil, and has destroyed monsters as well as created them--leading in the abolition of slavery, renouncing colonialism, building peaceful and prosperous communities, and establishing rules and institutions that are models for the world. The West should be proud--and ready to defend itself and its values. In this, Europeans should learn from Americans, who still have sufficient self-esteem to act decisively in a world of chaos and violence. Lamenting the vice of anti-Americanism that grips so many European intellectuals, Bruckner urges a renewed transatlantic alliance, and advises Americans not to let recent foreign-policy misadventures sap their own confidence. This is a searing, provocative, and psychologically penetrating account of the crude thought and bad politics that arise from excessive bad conscience."

Review of The Tyranny of Guilt by Paul Bruckner. Definetly worth the read.
