These ‘Fortune 500’ Companies Donated To The Marxist, Anti-Capitalism Black Lives Matter Foundation

Fortune 500 Companies Donated To BLM

Uggs, Amazon, Gatorade, Microsoft, Warner Records, Intel, Bungie of Xbox and Microsoft Games, and Nabisco all specifically pledged money to the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation.

At least seven “Fortune 500” companies donated funds to the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation despite its Marxist roots and anti-capitalistic views. 

According to Axios, “the 100 largest U.S. companies have so far committed $1.63 billion to organizations fighting racism and inequality.” Analysis of social media posts, blogs, and public statements collected, however, shows that Decker’s Uggs, Amazon, Pepsi’s Gatorade, Microsoft, Warner Records, Intel, Bungie of Xbox and Microsoft Games, and Mondelez International’s Nabisco all specifically pledged money to the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation following the death of George Floyd.

According to the Black Lives Matter website, their goal is to promote “Freedom, Liberation and Justice” and “to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.” The movement’s ideological roots however, run deeper than bringing justice to victims of police brutality. 

One of the BLM co-founders, Patrisse Khan-Cullors, explained the foundation of the movement, inspired by her and co-founders Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi, in an interview in 2015.

“We actually do have an ideological frame,” she told The Real News. “Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists.”

One click into the “What We Believe” portion of the BLM website reveals a far broader agenda for the organization. Stated goals include “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.”  Another mission statement refers to its members as “comrades” a common moniker used by communists.

In addition, the newest Black Lives Matter campaign, #WhatMatters2020, focuses on highlighting certain political issues such as “racial injustice, police brutality, criminal justice reform, Black immigration, economic injustice, LGBTQIA+ and human rights, environmental injustice, access to healthcare, access to quality education, and voting rights and suppression” as well as “government corruption” and “commonsense gun laws” to emphasize and push in the 2020 election. Using target goals, the organization hopes to increase the black voting demographic, educate and amplify on the previously mentioned political goals, and increase voter registration for younger generations, the black demographic, and “allies.”

Using ActBlue, a platform dedicated to creating fundraising for “Democratic candidates and committees, progressive organizations, and nonprofits that share our values,” Black Lives Matter solicits donations to further their goals. 

Although The Federalist reached out to each of the “Fortune 500” companies for comment, asking whether or not financially supporting Black Lives Matter squared away with their capitalistic company values, economic practices, and political views, we received no response.
