New York Post reveals BLM founder receives money from Chinese Communist group

Avatar

BLM co-founder Alicia Garza, 39, who left Black Lives Matter to promote the Black Futures Lab is taking money directly from a Chinese Communist government-sponsored group, the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA) to support the new endeavor, says a report from the New York Post.

“A ‘trained Marxist’ founder of Black Lives Matter has teamed up on a new venture with a pro-Chinese Communist Party organization,” says the Post.

“Alicia Garza is now behind the advocacy group Black Futures Lab, which is backed by the Chinese Progressive Association, according to the website.”

The donate button for Black Futures Labs goes directly to the CPA website, says the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail says that, according to the CPA website, the Chinese group was founded in 1972, and that its original mission was to organize immigrant Chinese in San Francisco for the Communist regime, which apparently wasn’t very successful. Now, however, they are attempting to organize Blacks around a Marxist ideology backed by China.  

“The group, which has been repeatedly praised by state-run media [in China], backed raising the Chinese flag over Boston’s City Hall last year to celebrate the anniversary of the Communist Party’s takeover of China, and held a joint event with the People’s Republic of China to help Chinese nationals renew their passports, the Washington Times reported,” says the Post.

The China-Garza tie isn’t surprising.

Garza has previously been described as a Marxist by BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors. 

“We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many [B]lack folk,” Cullors said in an interview with The Real News Network.

Chinese racism against Blacks, however, is legendary. During the coronavirus outbreak in China, Black African students complained that they had been turned out of their apartments and arrested over fears that they had the COVID virus.

“In early April 2020, Chinese authorities in the southern city of Guangzhou, Guangdong province, which has China’s largest African community, began a campaign to forcibly test Africans for the coronavirus, and ordered them to self-isolate or to quarantine in designated hotels,” says Human Rights Watch. “Landlords then evicted African residents, forcing many to sleep on the street, and hotels, shops, and restaurants refused African customers. Other foreign groups have generally not been subjected to similar treatment.”

That prompted American officials to issue warnings to Black Americans to travel to China with caution.

The Black Futures Lab’s mission is to keep Blacks engaged politically all year long, on every topic so they build “black political power” and change “the way that power operates—locally, statewide, and nationally,” says the Daily Mail.

    When will people realize that Black lives Matter is nothing but another attempt to rid the country of President Trump. They do not care about all black lives. They only care about black lives if they are injured or killed by white police. I have yet to see the press ask a BLM person how they feel about the blacks who kill other blacks in Chicago, Baltimore, and other cities. They say nothing. They are silent.
    I also wonder why no one presses the issue that 2 of the 3 founders of BLM have publicly stated they are a Marxist. In other words they believe in Communism. This article just proves that BLM is an organization that supports the Communist Party AND wants to make the United States a Socialist ( Communist ) country.

    This is true. If you go to the Black Futures Lab and click to donate it says the group is a project of the Chines Progressive Assoc.
