In an interview with the The New York Times, Open Society Foundations President Patrick Gaspard announced that the organisation, headed by billionaire George Soros, is to “double down” on funding “black-led justice organizations”.

The interview was accompanied by a press release from the Open Society declaring that “The largest share of this support—$150 million—will be through a set of five-year grants to Black-led justice organizations that helped to create and now sustain the momentum towards racial equality.”

“Open Society’s response reflects our conviction that real progress requires sustained support over many years and letting leaders accountable to impacted communities shape the path forward.” the release adds.

It also notes that another $70 million will be allocated to “more immediate efforts to advance racial justice,” which include efforts  to “reimagine” policing.

Gaspard noted that the recent uprising in the US and across the world is “the moment we’ve been investing in for the last 25 years.”

“There is this call for justice in Black and brown communities, an explosion of not just sympathy but solidarity across the board,” he claimed, adding that “it’s time to double down.”

“And we understood we can place a bet on these activists — Black and white — who see this as a moment of not just incrementalism, but whole-scale reform,” Gaspard asserted.

Gaspard directly referenced the Black Lives Matter movement, staying that “we need these moments to be sustained. If we’re going to say ‘Black lives matter,’ we need to say ‘Black organizations and structures matter.’”

The Open Society’s bold admission will raise eyebrows given that just weeks ago anyone suggesting Soros’ foundations were providing financial assistance to BLM agitators was labelled a ‘conspiracy theorist’:

Indeed, Soros himself denied that his organisation was providing any funding to protests where violence occurred.

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors has chosen to live in one of the whitest areas of California after purchasing a $1.4 million dollar home in an area that has a black population of just 1.6 per cent.

A report by real estate website Dirt reveals that Khan-Cullors, who started the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag in 2013 in response to George Zimmerman’s acquittal, has purchased a “secluded mini-compound tucked into L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon.”

“A winding 15 minute drive from The Commons at Calabasas and a slightly longer and somewhat less serpentine drive from Malibu’s Getty Villa, the pint-sized compound spans about one-quarter of an acre. The property’s not-quite 2,400 square feet is divided between the a three-bedroom and two-bath main house and a separate one-bed/one-bath apartment capable of hosting guests long term with a private entry and a living room with kitchenette,” writes Mark David.

According to official data, non-hispanic white people make up 82.3% of the population in Topanga Canyon while African-Americans comprise a mere 1.64% of the population.

Other counties in California boast a substantially higher black population, including Alameda (12.5 per cent) and Sacramento (10.2 per cent).

According to an L.A. Times report, Topanga Canyon is noted for its population’s “privilege” and “geographic isolation from the mellow-harshing realities of modern American life.”

Although black lives may matter to Khan-Cullors, it appears as though she isn’t too keen on living amongst black people.

Social justice hypocrites who often spout anti-white rhetoric while choosing to live in gentrified white areas is nothing new, in fact it’s a common theme.

Celebrities and politicians who espouse pro-mass immigration sentiment routinely live in the least diverse areas possible.

New Poll Shows Support For BLM Continues to Fall

Drops 12 per cent amongst black Americans.

A new poll shows that support for Black Lives Matter is continuing to fall, particularly amongst black people where advocacy for the group has dropped by 12 per cent since June.

A USA Today/Ipsos survey reveals that overall public trust in BLM has dropped from 60 per cent in June to 50 per cent today. Trust in police now stands at 69 per cent.

Amongst whites, 42 per cent said they trusted BLM compared to 77 per cent who said they trusted police.

“But while the racial divide is wide, public opinion has shifted against BLM among both white and black Americans,” reports RT. “According to the poll, trust in BLM has dropped 12 percentage points among black people since last June, while trust in the police has jumped 14 points. The percentage of white people who trust BLM fell by eight points, while their trust in police rose 12 points.”

Fewer than one in five (18 per cent) of Americans now support a movement to “defund the police.”

The survey also showed a massive swing in the number of Americans who think the death of George Floyd was murder.

Back in June, 60 per cent described Floyd’s death as murder. That figure has dropped to just 36 per cent today.

A plurality of Americans now believe that Floyd’s death was either negligence, an accident, or that the officer did nothing wrong.

The poll numbers once again indicate how support for BLM naturally declines when the media is starved of polarizing events which it can exploit to push racial division.

“The poll didn’t include Floyd’s most likely cause of death, which is that he died of an overdose as a result of the deadly level of fentanyl in his system,” points out Chris Menahan.

Fashion Brand That Vehemently Supported Black Lives Matter Faces Slave Labor Scandal

Woke Boohoo not so woke when it comes to its own employees.

Fashion brand Boohoo, which vehemently expressed its support for Black Lives Matter in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd, is now embroiled in a slave labor scandal.

US Customs and Border Protection has seen enough enough to launch an investigation into the company after campaign group Liberty Shared exposed how the company “is not doing enough to stop forced labour in the Leicester factories which make many of its clothes,” reports Sky News.

“The evidence of Boohoo and forced labour is quite compelling. I think it will be a wake-up call for British institutions about how they’re handling modern slavery enforced labour, particularly in a community like Leicester East,” said Duncan Jepson.

A report last year by lawyer Alison Levitt QC found that the allegations against the company, which centered around illegally low wages and poor working conditions, were “substantially true.” Employees were also made to work through lockdown, potentially exposing them to COVID-19.

Any potential US ban would cost the company more than a fifth of the company’s total revenue.

The scandal is particularly ironic because Boohoo was one of the numerous corporations that vehemently virtue signaled in support of BLM during last summer’s riots, with the company posting a black square on social media for “Blackout Tuesday while asserting, “we are listening.”

“We are louder together. Say his name. #GeorgeFloyd #BlackLivesMatter,” Boohoo also told its followers on Instagram.

In another post, the company stated, “We are committed to use our influence as a brand and community to help your voices be heard.”

“At Boohoo we will no longer just be doing our thing,” the company said. “We will be doing better. We see you, we hear you and we, throughout all of this and beyond will stand with you.”

Boohoo also encouraged its customers to specifically support black-owned businesses.

As we previously highlighted, several other major transnational corporations like Nike, Coca-Cola and Apple, all of which strongly supported Black Lives Matter, lobbied against a US ban on imports of products produced by Chinese slave labor.

But they all posted the black square, so I guess that’s what really matters.
