BLM Leader Accused of Using $10 Million As ‘Personal Piggy Bank’

A lawsuit filed in California accuses the new Black Lives Matter leader of siphoning off over $10 million from the “charitable” foundation and using it for his personal use.

Shalomyah Bowers is alleged to have put over $10 million in “fees” into his consulting firm, and the filing calls him a “rogue administrator” and “middle man turned usurper.”

Bowers told the New York Post that the accusations are merely a means to wrest power from him. BLM Grassroots, the new organization, reportedly launched just three months ago and claims to represent chapters around the country.

One of the group’s founders, attorney Walter Mosley, also drafted the lawsuit against Bowers.

The defendant claims that the suit is “the most insane thing I’ve read in a court pleading.” He said the group is in the process of “correcting things, fixing things,” and dealing with upset members of the organization who want to take control.

Among other things, the suit alleges that Bowers’ leadership brought on several Internal Revenue Service investigations and caused “irreparable harm.”

The BLM board of directors had an interesting take on the controversy. They blamed White supremacy.

In a statement from the BLM foundation, the plaintiffs are accused of walking in the footsteps “of their White oppressors and utilizing the criminal legal system which is propped up by White supremacy to solve movement disputes.”

The suit said there is a “shocking” lack of transparency within the organization. It accused the BLM Global Network Foundation of paying the Bowers Consulting Firm $2,167,894 last year alone.

Earlier this year, one of BLM’s co-founders, Patrisse Cullors, was accused of purchasing a multi-million dollar mansion in California with the foundation’s proceeds.

She said that she’d made “mistakes” but that her use of “White guilt money” was necessary when $90 million came pouring in.

BLM found its footing while trying to divert blame for all of society’s ills onto law enforcement and systematic racism. As the organization grew and prospered after the 2020 unrest, it became a fund-raising giant with precious little oversight and far too much financial controversy.
