They are not helping the black community.

Absolutely nothing for anyone but themselves

Don't call me racist. It's as valid an idea as systemic racism, implicit bias and some great white conspiracy to "keep the black man down." What if African Americans actually have some responsibility, and therefore control, over their lives?

We've been saying this for decades. There are plenty of us succeding, but few share secrets to success.
Plus, it's easy (for some reason) to try to keep us convinced that we're victims.

It’s always the white female liberals who throw a fit. I have not seen any minorities throw a fit

What does the color of someone's skin have to do with how well they manage money?
0 ups, 19h,
The value of education and good decision making habits can be passed down through generations. Their skin color wouldn't necessarily be the cause, but might be a marker.

"The value of education" it's a good job that black children weren't ever excluded from schools because of their skin color then...oh wait.
I wonder if not having ancestors that have passed down wealth and cultural capital through the generations which they made from owning people and having access to further education and the workforce has meant that instead of some young black kids being able to continue with their education, they have to go get low paid jobs?

Regardless of how you get there, it seems like there is a missing skill set which compounds the problem. I' m not referring to the jobs they get, but how the money from the jobs is managed. I don't know many families that passed down wealth, outside maybe the Kennedys well known families like that. Certainly my family didn't, and I know personally any who did. "Cultural capital" is an intersting concept as an aid to mobility, but I wouldn't count too heavily on it. People like the Kennedys and Rockefellers would seem to have a hell of a lot more of it than I do. Disparate access to education could be part of it, though the access today is more than ever and in the end education is useless without an underrstanding of what to do with it. I know some people who've done more with a HS diploma or a bachelor's degree than those with advanced degrees. Recognizing that african americans could help themselves more by learning and practicing better money management is more pragmatic and empowering than just saying racism.

Just making an outdated bus joke, carry on :-)

Yeah, you cannot donate to it. What? You think we're stupid?
0 ups, 14h
Yes, that is a donations page. Do you know where it goes?
I bet you've never looked into it. Because BLM is not a 501c.
Spend some time. Do some research. Learn some things.

Rest assured, there is funding of Leftist causes happening. Otherwise the movement would be evanescent

Yes, the Toronto Raptors bought the busses and use them to send the players to games.
