During its 2021 fiscal year, Black Lives Matter (BLM) provided a $200,000 donation to Equity and Transformation (EAT), a Chicago-based organization known for its strong opposition to law enforcement, Your Content has learned.

EAT’s executive director, Richard Wallace, has gained attention for referring to police officers as ‘pigs’ and has actively participated in anti-police protests.

In addition to his outspoken views on law enforcement, Wallace has shown support for Assata Shakur, the aunt of the late rapper Tupac Shakur.

Assata Shakur is a fugitive on the FBI’s Most Wanted List, wanted for the murder of a New Jersey State Trooper.

The financial support from BLM to EAT was disclosed in recently released tax forms. It is noteworthy that BLM faced criticism in 2020 for mismanaging $90 million in donated funds.

The grant provided to EAT was categorized as a ‘cash grant’ in the tax forms, indicating a direct monetary contribution.

While the donation highlights BLM’s commitment to social causes, critics argue that the financial support to a group with radical views raises concerns about the organization’s agenda and allocation of funds, according to FLIPBOARD.
