Federal agents have indicted Monica Cannon-Grant and her husband of the BLM-style “Violence In Boston” group on fraud charges. The husband/wife duo allegedly took money from the organization that should have gone toward charitable causes and spent it on themselves. Everything from hair and nails to a house was purchased with charity funds. There is also an allegation of pandemic fraud. Plenty of money came through their charity organization as well as the couple’s separate jobs. That did not stop them from allegedly claiming pandemic hardship.
Local activists say that this is a very bad look for the movement. And of course, it is. Several other Black Lives Matter organizations have done the exact same thing. They purport themselves to fight for the rights of black people. They rabble rouse online, in communities, on television, and anywhere else they can to promote the cause of social justice. Time and time again, the more well-known groups are discovered to have engaged in some sort of fraud or fishy activities. The top dog of them all, BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors, was found to have a $3.4 million real estate portfolio. Cullors probably did not do anything technically illegal, but there is no question that her wealth most certainly derived from the BLM movement. Cannon-Grant clearly didn’t follow the Cullors playbook and cinderblock walls will be in her immediate future.
