BLM Activist Is “Extremely Sorry” For Spending Donations To Fund Her Lavish Lifestyle As She Gets Sent To Prison
One Black Lives Matter activist is "extremely sorry" she got caught on a fraud charge in the name of BLM.
A BLM activist who splashed tens of thousands of pounds in donations on her own lifestyle, including nearly £6,000 on Uber and takeout, has been jailed for two and a half years, according to the BBC.
I am not really surprised since Black Lives Matter raised $90 million in 2020 and somehow they never solved racism like they were supposed to.
Twenty-three-year-old Xahra Saleem set up a GoFundMe page to raise money before a BLM march in Bristol that took to the toppling of Edward Colston’s statue in June of 2020. Following the march, donations were raised in the amount of £32,344.
She organized the event after the George Floyd incident even though she is not American and it makes no sense why someone in Europe cares.
The funds were supposed to go to Changing Your Mindset, a youth company in the city, of which she was the director. However, she moved the money from a trust account into a newly opened personal account and went on a spending spree on “lifestyle expenses” for the next 15 months.
With no other source of funds dispersed into the account, she made over 2,500 payments, spending more than £5,800 on Uber.
She confessed to a friend on WhatsApp saying she had committed “something horrendous”, adding “My brain spent [the money]. I couldn’t tell what, where, or why.”
I am sure that is exactly how it went down.
After the company had repeatedly requested the funds but was blown off, they finally gave her one last change in June of 2021. That is when she finally owned up to her crimes.
“I am so sorry, I am still trying to understand my actions as well,” her email read.
This led to the subsequent closure of the organization.
She first denied the fraud charge but later pleaded guilty in Sept.
Saleem was sentenced to two and a half years imprisonment.
“You did not set out to defraud anyone, but you took the opportunity when you had control of the company’s money to spend it on your own expenses,” the judge said.
Her defense attorney said she was "extremely sorry" and tried to justify that she was just 20 years old and that she had been drinking and doing drugs, as well as suffering from mental health issues.
Although I do not deny that any of that is true, it is pretty ironic how people somehow only ever say “sorry” after they are caught.
In a statement released after the hearing, Jay Daley and Deneisha Royal from the youth group Changing Your Mindset said: “'It doesn't feel that justice has been fully served as we are unlikely to get back the money from her. It feels like we are being punished. It saddens me that a member of our community could do this to us because they knew and understood the goal we set out to achieve in order to positively change our community.”
That is so sad.
Ironically, recent reports also suggest that Black Lives Matter’s Global Network Foundation may not be too far from filing for bankruptcy.
Last year, the foundation ran $8.5 million in arrears, while donations plunged 88%, The Washington Free Beacon reported. Co-founder Patrisse Cullors resigned from the organization in 2021 after she was accused of using BLM’s funds for her personal use, a charge she has denied.
According to The New York Post, Cullors went on “a real estate buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone.”
Where did that $90 million go? How much of those funds actually benefited the black community and how many more millions do people need to donate before we fix racism? I would generally like to know.
Besides creating the hashtag, "#BlackLivesMatter" what else have they accomplished? Well, I think we all know the answer to that.
