There are 5 comments on BU Alum Turns to Social Media to Raise Funds in Support of #BlackLivesMatter

  1. Does she (or BLM) have any plans to raise funds for the families of black children, murdered over the last month? Because like George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, they were black and unarmed.

  2. Great work Natalie. I like seeing BU alum being proactive in important issues like this. You’ve inspired me to make another donation to BLM. Thanks Natalie!

  3. Are any of the funds going to be given to the thousands of black people whose homes and communities were destroyed by the BLM “peaceful” protesters? Will the funds be used to create after school programs in inner city neighborhoods? Will they be used to support black churches where families are supported?

    I wonder if Natalie, or anyone who contributed to her campaign, have the slightest idea of who BLM really is? Take a minute to look up who the founders of the movement are and what their stated objective is. I would think that at least anyone with a college education would be widely read on a cause they support. I urge you to find out who the leaders in the movement are and their history.

  4. I agree with what Bill and Kate said. I believe that Natalie is either ignorant of or chooses not to believe the fact of how BLM is racist in nature. During the “protests” and subsequent riots in Los Angeles, the leaders of the BLA were heard screaming and yelling anti-Semitic remarks and several synagogues were defaced with anti-Semitic writing. Is this the face of a “Blacks Rights” movement that needs support? I certainly hope not. I keep reading of how BLM is fighting for justice and against prejudice. What happens when Blacks and BLM members show prejudice against another race? There is silence, which illustrates how one-sided their thinking is.
