Black Lives Matter Founder SUED for Allegedly Stealing $10 Million in Donations for Personal Use

A lawsuit has been filed against Shalomyah Bowers, a rogue administrator and middle man with no legal right to claim money from the Black Lives Matter (BLM) Global Foundation to use for his own personal use, according to areport in the Los Angeles Times.

Bowers is being accused in the lawsuit of stealing $10 million by former colleagues of Black Lives Matter. 

The complaint claimed that Bowers led the BLM Global Foundation into “multiple investigations by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and various state attorney generals, blazing a path of irreparable harm to BLM in less than 18 months.

The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Thursday, September 1, by a group calling itself Black Lives Grassroots.

While BLM leaders and movement workers were on the street risking their lives, Mr. Bowers remained in his cushy offices devising a scheme of fraud and misrepresentation to break the implied-in-fact contract between donors and BLM,” the suit added.

The board of directors of the BLM Global Fund denied the accusations in a joint statement.

The statement said, “They would rather take the same steps of our white oppressors and utilize the criminal legal system which is propped up by white supremacy (the same system they say the want to dismantle) to solve movement disputes.”

Black Lives Matter Los Angeles cofounder Melina Abdullah told reporters at a media briefing on Thursday that Bowers had shut her out of control of the group’s social media accounts.

Bowers released a statement firing back and accusing Abdullah of financial malfeasance and “unprincipled decision making, and a leadership style rooted in retribution and intimidation.”

The BLM Global Foundation was similarly criticized in April when a financial report indicated that they had used donation money to buy a $6 million home in southern California.

Bowers also defended that purchase, saying it was made in order to establish a “housing and studio space” for black creators. Other activists were upset at the use of the funds.
