Black Lives Matter donated $200,000 during its 2021 fiscal year to a radical Chicago group led by a police activist who has repeatedly referred to police officers as “pigs” and expressed delight at the anti-officer riots.
Richard Wallace, who heads the black activist group Equity and Transformation (EAT), organized several protests against the police, called the officers “b*****ds” and showed his support for the aunt of the late rapper Tupac Shakur, Assata Shakur, a terrorist. Wanted by the FBI for the murder of a New Jersey State Trooper.
He also believes that African Americans are entitled to reparations due to centuries of enslavement and oppression of whites.
Recently released tax forms for the BLM Global Network Foundation show that the company, which recently admitted to improperly spending $90 million in donated funds in 2020 after the death of George Floyd, gifted EAT a “cash grant” of $200,000 in 2021.

The group, founded by Wallace in 2018, calls itself a social justice nonprofit “by and for post-incarcerated people,” according to its website.
However, its primary goal is ‘social and economic equity for black workers engaged in the informal economy’ and to help African Americans working in ‘unregulated or state-protected’ jobs, including criminals.
Since its inception, the firm has organized dozens of protests against the police and has demonstrated radical beliefs.
Wallace, who repeatedly called the police ‘pigs’ during these demonstrations, has made his disdain for officers known, offering comments such as ‘we need to defund these bastards’ and ‘Fuck the police’.
“They are after us and will use any excuse to climb a pole and end our lives,” the EAT executive director wrote in October 2020, as the United States grappled with the social unrest seen after the police killing of George Floyd.
“That’s why we have to defund these bastards and take control of our community because they won’t save us.”
Also in 2020, Wallace shared a response expressing his delight at a Newsweek article about the burning of a Minneapolis police station following Floyd’s death.
The article contained a poll that found 54 percent of Americans felt the compound’s destruction was justified due to the indiscretions of officer Derek Chauvin, who strangled Floyd during an arrest in May 2020 and led to his death.
Wallace captioned the post, which featured an image of a liquor store near the burning compound, with three smiley face emojis.
