Michael Brown Sr., the father of slain 18-year-old Michael Brown Jr., is requesting a portion of the $90 million Black Lives Matter received in donations in 2020.

Michael Jr. was killed by a white police officer in the St, Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri on August 9, 2014.

His death sparked months of sometimes violent protests in Ferguson and helped launch BLM as a Democratic Party political fundraising machine.

The International Black Freedom Alliance tweeted that Mike Brown Sr. "has received only $500" from BLM.

According to a report by theGrio.com, the Black Lives Matter organization received $90 million in funding in the aftermath of the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and others.

BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors claimed she is "reinvesting the money," to build "out the institution we've been trying to build for the last seven and a half years."

As more questions are raised about the disbursal of the funds, BLM announced a "Survival Fund" for Black people to apply for 3,000 micro grants of $1,000 each, no strings attached.

At least 300 people had been approved for grants as of last week, according to VladTV.

Brown Sr. has requested $20 million from BLM organizers as a good faith gesture, since they used his son's death as a catalyst for change.

Brown Sr. has stated that he hopes to use the $20 million for the Chosen For Change Foundation, the Mike Brown Community Center, organizing grants for Ferguson protests and activists, various programs and services in the Black community, and the annual Aug. 9 commemorations of Brown's death.

A Kentucky police officer was let go from the police force on Friday for giving information to a Black Lives Matter organizer during protests last summer.

Officer Jervis Middleton was fired from the Lexington Police Department following a unanimous vote by the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Council after a nine-hour hearing and two hours of closed deliberations, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported.

Middleton, who is Black, initially denied sharing information via text messages about police movements to his friend, BLM leader Sarah Williams.

The city obtained a search warrant that allowed access to Middleton's cell phone. He admitted his involvement with BLM when he was shown text messages exchanged between himself and Williams.

Middleton's lawyers argued that he shouldn't be fired because the information he shared with Williams didn't put officers in harm's way.

But, according to Lawofficer.com, once an officer is proven to be a liar they are useless as a witness in court.

Middleton claimed he was racially discriminated against by other officers who called him "boy" and "token boy." But the allegations were not investigated by the department because a formal complaint had not been filed.

Lexington Police Chief Lawrence Weathers said that while he understood Middleton's concerns, it didn't justify breaking the department's information-sharing policies.

Weathers, who is also Black, said race was not a factor in the recommendation to fire Middleton.

Kenosha County Jail

A judge in Kenosha, Wisconsin denied prosecutors' requests to raise Kyle Rittenhouse's bail or issue an arrest warrant for the teenager who killed 2 people during anti-police protests last summer.

Rittenhouse, then 17, was armed with a friend's AR-15 semi-automatic rifle when he traveled to Kenosha during the protests and riots following the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

Rittenhouse (pictured center) was charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the shooting death of Anthony Huber, 26 (pictured right), first-degree reckless homicide in the death of Joseph Rosenbaum (not pictured), and attempted first-degree intentional homicide for wounding Gaige Grosskreutz ([pictured left), who was armed with a handgun.

Rittenhouse maintains he shot the three Antifa protesters in self-defense because they were armed with weapons when they attacked him.

A protester who kicked Rittenhouse in the head was not shot because he was unarmed.

Rittenhouse is accused of violating the terms of his $2 million cash bond after he failed to update his new address when he moved out of his mother's Antioch, Illinois apartment.

Prosecutors had asked Kenosha County Circuit Court Judge Bruce Schroeder to raise Rittenhouse's bond by $200,000 cash, and issue a warrant for his arrest. But the judge declined both requests.

The terms of Rittenhouse's cash bail require him to update his new address within 48 hours of moving.

In an unusual decision, the judge sealed Rittenhouse's current address and refused to provide it to the Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office.

The district attorney previously refused to keep Rittenhouse's address a secret.

Rittenhouse moved to a "safe house" after receiving death threats.

Twitter users expressed outrage at the judge's decision.

A North Carolina news outlet sparked outrage on social media after publishing an editorial cartoon depicting prominent GOP politicians as KKK bigots.

WRAL, an NBC affiliate based in Raleigh, NC, labeled Lt. Governor Mark Robinson and State Board of Education member Olivia Oxendine as members of the Ku Klux Klan for objecting to teaching Black Lives Matter's critical race theory in the state's public schools.

Under the proposed curriculum, children as young as elementary school age will be introduced to racial politics, gender and transgender identities and dismantling the nuclear family headed by 2 heterosexual parents.

The Black Lives Matter-authored curriculum teaches children that they were "assigned" a gender at birth and they can be whatever gender they choose to be.

In the cartoon, an elephant, holding a copy of the state's proposed curriculum, is dressed in a Ku Klux Klan robe, while declaring, "we prefer to start with a clean sheet."

Robinson, who is Black, slammed WRAL as "vile" for publishing the cartoon, drawn by 8th-grade social studies teacher Dennis Draughon, during Black History Month in America.

"On the second day of Black History Month, the first black Lt. Governor of North Carolina has been portrayed as such by one of the largest news outlets in this state," Robinson said. "It's something we cannot stand for."

Oxendine, the board's only Native American member, voiced her opposition to the proposed social studies standards, saying it gives "the feeling of America the oppressor, not America the land of opportunity."

Twitter user @flyfischer4428 slammed WRAL, writing: "I CANNOT believe how offensive this is. @markrobinsonNC is black. Olivia Oxendine is a Native American. @WRAL, @wlos this cartoon should be a story by itself."

Another Twitter user, @LotusBlossom44, wrote: "Wow. I thought WRAL couldn't sink any lower. This is shameful in so many ways. Calling GOP the KKK for not wanting to include race-based ideologies in the educational curriculum?"

A well-funded Black Lives Matter activist was arrested Thursday for inciting violence inside the Capitol building during the DC riots. It was John Sullivan's second arrest in one week.

The Utah resident and anti-Trump activist told Just the News last week that he was present in Washington, DC, the day of the riot "specifically [as] a journalist, just to record the events that were going down."

But photos show Sullivan wearing pro-Trump gear and carrying a Trump flag. He was captured on video shouting "Let's go. This shit is ours!" and "Let's burn this shit down."?

He bragged online that he broke a window at the Capitol building and led pro-Trump protesters inside.

Sullivan just happened to be filming near Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt when she was shot and killed by a Black Secret Service agent outside the Senate chamber.

Moments after Babbitt was shot, Sullivan's blonde accomplice, Jade Sacker, couldn't contain her excitement.

"We did it!" Sacker told Sullivan. "You were right! We did it!"

"Dude, I was trying to tell you," Sullivan replied. "I couldn't say much. Is this not going to be the best film you've ever made in your life?"

Sullivan was arrested on January 6, and charged with "rioting and criminal mischief." He was quickly released when he told police he was a "journalist" covering the riots.

Sullivan made the rounds on cable television news, explaining what he saw when Babbitt was shot just feet away from him.

The FBI later insisted no Black Lives Matter or Antifa activists participated in the riots.

But dozens of videos have since surfaced showing Sullivan instigating violence inside the Capitol building on Jan. 6.

Sullivan was arrested again on Thursday, Jan. 14, on charges stemming from his involvement in the riots. He is still in custody at this time.

Authorities used Sullivan's own videos to make the arrest, according to KUTV 2 News.

The feds were willing to let Sullivan go the first time. But he ran his mouth too much for them to ignore him.

A bust created in honor of slain Louisville resident Breonna Taylor was smashed and vandalized, presumably by Black Lives Matter protesters, in downtown Oakland, California over the weekend.

Police are investigating the act of vandalism and vowed to get even with whoever smashed the bust in protest of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Taylor, a 26-year-old EMT, was shot to death by three undercover cops who served a wrong house warrant on Taylor's Louisville apartment in March.

The ceramic bust, installed 2 weeks ago, was painted brown and featured the words "Say Her Name Breonna Taylor."

The artist, Leo Carson, expressed his disappointment and said the vandalism felt like a personal attack on himself and Taylor.

"At first I was stunned and shocked and hurt and angry," said Carson, an unemployed waiter. "Just a whole flood of emotions. It felt like I was personally attacked and also they attacked Breonna Taylor and the BLM movement."

Carson, who was among those demonstrating in the streets prior to the November 3 presidential elections, spent the next 6 weeks creating the sculpture.

"I was able to take that time and practice and training I have as an artist and put that into service of something much bigger than myself that's happening," Carson said.

Carson created a GoFundMe page to help defray the cost of repairing the bust.

A Black family in a Dallas suburb want answers after their two cars were set ablaze and vandals spray painted "Trump 20" on their garage door.

The family believes the vandals struck because of a Black Lives Matter sign in front of their home.

"It's definitely a hate crime," Jayla Gipson, 36, told NBC News. She said that her 21-year-old son initially smelled smoke from the burning cars around midnight on Wednesday. "'Trump 2020' was sprayed on our garage, our 'Black Lives Matter' sign was spray-painted, and our cars were engulfed in flames."

"Had that sign not been in my yard, I don't think this would have ever been an incident for us," she said.

Gipson told reporters, "My life does matter, and regardless of how anyone feels or what their beliefs or opinions is — it's something that I'm voicing to the universe. Black Lives Matter."

An investigation is underway, but police have no suspects. The vandalism is not considered a police priority because it's a property crime. And similar hate crimes were determined to be hoaxes committed by the 'victims' themselves.

Black Twitter expressed outrage over Joe Biden's dismissive demeanor during a Dec. 8 Zoom call with Black civil rights leaders.

According to those who listened to the nearly 2-hour audio, Biden "talked down" to the civil rights leaders, including Rev. Al Sharpton, who later defended Biden, saying he was not dismissive at all.

The presumptive president-elect reportedly said the "defund the police" movement "beat the living hell out of" Democrats during the November elections.

He also said Hispanics, who are double the population of Black people in America, will outnumber white people soon.

One group that was not invited to the table was Black Lives Matter, who continue to complain that Biden is ignoring them.

Here are some of the YouTube comments in response to the leaked audio:

"I don't think a lot of people realize how racist Joe Biden is. It's impossible for him to talk 'to' black people, he's always talked 'at' us."

"Biden has a tone of SCOLDING them as though he was expecting nothing but praise. I thought the point of the meeting was to SPEAK about the issues."

"Omg. You can't have a conversation with the guy. Nothing will get done. He's defensive because he knows he's not on the side of the working class."

"Biden is commit to raising up dozens of already affluent black people, while continuing the tradition of screwing over millions of poor black people."

"This is embarrassing. He's speaking to ppl as though they are children."

Barack Obama is reminding Black people to stop using the pointless slogan "defund the police," because the election is over.

The government was never serious about defunding police departments. But the slogan served its purpose by riling up a certain community and fueling civil unrest over the summer.

The former president, who many believe won his third term in office, said, "If you believe, as I do, that we should be able to reform the criminal justice system so that it's not biased and treats everybody fairly, I guess you can use a snappy slogan like 'Defund The Police,' but, you know, you lost a big audience the minute you say it, which makes it a lot less likely that you're actually going to get the changes you want done."

Obama told Peter Hamby on Snapchat's Good Luck America, "If you want to get something done in a democracy, in a country as big and diverse as ours, then you've got to be able to meet people where they are," and "play a game of addition and not subtraction."

Black Lives Matter D.C. chapter has gone on the attack against Black Lives Matter's national leadership for what they say is a failure to support local chapters.

In a series of tweets on Monday, BLM DC slammed BLM national for undermining "the work & integrity of local chapters."

Among BLM DC's complaints are a lack of accounting to show where the millions in donations went.

BLM DC tweeted: "We demand full financial transparency and accountability to all chapters."

"Despite millions being donated to the network, local chapters have lacked support & resources from national leadership. As a result, much of our local community work continues to be erased. #BlackLivesMatter #BLM10."

"As a result of national leadership's actions, several local chapters have had the integrity of their community work questioned. We cannot afford to stay silent any longer."

"As we collectively determine next steps, we encourage our supporters to organize with and donate directly to chapters, who represent the frontline of Black Lives Matter."

It sounds like the Black members of Black Lives Matter haven't received the memo that the election is over and they were used as pawns in an elaborate political scheme.
