Another scandal associated with leaders of Black Lives Matter and misappropriation of funds has emerged in Massachusetts. The Boston Globe reported one of the BLM community organizers is under federal investigation over allegations that she and her husband illegally used donations.

41-year-old Monica Cannon-Grant “started her charity with $1,000 in 2017 and now operates out of a 4,000-square-foot headquarters in Hyde Park” reported the Globe. Now, her husband, Clack Grant, has been arrested and she is under federal investigation by the US Attorney’s office.

The couple’s home was raided and “a federal grand jury issued a subpoena for records from the Suffolk District Attorney’s office, which is one of several public and private entities that donated to the activist’s organization. Investigators are attempting to ascertain whether any of the donations or grant money the organization received were used for personal expenses” reported the Globe.

Cannon-Grant has close relationships with Democratic Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, also a Democrat. They reportedly became friendly when they were both still members of the city council.

Monica’s husband is suspected of committing COVID unemployment fraud and making false statements on a mortgage application. The Globe reports “federal prosecutors allege he collected $67,950 in COVID-19 pandemic unemployment benefits between May 2020 and September 2021 although he was employed full time during that period, according to a 15-page criminal complaint.”

Cannon-Grant was honored as Boston Globe Magazine’s Bostonian of the Year after she organized a march to protest police brutality. She denied wrongdoing and said “white supremacists, the government, and a group of black folks” targeted her due to her success.

“More money, more problems” she stated.

    No law enforcement targeted her because she is enriching herself personally with charitable donations. Another race hustling fraud blaming “white supremacists she cannot name,the government and a group of black folks” she cannot name because she’s a fraudulent con artist. She’s despicable. NOBODY is jealous of her NOBODY. She’s a common criminal in a shady organization.

    “More money, more problems”? Seriously? In her attempt to blame money, she’s forgetting HOW the money was obtained and HOW the money was used. SHE IS THE GUILTY ONE HERE, not the money!!

    She and all the others involved in any way need to receive thousands of COMMUNITY SERVICE hours and be required to return to those cities that had destruction caused by BLM members and ANTIFA. Ferguson, Missouri is a good place to start.

American Pediatrics to Scrutinize ‘Entire Catalog’ to Eliminate ‘Race-Based’ Medicine

Published

on

The American Academy of Pediatrics is “committing to scrutinizing its ‘entire catalog,’ including guidelines, educational materials, textbooks and newsletter articles” in order to “abandon race-based guidance,” reports the Associated Press.

The AP reports that “for years” pediatricians have followed flawed guidelines “linking race to risks for urinary infections and newborn jaundice.” The Academy announced its new policy Monday, saying it will put all guidance under the microscope to eliminate “race-based” medicine and resulting health disparities.

The Academy says it is purging outdated advice and is committed to scrutinizing its “entire catalog” such as guidelines, educational materials, textbooks and newsletter articles, said Dr. Joseph Wright, lead author of the new policy and chief health equity officer at the University of Maryland’s medical system.

The AP writes the Academy’s decision began before George Floyd was killed in 2020, which intensified doctors’ concerns “that Black youngsters have been undertreated and overlooked” , said Wright.

Specifically, a revision to its newborn jaundice guidance which currently suggests certain races have higher or lower risks, is planned for this summer, said Wright. “Last year, the academy retired a guideline calculation based on the unproven idea that Black children faced lower risks that white kids for urinary infections” reports the AP. “A review had shown that the strongest risk factors were prior urinary infections and fevers lasting more than 48 hours, not race, Wright said.”

The AP reports:

In recent years, other major doctor groups including the American Medical Association have made similar pledges. They are spurred in part by civil rights and social justice movements, but also by science showing the strong roles that social conditions, genetics and other biological factors play in determining health.

Dr. Valerie Walker, a specialist in newborn care and health equity at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, called the policy “a critical step” toward reducing racial health disparities.”

D.C. Elementary School Gives Children ‘Fistbooks’ to identify ‘racist family members’, identify their own ‘white privilege’

Published

The obsession liberals have for infiltrating the minds of children is increasingly dangerous. A Washington, D.C. public elementary school gave children as young as 4 in Pre-Kindergarten, through 3rd grade, “Anti-Racism Fight Club Fistbook for Kids.”

The book shows white and black drawn characters; the cover is a Black figure holding a sign above the head, as if in a protest, that reads “ARFC Fistbook for kids.” Underneath the drawing reads (It’s a Fight Club. We don’t do “handbooks.”)

The purpose of the book is for children to identify their own racist tendencies, as well as identify “racist members” of their family. “As part of this work, each student has a fist book to help continue the dialogue at school and home,” a letter from the Janney Elementary School Principal Danielle Singh explained.

“We recognize that any time we engage topics such as race and equity, we may experience a variety of emotions. This is a normal part of the learning and growing process. As a school community we want to continue the dialogue with our students and understand this is just the beginning” the letter continued.

“Anti-Racism Fight Club Fistbook for Kids” explains that “white people are a part of a society that benefits them in almost every instance,” and that “it’s as if white people walk around with an invisible force field because they hold all of the power in America.”
“If you are a white person, white privilege is something you were born with and it simply means that your life is not more difficult due to the color of your skin,” the “Fistbook for Kids” explains.

“Put differently, it’s not your fault for having white privilege, but it is your fault if you choose to ignore it.” The “Fistbook for Kids” says anti-racism “isn’t a spectator sport” but requires “being loud, uncomfortable, confrontational and visible to ensure change is made.”

A series of questions in the book asks children, “Where do you see racism in yourself? This requires true soul-searching. Be real with yourself, don’t feel guilt/shame and own it. It’s the first step in becoming an anti-racist.”
