From what articles have suggested or have written about this...


Groups:


Colorlines

"Outlets which covered the research, and the movements themselves, included one, Colorlines, which Soros himself has funded."

  • Colorlines is an online news site that focuses on race issues and is published by Race Forward, a group that received $200,000 from Mr. Soros’s foundation in 2011. Colorlines has published tirelessly on the activities in Ferguson and heavily promoted the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag and activities.


Organization for Black Struggle


"The Soros cash was also put to work driving buzzwords and social media campaigns to propel Ferguson into the national consciousness.

One recipient of his funding is the Organization for Black Struggle, which in turned established a group called the Hands Up Coalition, that has helped make ubiquitous the 'hands up, don't shoot' slogan."



Drug Policy Alliance

"Soros also gave money to the Drug Policy Alliance, which worked on the perpetuation of the 'black lives matter' buzz phrase, which has been incorporated into speeches by political figures including Hillary Clinton."

“I went to Ferguson in a quest to be in solidarity and stand with the young organizers and affirm their leadership,” said Kassandra Frederique, policy manager at the Drug Policy Alliance, which was founded by Mr. Soros, and which receives $4 million annually from his foundation. She traveled to Ferguson in October.



Black Alliance for Just Immigration

Ms. Frederique works with Opal Tometi, co-creator of #BlackLivesMatter — a hashtag that was developed after the killing of Trayvon Martin in Florida — and helped promote it on DPA’s news feeds. Ms. Tometi runs the Black Alliance for Just Immigration, a group to which Mr. Soros gave $100,000 in 2011, according to the most recent of his foundation’s tax filings.


Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference

Clergy representatives from the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference, where the Rev. Jeremiah Wright serves as a trustee, also showed up. SDPC received $250,000 from Mr. Soros in 2011.


Gamaliel Foundation

One of the organizations that Mr. Soros funds, and which fueled the demonstrations in Ferguson, is the Gamaliel Foundation, a network of grass-roots, inter-religious and interracial organizations. Mr. Obama started his career as a community organizer at a Gamaliel affiliate in Chicago.


PICO (Pacific Institute for Community Organizations)

During Gamaliel’s weekend protest event, Sunday was deemed “Hands Up Sabbath,” where clergy were asked to speak out about racial issues, using packets and talking points prepared for them by another religion-based community organizing group, PICO.

PICO is also supported by the Open Society Foundations, according to its website.




MORE


FrontPage Magazine reports that Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE) has been paying protesters $5,000 a month to demonstrate in Ferguson. Last week, hired protesters who haven’t been paid held a sit-in at MORE’s offices and posted a demand letter online.

MORE is the re-branded Missouri branch of ACORN, which filed for bankruptcy in late 2010, FrontPage reported. MORE and other groups supporting the Black Lives Matter movement have received millions of dollars from billionaire financier George Soros.


and so on and so on

"Black Lives Matter" Funded By George Soros?



Cross-check these


These are not "Black Lives Matter" groups. They are largely autonomous non profit agencies who are allies in the larger movement.

Black lives matter, the group, has numerous chapters, which are part of a larger network.

This is why I find these Soros links very misleading.

According to the conservative talk circuit, George Soros funds everything "wrong" and "liberal".

For those that may not know, The Washington Times is like reading the New York Post or the Daily Mail. Take it with a grain of salt.

It's interesting to note that nothing in the way of evidence ever pops up about all this money that's doled out.

It's really an offense to the numerous autonomous Black organizations doing some real groundwork to lump them all in the same dump with Soros which denies their autonomy.

One of the major reasons I cut my time here and elsewhere debating with folks unless we doing some real Building. There are a lot of really dedicated Black people who ain't bought or sold out to anyone and it's really unfair and an injustice to brand and label them all as the same. Especially considering how diverse the "network" really is. But there are some underlying issues at work here which I won't go into just yet.
