The Black Lives Matter movement is linked to more than nine-in-ten riots across the country, according to a recent study.
The U.S. experienced 637 riots between May 26 and Sept. 12, and 91% of those riots were linked to the Black Lives Matter movement, according to the US Crisis Monitor, a joint project of the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project and the Bridging Divides Initiative at Princeton University.
Forty-nine states, not counting Washington, D.C., experienced riots during that time period, the study found. California led the nation with 86 riots during that time, closely followed by Oregon with 79 riots during that time period, the data show.
Seven percent of Black Lives Matter-linked events have turned violent, according to the data.
The project defined riots as demonstrations in which any demonstrators engage in violently disruptive or destructive acts (e.g. violence, looting, vandalism, etc.), as well as mob violence in which violent mobs target other individuals, property, businesses, or other groups.
Black Lives Matter-linked events were defined as: demonstrations that have a local BLM group involved; when the main issue of the demonstration concerns the police killing of a specific Black person (e.g. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor;) when the main issue of the demonstration concerns police brutality against Black people in general; or when the demonstration is in solidarity with the movement in the USA against police brutality against Black people.
Black Lives Matter Global Network, the national arm of Black Lives Matter, has seen an explosion in financial support from celebrities and large corporations since George Floyd died after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes, according to video of the May 25 incident.
Some Black Lives Matter leaders have declined to condemn rioting and looting.

And the other 9% is Antifa.
Well duh! Glad someone did a study to find out something blatantly obvious.
That cant be true..Wray from FBI said white supremacists are the bigger threat and were rioting to make blacks look bad.
LOL, very similar to my first thought too!
Comcast boasted giving $150 million to BLM
Right, white supremacist in black face Mr. Wray.
Maybe we should switch the fbi with the Princeton team, probably get failing grades and get sent home.
“Some” BLM leaders refuse to denounce the violence? Name ONE who HAS!
See? Now we have the mathematical definition of “mostly.”
It is 9%.
Princeton’s admitted the university is racist, so this study must be correct.
How much of the Covid transmissions in the past 3 months have been caused by these Reds in the streets?
Hmmm, ANTIFA should be a much larger percentage of those riots.
The exclusionary math does not work because ANTIFA was the source of the violence for many of the BLM events .
The Princeton & Slavery Project began in 2013, when history professor Martha A. Sandweiss and a team of undergraduate and graduate students started researching topics such as the slaveholding practices of Princeton’s early presidents and trustees, the southern origins of a large proportion of Princeton students during the 18th and 19th centuries, and racial violence in Princeton during the antebellum period.
Beat me to it!
Yet the cash keeps coming in for hundreds of riots from celebs and corporate America. We know that the Dems get a good chunk but I bet that the Marxist leaders are drinking very good wine, wearing designer clothes and taking really nice vacations. Snorting as much as they want needless to say.
I’ve not seen any information regarding the estimated percentage of BLM and Antifa protestors/rioters who are white. Anyone have that info?
But Wray says it’s the white supremacists who are the greater threat.
