BLOOD MONEY

Master Card, Visa and other credit card companies are helping hate-mongers personally profit off of their hate. Sign the Petition

The big payment processing companies – Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express – are processing funds for over 100 white supremacist, anti-Muslim, anti-LGBTQ, anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant and other hate groups.

These companies direct funds to the groups responsible for numerous hate crimes, murders and the radicalization of terrorists like Dylann Roof, Timothy McVeigh, Wade Michael Page and Anders Behring Breivik.

Moreover, for every donation or payment processed for these hate groups, these companies take anywhere from 1.4% to 3.5% of the money for themselves. These companies are not just helping white supremacist and other hate groups to raise tens of millions of dollars – they are also profiting off this hate. The money they make off of hate is blood money.

See the data

Across 2014 and 2015, fewer than 20 of the most prominent hate groups collected over $20 million dollars in contributions, sales and grants.

The hundreds of thousands in transaction fees likely paid by hate groups to Master Card, Visa and the other companies are a drop in the bucket out of the tens of billions of dollars in revenue they earn every year. Financially, there is no good reason for these companies to be accepting this blood money.

Who's earning blood money?

It’s hard to know *exactly* how much each organization is earning and how much each payment processing company is making. But we do know which companies hate groups are using to fund themselves.
