The co-founder of the polarizing Black Lives Matter movement is under fire for buying a $1.4 million home in a posh California neighborhood that’s 88 percent white, as per recent demographic numbers.
Patrisse Cullors, who is an out in the open Marxist, has pushed a message of black pride, the black victimization narrative, and lead the sometimes violent BLM movement formed in 2013 in response to George Zimmerman’s acquittal in 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin. Cullor’s organization soaked up millions upon millions of dollars, and nobody is quite sure what BLM actually does besides organizing disruptive and frequently destructive protests, which resulted in over 50 deaths in 2020. These protests, often described by the press as “peaceful”, have caused billions of dollars of destruction across dozens of major cities.
Black Lives Matter said it raked in a staggering $90 million in donations last year.
The communist revolutionary is amassing quite a real estate portfolio, according to the NY Post. Cullor’s bought a $510,000 home in Inglewood in 2016, which is worth about $800,000 today. She also bought a $590,000 home in South Los Angeles that is worth $720,000 today, and bought a ranch in rural Georgia for $415,000 last year, “featuring a private airplane hangar with a studio apartment above it.” Inglewood is a predominantly black neighborhood, however, she has 3 other “white” enclaves to abscond herself.
According to Dirt.com, her latest home is located in Topanga Canyon, an idyllic rustic neighborhood about 48 minutes outside of Los Angeles and less than 30 minutes from Malibu.
Cullors’ new home has three bedrooms and two baths and sits on one-quarter of an acre. The property also has a separate one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest house.
But what is most interesting is that the BLM co-founder chose to live in Topanga, where less than 2 percent(LINK) of the population is black.
The social media social justice mob, having no criticism of their empyrean Marxist saint permitted; immediately had black sports reporter, Jason Whitlock, suspended from Twitter after he sarcastically called out Cullors for her blatant hypocrisy.
“Black Lives Matter founder buys $1.4 million home in Topanga, which has a black population of 1.4%. She’s with her people!” he tweeted Friday.
Shortly after the thought ministers had this tweet removed and suspended Whitlock.
All is not well in BLM-land however as there has been mounting criticism that the movement has not shared its massive haul with the black community.
BLM chapters nationwide have demanded more transparency from the centralized umbrella organization for the group, Zero Hedge pointed out.
In a December 2020 statement, the local chapters said:
“Since the establishment of [Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation], our chapters have consistently raised concerns about financial transparency, decision making, and accountability … we believe public accountability has become necessary.”
The local chapters also said the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation appointed Cullors as its executive director against their wishes and without their knowledge, rendering her leadership illegitimate.
“We, the undersigned chapters, believe that all of these events occurred without democracy, and assert that it was without the knowledge of the majority of Black Lives Matters chapters across the country and world,” the statement read.
“Patrisse Cullors … became Executive Director against the will of most chapters and without their knowledge.”
