Marxist BLM Founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors has reportedly gone on a massive real-estate buying spree – dropping more than $3 million on four homes, including a $1.4 personal home in a very wealthy Los Angeles area.
“Thirty-seven-year-old Patrisse Khan-Cullors went on a real estate-buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records,” The New York Post reported Sunday.
The progressive activist was also eyeing a spot in an “ultra-exclusive” resort in the Bahamas, where high profile celebrities such as musician Justin Timberlake and iconic golfer Tiger Woods both have homes.
The Post detailed:
“Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37, also eyed property in the Bahamas at an ultra-exclusive resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods both have homes, The Post has learned. Luxury apartments and townhouses at the beachfront Albany resort outside Nassau are priced between $5 million and $20 million, according to a local agent.
The self-described Marxist last month purchased a $1.4 million home on a secluded road a short drive from Malibu in Los Angeles, according to a report. The 2,370 square-foot property features “soaring ceilings, skylights and plenty of windows” with canyon views. The Topanga Canyon homestead, which includes two houses on a quarter acre, is just one of three homes Khan-Cullors owns in the Los Angeles area, public records show.”
Khan-Cullors new $1.4 million home in a secluded area of Los Angeles, is also in an area where the population is reportedly less than 2% black.
“A secluded mini-compound tucked into L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon was recently sold for a tad more than $1.4 million to a corporate entity that public records show is controlled by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37-year-old social justice visionary and co-founder of the galvanizing and, for some, controversial Black Lives Matter movement,” dirt.com reported.
News of Khan-Cullors’ sudden real estate empire, though, is not sitting well with other racial justice activists who, on Sunday, blasted the Black Lives Matter co-founder for profiting off black Americans’ plight and of being a “fraud.”
“For somebody that claims to love Black people, it’s kinda strange that she chose a place to live that’s practically devoid of Black people,” one Twitter user noted.
“She capitalized on that ‘Injustice against Black People’ bag. They’ve been scamming since day 1,” another suggested.
“Another Twitter user called Cullors a ‘fraud’ and said her brand of ‘Marxism’ apparently included buying a $1.4 million house.”
Khan-Cullors could be facing more than just fierce online criticism over the spending, however.
According to the Post, “Hawk Newsome, the head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City, called for ‘an independent investigation’ to find out how the global network spends its money.”
“If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes,” Newsome said. “It’s really sad because it makes people doubt the validity of the movement and overlook the fact that it’s the people that carry this movement.”
But Black Lives Matter, faces backlash over its own financial decisions after revealing, earlier in 2021, that it raked in a shocking $90 million over the course of 2020, following the death of George Floyd.
The foundation told the Associated Press, when it revealed its 2020 largesse, that it was in the process of creating “infrastructure” that would help to handle doling out the donations to community organizations and racial justice groups.
“One of our biggest goals this year is taking the dollars we were able to raise in 2020 and building out the institution we’ve been trying to build for the last seven and a half years,” Khan-Cullors told the AP.
“We want to uplift Black joy and liberation, not just Black death,” the group said. “We want to see Black communities thriving, not just surviving.”
But, in recent weeks, the national BLM organization has faced questions about its transparency and its spending.
“A group of 10 chapters, called the #BLM10, rejected the foundation’s funding offer last year and complained publicly about the lack of donor transparency. Foundation leaders say only a few of the 10 chapters are recognized as network affiliates,” the Associated Press reported.
“In a letter released Nov. 30, the #BLM10 claimed most chapters have received little to no financial resources from the BLM movement since its launch in 2013. That has had adverse consequences for the scope of their organizing work, local chapter leaders told the AP.”
On top of that, BLM is reportedly refusing to pay any serious money to the so-called martyrs they are using for their fundraising.
Similar to George Floyd, Mike Brown was killed in a police-involved shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, sparking a wave of donations to national BLM. Brown’s family revealed in March, however, that they had received only $500 from the group which already admitted to having more than $90 million in their war chest.
