BLM leader calls for probe into co-founder’s recent real estate purchases

A leader in the Black Lives Matter movement is calling for an investigation into one of the organization’s co-founders.

According to reports, the head of the greater New York City BLM chapter wants answers in the wake of revelations that Patrisse Khan-Cullors spent more than $3 million on real estate over the span of just a few months.

“It’s the people that carry this movement”

Hawk Newsome questioned the expenditures and wants a deeper probe into how those at the top of the organization spend money.

Last month, Khan-Cullors bought a 2,370-square-foot mansion near Malibu, California, for $1.4 million. She now owns three homes in the greater Los Angeles area.

Although she describes herself as a Marxist and argues wealth should be shared among all people, her spending patterns have led to serious questions about her beliefs and the organization she helped establish.

Newsome has been particularly critical, stating: “If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes.”

He went on to call the situation “really sad,” noting that it “makes people doubt the validity of the movement and overlook the fact that it’s the people that carry this movement.”

Donations and business deals

BLM brought in over $90 million in donations last year, bolstered by a heightened profile in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minnesota and the protests that followed.

The organization has been around since 2013 and was founded after Trayvon Martin was fatally shot by George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of charges related to the teen’s death.

Khan-Cullors signed a multi-platform deal with Warner Bros. last year to produce content for the media company, though it remains unclear where the money for her recent property purchases originated. As for her BLM salary, such information is largely unknown due to the organization’s complex finances and involvement of several related corporate networks.

She also earned an unspecified amount of money for penning her memoir, When They Call You a Terrorist, about two years ago. In addition to the four homes she already owns, Khan-Cullors reportedly looked at a multi-million dollar property in the Bahamas where several other prominent figures already own homes.

The situation highlights one of the major drawbacks to socialism in practice, which often allows leaders to abuse the system by allocating huge sums of money to themselves while others remain impoverished.

  1. I would never donate to any radical group like BLM. You have no idea where that money is going and to whom it is going which this article shows. Buying mansions with your money is not what you counted on.

  2. It is what we have come to expect from Marxists. Only the top echelon can become wealthy, on the backs of those they rule.

  4. Antifa and blm! Are hired by k.Harris and the corrupt demorats. Obo brought Antifa here. Why pervert joe and Harris bailed them out of jails.

  5. And because BLM is the new militant right arm of the democratic party, does anyone actually believe anything will happen!

  6. Agree with all posts! “ black lies matter” is a terrorist organization, along with antifa! Both demonrat backed!

  7. Since the BLM has all this money,why don’t they pay for all the trouble they cause,instead of the all the racist white people who have to pay for all BLM troubles all the time.

  8. The Democrats are so head strong on getting Trump and his taxes. Why aren’t they who are in control in power as strong to get people like this and those that are destroying our nation. Trump sure gave his life for 4 years working in “hell” for our country giving up his salary, etc. and it appears she does nothing except create evil among our country dividing us and makes herself rich for this great divide. Why don’t they have financial people wise enough to audit all her financials and yet they think they have wise enough people to audit Trump. With the Democrats it hate for Trump and love for her. Nothing about what is truth or honest or lawful but all on emotions and choices made by our emotions. Look at John S getting $35K for taping the Capital Jan. 6 deal and Democrats even paid for the video along with CNN and others paying him.

  9. where is the FBI hiding?there sure not in minnesota, there to scared of the terrorist blm looters. the store owners may sue kahn-cullors and the mob blm for the store damages. they do have over 100million dollars in the banks. put a lean on it cause if you don’t kahn-cullors will keep buying up mansions with it. the money is there for the taking, get it all and put the terrorist out of business. and we all know theFBI is scared of the blm.
