BLM co-founder faces scrutiny over series of home purchases totaling $3.2M

One of the key architects of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, which contributed to more than $1 billion in property damage in last summer’s riots, is finding that activism pays off.

“Trained Marxist” and BLM co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors has purchased four homes since 2016, Breitbart reports, for a combined $3.2 million.

In her latest buy, she picked up a $1.4 million “secluded mini-compound” in Topanga Canyon, California, not far from Malibu, Dirt.com reported.

A million-dollar mansion

Her new quarter-acre property features a guest house and “an expansive backyard,” the Daily Mail notes.

Khan-Cullors has purchased three other homes since 2016, the New York Post reports, and was recently looking at multi-million dollar properties at an “ultra-exclusive resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods both have homes” in the Bahamas.

In 2020, she bought a $415,000 “custom ranch” in rural Georgia that features an indoor pool and a private airplane hangar, according to Breitbart.

Khan-Cullors also own two more homes in the Los Angeles area: in 2018, she bought a $590,000 home in South Los Angeles now worth $720,000, and in 2016, a $510,000 home in Inglewood now worth $800,000.

A professional activist

Khan-Cullors, who grew up poor in Los Angeles, is the author of the 2018 memoir, When They Call You a Terrorist. According to the Daily Mail, she started BLM, which positions itself as anti-capitalist and “anti-racist,” with Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi in 2013, after the acquittal of George Zimmerman.

The activist once described herself as a “trained Marxist,” but her lifestyle is a touch bougie for the moniker, according to Hank Newsome, leader of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City.

“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 told the New York Post. “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.”

Khan-Cullors’ revenue stream is unclear given the shadowy non-profit infrastructure of BLM, the Post notes. The group told reporters earlier this year that it raked in $90 million in donations in 2020, as its influence grew to new heights amid the unrest that followed George Floyd’s death and that caused well over $1 billion in property damage, according to Axios.

For Khan-Cullors, as for so many professional activists, “social justice” aligns pretty well with private advantage. It would be shocking, if it weren’t so banal.

  2. Under scrutiny only. Buy no investigation. Because if she were to be charged with a crime that would be racist.

  3. BLM has been nothing more then a way to do what THEY like to do, get violent, rape, murder, loot and destruction make a lot of money and get away with it, playing the race card ALWAYS. They have brain washed many week minded people over the past six decades crying whites being races while they continued to say and commit races acts against whites. I am knocking on 70s door I’ve been around them all my life, I know their game unfortunately, many haven’t sean what most of them, not all is about or are just plain stupid. That “B” is Rich at the cost of destruction/death, when are the white people going to wise up and stop them ????

    1. Greta has this person spot on…where in the world did she manage this little money trick…if she donated all the money to repair what her group has torn down she would be living in a normal house….this little game smells bad

  4. Agree with all posts! Kullors saw the Floyd farce as a way to bilk the black community ! She is getting HER money, probably tax free, because blm is supposedly a “ non profit” organization. She should have to re unburdened all the people who were negatively impacted by the riots her people and antifa did, and are doing! Both are domestic terror organizations!

  5. Shock Shock and more shock not really. She is part of the 7% of the 13% and it shows us how much she and the rest of the idiots are concerned about black
    lives. this whole B.S. is fake news like cbs, cnn and all of the others who lied and helped the demoncRATs steal the election. Like hunter China biteme will not be prosecuted because it does not fit the fake news and networks.
    Just like g floyd family if they had the choice of having him alive or the 27 + million I can guess which they would pick.
    All of these career criminals like m. brown, t. martin, and the other 99% that were shot by the officers if they had acted like civilized human beings they would still be alive today. Then the Nation Felon League, mlb and the other sport teams would not have names to print on the helmets or courts, With all the fine upstand people they could put on their helmets like jason Whitlock, Charles Paine and many many more they choose career criminals to put on their helmets. People will wise up I just hope it is in time.
