BLM co-founder fighting oppression from four different houses

Patrisse Cullors (BLM co-founder)A co-founder of Black Lives Matter and self-described Marxist is angering fellow leftists for dropping millions of dollars on high-end homes but, in reality, such greediness mirrors famously ruthless and rich Communist leaders who lived in luxury despite denouncing capitalism and leading violent revolutions.

Forbes reported at one time, for example, that one-time jungle revolutionary Fidel Castro had amassed a $900 million fortune decades after jailing and murdering enemies of his Communist revolution, and now BLM leader Patrisse Cullors has reportedly dropped $3.2 million to purchase four homes across the U.S., including a $1.4 million Malibu home in a mostly-white neighborhood.

Cullors (pictured above) and her “wife” Janaya Khan are now the owners of three homes in California and a three-acre home worth $415,000 in Conyers, Georgia.

The New York Post reports Cullors purchased the first home 2016, when BLM was gaining national attention and donations began pouring in. Not done with the house-buying spree, last year Cullors went shopping for a vacation in an exclusive area of the Bahamas, too.

Black Lives Matter protesterCullors has recounted she grew up poor in a California housing project that was a short distance from an affluent white neighborhood called Sherman Oaks. She embraced Marxism at an early age, at age 12, but is now the owner of four homes at age 37.

In a YouTube video she posted late last year, Cullors quotes from and laughs awkwardly at social media posts claiming she is a Marxist but, in the end, states that Marxism is a path to end capitalism which she says oppresses the majority and “uplifts only a few.”

“I’m working on making sure that people don’t suffer. I’m working to make sure people don’t go hungry,” she says. “These comments that I’ve seen have been incredibly hurtful.”

A real estate blog first reported the Marxist leader’s home-buying spree and now fellow BLM activists have taken notice.

cash 100-dollar bill“If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes,” Hawke Newsome, who leads the New York chapter of BLM, complained to the Post.

Newsome, whose chapter does not receive national support, said the finances need to be investigated.

Cullors co-founded Black Lives Matter after protesting the killing of Trayvon Martin, a black teenager. After the death of George Floyd last year, BLM members led protests – and violent riots – around the country, and tens of millions of dollars poured in from sympathetic corporations and from individuals.

At the end of 2020, the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation reported it had collected more than $90 million and ended the year with a balance of more than $60 million, The Associated Press, which reviewed the finances, reported in an exclusive story two months ago.  

Che and FidelThe AP story went on to state that state-level BLM chapters were speaking out after the donations failed to trickle down to the grassroots affiliates after they were formed in 2015, while Cullors claimed the national group had committed approximately $21.7 million to BLM chapters and to 30 black-led groups.

Reacting to the controversy, Project 21 spokesman Horace Cooper says Cullors is following the same path other Marxists in history have followed only to have their own greed discovered. 

“An avowed Marxist with multi-million dollar properties: That looks a lot like the tired, failed history of the 20th Century, where the Marxists and the communists said, Little for you and the world for me,” Cooper says. “This is what that looks like."
