While Black Lives Matter protesters have spent over a year destroying public property and looting local businesses, all in the name of a better tomorrow, it appears that their co-founder, Patrisse Cullors, was busy using funds to do nothing but make her own life more comfortable. Recently, the New York Post wrote a hard-hitting piece about how Cullors prospered off the lives of dead black people. Instead of helping those lives she supposedly cried for, she used the money to buy four mansions and is apparently buying a fifth one in the Bahamas.
As the story of her financial scandal broke, Cullors found it no better time to announce that she was stepping down from BLM to focus more on herself. And by that, she means her upcoming book deal and who could forget about her TV deal with Warner Brothers.
According to Cullors, her exiting BLM has nothing to do with the scandal and has supposedly been planned for a year. Yet, within her last year, Cullors has done nothing but focus on the housing market. Although the millionaire-Marxist claims the housing market is full of white supremacists and is completely racist, all the homes Cullors purchased were located in white neighborhoods.
And as for her home in the Bahamas, not only is it located in a luxury resort where homes sell for anywhere between $5 million and $20 million, but it also plays home to icons like Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods.
Even at the height of the BLM protests, Cullors was too busy building her own 3.2-acre “ranch” in Conyers, Georgia. While not her largest purchase, the property does come with a private airplane hangar and a 2,500-foot runway.
It should also be noted that criticism of Cullors’s spending isn’t just coming from conservative outlets. The head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City, Hawk Newsome, called for an independent investigation into the global BLM finances and how the network uses its money. He said, “If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes. 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.”
Newsome’s comments apparently sat wrong with Cullors as she not only threatened legal action against someone who shares her belief, but she also added that Newsome has no right to use the name of BLM. It appears the only way to use the BLM name is to funnel funds for your own personal gain while cheating your own people out of a better life.
As it stands, Cullors is set to leave BLM on May 28th, but that is always subject to change. Who knows, Cullors might need a new set of cabinets for her five mansions.
