The co-founder of the polarizing Black Lives Matter movement is under fire for buying a $1.4 million home in a posh California neighborhood that’s 88 percent white. It’s an interesting decision for Patrisse Cullors, a self-professed Marxist and race-baiting activist who has paid lip service to promoting black pride. Com, the home is located in Topanga Canyon, an idyllic rustic neighborhood about 48 minutes outside of Los Angeles and less than 30 minutes from tony Malibu. Cullors’ new home has three bedrooms and two baths and sits on one-quarter of an acre.
«Black Lives Matter founder buys $1.4 million home in Topanga, which has a black population of 1.4%. » Whitlock pointed out that Cullors could have lived anywhere, and in fact, she could’ve made an important political statement if she had chosen to live in a predominantly black neighborhood. « She chose one of the whitest places in California,» Whitlock said. Some on social media said Cullors exploited the Black Lives Matter movement to enrich herself.
Black Lives Matter said it raked in a staggering $90 million in donations last year. Similarly, BLM chapters nationwide have demanded more transparency from the centralized umbrella organization for the group. «We, the undersigned chapters, believe that all of these events occurred without democracy, and assert that it was without the knowledge of the majority of Black Lives Matters chapters across the country and world,» the statement read.
