A Black Lives Matter co-founder has been purchasing million-dollar homes in exclusive neighborhoods while BLM protests and riots broke out around the country, The New York Post has revealed in a report.

Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37, purchased four homes for $3.2 million in the U.S. alone, according to property records.

The co-founder’s most recent purchase was a 1.4 million dollar home in Topanga Canyon, where 88% of the residents are white and 1.8% are black, according to the U.S. census.

Khan-Cullors’s Topanga Canyon home reportedly features bamboo flooring, vaulted ceilings, numerous skylights and a spacious open floor plan.

The reports reveal that Khan-Cullors was also considering buying property at an ultra-exclusive resort in the Bahamas.

Many are now labeling Khan-Cullors and the BLM organization as a fraud and are calling for an investigation into the organization’s finances.

“If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes,” Hawk Newsome, the head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City, said. “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 has called for “an independent investigation” of the BLM organization.

Pope Francis calls for universal ban on ‘so-called surrogate motherhood’

Pope Francis called for a universal ban on surrogacy, likening the practice as an unborn child “turned into an object of trafficking.”

“I consider despicable the practice of so-called surrogate motherhood, which represents a grave violation of the dignity of the woman and the child, based on the exploitation of situations of the mother’s material needs,” Francis said in a speech to the Holy See on Monday.

The “uterus for rent” process, as Francis has called it, was estimated to bring in $14 billion in the U.S. in 2022, and is projected to grow to a $129 billion market by 2032. National Review reports Individual surrogacies can cost anywhere from $60,000 to $200,000 plus in the U.S. Rising infertility rates, an increase in the number of fertility clinics, and “sedentary lifestyles” contribute to surrogacy’s recent popularity, according to Global Market Insights.

“A child is always a gift and never the basis of a commercial contract,” Francis continued. “Consequently, I express my hope for an effort by the international community to prohibit this practice universally.”

Surrogacy is already banned in many European countries. In the United States, commercial surrogacy, or for-profit surrogacy, is legal in some states, and the practice has been used by celebrities who are very public with their decision to use surrogacy.

Altruistic surrogacy, the method by which a woman carries another person’s child for no official compensation, is legal in the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, South Africa, Greece, and Iceland, according to the National Institutes of Health.

The speech was about threats to peace and human dignity. “A child is always a gift and never the basis of a commercial contract,” Francis continued. “Consequently, I express my hope for an effort by the international community to prohibit this practice universally.”

Francis also listed Russia’s war on Ukraine, the Israel-Hamas war, climate change, and increased weapons production as great threats to peace on Monday.
