Report: Black Lives Matter co-founder has spent over $3 million on four mansions
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.
