Brother of Mansion Enthusiast/BLM Co-Founder Is BLM’s Highest Paid Employee

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, who spent $3.2 million on four luxury properties, and whose organization spent $6 million on a mansion she threw parties at, has also been spending big the family.

According to the Washington Examiner:

The highest-paid employee of the national Black Lives Matter group is Paul Cullors, the brother of the charity’s embattled co-founder Patrisse Cullors, new filings reveal.

Paul Cullors is the head of security at BLM’s $6 million Los Angeles mansion, secretly purchased with donor funds in October 2020. Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation identified Paul Cullors and BLM Operations Director Raymond Howard as the two employees with the “greatest compensation” in its Washington state charity registration application filed on May 11.

Paul is one of three known members of Patrisse’s immediate family to have worked at BLM’s mansion in Los Angeles.

Damon Turner, the father of Cullors’ only child, runs Trap Heals, an art company that did business with BLM and was paid $150,000 to co-produce an election night livestream in November 2022 that expects say would’ve cost a fraction of that to produce. Overall he was paid $970k for “creative services.”

Cullors personally owns a consulting firm called Janaya and Patrisse Consulting, and received monthly payments of up to $20k back in 2019 from Reform LA Jails, a group she used to lead. The “Janaya” is Janaya Khan, Cullors’ spouse. In January the New York Post reported that the BLM Global Network Foundation transferred millions to a Canadian charity run by Khan to purchase a mansion that once was the HQ of the Communist Party for $6.3 million in 2021.

In response to the increased scrutiny of BLM’s finances, last month Cullors said that charity transparency laws are both triggering and make her unsafe. “I’m like, ugh. It’s, like, triggering,” she said, stating that she didn’t know what IRS Form 990 was before starting BLM. “This is, like, deeply unsafe. This is literally being weaponized against us, against the people we work with,” she said, further railing against the supposedly oppressive forces of the IRS Form 990. “People’s morale in an organization is so important. But if their organization and the people in it are being attacked and scrutinized at everything they do, that leads to deep burnout. That leads to deep, like, resistance and trauma.”

Candace Owens showed up at the gate to Cullors’ $1.4 million Los Angeles mansion earlier this week and calmly asked to speak to her amid these recent scandals, and then left without incident when denied.

Cullors then released a video of herself crying and claimed to have been shaken by the encounter, appearing even more shook by Candace than by the dreaded IRS Form 990.
