The self-professed “trained Marxist” Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors was recently exposed for a multi-million dollar property binge of hers. The properties were purchased via corporate entities, indicating that she didn’t want the public to know about them.
Cullors purchased four high-end homes for a total of $3.2 million according to property records. Last month she purchased a $1.4 million home – showing solidarity with her community by doing so in a Los Angeles town that’s 1.4% black and 88% white.
Hilariously, Cullors’ justification for these purchases amounts to her effectively arguing “I want to help the black community, and I’m black and this helps me, so therefore it helps the black community” when addressing them.
I’m paraphrasing of course, but what she literally says isn’t far off. After host Marc Lamont Hill pointed out how un-Marxist it is for an anti-capitalist to own multiple properties, Cullors reponded: “I think that is critique that is wanting, and I say that because the way I live my life is in direct support to Black people, including my Black family members. For so many Black folks who are able to invest in themselves and their community, they choose to invest in their family. And that’s what I have chosen to do.”
She then continued to justify her actions by seemingly arguing that she’s the only person to have both family, and family that suffers hardships. “I have a child, I have a brother with severe mental illness that I have to take care of, I support my mother and I support many family members of mine. So I see my money as not my own, I see it as my family’s money as well.”
Former slave Booker T. Washington predicted the likes of Cullors over 100 years ago in his 1911 book “My larger Education” when he wrote “There is a class of [black] people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the [black] race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs-partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want [blacks] to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
And the numbers back up his prophecy.
Black Lives Matter had an epic fundraising year in 2020, bringing in over $90 million. That money was raised through the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, which said it committed $21.7 million in grant funding to official and unofficial BLM chapters, and 30 black-led organizations. They still had $60 million in cash on hand by the end of 2020.
Just think about how many homes you could buy with that kind of money!
