BLM Cofounder Just Bought Some Fancy New Digs

Over the past year since the death of George Floyd, a ton of money has flooded into the Black Lives Matter coffers from all kinds of sources and companies trying to virtue signal that they care about black people.

Of course, if you really cared about black people, giving money to Black Lives Matter would be one of the worst ways to show it. Black Lives Matter’s “protests” have been connected to hundreds of riots and a lot of damage that harmed a lot of black people and their neighborhoods. But that would require companies to actually pay attention and truly be concerned.

But it’s perhaps not surprising then to read some interesting news about Patrisse Cullors, one of the founders of the BLM. Maybe “woke” doesn’t always mean “broke,” and sometimes social justice pays off.

Turns out Cullors, who now goes by Kahn-Cullors after marrying Janaya Khan, who is the co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, just bought some new digs. It’s not a revolutionary cell type of place either. A corporate entity that she controls just shelled out more than $1.4 million for a mini-compound in Topanga Canyon in Los Angeles.

From Dirt:

A winding 15 minute drive from The Commons at Calabasas and a slightly longer and somewat less serpentine drive from Malibu’s Getty Villa, the pint-sized compound spans about one-quarter of an acre. The property’s not-quite 2,400 square feet is divided between the a three-bedroom and two-bath main house and a separate one-bed/one-bath apartment capable of hosting guests long term with a private entry and a living room with kitchenette.

Interior spaces feature bamboo floors and, in the spacious open-plan living room, dining area and kitchen, vaulted ceilings clad in knotty pine. A whitewashed raised hearth brick fireplace anchors the living room and numerous skylights baths the cavernous space with natural light.

It even comes with a bedroom with a sitting area and a vaulted ceiling.

Now, we would note it’s not Beverly Hills and $1.4 million is probably on the cheaper side in that area.

But it’s interesting to note that the demographics of the area are only about 1.4% black people there. So not exactly living up to her creed there.

Remember this is the same woman who confessed that she was a “trained Marxist” buying this expensive pad. Some people are more equal than others.

We should note that grassroots BLM folks have registered a complaint against the leadership including Khan-Cullors because they felt their opinion wasn’t being taken into consideration, they were getting scant money and there wasn’t transparency as to where the money was going.
