There’s a lot of interesting information to drop on BLM co-founder and executive director, Patrisse Cullors, today.
We’ve spoken before about how she’s claimed to be a trained Marxist.
But now there’s video out, allegedly from 2010, and it really says something about the workings of her mind.
Cullors talks about a man complimenting her book and comparing it to “Mao’s Red Book,” how that’s “really cool,” that she encouraged him to buy more of the books, have a group discussion, and bring in more people.

I’m not sure which book is being referenced there in 2010. She has two books listed on Amazon. One of which hasn’t come out yet and the other one came out three years ago. But imagine thinking that’s a favorable comparison, to be compared to Mao’s Little Red Book.
For those who may not be familiar with it, Mao’s book contained the sayings of Chairman Mao. It was also what the Red Guard wielded against people who were non-compliant with the party order, as the Guard abused them and harassed them. Rabid youth roamed the streets going after those they thought went against the Communist orthodoxy.
Here’s a little refresher on the madness of the Cultural Revolution during which time it is believed 1.5 million were killed. Many others were imprisoned or otherwise oppressed by the Communists. Not exactly “cool.”
Cullors is the one who made the comparison to her own book. Is that what she’s trying to do with BLM? Turn it into today’s “Red Guard?”
She says she came into the “movement” at 17. What “movement” is she talking about there? Marxism? Communism? BLM didn’t start until 2013.
While she pushes this ideology, she’s also been busted for her real estate binge since she founded BLM. As we reported, she has four houses and was looking at potentially another one in the Bahamas. Pretty capitalistic there, for a trained Marxist. Of course, it’s a common thing for Communist leaders to preach one thing and then do another, preaching the ideology of everything in common while aggregating power and wealth to themselves. So maybe she’s just following in their footsteps.
Now there’s more information on that front as well. According to the Daily Caller, Cullors once had a relationship with a man who is the father of her one child, Damon Turner. She’s now with Janaya Khan, who identifies as “non-binary.” But the Caller is reporting that Cullors gave business from BLM to a company led by Turner.
The company, Trap Heals, was formed just days before partnering with Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation and later became the charity’s “lead developer of the art & cultural efforts,” according to business records, interviews and an archived version of Trap Heals’ website. Two other activist groups Cullors led paid Trap Heals a collective $238,000 to produce an election night livestream and for consulting services, campaign finance records show.
In numerous public mentions of their work, Cullors and Turner did not disclose that they had a child together. But in at least one instance, Turner said Cullors was directly involved in Trap Heals’ partnership with BLM Global Network.
The Daily Caller then explained how much went out to consultants versus how much has been distributed to the activist groups in the streets carrying out their actions. As we’ve previously reported, activists in the street have demanded a greater accounting of where the money is going.
The local BLM groups’ accusation followed a DCNF report that BLM Global Network spent a combined $4.5 million on payroll, consultants and travel in its 2017, 2018 and 2019 fiscal years, a figure that encompassed 83.3% of the group’s total spending during the three-year period, according to audited financial statements prepared by its former fiscal sponsor, Thousand Currents, a California-based charity.
During the same time period, however, BLM Global Network provided only $328,000 to outside organizations, the financial statements show, such as the local, independent and autonomous BLM chapters across the country that, according to Cullors, are the ones responsible for carrying out the group’s mission.
That’s also not exactly “cool.” Especially if the leaders have relationships with the people who are being paid as consultants.
