After dirt.com reported that a Black Lives Matter co-founder bought a million-dollar home in a virtually all-white area, she was slammed by black commentators.
The report said that the home worth $1.4 million is in a “secluded mini-compound tucked into L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon.” The home was sold to “a corporate entity that public records show is controlled by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37-year-old social justice visionary and co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement.” Cullors was caught on video bragging about being a “trained Marxist”:
“We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk,” Cullors said in the interview with Jared Ball of The Real News Network.
Patrisse Khan-Cullors was immediately slammed on social media after the news broke about her purchasing the house in a virtually all-white area:
Outkick’s Jason Whitlock commented, “Black Lives Matter founder buys $1.4 million home in Topanga, which has a black population of 1.4%. She’s with her people!”
Jamil Jivani, the founder of the Policing Literacy Initiative, echoed, “I can’t believe how badly some people got played by BLM. Wow.”
