Patrisse Khan-Cullors, one of the founders of the domestic terrorist group Black Lives Matter, reportedly shelled out millions for several homes in mostly-white areas of Los Angeles. Khan-Cullors began purchasing these homes as violent protests devastated major U.S. cities last summer.
Last week, a report emerged that that the “37-year-old social justice visionary” had purchased a $1.4 million compound in Topanga, a remote, majority-white neighborhood tucked into the Santa Monica mountains.
By Los Angeles standards, $1.4 million will not buy you a mansion, though the “trained Marxist” received immense backlash for failing to spend her small fortune in an area with a greater black population. The Black Lives Matter movement constantly urges its members to “buy black” in an effort to show support for black entrepreneurship.
However, it’s been reported that Khan-Cullors is not new to the real estate market. The radical activist began purchasing real estate in 2016 when she acquired a home for $510,000 in the mostly-black neighborhood of Inglewood. The property is now worth more than $800,000. In 2017, Khan-Cullors bought a home in South Los Angeles for a reported $590,000, now worth upwards of $700,000. It doesn’t stop there: the BLM leader reportedly owns a compound in rural Georgia that features a private airplane hangar and guest studio.
Khan-Cullors and spouse Janaya Khan have gone international in their real estate pursuits. The two are currently eyeing a property in an ultra-exclusive resort in the Bahamas. Celebrities like Justin Timberlake and Tiger words both have homes there.
She and the other Black Lives Matter co-founders revealed they were “trained Marxists” who are ” super-versed” on “ideological theories.” However, when it comes to the real estate market, Khan-Cullors seems just fine with making a profit.
The reports of her real estate purchases prompted some high-ranking activists to question the financial dealings of the Black Lives Matter organization. Khan-Cullors is hardly the first domestic terrorist to cash in. Many of Black Lives Matter founding members have scored lucrative endorsement deals, earning them millions.
