Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors purchased a $1.4 million dollar home in the hills of Los Angeles through a corporate entity. Cullors is originally from Los Angeles and her spouse, Janaya Khan, is from Toronto. News of the purchase is interesting to many considering how Black Lives Matter purports itself to be a black-first movement, interested in dismantling “white supremacy and racism”. If those things are true, then critics ask why BLM founders would move away from black people and the “community” to a mostly white area?
The excuse some would give toward the million-dollar home purchase is that Los Angeles (and California in general) is an extremely expensive and competitive real estate market. That is true. $1.4 million dollars in Los Angeles may be the equivalent of $300,000 in southern parts of the United States, depending upon the exact location in Los Angeles. However, if a person has millions of dollars to spare, then surely they could afford to live in Las Vegas or Phoenix rather than Los Angeles. Furthermore, why wouldn’t an activist live in the “community” that they supposedly advocate for? Khan-Cullors is from the Van Nuys area of Los Angeles. She could have purchased a home there, or in South LA by Watts, Crenshaw, Inglewood, etc… but she didn’t.
Black Lives Matter and other similar groups raised $10.6 billion dollars in 2020 after George Floyd’s death. There were even random con-men with no prior online presence who sprung up random Facebook pages that raked in half a million dollars. The social justice industry is huge, even during a so-called pandemic. For people that claim to be so in touch with the black community to literally move very far away from them is of no surprise. At a certain point, with so much money involved, the issues of “inequity” and “racism” become less important to those who scream about it from the mountain tops.
UPDATE: The New York Post reports that Patrisse Khan-Cullors has purchased four homes since 2016 totaling $3.2 million dollars in real-estate spending. The BLM co-founder owns a home in Topanga Canyon, Inglewood, and South Los Angeles, all in Los Angeles County, California. Khan-Cullors also owns a home in Conyers, Georgia which is about a half-hour from Atlanta proper. The Conyers home features a landing strip and airplane hangar with an apartment above it. Khan-Cullors also eyed a multi-million dollar estate in the Bahamas but has not quite sealed that deal.
