Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder Patrisse Cullors has stepped down amid controversy surrounding her newly acquired $3.2 million dollar real estate portfolio. Cullors said the move was planned at least one year in advance so she could focus more on her upcoming book and Warner Bros. TV deal. The controversial social justice warrior said that “right-wing attacks” concerning her expensive homes did not cause her to step down. Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation previously released statements denying that Cullors made enough money for them to fund a lavish lifestyle.
The reality here is that it simply does not matter that Patrisse Cullors resigned. BLMGNF can release whatever statements or documents that they want but that doesn’t matter either. Actually, the statements released by Cullors and BLMGNF simply serve to distract and confuse rather than to inform. The issue with Cullors’ multi-million dollar real estate buying binge had nothing to do with embezzling money from an organization. It also had nothing to do with receiving too high of a paycheck. The problem is that Patrisse Cullors is a self-described Marxist and social justice advocate using BLM to enrich herself.
The cost of Cullors’ enrichment is laid at the feet of the American people, not some random corporate entity like “Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation”. BLM and BLM-affiliated groups raised $10.6 billion dollars in six months after George Floyd died in Minneapolis. In that same period of time, and still, until this day, crime has risen through the roof in many major cities across the country. Portland, Oregon has seen the highest increase in its homicide rate with an 800% jump. BLM and ANTIFA were famously allowed to riot there for over one hundred days. Death, chaos, and destruction are the clear result in Portland and the same case (although to a lesser extent) can be seen all over the United States.
