Since the beginning of the official Black Lives Matter organization, one of the group’s co-founders has spent over $3 million on multiple luxurious homes across the United States, as reported by the New York Post.
The 37-year-old Patrisse Khan-Cullors has bought several homes in California and Georgia since 2016. Her most recent purchase was a 2,370-square foot home in Malibu, Los Angeles last month, consisting of two separate houses on a larger “ranch” property, worth approximately $1.4 million.
In 2020, Khan-Cullors and her wife Janaya Khan purchased a property in Conyers, Georgia, for about $415,000. That home contains three bedrooms, two baths, an indoor swimming pool, and an RV shop, as well as its own runway and private hangar. Khan-Cullors purchased this home shortly after publishing her book, “When They Call You a Terrorist.”
Back in 2016, shortly after their marriage, the couple bought a home in Inglewood, California for $510,000. That house features three bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, and is now estimated to be worth at least $800,000. In 2018, they purchased a 1,725-square foot four-bedroom house for approximately $590,000. The home, located in South Los Angeles, is now estimated to be worth around $720,000.
In addition to their excessive domestic spending, the couple has also been seen touring possible properties for purchase in the Bahamas, specifically at a resort called The Albany.
The revelations have led to some in the Black Lives Matter movement condemning Khan-Cullors and demanding an investigation. Among the critical voies is Hawk Newsome, the leader of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City, who called for “an independent investigation” into the official Black Lives Matter organization’s finances to determine how much of the money sent to the group via donations is going directly to Khan-Cullors and its other leaders.
Pointing out the Khan-Cullors is a self-described Marxist, Newsome added that “if you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes…it makes people doubt the validity of the movement.” Newsome also demanded that such an investigation be carried out by “black firms and black accountants” who will “go in there and find out where the money is going.”
