A recent report from New York Magazine exposed the purchase of a $6 million California mansion by the leaders of Black Lives Matter using donated funds.
Patrisse Cullors, who claims she is no longer in a leadership role, came under fire last year for buying a million dollar home which she quickly surrounded with a wall.
This new property is even more lavish and put a spotlight on BLM which is being accused of using donated funds for the personal gain of the people at the top.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Patrisse Cullors blasts ‘despicable’ coverage of BLM’s $6 million mansion
Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors railed against a “despicable” report from a liberal magazine that exposed her charity had purchased a $6 million Los Angeles mansion with donor cash.
“Yesterday’s article in New York Magazine is a despicable abuse of a platform that’s intended to provide truthful information to the public,” Cullors said in a statement Tuesday on her Instagram page. “Journalism is supposed to mitigate harm and inform our communities.”
Cullors then took aim at the New York Magazine investigative journalist Sean Kevin Campbell, the black man who broke the story, accusing him of pushing a “racist and sexist” attack against the BLM movement by reporting about what her group did with its $90 million charitable windfall from 2020.
“That a reputable publication would allow a reporter, with a proven and very public bias against me and other Black leaders, to write a piece filled with misinformation, innuendo and incendiary opinions, is disheartening and unacceptable,” Cullors said.
Wasn’t BLM supposed to use these funds to improve black communities?
This does not seem a proper way to respond to the brutal murder of George Floyd.
“The $6 million property BLM purchased is the third known mansion purchased by the charity and its co-founder since the group raised at least $90 million during the unrest” https://t.co/hd7fVfEr29

For a neo-Marxist group who want to “dismantle capitalism” they sure do love luxury properties. https://t.co/ibMw6SjeN9

Did they really think people wouldn’t find out about this?
