One of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement and a “trained Marxist”, Patrisse Khan-Cullors is reported to have purchased at least four homes over the past several years as her activist popularity increased.
The real estate website Dirt.com reported last week that the “37-year-old social justice visionary” Khan-Cullors had bought a $1.4 million estate in Topanga, a secluded Los Angeles neighborhood located deep in the Santa Monica mountains.
The New York Post reported Saturday that she bought a $510,000 home in Inglewood in 2016, which is worth about about $800,000 today. She also bought a $590,000 home in South Los Angeles that is worth $720,000 today, and bought a ranch in Georgia for $415,000 last year, “featuring a private airplane hangar with a studio apartment above it.”
The Post added that Khan-Cullors and spouse Janaya Khan “also eyed property in the Bahamas at an ultra-exclusive resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods both have homes.”
Khan-Cullors announced in 2015 that she and the other Black Lives Matter co-founders were “trained Marxists” who are ” super-versed” on “ideological theories.”
The news of the real estate purchases prompted some activists to call for a financial investigation into Khan-Cullors and the BLM movement’s finances. Tamika Mallory also used her position to increase her own personal finances through product endorsements.
Khan-Cullors wouldn’t be the first Marxist to have success in the real estate market. In 2014, Breitbart News reported on landlords in Santa Monica, California, who were vocal supporters of the Castro regime in Cuba.
