    Causing division and stoking the flames of hatred seems to have profited BLM founder Patrice Cullors:

    Patrisse Khan-Cullors, the 37-year-old social justice agitator and co-founder of the controversial Black Lives Matter movement, just purchased a home for $1.4 million in Topanga Canyon in Los Angeles.

    Black Lives Matter supporters would be justified in questioning where the $1.4 million came from.

    “BLM founder is branded a ‘FRAUD’ after buying a $1.4 million home in an upscale mostly white enclave in LA,” the DailyMailUK reported. “The district in which the BLM founder will now live is 88% white and 1.8% black. Critics accused her of abandoning her social justice and activist roots.”

    Cullors, an open Marxist, co-founded BLM in 2013 in response to George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin."

    At least the donors to the cause can finally see where their money is going, and who it's benefitting.

    People will still unironically think she is oppressed.

    Things like this are what cause a movement to stop.

    I mean, that money could have been used to get poor people out of jail who are only in jail because they are poor.

    This is how Marxist leaders live. Should be no surprise.

    It's just how people are.

    You cannot expect people to be like God, you'll always be let down.

    Sad to say, but this doesn't surprise me at all.

    Especially in a country where a hustle is an acceptable way of living, calling itself free enterprise. But she no doubt learned from the best. There are tent revival folks kicking themselves.

    No country is "clean", money is the secular god.

    Exactly! Not much different than any "trained Marxist" who is a national or international figure. They turn people against each other and convince everyone to take on the role of victim while declaring themselves to be the great uniter, and then they live the high life they claimed to despise others for living--and they do it with the money of the people they turned against each other.

    It's a sign of what we can expect from any other Marxist/Socialist who is taking the country downhill. All the woke-speak and cancel culture stems from such thinking. Can we survive 4 years of it?

    Now that people are seeing this, I wonder how many will show up for the protests and beat each other's brains out under the assumption that they're victims of white people. I also wonder how many people will come to her defense with, "She's a successful woman. Why shouldn't she be able to enjoy it just like white people do?"

    The same amount that fill evangelical coffers and still attend church without ever getting a ride on the private plane or a poolside invitation to the mansion.

    I assume big tech believes she should be allowed to do as she wishes with the money they've given in exchange for co-operation.

    I wonder what is next? A stand in on the View, on the cover of Vogue, or perhaps an interview with Harry and Meghan? I'd hum the theme Movin' on Up from the Jeffersons, but that would be disrespectful to the honest hard working folks depicted in the sitcom.

    It's not like white rich people get their fortune through honest means either.

    The BLM Movement isn't about a moral high ground, it's more about holding society accountable for treating them unfairly.

    If a white pastor did the same thing with the donations there'd be a similar reaction.

    So the uproar and result is in a way fair treatment.
