Head Of New York City’s Black Lives Matter Chapter Calls For An Investigation Of Organization’s Co-Founder After She Spent $3M On Four Homes

The head of NYC’s #BLM chapter is reportedly asking for an “independent investigation” after the organization’s co-founder, Patrisse Khan-Cullors, purchased four lavish homes totaling $3.2 million, @nypost reports citing property records.

Patrisse has purchased a total of four homes with the most recent purchase being last month for $1.4 million, right outside of Malibu, California.

“The 2,370 square-foot property features “soaring ceilings, skylights and plenty of windows” with canyon views. The Topanga Canyon homestead, which includes two houses on a quarter acre, is just one of three homes Khan-Cullors owns in the Los Angeles area, public records show,”  New York Post reports.

Once that info became public knowledge—Hawk Newsome, the head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City— wanted to know where the funds were coming from.

He stated, “If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes.” Newsome continued, “It’s really sad because it makes people doubt the validity of the movement and overlook the fact that it’s the people that carry this movement.”

In October Patrisse signed  “a multi-platform” deal with Warner Bros. Television Group to help curate content for “black voices who have been historically marginalized,” according to the NY Post.

Founded in 2013, it’s reported that the organization took in $90 million in 2020, including $21.7 million committed to grant funding.

Black Lives Matter leaders didn’t specify how much money they took in from prominent donors, according to the AP report.

Also, according to reports, Khan-Cullors’ salary’s unknown because the finances are split among non-profit-and for-profit entities.
