In recent days, Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors has been facing a severe backlash “after news broke of a real estate ‘buying binge,’ that saw the high-profile racial justice activist ‘snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone,’ just as questions mount about how national Black Lives Matter spent the tens of millions it collected in 2020.” As The Daily Wire reported on Sunday, Khan-Cullors splashed out millions on four homes “totaling upwards of $3.2 million.” In response, the Black Lives Matter movement released a statement on Twitter on Tuesday, saying that “Patrisse Cullors is the Executive Director of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF),” and that “She serves in this role in a volunteer capacity and does not receive a salary or benefits.” The statement described a “false and defamatory article being amplified by right-wing media.” “Patrisse has received a total of $120,000 since the organization’s inception in 2013, for duties such as serving as spokesperson and engaging in political education work.
