Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement has no shame. She attempted to defend the fact that she bought a $6 million home with BLM money.
“We looked at commercial buildings, we looked at homes…then we found this really amazing space…that has, yes a home on the property.” How convenient. Oh, and she felt it was somehow helpful to add “but also a sound stage…”

Certainly access to a sound stage will be very beneficial to the equality of Black Americans. Money well spent, no doubt.
The New York Post reports:
BLM faced a torrent of criticism and backlash last month when it publicly emerged that the organization had “secretly” purchased the LA mansion — which boasts a home with six bedrooms and bathrooms, a swimming pool, a soundstage and office space — back in 2020.
At the time, Cullors said the property was purchased by BLM to serve as a meeting venue and campus. She also issued a statement denying suggestions she had lived at the property — or taken advantage of it for personal gain.
But Cullors, who resigned as BLM’s executive director a year ago after spending six years at the helm, said she used the property twice for events that weren’t business related.
Among the parties thrown at the Los Angeles mansion include her son’s birthday party as well as a party to celebrate President Biden’s inauguration.
