According to property records obtained by the New York Post, Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors recently went on a multi-million-dollar real estate binge, buying four houses in the U.S. for $3.2 million.
The Post also reports that Khan-Cullors recently eyed million-dollar property in the Bahamas.
Just last month, she purchased a $1.5 million dollar house in a predominately white LA neighborhood.
In 2016, Khan-Cullors bought a home in Inglewood for $510,000. It is now worth nearly $800,000.
In 2018, Khan-Cullors purchased a property in South LA. Khan-Cullors paid $590,000 for the house; it is now worth $720,000, according to public records.
In January 2020, she bought a house in Atlanta, Georgia for $415,000.
Khan-Cullors is receiving harsh backlash for these decisions from social media users:
Not only did self-proclaimed Marxist and BLM co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors purchase a $1.4M home in an 89% white neighborhood, but now it’s been reported she bought THREE more properties totaling $3.2M following a “real-estate buying binge.” Her black life grifts, clearly.

So the co founder of BLM just bought a 1.5 million dollar mansion in one of the whitest neighborhoods in the country. She played her own people, that's a damn shame.

For somebody that claims to love Black people, it's kinda strange that she chose a place to live that's practically devoid of Black people🤔 pic.twitter.com/UluZTLfxNs

This isn’t the first time Khan-Cullors has been accused of grifting off black tragedies for financial gain.
She received criticism in 2018 when she published a book titled “When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir,” and in 2020 when she signed a deal with Warner Bros. TV to create programming to amplify black voices on TV streaming services.
Kahn-Cullors created the Black Lives Matter hashtag in 2013 after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the 2012 shooting of black teenager Trayvon Martin.
The movement grew even more following George Floyd’s death in May 2020.
After facing pressure, the Black Lives Matter organization recently revealed that it had raised $90 million in 2020.
It is unknown how much Khan-Cullors received in compensation.
