They say that crime doesn’t pay but they are wrong. What can you get for a year of assaults, looting, and burning of businesses? Well, if you are BLM co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors it gets you a house for $1.4 million dollars in an exclusive LA neighborhood where less than 2% of the people are black. BLM is thriving on corporate funding of their cause. And evidently, so is their leadership.
1.4 million for the house is just the beginning because I assure you people who pay that much for a house do not buy their furniture at Ikea. Black commentators have been quick to condemn Khan-Cullors for the purchase. The house is in a secluded enclave tucked into L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon.
Outkick’s Jason Whitlock commented.
“Black Lives Matter founder buys $1.4 million home in Topanga, which has a black population of 1.4%. She’s with her people!”

“Well, I compare Black Lives Matter to the KKK. I really do. And some people don’t understand it, but if you go back to the 1860s, after the Emancipation Proclamation, the KKK was started, and it was the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party. And what’s the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party right now?”
“Black Lives Matter and Antifa. They will come to your home and violate your home, try to intimidate the people in your home if they disagree with you politically.”
“Black Lives Matter [is] a Marxist organization. Marxism is hostile towards religion; that’s why I’m glad you went there today. These are atheist values being expressed from our leaders, demonizing individual citizens here in America, branding them as white supremacists because they decided, because we disagree with their opinion about something. This is lunacy. And it’s dangerous.”
I can't believe how badly some people got played by BLM.

Whitlock blasted veteran NBA player Kyle Korver, who published a lengthy article in which he spoke of race relations while issuing an apology for his “white privilege,” writing:
The fact that black Americans are more than five times as likely to be incarcerated as white Americans is wrong. The fact that black Americans are more than twice as likely to live in poverty as white Americans is wrong. The fact that black unemployment rates nationally are double that of overall unemployment rates is wrong. The fact that black imprisonment rates for drug charges are almost six times higher nationally than white imprisonment rates for drug charges is wrong. The fact that black Americans own approximately one-tenth of the wealth that white Americans own is wrong. The fact that inequality is built so deeply into so many of our most trusted institutions is wrong. And I believe it’s the responsibility of anyone on the privileged end of those inequalities to help make things right.
