'Socialist' BLM Founder Earned Millions from Black Lives Matter, Report Shows
Patrisse Khan-Cullors profited massively through 'woke' activism
Patrisse Cullors, the self-described "Marxist" co-founder of Black Lives Matter, has earned millions from pushing socialism and "social justice" activism, according to a new report.
As Neon Nettle reported, it emerged late last week that Cullors has just purchased a $1.4 million lavish new home in an exclusive California neighborhood that only has a population of 1.4% black residents.
Following a backlash, further reports revealed that the property purchase was just the latest in a string of home purchases that adds to Cullors' extravagant $3.4 million real estate portfolio.
Now, further reports indicate that the anti-capitalist activist is earning a fortune via her corporate consulting firm which rides off the back of her lucrative activism career by training companies on how to be more "woke."
According to journalist and former college professor Asra Q. Nomani, Cullors and her spouse Janaya Khan set up “a good capitalist consulting firm” that monetizes invented buzzwords that they marketed to corporate America and other far-left organizations.
The New York Post is also reporting that, as part of her real estate empire, Cullors also purchased a home near Atlanta, which suggests the couple are not going to boycott Georgia over the new voting law.
The Post also notes that Khan-Cullors “eyed” property at an exclusive celebrity Albany resort in the Bahamas where homes purportedly sell in the range of $5 million to $20 million.
“People who buy at the Albany are buying their fourth or fifth home,” an insider at the resort supposedly told the Post.
"This is not a second-home residence.
"It’s extremely high-end, and people are coming here for complete and total privacy."
The initial revelation about the $1.4m Topango Canyon home raised a lot of eyebrows.
It also could serve as a reminder perhaps that socialism doesn’t put the one-percenters out of business; it just creates a new elite group at that tier that can exploit their position.
People are free to live where they want to live and invest where they want to invest, assuming they can afford it.
The question here seems to be whether this particular scenario is consistent with lecturing about social justice.
“The AP reported that Black Lives Matter took in $90 million in donations last year,” The Daily Mail noted.
"It’s not clear if or how Cullors is paid by the organization, as its finances are opaque."
Asra Q. Nomani, who co-founded the Muslim Reform Movement, exposed Cullors' lucrative business in a Twitter thread.
“‘Freedom fighter’ Patrice Cullors and ‘staunch Afrofuturist’ Janaya Khan exploit their association with Black Lives Matter to monetize themselves…as capitalists,” Nomani explains.
Nomani opined that the duo followed a traditional path of other consultants by going with a lot of splashy, feel-good but ultimately empty rhetoric.
“‘Transforming Organizations One Strategic Planning Session at a Time’,” one tweet reads.
"In the time honored tradition of (capitalist) consulting firms, they monetize ‘strategic planning,’ ‘media + narrative building,’ and ‘intervention’ and ‘cultural shift work.’ Or gobbledygook."

While the father of Michael Brown got little financial support from the protests over his son’s death, Patrice Cullors monetized #BlackLivesMatter by registering her consulting firm on Aug. 11, 2016, with the Calif Secretary of State. pic.twitter.com/QhCyjkhHgL— Asra Q.

Janaya & Patrice collected at least $76,995 through 19 payments in 2019 from “Real Justice PAC,” where she was a leader along with controversial Shaun King. They led “Reform LA Jails” and opened jails.— Asra Q. Nomani (@AsraNomani) April 10, 2021

While acknowledging negative feedback, Nomani also thanked people for expressions of support as she posted this information.
Thanks for all of the kind words and support, as the followers of Patrice Cullors respond with...real eloquence. “Idiot,” “racist piglet,” “asshole,” “STFU.” They think they can intimidate people but remember: stand up always unapologetically with intellectual courage and clarity pic.twitter.com/I1Fq421NYP— Asra Q.

Meanwhile, Michael Brown Sr. and other Ferguson, Mo., activists, last month demanded an accounting from BLM, according to BizPac Review.
And this week, the leader of Black Lives Matter's New York City wing is demanding an investigation into the finances of BLM after co-founder Cullors' multi-million dollar "real estate-buying binge" was recently exposed.
