In a statement released Thursday on its website, the Marxist revolutionaries of Black Lives Matter (BLM) announced that co-founder Patrisse Cullors had resigned following widespread outrage about her personal wealth.
“Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF) today announced that BLM Co-Founder and current Executive Director, Patrisse Cullors, would be transitioning from her role, and named two Senior Executives to support the organization,” the statement read.
“With smart, experienced and committed people supporting the organization during this transition, I know that BLMGNF is in good hands,” said Cullors. “The foundation’s agenda remains the same — eradicate white supremacy and build life-affirming institutions. Between the two Senior Executives and BLM Grassroots Co-Director Melina Abdullah, who is an original member of BLM and co-founder of its first chapter in Los Angeles, their immense talent will build a future where Black lives do more than matter — they will truly thrive.”
In recent months revelations had surfaced about Cullors’ multiple real estate purchases, sparking outrage even from some fellow leftists. Cullors claims she had “never taken a salary from the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation,” and that “the fact that the right-wing media is trying to create hysteria around my spending is, frankly, racist and sexist.”
No, it’s called investigative journalism. And the fact that avowed Marxist Cullors’ “spending” included at least 4 homes, including a $1.4 million compound in an upscale area of Los Angeles and a Georgia ranch with an airplane hangar, is called corruption and hypocrisy.
