Resigning BLM Co Founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors: We Must End Israel
A few weeks ago, I posted about BLM co founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors’ lavish lifestyle, which includes four high-end homes valued at $3.2 million in the US alone.
Now it has been reported she is resigning.
The embattled co-founder of Black Lives Matter announced on Thursday that she’s resigning as executive director amid criticism over her lavish lifestyle.
Patrisse Cullors, 37 — who has been at the helm of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation for nearly six years — said she is leaving to focus on a book and TV deal.
Her last day with the foundation is Friday.
“I’ve created the infrastructure and the support, and the necessary bones and foundation, so that I can leave,” Cullors said. “It feels like the time is right.”
But her resignation comes amid controversy over the group’s finances and Cullors’ personal wealth — including an alleged real estate buying spree in which she snagged four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US, according to property records reported last month.
Meanwhile, video has surfaced of her explicitly calling for an end to the state of Israel.
“Imperialist project”? Hardly how I would describe a people returning to their indigenous homeland. The only empire building going on is her with her properties.
I don’t know how it could be any clearer: the roots of the BLM organization are steeped in antisemitism.
