Candace Owens mocks Patrisse Khan-Cullors for home in White neighborhood, 'why not live amongst Black people?'
'Apparently, the ‘Black movement’ was Patrisse moving herself, a Black woman, into other areas of the communities of people that she claims are oppressing Black Americans,' said Owens
When news broke about Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors spending $1.4 million on a Los Angeles property - her fourth home, and her third in the city - she invited a lot of wrath from social media users. What they found worth noting is that Khan-Cullors had brought her newest home in an overwhelmingly White neighborhood. One of them is Candace Owens, who called Cullors out during a recent appearance on Tucker Carlson.
During her appearance on the show, Owens asked why Khan-Cullors would purchase pricey homes in predominantly White neighborhoods if they are supposed to be her "oppressors". She told the Fox News host that roughly $25 million dollars raised by BLM had been directed toward “building a Black movement.”
Candace Owens asks questions
"Apparently, the ‘Black movement’ was Patrisse moving herself, a Black woman, into other areas of the communities of people that she claims are oppressing Black Americans,” Owens mocked on the show. “Why doesn’t she want to live amongst Black people?” she asked. “Why is she choosing to move herself into an all-White neighborhood? These are important questions.”
While many social media users asked where the funding came from, others asked why Cullors would buy property in White neighborhoods? The New York Post reported that Khan-Cullors had bought two other expensive LA homes in recent years, and had paid another $415,000 for a 3.2-acre property in Georgia. According to reports, one of the homes she purchased, worth $1.4 million, was located in a secluded area of Los Angeles, where the population is reportedly less than 2% black.
Owens mocked her for her "communist" values, saying, "She has my respect because she’s unapologetic in her approach." This had sent Carlson laughing. "She’s telling you what she is. She’s a Marxist. So Marxists steal money from other people and they enrich themselves until the people that they stole from are poor. And so she has stolen money from other people on the pretext of a lie that is Black Lives Matter."
A multi-million affair
“I mean, you have to kind of appreciate the honesty; she’s not hiding by any means, you know. She’s a communist through and through, and she’s been unbelievably unapologetic in her approach,” Owens added.
According to a report carried by dirt.com, “A secluded mini-compound tucked into L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon was recently sold for a tad more than $1.4 million to a corporate entity that public records show is controlled by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37-year-old social justice visionary and co-founder of the galvanizing and, for some, controversial Black Lives Matter movement."
At the moment, it is unclear if Khan-Cullors had anything to do with the BLM funds, but Hawk Newsome, the head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City has reportedly called for an "independent investigation" to look into how the global network spends money.
BLM did not pay
As per the latest reports, on Tuesday, April 13, the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation saying that they had not paid for her house. The group said that she has not been paid since 2019 and that she was paid a total of $120,000 since the organization was founded in 2013, and said she was compensated "for duties such as serving as a spokesperson and engaging in political education work."
