Black Lives Matter: Racial Supremacists Loot Business and Government

Written By Wyatt Claypool, Posted on April 17, 2021

Recently there was a very telling report that came out from the New York Post, that has since been suppressed by Facebook, that one of the founders of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization Patrisse Cullors, was buying up a home in Los Angeles for $1.4 million, in an area where the black population is only 1.8 percent. This was part of a larger $3.5 million dollar property buy-up by Cullors over the last year.

It strikes one as odd why someone running a non-profit organization who is a self-described “trained Marxist” is living in upper-class areas only accessible to those who have great personal wealth.

Yes, Cullors is a published author, and reportedly signing deals with companies like Warner Brothers, but isn’t it so telling that the most left-wing and anti-capitalist community leaders are at the same time some of the most aggressively capitalistic people in society?

Isn’t BLM supposed to be looking to overthrow America’s capitalist economic system, and underline the nuclear family? Cullors can’t seem to get enough capitalism and is using her great wealth from her notoriety as a radical activist to help her own family become prosperous as well.

In reality, Cullors case is quite egregious in how quickly she went from a local racial activist to living in luxury, but the extent to which these radical race-baiting huckers and grifters have turned divisive and false narratives around race into a full-on industry is jaw-dropping.

The racial activist organization Color of Change (CC) in 2018 only brought in donations of $6.1 million, but after the widespread race riots of 2020, CC has brought in $13.24 million exploiting the deaths of black people like George Floyd and Daunte Wright, often pushing false information and conspiracy theories about police-involved deaths to collect donations for their movement.

CC is the type of organization that despite at this current date the trial of former officer Derek Chauvin for the death of Floyd has not concluded CC is pushing the narrative that it was “murder” despite all the evidence to the contrary.

The BLM organization has been operating in much the same way as CC, after every police involved-death of a black person in 2020 they would blindly push a narrative that this was somehow a “lynching” or “murder” in many cases when they had yet to even see any actual evidence from the specific situation.

BLM was able to rake in more than $90 million in donations in 2020 alone, in large part due to the mainstream media push behind BLM making them seem like a legitimate organization pushing for equality when it is merely a Marxist front organization.


Simply reading the demands on BLM’s website should disabuse anyone of the notion that they are fighting for “equality” in any way. Their entire website is full of race-baiting conspiracy theories, claiming white supremacists are everywhere and that the Republican Party is looking to oppress black Americans. 

This is of course not to say racists don’t exist or race-motivated crimes don’t happen. They do, but organizations like BLM do not tend to focus on obvious instances of racism, because nobody defends them. They instead will target situations that look bad, but often no wrongdoing was present, like the Micheal Brown case, because those situations can be made controversial and allows race-baiters to claim anyone who doesn’t agree with their race-infused narrative of the controversy are “racists” or evidence America is a racist country.

To highlight another two individual bad actors in this area, Al Sharpton and Shaun King are prime examples of how long-term careers can be created through race-baiting, even if you repeatedly incite violence. 

For some reason, Sharpton is still looked at as an authority on racial justice even after helping to incite a riot against the Jewish community in Crown Heights that killed a Jewish man in 1991. This was in response to an accidental car wreck that killed two African American kids.

Shaun King, who runs the Real Justice PAC, is a newer figure to the race-baiting industry, and he just back in 2020 was threatening to doxx police officers in Kenosha Wisconsin, which Twitter refused to suspend him for, as well as promoting the destruction of property he sees as “racist propaganda”.

King has also taken part repeatedly in spreading misinformation in order to smear people he views as enemies of his racial justice agenda as racist. Below King pretended that Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who defended himself from rioters in Kenosha, was a white supremacist for completely innocuous behaviour.

Congress is also overflowing with its own set of race-baiters who in large part get reelected and promoted because of their radical hard-left views on racial issues. Look no further than Maxine Waters, Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Cori Bush, and many more.

Bush in particular is motivated almost purely by race-baiting politics in Congress. In the most recent incident where a 13-year-old Hispanic kid was shot by police for brandishing a firearm around them. Bush contents the kid “had his hands in the air” when he was shot despite bodycam footage proving when the kid dropped the gun behind his back and turned around quickly the officer would have had no time to know he was turning on him unarmed.

These race-baiters have to overblow any tragic situation that involves a black person. Now that racial justice is an industry, every situation has to be explained only by race, rather than the evidence.

It would be hard to imagine Martin Luther King Jr ever stooping to this level and begin turning tragic situations into opportunities to incite riots and collect donations. He probably would not make it very far in this new political world where grievances are searched for or created in order to generate monetary value.
