  2. Just as a little update, looks like the above mentioned Empress of Black Lies Matter has moved to one of the whitest areas in the country - I guess to get away from all those black and brown folk.

    Y'all don't go rushing to judgement here. You know that being woke is complicated and there is always an explanation that sub-woke people cannot understand- mostly because your ancestors were white or you were read Dr. Seuss when you were a kid.

    Most likely she is taking one for the team by moving to an all white area and just showing others how it is done or converting the white natives. Yeh. thank you for that. Much like Kamala growing up and going to high school in Montreal gives her insight into being an American that I do not have. As I said, it's complicated.

    Of course, Twitter removed the tweet pointing this out because that is - I guess- how we roll in this country.

    As all extreme liberals including, our ET trolls, "do as I say, not as I do." Biggest hypocrites around. If these idiots believed in what they are preaching, they should stick to it, thick or thin and show the rest of us how it is done. Of course, they know it is all BS.

  4. I like Patrisse. She is doing important work in calling out the seemingly unequal treatment of Blacks by police in the US. Alas, she is already taken. By an, um, “Gender noncomformist”. Patrisse’s spouse, Janaya Khan, is originally from Toronto, Ontario, Canada and has a BA from York University. Janaya is co-founder of BLM Toronto, which might raise a few questions among critical thinkers, but then again, who cares what critical thinkers think? Yes, police brutality has occurred outside the US, making me feel our Canadian posters owe us an apology under “Errors of omissions”. I’m trying to be diplomatic here. I certainly don’t want to pick a fight with anybody, especially Janaya, as Janaya’s boxing skills are considered significant.

    While the narrow minded might call Janaya “Gender confused” or try to marginalize BLM’s work, it merely means they are not well-versed in “Intersectional” topics. One thing is for certain, Janaya is not confused what race Jayana is, and what race Jayana’s enemies are.

    So the background information I’ve presented lays the foundation on why it is not hypocritical of them to buy a house in a upscale neighborhood of LA. It is intersectional. Sort of like “Transcendental”, like one can transcend definitions, categories, or even facts, based upon having a wider view of our universe than those around them.

    By the time Radical Radical Leftism has run its course, Moderate Radical Leftists such as Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters will be missing Trump’s leadership. Marxist my words.


    Picture kind of reminds me of Ilhan Omar, but I guess all Radical Radical Leftists look the same from an outsider.

  6. I used to think that I wanted to get me one of them Boooorizma jobs, but them top level socialist jobs pay pretty good too.

    So far, I am still leaning toward the Booorizma jobs. You can work from home on your laptop, if you can find it, and apparently in your underwear based on the pictures I have seen.

    But don't dare criticize her for purchasing all the those mansions in white neighborhoods after grifting all that BLM money.... otherwise Twitter will cut you off.

    Who is Jason Whitlock? Black reporter LOCKED OUT of Twitter for criticizing Patrisse Khan-Cullors's $1.4M home
    'I’ve been harping on the fraudulence and the financial grift of BLM for years,' Whitlock said

    Of course criticizing a BLM leader for all of her financial grifting is just another form of "terror by white supremacists"...

    BLM says reports about co-founder's pricey properties part of 'tradition of terror by [W]hite supremacists'
    Patrisse Khan-Cullors recently purchased four properties for a total of $3.2 million

    BLM Threatened Legal Action Against Local Black Activist Who Called For Investigation Into Its Finances
    • A spokesman for the national Black Lives Matter organization said a New York-based Black activist continues to use its name despite sending him multiple cease and desist letters.
    • The activist, Hank Newsome of the unaffiliated Black Lives Matter Greater New York, called for an independent investigation of BLM’s finances following reports that its co-founder is in the midst of a multimillion-dollar real estate buying spree.
    • “So the issue has become my affiliation and not the use of funds. Interesting,” Newsome told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
    • The BLM spokesman reversed course when asked by the DCNF why the group claims to have the right to determine who can and cannot use the BLM slogan.
    A spokesman for the national Black Lives Matter organization suggested a New York-based Black activist who called for an independent investigation of the group’s finances is illegally using the BLM name.

    Hawk Newsome, the leader of an unaffiliated organization called Black Lives Matter Greater New York, criticized BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors, a self-identified “trained Marxist,” for presenting herself as a socialist while at the same time purchasing four homes across the U.S. since 2016 for a total of $3.2 million.

    “If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes,” Newsome told the New York Post on Sunday. “It’s really sad because it makes people doubt the validity of the movement and overlook the fact that it’s the people that carry this movement.”

    Newsome added that “black firms and black accountants” need to audit BLM Global Network Foundation (BLM), the group that Cullors co-founded and currently leads, and “find out where the money is going.”

    An outside spokesman for BLM told the Daily Caller News Foundation on Tuesday that Newsome “is not and has never been a part of the official Black Lives Matter organization, but continues to use BLM’s name even after sending him multiple cease and desist letters. Therefore, any mention of him as a leader is not factual.”

    The spokesman, Sean Wherley of the communications firm We Are Rally, added: “Only BLM chapters who adhere to BLM’s principles and code of ethics are permitted to use the BLM name.”

    Newsome scoffed at BLM’s suggestion that he was not permitted to use the phrase Black Lives Matter.

    “So the issue has become my affiliation and not the use of funds,” Newsome told the DCNF. “Interesting.”

    Newsome’s organization, Black Lives Matter Greater New York, has been a registered business entity in the state since December 2016, New York business records show.

    And BLM does not have legal rights over the phrase Black Lives Matter.

    In fact, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office rejected six applications BLM had submitted for trademarks containing the phrase in 2018 in part because the slogan is a social and political message that is not linked to a source of goods or services, according to JD Supra.

    “This movement belongs to the people,” Newsome said. “It is for the people and by the people. It is the people that take to the streets and march in the name of BLM. No one has ownership of that. It is the equivalent of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. claiming ownership of the civil rights movement.”

    Newsome confirmed that he had received cease and desist letters from BLM and said he had sent them a response that caused the group to “leave me alone.”

    Neither Newsome or BLM provided the DCNF with a copy of the cease and desist letter or Newsome’s response.

    Wherley, the BLM spokesman, reversed course when asked by the DCNF why the group claims to have the right to determine who can and cannot use the BLM slogan.

    “We are saying [Newsome] is not affiliated with BLMGNF,” Wherley said. “There may be individuals who include the words ‘Black Lives Matter’ in their organizational names, but they are not affiliated with BLMGNF. Does that make sense?”

    BLM issued a public statement Tuesday in response to reports that Cullors, its co-founder and executive director, had purchased four homes across the U.S. since 2016. Her latest real estate acquirement came on March 30 with the purchase of a $1.4 million home in a majority-white Los Angeles neighborhood through a corporate entity under her control, according to a celebrity real estate news site.

    The statement said BLM had paid Cullors a total of $120,000 since the organization’s inception in 2013, but that the group “cannot and did not commit any organizational resources toward the purchase of personal property by any employee or volunteer. Any insinuation or assertion to the contrary is categorically false.”

    The statement added that reports of Cullors’ multimillion-dollar real estate buying spree are part of a “right-wing offensive” that “puts Patrisse, her child and her loved ones in harm’s way” and “continues a tradition of terror by white supremacists against black activists.”

    In addition to her compensation from BLM, Cullors raked in upwards of $20,000 a month serving as chairwoman of a Los Angeles jail reform group in 2019, the DCNF previously reported. (RELATED: BLM’s ‘Marxist’ Co-Founder Raked In $20,000 A Month As Chairwoman Of Jail Reform Group)

    The group, Reform LA Jails, told the DCNF on Wednesday that it paid Cullors “market rate compensation” for her services, and added that it is “sexist and racist to expect an executive level Black woman to not be paid for their work.”
