Oh, look at that! The ex-BLM leader who was caught buying multiple houses has a wife interested in real estate, too! What are the odds?
You’ll remember Patrisse Cullors who was caught padding her real estate portfolio after BLM raked in millions in 2020, right?
Cullors left for “other ventures” after that.
In the wake of the death of George Floyd, Black Lives Matter raised $90 million in 2020. According to reports, about a quarter of that went to local chapters, and the rest is a mystery.
There have been many calls for the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation to be transparent with where donations go.
As ClashDaily reported a few days ago, getting answers is going to be tough since the activists Cullors named as her successors never stepped into the role.
Thanks to the New York Post, we now know where at least a few million have gone… to Canada.
It seems that Black Lives Matter transferred millions of dollars to a charity run by “trained Marxist” Patrisse Cullors’s wife, Janaya Khan, to purchase a $6.3 million mansion in Toronto that was once owned by Communists.
Black Lives Matter transferred millions to a Canadian charity run by the wife of its co-founder to purchase a sprawling mansion that had once served as the headquarters of the Communist Party, public records show.
M4BJ, a Toronto-based non-profit set up by Janaya Khan and other Canadian activists, snagged the 10,000 square foot historic property for the equivalent of $6.3 million in cash in July 2021, according to Toronto property records viewed by The Post.
Khan is the wife of Patrisse Khan-Cullors, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter Global Foundation Network and a self-avowed Marxist.
Way to go, Comrades!
They must’ve wanted to make sure that that property stayed in the hands of Marxists and they paid a pretty penny to do it.
Khan is just as much of an activist as Cullors is.
Khan, born in Toronto, is described on a speakers’ website as ‘a black, queer, gender-nonconforming activist (pronouns: they, them, theirs), staunch Afrofuturist and social-justice educator who presents an enlightening point of view on police brutality and systemic racism.’
Khan and Cullors married in 2016, and have two children.
Cullors stepped down as executive director of the Black Lives Matter Global Network in May 2021, amid scrutiny of her $3.2 million property empire.
It was unclear whether the money was transferred from BLMGN to M4BJ before or after Cullors stepped down, and why the money went to M4BJ rather than directly to BLM’s Canada affiliate.

The multi-million-dollar transfer that went north of the border isn’t just making a stink in the U.S., a couple of activists involved with BLM Canada were outraged and resigned calling the move “unethical.”
The purchase of the Toronto property, named the Wildseed Centre for Art and Activism, came to light amid mounting concerns over the US activist group’s lack of transparency in its finances.
In Canada, the purchase was criticized by two senior members of the group who resigned earlier this month over the building’s funding.
“For BLM Canada to take money from BLM Global Network for a building without consulting the community was unethical,” tweeted Sarah Jama earlier this month. “For BLM Canada to refuse to answer questions from young black organizers goes against the spirit of movement building.”

The transfer raises even more questions of where all of this money is going and who is in charge of it.
There are no clear answers.
The most recent tax filing for the charity, from 2019, gives an address in Los Angeles that does not exist, and the two remaining BLM directors identified by The Washington Examiner were not able to assist – with one even scrubbing BLM associations from his social media after he was contacted by the paper.
They are yet to file a 2020 return, a Form 990, as required – which could see BLM fined by the IRS.
Laurie Styron, executive director of CharityWatch, said the findings were deeply troubling, and said they should have filed their 2020 form by now.
‘Like a giant ghost ship full of treasure drifting in the night with no captain, no discernible crew, and no clear direction,’ she said.
Paul Kamenar, counsel for conservative watchdog group the National Legal and Policy Center, told the paper a full audit was needed, describing the situation as ‘grossly irregular’.

These BLM grifters continue to grift and the Corporate Media will continue to give them a pass because they agree with the grift.
This is why we need alternative media sources that aren’t afraid of exposing the allies of the Corporate Media.
