Despite spending millions on multiple homes, Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors slammed the American housing market as being part "white supremacy" in the country.
Cullors shared a link to the NPR documentary We Hold These Truths last week that highlights racism in the housing market, suggesting that a way to disrupt white supremacy was black homeownership.
"Thank you @npr for highlighting the history of racism inside of the housing market and why Black homeownership has always been a way to disrupt white supremacy," wrote Cullors.
The documentary, according to the Daily Mail, "looked at how black people have been systematically discriminated against by the real estate industry and government policy over decades."
The NPR report looked at black people living in Compton, California, and noted that in the 50 years since the Fair Housing Act was passed, the homeownership rate of black Americans in that area increased only 1.2 percent, from 41.8 to 42.3 percent.
Experts in the report theorize that lower homeownership rates could be blamed on "historic underemployment and low wages to a recession-related foreclosure crisis that hit black communities particularly hard."
Cullors, who recently bought yet another million dollar home, bringing her total to at least four homes worth $3.2 million collectively, received backlash for her purchase.
Cullors, who describes herself as a Marxist, was called a fraud for embracing private property. Others called her out for buying a home in a nearly all while neighborhood while the organization she sits on as Executive Director hides where their $90 million in funds are going.
She defended her purchase as a necessary way to dismantal white supremacy and support racial justice.
"Sure, and I think that is a critique that is, um, wanting, and I say that because, um, the, the way that I live my life is in direct support to black people, including my black family members, first and foremost," Cullors stated in an interview last month. "And, for so many black folks who are able to invest in themselves and their community, they choose to invest in their family, and that’s what I have chosen to do. I have a child, I have a brother that has severe mental illness who I take care of, I support my mother, and I support many other family members of mine."
