Candace Owens mocks BLM founder Patrisse Cullors over property binge and asks why she doesn’t live near black people

BLM founder Patrisse Cullors was blasted by Candace Owens over her pricey California mansion as the conservative pundit demanded to know why she doesn't live near black people.

During her lively appearance on the Tucker Carlson show, Owens let rip at the "Marixst" Black Lives Matter leader after news of her swanky $1.4million home in Topanga Canyon surfaced.

"She is fearful of white people," Owens said. "Well, why doesn't she want to live amongst Black people? Why is she choosing to move herself into an all-white neighborhood? Those are important questions."

In her new area – glitzy Topanga in Los Angeles – 88 percent of locals are white, while just 1.8 per cent are back, according to the census, reports the Daily Mail.

The property is located 20 miles from Cullors' childhood home in Van Nuys which she previously described as being in an "impoverished neighborhood."

Owens said that she only respected Cullors – who was recently slammed as a "fraud" – because "she's unapologetic in her approach. She is telling you what she is: she's a Marxist. 

"Marxists steal money from other people and they enrich themselves," the Candace talk show host continued.

"She has stolen money from other people on the pretext of a lie that is Black Leves Matter and she has enriched herself and she has bought four homes. 

"You have to appreciate the honesty. She is not hiding by any means. She is a Communist through and through and she has been unbelievably unapologetic in her approach."

Carlson then remarked that activist reverend "Al Sharpton must be looking at this and saying: 'I've been doing this for 40 years. Where did I go wrong? I don't have a house in Topanga Canyon?'"

Owens complained that the lack of accountability Cullors was subject to was "completely ridiculous" and noted that many corporations were standing by her.

Her comments come after another BLM leader Hawk Newsome called for an "independent" financial investigation after her significant real estate transactions spanning the country were revealed.

Newsome, the head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City, told the New York Post: "If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes.

"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."

The activist called for “an independent investigation”, adding, “we need black firms and black accountants to go in there and find out where the money is going.”

He told NYP that his group does not receive any financial support from the BLM Global Network.

The Post alleged while BLM protests broke out across the US, Cullors "went on a real estate buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2million in the US alone, according to property records."

BLM co-founder Cullors has been branded a "fraud" for buying a $1.4m home in a largely white district of LA.

The 37-year-old, who calls herself a "trained Marxist" and "freedom fighter", bought the three-bathroom house in Topanga Canyon which comes complete with a guest house.

The expensive property has a large back yard which the realtor says is "ideal for entertaining or quietly contemplating cross-canyon vistas framed by mature trees."

Her allegedly "significant real estate transactions" have been "exposed" by an ethics group.

National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) told the media about "significant real estate transactions involving BLM founder Patrisse Cullors.

"These properties span the country, three being in California, and one in Conyers, Georgia.

"Cullers has also been looking at real estate in an exclusive enclave in the Bahamas."

According to the Associated Press, BLM took in a whopping $90m donations in 2020.

It is unclear if or how Cullors, who is an artist and teaches at a university, is paid by the activist group she co-founded.
