Black Lives Matter recently described America as a stolen country on Thanksgiving and faced a lot of backlash for the comment. The organization posted a tweet that stated people are eating dry turkeys and overcooked stuffing upon stolen land. It also included a graphic that states how colonization never stopped, it just became more normalized.
The group encouraged followers to visit a website and Find their ancestral homeland, with social media users asking that the BLM founders’ own houses be given up first.
Another commented that they should give up all of their houses, cars, money, jobs, and everything else that they own because they are on stolen ground too.
Every square inch of this planet’s land was taken/conquered, with users accusing BLM of trying to normalize generational victimization. They called it “gross.” It was reported that photos showed Patrisse, the founder of BLM, had built a wall around her $1.4 million home and stepped down as CEO from criticisms about her lifestyle.
In the initial report, Cullors stated that she had been upgrading her mansion in Los Angeles County, which was amid the fallout from her $3M property portfolio. It was also reported that Cullors was a trained Marxist and had purchased 4 properties over the years as her activist profile rose in the media and protests raged across the country.
Cullors resigned from her position at the end of May following the controversy over her personal wealth but denied any wrongdoing.
According to Culler’s Marxist ideology, private property is the result of the upper classes oppressing the lower classes. One person shared their Thanksgiving meal on social media, asking her what mansion did this come from?
