Black Lives Matter is under fire for misusing funds. But that doesn’t change what they feel about their $6 million California mansion. Apparently, it’s purpose is to cultivate joy, which integral to implementing change.
Let’s get real here. If you came up with a way to sucker millions of people out of billions of dollars, you might buy a mansion too. But to claim its all part of being purposely joyful, well that’s a load of bullshit like no other.
“Joy is a radical act,” Black Lives Matter alleged. “As a practice and as an experience, joy is something that can heal and sustain us when times are tough. But joy also provides opportunities to explore the possibilities beyond the limits of our daily lives.”
Black Lives Matter, which is under scrutiny over the misuse of donation funds, said the 6,500-square-foot mansion will be used for fellows who wish to learn how to be joyful during the “challenges of the modern world.”
“Creating opportunities for joyful expression is increasingly necessary but often few and far between,” the organization claimed. “The Black Lives Matter Global Network seeks to change that with a new creative fellowship program.”
It is unknown why Black Lives Matter believes the $6 million California mansion is suited for the fellowship rather than a less convenient location with a glamorous cost. But the organization claims the house will operate as a living space for those seeking joy and and “communal space for collaboration,” which includes a garden space for artists who wish to utilize it for dreaming, meditating, and building joy.
There have been a lot of questions surrounding recent reports about the purchase of Creator’s House in California. https://t.co/PcXeHIIF1M

There you have it folks. Living in a mansion is all it takes to end racism.
Especially if you live there joyfully. Why didn’t I think of that?
Of course, BLM took to Twitter to try and justify their recent misuse of funds, and further explain their new take on joy. In a long thread of tweets, they acknowledge their lack of transparency, their need to do better, and even promised a new “board” to help get them on the right track.
Blah, blah, blah. Just a bunch of lip service from a bunch of leftists that have no intention of being above board. Thus, they continue to stand behind their purchase of what they’ve termed the “Creator’s House.” And to be clear, this isn’t the first mansion they’ve purchased. But it is the first time they’ve explained things in relation to happiness.
“Black Lives Matter recognizes the power of arts and culture to dismantle white supremacy and bring us closer to achieving full liberation not just here in America, but across the globe also,” Black Lives Matter stated to NewsOne.
In 2021, Breitbart News reported that Patrisse Khan-Cullors, one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, bought four homes over the past several years.
The lavish spending has encouraged some activists to question how Black Lives Matter is spending their massive pool of donations from the unrest in 2020. Cullors claims she has never taken a salary from the donations but has not stated whether she has received any compensation from the organization by way of gifts, expense reimbursements, or stipends.
“Organizers should get paid for the work that they do. They should get paid a living wage,” she claimed in 2021. “And the fact that the right-wing media is trying to create hysteria around my spending is, frankly, racist and sexist.”
I’m guessing $5 million a year is the new living wage. Heck, that might be true once Biden gets done inflating the costs of goods and services.
