Conservative columnist Candace Owens appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show on Monday night, April 12, to condemn Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors for purchasing expensive land in the Topanga Canyon region of Los Angeles.
“Apparently, the ‘black movement’ was Patrisse moving herself, a black woman, into other areas of the communities of people that she claims are oppressing black Americans,” Owens said, mocking the BLM leader.
“Why doesn’t she want to live amongst black people?” she asked. “Why is she choosing to move herself into an all-white neighborhood? These are important questions.”

The mockery came following the recent reports that Khan-Cullors, a self-described Marxist, bought a $1.4 million home in a mostly-white neighborhood in Los Angeles last month. The 2,370 square-foot home has canyon views and “soaring ceilings, skylights, and plenty of screens.”
Public records also showed that Khan-Cullors owns three homes in the Los Angeles area, including the homestead in Topanga Canyon with two houses on a quarter acre.
Khan-Cullors began her buying spree in Los Angeles in 2016, only a few years after the civil rights campaign she launched with fellow activists Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi from a hashtag — #blacklivesmatter — gained momentum.
During the show, Carlson answered Khan-Cullors’ admiration for Karl Marx, a socialist who opposed private property ownership, by showing a video discussing her Marxist theory history.
In her response, Owens said that Khan-Cullors “has my respect because she’s unapologetic in her approach.
“She’s a Marxist, so Marxists steal money from other people and they enrich themselves, and tell other people they stole from the poor,” Owens said, reports The Millennial. “She’s enriched herself and she bought four homes. I mean, you have to appreciate the honesty.”
Regarding Black Lives Matter’s fundraising, Candace said: “The corporations are standing behind her, which is incredibly interesting.”
“These corporations that are pouring millions and millions of dollars into Black Lives Matter and you’re correct, they raised more than $90 million, how much more we will never know, but $90 million of which $20 million went to ‘building the black movement’,” she continued.
Last year, Black Lives Matter received $90 million in contributions, according to the organization.
