1. The whole premise of this attacks stinks

the implication is she is stealing from the movement, because how can a black activist be well off legitimately?

Also, the cost of those 4 "Million Dollar Homes" average out to $530 thousand. That's a big ass house in rural Nebraska but in any major metro area those prices are not remarkable in the least.

This smells like a hit job to me.

4. It is

Her book was a NY Times bestseller - and she has a multi picture deal with Warner Brothers.

Mark me - it's in the UK's Sun too (the hit job) and they don't like us black folk . . . based upon their multiple hit pieces against Harry and Megan.

2. Ditto Master Sarge!

She had a NY Times best seller and has a deal with Warner Brothers.

She earned it.

3. I didn't know you could buy a home for $510,000 in Inglewood.

5. I don't much about Inglewood, but I saw pictures of that home

I'm not that impressed considering the cost.

Also Jason Whitlock, a reporter for ESPN was blocked on Twitter for sharing photos of the home

6. That's not even a lot for a condo in Inglewood.

7. Thank you for the info.

I've seeing that hit job on Facebook and thought that there must be something fishy there.

8. Only a fool who doesn't understand real estate would think that was newsworthy

A million-dollar home in LA is not what most people would expect. Besides, as others have noted, she actually earned money to buy her home. This is the casualty of Black people doing surprising things like organizing to vote in a former confederacy, then organizing again to get people to the polls to vote in a runoff in the dead of winter. Some people will always be surprised if Black people reveal themselves as smart enough do anything positive in this world besides shine their shoes and shuffle.

10. Since when is the NY Post a reliable source? Same folks that brought us the Hunter Biden

Investigation as told by Giuliani and the blind computer guy that just new it was Hunter Biden.

The info was first published in the NY Post. Its disappointing to see it in other places. The article is trash.

I live in the town next to Conyers.I go to Conyers frequently. Its not a high end area. A 400 K home is not a big deal in Conyers. AND, GA has a lot of land. Homes typically have a lot of land space. So they are talking about the acreage as if that is a big deal. Its fucking GA. We all have land. (Well, we all used to, they are building every damn where now, throwing up condos, townhouses right next to each other everywhere, but that's another story) . They go on to mention that she purchased it after 2 years after her best selling book.
And having a home with a pool, is not big fucking thing. Lots of homes have pools here in GA. Indoor or outdoor. Its hot as the Devil's draws here in the summer. Come to GA and act as if having a pool is a big deal and people will look at you crazy.
That's why we have so many damn stores that cater to fucking pools. Ugh. This is such bad reporting.

If you have evidence of wrong doing, then bring it. But this is bullshit.

11. I hope you've been following this thread from the beginning

The NYPOST article I posted is a source for the Whitlock angle not the entire story

The sources I've posted on the main story have been from black media
