DeRay McKesson

When Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson isn't leading protest marches, he lives comfortably in a home provided by wealthy donors.

McKesson was arrested last weekend during a protest in Louisiana. His booking sheet shows his home address is a house on a leafy street in suburban Baltimore.

The 2,808 Sq. ft. 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home is owned by James and Robin Wood, who are wealthy donors to George Soros’ Open Society Institute.

Soros is the billionaire who helped finance Barack Obama's presidential campaign in 2008.

Robin Wood is a law student at the University of Maryland, according to Collegefix.com.

The home she provided rent-free to McKesson is valued at $687,000.

But McKesson is no freeloader. The 31-year-old earns $165,000 annually as a high level official in the Baltimore school system.

He took the job after his campaign for mayor of Baltimore failed miserably. He finished 5th in the running for mayor.

As Baltimore Public Schools’ newly hired interim chief human capital officer, McKesson oversees 56 employees and an annual budget of $4 million.

McKesson's boss, schools CEO Sonja Santelises, said she last saw him on Friday at a staff meeting.

She said prior to his hiring they discussed his BLM protest schedule, and he assured her that his Black Lives Matter side gig wouldn't interfere with his duties to the students of Baltimore.

McKesson took the day off on Monday after his arrest. He also took off on Wednesday, July 13, to meet with President Obama at the White House.

Santelises claims he was already scheduled to be off on Monday -- after only 1 week on the job.

    Ok...?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    So what.

  • AG

    Does this discredit his effort? He's still out there being arrested, putting his life on the line.

  • Amel

    So What? This doesnt change there work he's doing. So many people want to criticize him but aren't doing anything themselves. Let the man live.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    So what are you trying to say. Should he live in the hood to be considered down for the cause?

  • Vonn

    This man has strength & integrity. He should be good for Baltimore's school system. Hopefully he will run for mayor again. He is definitely for the people.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    First we can't get behind him because he's gay now we can't get behind him because he lives in a nice house and makes six figures??? Who cares!!!

  • Sriracha In My Bag,

    Soooooo, is he suppose to be poor or something? I don't get it.

  • product of 79

    I'm totally confused on why this matters? umm, did any1 check to see if that's his bf? I like him and I wish the best for him ?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    When I read the write up, I automatically thought he was gay. But then I was like, maybe not. But I just read in the comments where he is gay...so I think that may be bf/bf.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    With everything else going on, this is what we're supposed to be "fake mad" about now?

  • LibraGirlonly

    Oh ok good for DeRay.

  • Yardgirl

    Shiiid I wish I had a free house to live in while holding down a full time job with a high paying salary!! In my estimation he is totally winning!!

  • iWasteTime

    Is this unimportant revelation going to stop the killing of unarmed black people at the hands of those paid to protect an serve and other white citizens? Now that this has been "exposed" can I now get in a car accident, knock on the door of a white home owner and not get a chest full of shot gun bullets? Can my son walk to the store not be accosted by a stranger, not get into a altercation and lose his life?
    This write up and those like it, are trying to jeopardize this mans livelihood so he'll what? Sit down, stop marching, stop the movement? No, it shows that he is a threat to the status quo and his efforts are working. I pray for this mans safety. First it was he's not taken serious because he is gay, now a attack on his career, next will be his life. He puts his life on the line every time he goes out there, every time he is locked up. I won't begrudge him some of life comforts that he's been gifted due to his education and willingness to not lay down. Many don't to remain comfortable.

  • ThickyFromPhilly

    And the point of this write up is.....

  • Milani

    ...so the man has a job and is passionate about the cause. What's the issue?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Did anyone watch President Obama's speech at the cop funeral? Thoughts?

    I'm confused by this new dialogue about people expecting too much from cops. I know Obama said that we expect them to be teachers, social workers, etc. And they have been talking about this on MSM as well. Since when? What exactly does that mean? Personally, I just want them to stop targeting and slaughtering us. That's it.

  • product of 79

    I'm thinkin that... I mean he is gay...a gay guy living in another mans home, runs the possibilities for that question and others, like what if his homie is like you can stay here til you get your spot? it could be any reason... But so what ?

    And I couldn't conjure up a single solitary phuck to give ?

    Lemme go see IF we missed something! BRB ?

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    I expect them to do their job without killing us. Isn't it funny how teachers are expected to be referees, counselors, parents, etc, yet we don't say we expecting too much. Someone tweeted that social workers go in the same neighborhoods with a clipboard and yellow folder and don't kill.

    So.

  • yoni

    Well good for him. Get it how you live. Who he sleeps with and who pays for it is none of my business. Folks get mad if you live in a gated community and fight for the rights of black people. So why can't he do both.

    TWO THINGS --

    1. We don't finically support our own.

    2. Malcolm X talked about those "black" leaders who get pushed in front of the world by some rich white (or Jew). I'm sorry, but the #Blacklivesmatter movement does not speak for me.

    It's so busy trying to change white people, instead of taking a look at us as people. The message we should be following, in my opinion, is: We have to be more competitive.

  • Buttercup

    Folks sexual proclivities are none of my concern. I'm pretty sure there are some folks who don't agree with the way I live my life, and they can beat it- or eat it if they prefer.

    First of all, how dare they make his address public, wtf? Is that the usual? If so, I see a problem with that. And lastly, so damn what? Is he supposed to be in the ghetto or something eating gov't cheese to actively protest against police brutality? Was MLK or Malcolm X living in poverty when they were fighting in support of black lives? What does one have to do with the other anyway. This is just stupid, I'm sorry. Again I say, don't take the bait y'all.

  • Finding Forever…

    Rent free & he pockets his $165,000? I need new friends or a new hustle. I knew when I heard his name & the arrest that local media would get to "reporting". Funny thing or more sad...is Marylin Mosby & her hubs Nick (who wanted to run for mayor too) was also a "conflict of interest". His job & fighting for the cause are "conflict of interest". O'Malley dick-head a$$ served as city councilmen, mayor AND governor (two damn terms each for the latter) AND I NEVER HEARD "conflict of interest" with his wife being a judge in Baltimore City district court. She kept the gavel in her hand while he "governed" well lack thereof.

    I agree. This is even more reason why he should be applauded. He makes good money, lives in a nice community and is still down for the cause. He could very well become a victim himself because of where he is living, someone/police may think he doesn't belong and harass him for living in a nice home in a gated community.

    Which I just can't wrap my mind around. It's one thing if he's living this new lifestyle and forgot where he came from but it's another when he moves on to something better while not forgetting where he came from and putting an effort to make sure where he came from improves. That crabs in a barrel mentality needs to stop, it's the reason why when SOME, not all, black people get on they fear coming back because of the envy of others who they left in the same spot. We got so much work to do its not even funny. We mad at the way others look at us when some of us are too busy being Petty Labelle's to think clearly and logically smh

They took their money and started their own schools and businesses. It talked about how they own the media (which we already knew). And so on and so forth....

    Woot! I saw a FB post about a black owned butcher going out of business in Covington, GA. My heart warmed as I read the comments of those wanting to start a crowdfunding campaign, help him with his strategic initiatives, and patronized his store. I'm going to visit his store on Saturday.

  • Auditor

    Different strokes... they're asses can just blend in...negras not so much. Plus we tried it...NOT saying we shouldn't try it again...but don't surprised at the outcome.

  • Buttercup

    And just like Tyler Perry, he will continue to get my viewership and coint. Bad acting and predictable plots be darned.

  • BKLYNS MAMA

    ok, all this back story...is to make us feel like...he fraud? to discredit him?
    This is why WE can Not evah unite....WE to busy ..being ... CRAPS in a BARREL...ASK you self...what are YOU DOING?

  • Auditor

    I don't think it has anything to do with WHERE he lives it's WHO is paying for it. Obviously folks don't know who Soros is...

  • SummerBaby

    So I'm currently living in a small town about 1.5 south of Chicago. There was a Black Lives Matter rally planned near my job yesterday. My Sprite coworkers were scared & talking hella shyt. My male black coworker was chatting it up with them expressing his views. I was on a phone call & couldn't chime in, but I was ear hustling & pissed.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    When did he start fraudin'? As a teen? He was active in organizing in Baltimore since he was 14. Kinda young to have mapped all of THIS out to current day, no? So he knew unarmed blacks were going to be hunted 17 years ago when he was organizing back then?

    Fukk callin him a fraud. Call his ass a medium or a clairvoyant then in this case. He can see the future if this is true.

  • Wildcat34

    Goodness, that is a healthy salary for a 31 year old. Very nice for him!

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    If Deray is "for the people" why haven't we seen him in Chicago or any other place where black on black crimes are rampant? Everytime i pose this question, I get nothing but insults.. No answers. Oh and where was this "movement" last night while 4 black men kicked in the door of an entrepreneur (a black man), robbed and shot him(Decatur) It starts at home. Fight for the end of black on black crimes and police brutality... I'm with Andrew Young, unlovable little brats, who know nothing about a true movement.

    This is the second time my coworkers have talked reckless. Trust & believe I was taking notes. I was more angered by my black male coworker talking about he doesn't see the point because why isn't there rallies for black on black crime. ?

  • MissHarlem

    His good outweighs the bad. I thank him for showing us in a positive light. Main reason I went to an HBCU, same major, etc. Your comment is the very telling. You will stomp on flowers huh

  • nucynu25

    Oh no, say it aint so... :(

  • DeeFromLA

    I'm struggling to find the point in this post. Why is his address an issue, was your expectation that he was broke? it's summer time why wouldn't he be able to have time off? Does it matter how his living quarters are on a street with leafy trees and well kept lawns? You will find that a lot of people who are supporting this movement are college educated, upper middle class, working in corporate america and suffering from racism in the workplace, and living in suburban areas across this country.

  • Buttercup

    Well, you know some of us are still sleep. Everyone isn't going to agree. He should be mindful that even though he has a goodT job in corporate, he's still a nigra.

    He LIVES in "other places".

    You've been in Chicago? On the front line for change? You need help with your movement? Leave us some information.

  • Buttercup

    I'm so appreciative that you so eloquently stated what I was not willing. I think I've written off everyone who wants to bring up "black-on-black crime."

  • SummerBaby

    Exactly! I don't know why people think communities don't rally about black on black crime as well. I've actually seen more of those put together. They just get less media coverage.

  • LibraGirlonly

    We don't talk about it at my job. Not now or ever. When ferguson popped off there wasn't a word spoken and the downtown area was empty during the days of protesting. It was really strange. The white people were so scared they didn't come to work. A black guy who cleans the offices said he came in one morning during the height of the protest and a white guy got spooked as soon as he saw him. The black guy said Man gone I'm trying to work. I fell out laughing.

  • LibraGirlonly

    He is probably sucking butt for promotions.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    I mean FOR REAL man.

  • nucynu25

    I am so sick of trying to explain it.. a poster commented so beautifully abt what it is ( the name escapes me) ...but just like Charmaigne said when Isis kills us we don't say , Well, americans kill each other too..nope you deal with the issue at hand. I am really beginning to think ppl think we are stupid..like why cant we talk abt more than one issue at a time and still understand they are separate issues...Are our minds that shallow?

  • SummerBaby

    My coworkers were scared they weren't going to make it home. ?

  • nucynu25

    Not today huh , sis lol

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Misguided. Its very misguided.

    What does the fukked up ass ending of "Crooklyn" have to do with the current climate of affairs in black America? What does "Girl 6" have to do with ANY OF THIS?!

    They get less media coverage NOW. But back during 80s and 90s when we were fighting for our communities back against drugs and all that comes with it, we got coverage. So no. Lets not pretend we NEVER rallied in our own community. We have. We still DO.

  • MissyJ

    I'm so sick of black folks bringing up "black on black crime" It isn't a thing! I also hate folks saying ObamaPhone...

    I know sis, but I figure with this much disdain they have to be doing something, even if it is in their own towns, affecting legislation change, anything !

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Probably bean working on that comment since Sunday night. Idiot

  • SpillyNillie

    So we ending white on white crime? Latin on Latin crime? You name it, it's rampant. Studies show that most crimes are committed by people in the same racial group. Studies also show that most violet offenses are committed by perpetrators who knew the victim (i.e. family and friends). So all crimes matter?

  • nucynu25

    And now they are saying , well .. police kill white folks too....So why yall not mad ? Why not stand with us?

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    They not. No solution, or idea having asses.

  • SummerBaby

    The rallies in the 80's & 90's were huge. They recently rallied for nephew's 16 year old cuz that was killed.

  • SpillyNillie

    This!

    Besides, policing was a system put in place to deter crime not perpetuate it.

    People who compare black on black crime to crimes committed by policemen; are basically saying that it's okay for a the man in blue to kill us because we kill ourselves.

    I guess it was okay for "Masa" to hang us since our brothers sold us?

    STAY WOKE!

  • Auditor

    Ya'll need to google Soros...

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    I actually agree. Some of his endings DO actually suck. But Spike Lee movies are a part of our culture like it or not. A huge part. Especially the whole wake up theme. Which is how we got on him in the FIRST place. (Harlem's ORIGINAL comment).

    Spike actually needs to be collecting a check, bc he coined that phrase in an iconic movie (Teddy P did it a song). He also brought important movies to not just us, the world. Malcolm X needed to be told and he did that.

    But see what I did there? I laid out the positives of Spike Lee and what he has given us.

    YOU didnt do that. You immediately pulled from the negative.

  • LeBrick James

    I agree with this. Black lives shouldnt just matter when cops are killing us. They should matter just as much when we're killing each other on the South Side of Chicago, etc.
    I understand the cause of BLM, and I believe in it, but I think it would be good if they widen their focus a bit, instead of primarily focusing on cop killings of black men. We're doing a lot more harm to ourselves in our own 'hoods and communities than dirty cops are doing to us.

  • scentsychick30

    I'm guessing he's supposed to be homeless or live in the hood to be taken serious.why does it matter where he live?

  • Miany

    Obama can go on with that retoric, I know he has a job to do but at what cost? It is uber condescending for him to bring up that "we expect too much from cops" crap when we are literally begging them to stop gunning us down.

  • Low E. TUH!

    ???

  • RespectSelf

    When black people try to take leadership roles they can always count of their fellow black peers to take shots at them. People really be wanting them to do and be everywhere. Also, people always have a problem with how they are doing things. So they don't get the support they need in order to grow. They don't get the backing from the people they are trying to help. But then get mad or don't like the people who really do be backing these folks.

    No one person can do it all. Everyone should start taking leadership roles. If you want this that done in your community then start being that person to do it... and respect the others doing what they can. But all the side comments from people waiting on the next person should kept to yourself... "That aint the work of the lord!"

    I'm looking for the wrong that George has committed I can't find it.

    "George Soros is the founder and chairman of Open Society—a network of foundations, partners, and projects in more than 100 countries. His commitment to the idea of open society—where rights are respected, government is accountable, and no one has the monopoly on the truth—makes the Open Society Foundations unlike any other private philanthropic effort in history.

    Soros began his philanthropy in 1979, giving scholarships to black South Africans under apartheid. In the 1980s, he helped undermine Communism in the Eastern Bloc by providing Xerox machines to copy banned texts, and supporting cultural exchanges with the West."

    He advocates for
    Education
    Government Accountability
    Health
    Rights and Justice

    Gullible people try to make this "issue" of black on black crime synonymous with blm movement its not. Crimes happens. White on white crimes happens more than any other "race" even when you adjust the numbers to make all the demographics equal.

    But, I will say...Unless you have a solution, STENTIREHU with your complaints. BLM is about police killing people and getting off.

    Here are 2 scenarios:

    1. Tyrone kills Tyreek: When Tyrone caught, he is arrested, placed in jail for about a year, goes to trial, gets convicted and remains in jail. If it is found that Tyrone is not guilty (by some miracle), he will still sit in jail for about a year and when released ain't got no job, no house, due to losign his job and has to start over.

    2. Officer Stanford kills Tyreek: The case, even with video, will be investigated, while this happens the officer will go on paid leave......it will be decided that there will be no charges and he goes back this life, job and might even have a GoFundMe account to cash out.

    Yeah, BLM isn't needed!! GO SITCHO AZZES DOWN!!

  • Branch Davidian

    Here's the deal. Just like any activist, credibility is KEY. When you start taking compensation from a person like Soros (or the Koch brothers if you're Republican), it is generally implied that you "go along to get along". With an organization like BLM, because it is so controversial, even the slightest appearance of impropriety dilutes the overall message. This guy needs to either divest himself and get back on message or just say he is using his platform (BLM) to move up the ladder. The issue is too important for BS like this.

    The Bush family has ties to the Nazis but guess what George HW and George W were elected president and Jeb Bush tried to run.

    But no one questioned their credibility.

  • Kilroy

    Puppet for the illuminati he is.

  • Branch Davidian

    That is a great question Roderick. Let me answer it in a couple of parts and tell me what you think.
    1. What Bush did, or Nixon did, or Clinton did is irrelevant to this subject. BLM is under attack from a variety of fronts. We live in a society where everything is questioned and scrutinized far more than when the Bushes came to power. As the "face" of BLM, this young man has to allow nothing to get in the way of what he is trying to accomplish. It may not be fair but it is the truth.
    2. George Soros is NOT a champion to minorities. He is a "disruptor" that capitalizes on instability. To him, minorities are commodities he uses to further his own individual agenda. Taking money from him is like a Latino Rights organization taking money from Donald Trump.
    This is a great discussion. Hope to hear what you have to say. Peace!

    Look people who hate BLM already hate BLM because it is shining a spotlight on institutional racism and in America that's a big no-no.

    Whoever is funding BLM, or paying for DeRay's accommodations is only relevant to someone who already has issues with BLM and is looking for some type of strawman to change the subject which is police brutality and an unequal justice system.

    Hold up, every job got a freaking 90 day policy where you can't take off to get time off and benefits. Must be nice to have all these days off in a week. I'm sorry but the dude is fame thirsty. I just didn't care for all that tweeting and as Rue Paul says, shashaying during the protest. When I saw him on the ground squatting to take a photo, I was done. How can you work for a school district and have an arrest record. That's one of the boxes you check to fill out a form. In no time I guarantee he will leave that job for his talk show or upcoming Del Ray BLM reality tv show. Say what you want, I think he started out with his heart in the right place now he's about hanging with the president, cozying up with the Knowles family and other celebrities. BLM says it's not about one person but yet he's the only one you keep hearing about in the news or on tv all the time posing.

    bloggers are the real ones who spark the conversations that have made their ways in political arenas. Sandra rose, mto blog conversations who receive no credit.
    Lol that's funny how many people make documentaries jump on bandwagons.
    Blogs that target African Americans are the number one leaders of movement. I watched everyone steal conversations from the bloggers and move it to mainstream word for word.

    EXACTLY, I am with you @IWASTETIME!!!!!! Great points!!! Who cares where he lives and how he makes his money. Its all legal and if he wasn't gay or black it would not matter!! He still is putting his life on the line and making the effort for a change! This just validates him even more because he doesn't have to , he is successful in his own right. But he is still fighting for the people who are not as fortunate and who are being slain because they are black! Not because they are rich or gay, but because they are black men just as he is. Shit he's living better than most and don't even have to maybe worry about these issues where he lives or maybe he does because its not the norm and he could be targeted even more for this fact. The facts presented in this article should make us applaud him even more so!!!

    I don't know about that other stuff he/she is saying...BUT being funded by Soros is like MLK being funded by the KKK. Get it now?

  • felicia

    That's right !!!!!! Say that shit again!!!!!!!! @unapologetically black!!! U get a 1000 up votes for this statement!

  • felicia

    Me too, I just usually read the comment and don't post anything but this shit got me mad!!!!

  • butchie4ever

    what does that matter....

  • askquestions

    Notice how you wrote "back in the days"......

  • askquestions

    lol. We are so quick to point of the exception. Lol.

    I'm pretty tired of you excuse making Afro Americans.

  • askquestions

    Boo hoo. Cry me a river with all your exception pointing.

    Ok. The couple is black, so what. Who then is responsible for #BlackLivesMatter's weak agenda. Pointing the finger, preaching to whites.

    Why won't this guy and that "rich black couple" get together and instead of trying to change whites, spend a preponderance of their time and resources showing blacks how to get like them....because after all, change doesn't come with changing minds, it comes from changing causes. Cause and effect.

    Exactly

  • Peter Piper ATL

    He left his home and moved to Ferguson with just the money he'd saved from his teaching job. He did that to help start and support a movement that has garnered the world's attention. He is trying to empower and uplift black people. He is an icon, a revolutionary and a modern American hero.

    And Sandra wants to tear him down.

    On the flip side, T.I. is a convicted felon, an admitted "former" drug dealer and frequent drug addict who was caught with guns and heard on tape plotting an assassination. He sells music that mostly encourages drug sales and murder of other black men--for whom he has done absolutely nothing for.

    And Sandra can't get enough of him.

    Deray McKesson is highly educated and absolutely qualified for that position. And Sandra you are getting more ridiculous with your gay bias and extreme penis envy.

  • Genia W-m

    McKesson knew what he was doing. How did he get that admin job? Now if he could offer some serious leadership with BLM he'd be really doing something.

  • Janice Collins

    What is a chief human capital officer? How does it relate to kids and education? What does the 4 mil translate to as far as service and or productivity. Who did the job before?

  • Anji

    The founder of BLM, a movement without specific membership, focuses on brutality in law enforcement. I belong to 3 organizations that focus on intraracial crime. Each group is needed. There are many, many more that target our urban area crime. Not sure why you think one man makes a movement or that he should show up when you think he should. If you're so concerned about that area, show up, organize your friends and family. We activists are many, but never enough. How have you contributed to the issues we need to continue to address? It's a hard task and unless you help the solution, you're part of the problem.

    No not really, but keep the conspiracy theories going.

    First this person implies that speaking truth to power about racism and a biased justice system causes 'instability' and now you're comparing George Soros to the KKK.

    The point you're missing is that people who don't like BLM's message want to focus on the messenger rather than the corruption in the justice system.

    If you want to learn something disturbing I suggest you google the GQ article about the Tamir Rice case and you'll understand why people are trying to de-legitimize BLM's message.

    What is in his refrigerator? Since we all up in the man job and house..

  • Charles_C

    point is if he felt that black lives matter he would take a few into his home and give them a place to call home.

    so?...

    I can see a lot of the ignoramuses in this comments section have no idea who the former Nazi collaborator George Soros is or what his "Open Society Institute" (aka the Open Borders Institute) is all about. George Soros has made billions of dollars profiteering off of economic and political chaos in the world.

    George Soros is also good friends with Bill and Hillary Clinton. Dearest Leader Hillary masterminded the train wreck that was killing Gaddafi in Libya and turning the entire country into a viper's nest of terrorists and feudal warlords. Dearest Leader Hillary has also been masterminding the arming and organization of radical jihad groups such as Islamic State in Syria to attempt to overthrow the Assad regime.

    All of this chaos in the Middle East has directly lead to the refugee crisis and thus we come full circle back to George Soros advocating for open borders in Europe and for Europe to allow in as many refugees as possible. In other words, George Soros' dear friends create the problems in the Middle East, then he offers the solution - which is to plunge Europe into total chaos that he can profit from.

    An amusing side note is that the organization called "Quantum" aka SPECTRE in the new James Bond films is named after George Soros' Quantum Investment Fund. The man is literally a James Bond villain in real life.

    So yes, it matters who pays your bills and gives you free housing. These things always come with strings attached. The Devil doesn't give free favors - he expects to collect something from you at the end of the day.

    It's possible that most of these people are jealous of Deray. If you're best day is grilling out back and you look at Deray McKesson living his best & brightest life, fighting for justice, I'm sure you do feel like not very much.
