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.
