BLM Co-founder Builds Fence, Gate around Lavish $1.4M Home
Patrisse Cullors splashes out on security barrier just weeks after resigning from BLM
Patrisse Cullors, the "trained Marxist" co-founder of Black Lives Matter, has erected a fence and electric gate around her $1.4 million LA home just weeks after she resigned as an executive director of BLM amid criticism of her lavish lifestyle.
The photos, which were published by the Daily Mail, show barriers at the 2,380-square-foot property.
According to a neighbor, a sub-contractor told him that wooden fencing would surround the entire property, which would cost within the “$35,000 range.”
“It will have an electronic gate at the driveway portion, a walk-up door, and call box, and other safety measures, cameras, you know, to keep the riffraff out,” he told the Daily Mail.
According to a celebrity real estate blog, Cullors paid for the house in cash.
“There is no mortgage holder on the property,” a local realtor who checked the title documents told the outlet.
The home was bought by an entity called “Abolitionist Entertainment, LLC," the realtor added.
BLMGNF said in a statement:
Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF) today announced that BLM Co-Founder and current Executive Director, Patrisse Cullors, would be transitioning from her role and named two Senior Executives to support the organization.
Cullors leaves BLMGNF in a strong position to support grassroots, art/culture work, and policy work that invests in the future of Black lives. During her tenure, Cullors helped the organization reach several milestones.
“I’ve created the infrastructure and the support, and the necessary bones and foundation, so that I can leave,” she said at the time.
“It feels like the time is rig."
Neon Nettle reported earlier last month that the support for Black Lives Matter (BLM) had taken a nosedive.
BLM's profits soared following the death of George Floyd in 2020 but now have fallen back to 2019 levels.
Black Lives Matter said it raked in a staggering $90 million in donations last year.
However, there’s mounting criticism that the movement — which fomented riots across the United States — has not shared its massive haul with the black community.
Last month, the father of Michael Brown — whose 2014 shooting by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, was the catalyst for the 2016 BLM riots — demanded that the group fork over $20 million to him.
Sports journalist Jason Whitlock, who is himself black, sarcastically called out Cullors for her blatant hypocrisy.
“Black Lives Matter founder buys $1.4 million home in Topanga, which has a black population of 1.4%. She’s with her people!” he tweeted Friday in a now-removed post.
