Black Live Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors has faced criticism after purchasing a $1.4 million home in Los Angeles, California.
According to reports, her new home was virtually an all white neighborhood which led to her being called out on social media. The area were the house is located, has less than 2% of black population.
Khan-Cullor, 37, is the creator of the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag, which she first created in 2013 following the killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman.
Outkick’s Jason Whitlock commented, “Black Lives Matter founder buys $1.4 million home in Topanga, which has a black population of 1.4%. She’s with her people!”
Her new property takes up a quarter of an acre and includes multiple buildings. One of the houses includes three bedrooms and a bathroom, while another separate building, a guest house, includes one bedroom and one bathroom as a residence for visitors.
The BLM movement became more global during the worldwide protests of George Floyd’s killing in the summer of 2020 by Minneapolis police. The organization revealed it raised $90 million in donations in 2020
