People like acting obtuse.


Exactly. I don't believe she is literally taking money from donations and buying houses or using it for herself. But she nor the other women were millionaires before this.


They are millionaires now because of the corporate money thrown at them for "activism". "Activism" that does not include any legal framework, political work etc. They are basically corporate mascots. They claimed they are marxists yet sign multi-year deals with corporations for their own personal gain.

I know it is a good deal for them but it sucks because the money could actually go to good use in the black community. These folks only care about transgender/gender queerness whatever sexual/gender stuff in the black community.

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors Lands Topanga Canyon Compound​







Buyer: Patrisse Khan-Cullors
Location: Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles, Calif.
Price: $1.4 million
Specs: (approx.) 2,400 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms plus 1-bed/1-bath guesthouse
Lot Size: .27 acres


A secluded mini-compound tucked into L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon was recently sold for a tad more than $1.4 million to a corporate entity that public records show is controlled by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37-year-old social justice visionary and co-founder of the galvanizing and, for some, controversial Black Lives Matter movement.
Kahn-Cullors, a UCLA and USC graduate married about five years ago to social activist (and amateur boxer) Janaya Khan, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, created the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag in 2013 in response to George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin. Since then, the largely decentralized movement has been at the influential forefront on issues of police brutality and racially motivated violence against Black people, particularly in the wake of George Floyd’s killing last summer that sparked massive protests across the United States and around the globe. Kahn-Cullors’ published “When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir” in 2018.

A winding 15 minute drive from The Commons at Calabasas and a slightly longer and somewat less serpentine drive from Malibu’s Getty Villa, the pint-sized compound spans about one-quarter of an acre. The property’s not-quite 2,400 square feet is divided between the a three-bedroom and two-bath main house and a separate one-bed/one-bath apartment capable of hosting guests long term with a private entry and a living room with kitchenette.
Interior spaces feature bamboo floors and, in the spacious open-plan living room, dining area and kitchen, vaulted ceilings clad in knotty pine. A whitewashed raised hearth brick fireplace anchors the living room and numerous skylights baths the cavernous space with natural light.
The two guest bedrooms and hall bathroom are fairly ordinary, as is the simple and up-to-date though not especially high-end kitchen, while the primary bedroom offers a vaulted and wood-clad ceiling plus a small sitting area with glass sliders to the backyard.
An un-landscaped dust bowl with little charm besides the natural beauty of the trees and rugged mountains that envelope the property, the backyard offers little more than a covered patio for alfresco dining, a small deck and a tiny freestanding cabin best suited as a home office, meditation retreat or art studio.
The listing was managed by Stefanie Becker at Coldwell Banker Realty and the buyer by Nina Kurtz at Compass.




1. The house is ugly.
2. The house looks cheap.
3. That little "apartment" out back reminds me of outhouses that my country relatives had.
4. People who work for non-profits (or religious organizations, for that matter) living expensive lives is not a good look. Like, people should have a living wage but living in million dollar + homes, luxury cars, etc. is a bit hypocritical to your dedication of "service."

Looks dated and needs to be landscaped. I don’t think it’s bad, but I guess for that price in California you would need to do some work.

People always want black women to work for free. Then when they end up old and by themselves like Rosa Parks someone outside of the community must help them.

Same thing nearly happened to Coretta, because Martin gave his earnings to the SCLC. When he was killed, some of the donations were sent to the SCLC instead of directly to her - they kept the money. Starting the foundation is what kept her and the kids afloat.

Now, if BLM is indeed committing some kind of malfeasance, that needs to be investigated. But I don't begrudge this woman a house. Especially not one this modest. Sounds like she's paying for the location.

Does anyone know what the founders were doing before they found their "calling"? There’s been a lack of transparency regarding how the funds will be allocated and quiet frankly the IRS should do an audit.

I don’t support any “activist”

it don’t take much of anything to be loud on social media and don’t have a job but protest all day.

but good for her, get it how you live it. I have no hate for a black people who come up. You only have one life to live, live that shit for YOU

No one would care about the "optics" of an npo cofounder buying a $1000000+ home if there was actually some transparency in the organization's finances. So, yes I sideeye tf out of this.

I def would worry about wildfires in that area. It is sooo dry and a bit isolated up those hills. Its a bit further out from Malibu/Calabasas area.

This is shameful. "Black Lives Matter" but you're buying a million-dollar house next door to Calabasas and Malibu, no black people to be seen except the celebrities. Meanwhile what has BLM built for the people of Ferguson? Chicago? Detroit? San Francisco? This is incredibly shameful and I feel for the families of the deceased that she used to prop herself up.

They don't seem to know leaders of top non profits earn six figures. A Black male CEO of a non profit took 1 million as his salary from the 5 that was raised, lol.

Yes he did
She was attacked by a black man
That’s the shit they all don’t mention, I told a family member and they all stared lmao. I said who the hell y’all think helped her Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton FOH. That’s why I don’t mule or give back anything to that faux community it’s not for women. The little ceaser CEO had paid her rent in Detroit. Black women stop this shit wake up.

Did anyone read that listing? I read a lot of shade in it. Maybe that's how these things are written but the descriptions leaned in the negative rather than positive. I read one slight after another:

"Since then, the largely decentralized movement" (referring to BLM)

"The two guest bedrooms and hall bathroom are fairly ordinary, as is the simple and up-to-date though not especially high-end kitchen"

"The property’s not-quite 2,400 square feet"

"An un-landscaped dust bowl with little charm besides the natural beauty of the trees"

"The backyard offers little more than a covered patio for alfresco dining"

It's California and there's some land (1/4 acre) so I'm not surprised by the price. I actually don't consider it to be extravagant and I'm not surprised since she's also an author and public speaker. I know nothing about the financial structure of BLM and didn't realize there was so much controversy.

eta for my spelling

IKYFL.

One-point-four million dollars, and all she has is 2400 sq ft and a quarter of an acre? :sidefrown

And they got the gall to call it a compound.



I guess it looks okay on the inside, but it has zero curb appeal. It looks dusty. But let me hush and go do something productive for a couple of hours.
They’re trying to make it seem likes she’s using BLM donations to fund a lavish lifestyle. The southern Californian housing market is very competitive. It’s not unusual in LA for 1500 square foot houses to go for 9000000 or even a million. I have family in SoCal and they had to move out in the desert because of how expensive houses are getting.

Eh, not a good look because people will assume negative things. Personally, I definitely would’ve bought a nice house (activists deserve nice things) but something way cheaper than $1.4 million.
The housing market in places like NY and LA is expensive. Unless you want to hear gunshots at night you are paying over a million for a house. And these are not mansions these are like 1200 square foot houses

There is no righteousness in poverty and I am the first to cheer for Black women getting to a bag but this is shady shady business and I am beyond disappointed the way this has all played out. To have accusations of theft from literal mothers of victims and the opaquness of how the organization handled funding is painful. It didn't even have to be this way because people pushed to get the original trio to install some kind of framework early on and they refused. Now looking back we can see why they were so resistant.

Obviously Patrice is entitled to buy whatever she wants with her money but I'm always see her differently because of how this all went down and who ultimately got left in the dust.

Y’all are about to show out, but I have no problems with activists receiving big deals for their activism

Prices in Los Angeles are outrageous, though. That is all that $1,400,000 buys?
She could of purchased, for that price, a much bigger and better house in Ladera Heights, View Park/Windsor Hills or Baldwin Hills...you know predominantly upper middle class Black communities.
