Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder, Patrisse Khan-Cullors has come under public scrutiny after purchasing a $1.4m home in Los Angeles.
According to reports, Patrisse Khan-Cullors‘s new neighborhood is mostly occupied by whites with just 2% of blacks residing in the area.
This information didn’t sit well with the black community as many took to Twitter to call out the BLM co-founder.
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.
