Black Lives Matter co-founder erects fence, electric gate around her $1.4m house in white neighbourhood



Black Lives Matter co-founder, Patrisse Cullors, who resigned as executive director of the group’s foundation amid criticism over her lavish lifestyle, has reportedly erected a fence and electric gate around her $1.4 million LA home.

According to reports, her home is located in a virtually all-white neighborhood which led to her being called out on social media. The neighborhood has less than 2% of black population.

Photos published by the Daily Mail show the newly installed barriers at the 2,380-square-foot property, which Cullors, 37, closed on in March.

A neighbor told the news outlet that a subcontractor told him the wooden fencing at the ritzy home in Topanga Canyon would surround the entire property and estimated the job to be in 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.

Cullors paid for the house in cash, according to a celebrity real estate blog.

“There is no mortgage holder on the property,” a local realtor who checked the title documents told the outlet, adding that the home was bought by an entity called “Abolitionist Entertainment, LLC.”

Cullors last month announced she was resigning as executive director of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, which she had led for almost six years, to focus on a book and TV deal.
