LOS ANGELES — Patrisse Khan-Cullors, the leader of Black Lives Matter and a self-described Marxist, recently purchased a $1.4 million home in an exclusive Los Angeles neighborhood where the vast majority of residents are white, according to reports.
The home, which features three bedrooms and three bathrooms, is nestled in Topanga Canyon and has a separate guesthouse on the property, according to a celebrity real estate blog which reported the transaction last week.
The property, which is about a 15 minute drive from Malibu beaches, features bamboo floors and vaulted ceilings, according to the listing.
Topanga Canyon is a location to sprawling homes where 88 percent of the residents are white. After the sale of the property was made public, critics took to social media to blast Khan-Cullors, New York Post reported.

Black Lives Matter, which began as a hashtag in response to the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin, took in more than $90 million last year and was at the forefront of protests across the country after the death of George Floyd in May.
Khan-Cullors, 37, signed a multi-platform deal with Warner Bros in October, although it is not clear how much she is paid by BLM since their finances flow through a complex web of for-profit and nonprofit corporate entities, The Post reported.
Further investigation reveals the large compound purchased by Patrisse Khan-Cullors was not the only piece of real estate she has invested in recently. The activist, who comes from a modest upbringing, has spent over $3.2 million on four properties across the United States since 2016. Read more.
