Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has splurged on a $35,000 fence to protect her mansion she bought while leading the social justice organization.
Cullors has begun building a large security fence around her $1.4 million mansion in California. The "trained Marxist" recently stepped away from her role in the BLM movement to focus on television appearances and book deals.
A neighbor told the Daily Mail that a subcontractor said that the wooden fencing at the lavish home in California 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 outlet. Cullors bought the home for cash according to reports.
"There is no mortgage holder on the property," a local realtor who checked the title documents told the Dirt, adding that the home was bought by an entity called "Abolitionist Entertainment, LLC."
Cullors announced last month she was resigning as executive director of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, which she had marshalled for almost six years, to focus on a book and TV deal. "I've created the infrastructure and the support, and the necessary bones and foundation, so that I can leave," she said at the time. "It feels like the time is right."
Black Lives Matter as an organization seems to be in shambles and chapters across the country as well family members of those killed by police whom BLM claim to represent are now seeking financial transparency and internal transformation.
Millions of dollars in donations seems to have gone unaccounted for and local chapters say they aren't getting the support they were promised.
