As Twitchy reported Friday, Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors reportedly purchased a compound in Topanga Canyon, California near Malibu for $1.4 million in an area that is only 1.4 percent African American. The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation has put out a statement on this “false and dangerous story” clarifying that Cullors serves in a volunteer capacity as executive director of the BLMGNF.

According to The Post Millennial, the statement goes on to read:

Patrisse’s work for Black people over the years has made her and others who align with the fight for Black liberation targets of racist violence.

The narratives being spread about Patrisse have been generated by right-wing forces intent on reducing the support and influence of a movement that is larger than any one organization.

This right-wing offensive not only puts Patrisse, her child and her loved ones in harm’s way, it also continues a tradition of terror by white supremacists against Black activists.

All Black activists know the fear these malicious and serious actions are meant to instill: the fear of being silenced, the trauma of being targeted, the torture of feeling one’s family is exposed to danger just for speaking out against unjust systems.

We have seen this tactic of terror time and again, but our movement will not be silenced.

All we did was report that she bought one expensive compound near Malibu; we’re not sure who put her, her child, and her loved ones in harm’s way.

“Many conservatives, including Candace Owens and Jason Whitlock, were simply horrified that an avowed Marxist would be indulging in capitalistic luxuries,” writes Libby Emmons.

She shouldn’t be afraid for her safety; her new community is probably protected by a well-funded police force.
