The co-founder of Black Lives Matter has found a personal solution for the big black crime wave that she has done so much to instigate. From Dirt, a real estate website:

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors Lands Topanga Canyon Compound

By Mark David

April 7, 2021 1:56 pm PT

Buyer: Patrisse Khan-Cullors
Location: Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles, Calif.
Price: $1.4 million
Year: 2003
Specs: (approx.) 2,400 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms plus 1-bed/1-bath guesthouse
Lot Size, .27 acres

A secluded mini-compound tucked into L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon was recently sold for a tad more than $1.4 million to a corporate entity that public records show is controlled by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37-year-old social justice visionary and co-founder of the galvanizing and, for some, controversial Black Lives Matter movement.

Kahn-Cullors, a UCLA and USC graduate married about five years ago to social activist (and amateur boxer) Janaya Khan, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, created the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag in 2013 in response to George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin. Since then, the largely decentralized movement has been at the influential forefront on issues of police brutality and racially motivated violence against Black people, particularly in the wake of George Floyd’s killing last summer that sparked massive protests across the United States and around the globe. Kahn-Cullors’ published “When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir” in 2018.

A winding 15 minute drive from The Commons at Calabasas and a slightly longer and somewhat less serpentine drive from Malibu’s Getty Villa, the pint-sized compound spans about one-quarter of an acre. The property’s not-quite 2,400 square feet is divided between the a three-bedroom and two-bath main house and a separate one-bed/one-bath apartment capable of hosting guests long term with a private entry and a living room with kitchenette.

$1.4 mil is cheap for a house in Topanga Canyon, so it’s not luxurious.

The amusing thing is that Topanga Canyon is culturally the whitest spot in the Los Angeles area: it’s been a semi-rural hippie enclave for bohemian artists since the 1960s. The last time I went hiking there, I saw Emmy Lou Harris out for a hike.

Residents over the years have included Woody Guthrie, Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Jim Morrison, Van Morrison, Neil Diamond, Neil Young, and Stephen Stills. During the mellow singer-songwriter boom of the 1970s, Topanga Canyon was associated with Laurel Canyon as constituting a scene. (I can’t really tell Laurel Canyon and Topanga Canyon rock stars apart, although I’m sure somebody could tell you the difference.)

Topanga was not popular with black musicians, although Taj Mahal lived there and Marvin Gaye moved in in 1973. His wife says he had an AK-47 and giant dogs for protection.

Topanga is not terribly welcoming to outsiders. Back before GPS, the locals would frequently tear down the road sign pointing to the trailhead of the Topanga Canyon State Park.

But it’s perhaps the safest non-gated community in Los Angeles County for staying far, far away from black crime. Topanga was only 1.4% black in the 2010 Census and 84.5% non-Hispanic white, which is very white for L.A. County. Of course, Black Lives Matter has gotten thousands of incremental blacks murdered by other blacks, but Ms. Khan-Cullors’ black life matters enough to stay secluded from other blacks.

    White House proposes cash payments to Central Americans to stem migration


    The Biden administration is considering sending cash payments to Central Americans in a bid to prevent them from making the trek north, Reuters reported Friday.

    The potential cash transfers would be targeted at residents of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, which make up the highest number of migrants illegally crossing the border, Roberta Jacobson, the White House’s southern border coordinator, told the outlet.

    “We’re looking at all of the productive options to address both the economic reasons people may be migrating, as well as the protection and security reasons,” she said in an interview.

  2. It’s perhaps the safest non-gated community in Los Angeles County for avoiding black crime.

    Thus the question: do the lesbian pioneers of color Khan & Cullors invite the hood over to shoot they guns in tha air like ya just don’t care, or – like most blacks who hit the jackpot – do they buy guard dogs and motion sensors to keep them out?

    If they had in any way earned their net worth by the sweat of their brow, the answer would be B. But woke money is usually free money, pried out of taxpayer and/or white corporate pockets, so I’d invest in a good pair of noise-blocking ear buds if I were a Topanga local: all that celebratory gunfire can play hob on an old hippie’s nerves.

    It was probably a 4 bedroom house. Someone put an outside door in a bedroom with an adjoining bath. Or it’s a tiny maids room with a tiny bathroom and outside door. Even in LA, 1/4 acre isn’t a compound. It’s cheap for the area. At that low price, it’s probably a maintenance nightmare. Could be built by an incompetent contractor by unskilled hippie or illegal workers. Probably a lot of remodeling work done by a homeowner who didn't know what he was doing. If it’s wood or stucco full of dry rot. Sewer pipes bad welds and packed solid with roots because it hasn’t been rotor rooted in 30 years.

    'Do they really refer to a small house on a small lot as a “compound”?'

    I agree. This seems like an attempt to tarnish the reputation of the woman who purchased this property -- to make her out to be a hypocrite. But it sounds like a pretty modest home.

    The establishment media did the exact same thing when left-wing YouTube personality Jimmy Dore bought a small house with an adjacent, insulated workshop. Suddenly Dore was said to have acquired a 'compound'...

    White House proposes cash payments to Central Americans to stem migration


    The Biden administration is considering sending cash payments to Central Americans in a bid to prevent them from making the trek north, Reuters reported Friday.

    The potential cash transfers would be targeted at residents of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, which make up the highest number of migrants illegally crossing the border, Roberta Jacobson, the White House’s southern border coordinator, told the outlet.

    “We’re looking at all of the productive options to address both the economic reasons people may be migrating, as well as the protection and security reasons,” she said in an interview.

The “barefoot realtor,” a graphic and ceramic artist himself, installed compatible spirits in the fairly rough and humble cabins of the canyon, as I recall them – though I hasten to add that my visits were few and long ago. His realty office / health food store / social center one night sheltered a comfortable evening gathering while he ranted radically about the nation that I was proudly inheriting, so I was politely drop-jawed at the time. He built a stage for performances by such as Will Geer, Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Ramblin’ Jack, Lord Buckley, and Odetta.

    Around the same time, early 1980s, a friend and I were driving through North Georgia (Deliverance Country) to do some rock climbing. For reasons that baffled even me, my friend managed to drive his car into a ditch which we couldn't get out of. We weren't exactly in the middle of nowhere, but we weren't on the main highway either. We struggled for a while to get ourselves unstuck, and then a battered white station wagon came down the road. The driver stopped and asked us what we were doing. After we explained the situation, he got his whole family out of the car -- wife and kids -- to help us lift up the back end of the car and get it out of the ditch.

    Before they left, he advised that if "the Law" came along I should tell them that I had been driving, as he assumed that any driver who had done something like this must've been drunk. He probably had a good time telling his friends later about these morons from the city who drove their car straight into a ditch for no particular reason.

    As you might be able to tell from my prose, I haven’t studied grammar since 1972. I actually don’t remember much of anything about pronouns. How many pronouns is a person supposed to have?

    When I first had a cellphone, I got into a long business call after visiting Walmart on my way to the airport. I didn't realize I couldn't talk business and navigate at the same time, so I wound up lost in a hollow in the Ozarks with some beady eyed hillbillies on their porches staring at my to see if I was an ATF or DEA agent. I hung up.

    1980. I traveled cross country on my motorcycle. Got lost in backwoods East Texas. Out of state tags, I feared for my life. Just then I passed a nice clean house and a coupla 10yr old girls smiled and waved hello. That was when I became aware that I am an asshole.

    Around the same time, early 1980s, a friend and I were driving through North Georgia (Deliverance Country) to do some rock climbing. For reasons that baffled even me, my friend managed to drive his car into a ditch which we couldn’t get out of. We weren’t exactly in the middle of nowhere, but we weren’t on the main highway either. We struggled for a while to get ourselves unstuck, and then a battered white station wagon came down the road. The driver stopped and asked us what we were doing. After we explained the situation, he got his whole family out of the car — wife and kids — to help us lift up the back end of the car and get it out of the ditch.

    Before they left, he advised that if “the Law” came along I should tell them that I had been driving, as he assumed that any driver who had done something like this must’ve been drunk. He probably had a good time telling his friends later about these morons from the city who drove their car straight into a ditch for no particular reason.

    This will likely be another bad fire year in Southern California because of little rain.
     
    And it will be a bad fire year when we have a lot of rain -- all that new vegetation will be more fuel for fires when it dries out in the Summer.

    Moral to the story -- California is already vastly over-populated, despite innumerate reassurances from ecological ignoramuses ("environmental justice" warriors, "developers," over-breeding immigrants, Goldman-Sachs economists, etc.).

    Moral to the story — California is already vastly over-populated…

    And over-population is a large component in most of the pressing concerns: climate change; migration; resource depletion/degradation; lack of space for social distancing to keep us all from succumbing to the latest pathogen; etc.

    But we’ve built a system that enables DMX the rapper to have 15 kids, so we are supposed to be quiet as the darkness descends. Just close your eyes and think of diversity, inclusion, and equity.

    She may own more homes than Bernie Sanders!!

    NY Post article:

    "As protests broke out across the country in the name of Black Lives Matter, the group’s co-founder went on a real estate-buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records."

    "Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37, also eyed property in the Bahamas at an ultra-exclusive resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods both have homes, The Post has learned."

    Thanks. Lots of interesting information in that. Her looking at units in a Bahamas enclave of $5-20M units was especially interesting. The other cases don’t seem that ridiculous (the Georgia house seems most extreme to me even though it cost less than a third of the house in Topanga canyon), but the apparent lack of sales during the moving up process is telling.

    This graphic serves as a nice summary.

    I was about to make the same comment. Do they really refer to a small house on a small lot as a "compound"? I know realtors are famous for puffing up modest properties in their descriptions, but this is some next level BS.

    ‘Do they really refer to a small house on a small lot as a “compound”?’

    I agree. This seems like an attempt to tarnish the reputation of the woman who purchased this property — to make her out to be a hypocrite. But it sounds like a pretty modest home.

    The establishment media did the exact same thing when left-wing YouTube personality Jimmy Dore bought a small house with an adjacent, insulated workshop. Suddenly Dore was said to have acquired a ‘compound’…
