The cofounder of BLM just bought a $1.4 million L.A. "compound" in a rich, largely white neighborhood

Apr 9th

Being a social justice activist sure does pay well:

Think about this: systemic racism is so rampant in our nation that a black woman can buy a "canyon compound" in one of the most affluent neighborhoods and fill it with creature comforts that kings of old couldn't have possibly imagined.

"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."

Here are a few photos:

Some might point out that L.A. homes are all quite expensive, but I'd point to the hundreds of millions of Americans that can't afford a Californian estate.

Don't pretend for one second that living on a secluded ranch on SoCal 15 minutes from Malibu is anything other than privileged.

It seems to me that the American Dream is actually so real and so exceptional that even those who make money off their disdain for her can get rich!

It's too bad for all those black businesses BLM burned down last summer though...
