Posted on 06/06/2020 9:22:49 AM PDT by Mozilla
The city of Washington, D.C., is echoing a call for justice by ceremonially naming a road and painting an unmissable message on a street that leads to the White House: Black lives matter.
A section of 16th Street in front of the White House is now ceremonially named Black Lives Matter Plaza, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Friday. Earlier, the road was painted with huge yellow letters spelling out the name of the movement.
"We want to call attention today to making sure our nation is more fair and more just and that black lives and that black humanity matter in our nation," Bowser said.
A green street sign reading Black Lives Matter Plaza was affixed Friday morning to a lamp post outside St. John's Church. That's where federal forces used munitions and pepper spray on Monday to clear peaceful protesters and make way for President Donald Trump to take a photo outside the iconic yellow and white building, which was damaged by a fire during protests.
Before dawn Friday, a D.C. Department of Public Works crew closed the street so painting could begin. The yellow letters stretch from curb to curb of 16th Street NW between H and K streets.

The next mayor will probably pave over it, or just allow the print to deteriorate. It would take a lot of time and federal money to maintain those huge yellow letters. That street name needs to be reversed as well. BLM is too divisive.
Defacing government property. Arrest them.
Any streets named Hispanic Lives Matter? Asian Lives Matter? All Lives Matter?
The street that points directly at the front door of the White House, through Lafayette Square. Same block where the “peaceful protestors” burned the historic ‘church of presidents.’ This is a big FU to our country from forces that wish to topple us.
Totally ignorant Canadian here. How could a mayor of any city have authority to evict anyone from a private hotel, let alone the National Guard in the Nations Capital? What kind of fd up system do you have that gives kind of authority to a mayor? She should be in jail for insurrection and obstruction of justice.
Libs can really get stuff done in a hurry when they are pandering to their base, but when its time to do real work, theyre always AWOL
Next up, LGBQ. They haven’t had any attention lately.
And the exclamation point is The White House. You know that is next to change when Trump is no longer there in January 2025.
Hey, why not do this on “the former” Monument Avenue in Richmond. That would certainly add value to the neighborhood.
Just about all of this crap is for appearances. Look at us. Look at our signs. See how upset we are. Watch us do what we do on TV. Let us show the world what kind of people we really are.
It’s a deliberate insult to Trump. Anyone who didn’t think this WHOLE crisis was about getting Trump had better think again.
When will they rename the city? It is named after a slave owner.
When does the city come back to add the Dead End sign?
I wonder how much it cost to paint that. I’m sure this racist -itch will be coming to the federal government for more money because she doesn’t have enough to run her city, but she can find $$ for that BS act.
It would only take a few buckets of paint in the middle of the night to eradicate BLACK and replace it with ALL.
“It would only take a few buckets of paint...”
Small things amuse small minds.
Sterling idea and it would cause Bowser’s head to explode.
