Police in Martinez, California, are seeking a white man and woman who were filmed defacing a city-permitted Black Lives Matter street mural on Independence Day. In the video, posted to YouTube, an onlooker can be heard asking a woman who is slathering black paint over the vibrant yellow block letters, “What’s wrong with you?” “We’re sick of this narrative, that’s what’s wrong,” replies a male voice offscreen. “The narrative of police brutality, the narrative of oppression, the narrative of racism–it’s a lie.”(Snip) “This is racism is what it is,” said the man of the sign, as he came into view wearing

Comments:

The only negative here is that the couple didn't bring more paint and some friends. I'd have helped.

Did you think only conservative icons were smash-able, lefty? What statue or image do you think you will erect that will stay up? You're teaching everyone the proper way to deal with public displays they don't like.

Will the city officials who permitted Black Lives Matter to be painted on the street allow someone to paint MAGA on the street? Of course not because the city officials are afraid of what BLM and Antifa might do -but, they are not afraid of that tyrant dictator DJ Trump's supporters. Why not? Disgusting cowards

Seems to me that painting large yellow letters on a road is a major safety hazard. These people were just trying to fix that before someone gets hurt.

I doubt if this couple are liberals in conservative clothing, trying to stir up the liberal crowd. They are galvanizing conservatives to fight back. That would be stupid. Of course, they video themselves committing vandalism and post the videos on social media, so they're not the sharpest knives in the drawer.

An emergency room nurse heading home from her shift over the weekend was brutally beaten with a cane inside a Bronx subway station in an unprovoked attack, police said Monday. Irina Langdon, 53, was on the mezzanine in the 149th St.-Grand Concourse No. 4 line station around 11:45 p.m. Saturday when a man attacked her without warning, cops said. He struck her multiple times with a cane in the head, arms and ribs. Two Metropolitan Transportation Authority workers called 911, and Langdon was taken to the emergency room at Lincoln Hospital—where she had been working earlier in the night in the pediatric department.

CNN has determined that “master bedroom” carries racist connotations, as do several other commonly used terms and phrases, including “blacklist,” “cakewalk,” and the “peanut gallery.” The English language is fraught with words and phrases that carry racist connotations, (Snip) both of whom presented the problematic terms in a piece published Monday. Many of the phrases used are “so entrenched that Americans don’t think twice about using them,”(Snip) are directly rooted in the nation’s history with chattel slavery. Others now evoke racist notions about Black people,” they wrote, concluding that America’s “reckoning with systemic racism” is “forcing a more critical look at the language we use.”
