Yeah. Somebody put up a banner in Union City, California that said "White Lives Matter" ... and the city thinks it's a really, really big deal.
The city released this statement:
"The City is disgusted by this despicable act of vandalism that has occurred on the heels of the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week and on the weekend of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday that celebrates the life and achievements of this important civil rights leader."
The mayor of Union City said this:
"Any kind of racism in Union City is unwelcome and will not be tolerated. It is alarming for anybody to put up a ‘white lives matter' banner because it connotates the racism going on in this country with events happening, trying to take over the Capitol."
Freddye M. Davis, president of NAACP South Hayward and Alameda County, said this:
"It's unbelievable that in this day and age, after 50 years, they still believe that. This systemic racism has got to go."
Still believe what? That white lives matter?
Is that really such a horrific thing to say, especially after the BLM movement along with all its radical social and political implications has been shoved down our collective throat for the past year? After huge crowds chanting "black lives matter" literally burned cities to the ground, terrorized citizens, and were responsible for dozens of deaths?
A stupid sign that says "white lives matter" is really "racist" and "despicable" and that big of a friggin deal?
