The DC mayor had "Black Lives Matter" painted onto 16th St behind the White House this morning. Street signs are also switched out ones that say "Black Lives Matter."
Although performative, this is gonna piss off a lot of gov officials, politicians, tourists, and trumpers.
Now that I think about it, this BLM street mural is interesting in a city so heavily professionalized and "careerist." There's no many street murals, even less so ones that are obviously political.
@johnpierremaeli I really hope a satellite captures this
This and other nonviolent means are the way to protest. If you're not attacking and the police respond to peaceful efforts with force, that's how you get and keep the moral high ground.
@johnpierremaeli This is the greatest thing
@johnpierremaeli It's going to piss off one very specific person. Which is why the mayor did it.
I don't know much about DC politics, but from reading about this today it seems that she is trying to make a hard point to the President about who runs the city outside of the White House fence.
