In the past two months, hundreds of corporations, all the professional sports franchises and political leaders of both parties have expressed support for the group Black Lives Matter (BLM). Any expression of “All Lives Matter” has been deemed to be racist. For example, a Sacramento Kings broadcaster lost his job for tweeting “All Lives Matter.” In New Orleans, a Mardi Gras krewe captain faced withering criticism and the defection of members and bands for a similar message. A local teacher was fired because her husband painted “We All Matter” and other slogans on his fence. It seems clear that in the politically correct climate today, everyone must express support for BLM or face withering backlash.
In the span of just over one month, a plethora of changes have occurred in the world, all to appease the politically correct guardians who now monitor every aspect of our society. After the brutal killing of African American George Floyd by a vicious white Minneapolis police officer, the entire world has changed.
While there have been some peaceful protests, there have been way too many criminals who have used the occasion to engage in rioting and looting. Across the nation, innocent business owners have been targeted by these destructive hooligans.
