NYC Paints “Black Lives Matter” Outside Trump Tower

HeadlineJul 10, 2020

Here in New York, the city has painted the words “Black Lives Matter” in large, bright yellow letters just outside Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue. Mayor Bill de Blasio took part in the painting. Anthony Beckford of Black Lives Matter Brooklyn supported the city’s move.

Anthony Beckford: “When people look at this thing here, those who really are filled with hate, they become empowered by that. Now we’re countering them, letting them understand that we will be at the doorsteps of hate, and we will basically get rid of the ideology of white supremacy and racism.”
