On a busy public boulevard in Oakland, California, activists wrote this past June in sprawling pastel-colored letters: “All Black Trans Queer Nonbinary Women’s Disabled Imprisoned Lives Matter.” In nearby San Francisco, the enormous bright yellow words “Black Lives Matter” were emblazoned on a three-block stretch on another busy public way. A third public street, this time in Martinez, California, was painted over with a similarly gigantic bright “Black Lives Matter” statement. But when a modest “White Lives Matter” banner showed up last week about an hour’s drive from Martinez at the corner of a public way in Union City, it was deemed illegal because it was on public property and ordered removed, KGO-TV reported.
