New Yorkers react to BLM mural at Trump Tower
Young people who helped paint the Black Lives Mural on 5th Avenue in front of Trump Tower on Thursday said they hoped the president hears the message that they want to be respected and loved.
it shows that we matter and it shows to him that you can't ignore us. You can't ignore us not to be ignored. Way will be heard. And I'm here today because I wanted to spread the message that black lives matter Right now. The feeling that I have is very motivated. I'm motivated to do more for black lives in this country and throughout the world. People in this country been treated like second class citizens from the day that you were brought here against our will. And even though this is just a symbol, it's the beginning of something more. And I'm just excited and motivated for that morning and it's it was amazing feels, you know, I could be hopefully a part of history, you know, hopefully 20 years later, 30 years later, we can look back in the pictures and have someone Googles, who was here painted a memorial. My face severe. I think that it sends a clear message to the president that way. Want to be respected in love like everybody else in the nation on He can't ignore it. You can know what is right here in front of his face. Never offended by us saying black lives. So you said You just say I know that you guys. I plan on paint over it within the next 48 hours. I think this is a disgrace. All lives matter. I support all American citizens. Black lives matter. White lives matter. Brown lives matter. Every human life matters. But when you point out one race and play identity politics and say that you're oppressed, what does that really say?
