Walmart stops selling 'All Lives Matter' merchandise

Walmart is no longer selling "All Lives Matter" merchandise on its website.
America's largest retailer received backlash for T-shirts that featured variations of the "Black Lives Matter" slogan, including "All Lives Matter, "Blue Lives Matter," "Irish Lives Matter," and "Homeless Lives Matter."
The company said it will start putting emphasis on Black people and other people of color whose lives are being "impacted by ongoing racial injustice.''
According to Walmart, the shirts were being sold by third-party sellers on its website, but the "All Lives Matter" items will be removed "indefinitely" after the retailer heard from some employees and customers who were concerned about the meaning behind the merchandise.
