In case you were wondering, ONLY #BlackLivesMatter. Just ask Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook. We’re talking signs of the times.
We’ll come right back to Mr. Zuckerberg, but first, we need to address the overt racism in Memphis.
Can you imagine the chagrin in the mayor’s office when these billboards were discovered in his fair city.
Oh, the horror.
“I think in some aspects it’s shameful that the brand [Lamar Advertising] is being co-opted, but once again it was never meant to say ‘only black lives matter,” said Darrel Ross, Co-Executive Direction at LINC Community Revitalization, Genius that he is, he sees the signs as exclusive to black people. As does the NAACP.
I’m sure Zuckerberg will be holding any Facebook events in Memphis. It looks like the racism that has overtaken Memphis is seeping into Zuckerberg’s Silicon Valley Facebook headquarters.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is scolding employees for what he calls “several recent instances” of people crossing out “black lives matter” on signature walls at the company’s headquarters and writing “all lives matter” instead.
In a note posted to employees on a company announcement page, published by Gizmodo, Zuckerberg says he and several other leaders at the company have previously warned employees against doing this. “I was already very disappointed by this disrespectful behavior before, but after my communication, I now consider this malicious as well,” Zuckerberg writes.
I’d love to see a count on the number of black employees Zuckerberg has who aren’t trimming lawns or cleaning toilets. Oh wait! Those aren’t black either! They’re illegals from Mexico.
Zuckerberg is a rank hypocrite. But then what would you expect, he lives in California and he’s a very rich Democrat.
