Vandals Cut Out 'Black' From Church's 'Black Lives Matter' Sign, Twice
A 'Black Lives Matter' sign outside a Maryland church was vandalized for the second time in less than a month this week.
A "Black Lives Matter" sign has been vandalized for the second time in a month outside a Maryland church.
The River Road Unitarian Universalist Congregation, which is reportedly predominantly white, wanted to show their support for African Americans amid racial tensions by placing a “Black Lives Matter” sign outside their church.
Vandals then defaced the sign by cutting out the word “Black” and leaving just “Lives Matter” as the slogan.
The first time the sign was vandalized was on July 29, the church replaced it within weeks and was defaced again on Tuesday.
Rev. Louise Green, the church’s minister for congressional life, wrote on Facebook: “We are sad and angry about this violation of our public witness.
“We are not backing down and we remain in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, as part of our [Unitarian Universalist Association] social justice action."
Our second Black Lives Matter banner was vandalized today. We are sad and angry about this violation of our public...Posted by River Road Unitarian Universalist Congregation RRUUC on Tuesday, August 11, 2015
The congregation reportedly has a new sign ready to go in the same location.
