In response to the mural, which was ordered by D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser, Black Lives Matter released a statement: “This is a performative distraction from real policy changes. Bowser has consistently been on the wrong side of BLMDC history. This is to appease white liberals while ignoring our demands. Black Lives Matter means defund the police.”
