DC Mayor Muriel Bowser had a street in the city painted with the slogan "Black Lives Matter" in huge yellow letters, and it's staggering to behold:

Mayor Bowser also renamed a plaza near the White House the "Black Lives Matter Plaza."

But DC's local Black Lives Matter group has derided the street mural as "performative," and with good reason: for all her symbolic support of the BLM movement, Mayor Bowser is also currently proposing to increase police budget by $19 million.

Mayor Bowser might want to consider putting her money where her mural is.
