Two American patriots took to the streets in Martinez, California and began to paint over the yellow Black Lives Matter mural with black paint. The mural was painted Saturday in front of the court house.
Many mural like this one have been painted around the country following the death and unrest of George Floyd.
According to a statement released by the Chief of Police for the Martinez police Department Manjit Sappal, “On July 4th, community members obtained a permit from the City to paint Black Lives Matter on Court Street in downtown Martinez.” After the completion of the mural, Sappal explained “an unidentified white male and white female arrived. While the male made comments to a group of onlookers his companion began painting over the mural with black paint. At one point she made a statement that this was not, “…happening in my town”.”

Ironically this seems to be an instance of karma in a sense. Over the past month hundreds of statues and murals representing America and our history have been destroyed in the name of racism and under the banner of the Black Lives Matter organization.
Chief Sappal also pointed out in the statement, “The community spent a considerable amount of time painting this mural only to have the suspects destroy it by dumping and rolling paint over part of the message. The incident was captured on video and posted on YouTube.”
According to the failing New York Times, “The man, who can be seen in a video wearing a red cap and a red shirt that reads “Trump” and “Four More Years,” can be heard saying: “We’re sick of this narrative” and “The narrative of police brutality, the narrative of oppression, the narrative of racism. It’s a lie. It’s a lie.”
The man and female suspects are still at large and the city of Martinez. The statement closed with “The community spent a considerable amount of time putting the mural together only to have it painted over in a hateful and senseless manner. The City of Martinez values tolerance and the damage to the mural was divisive and hurtful. Please help us identify those that are responsible for this crime, so they can be held accountable for their actions”
