DC Mayor renames street near White House after Black Lives Matter

Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has changed the name of a street in front of the White House to ’Black Lives Matter Plaza’ in support of the protests across the US. BlackLivesMatter DC, however, was not impressed by the act and called it a ’performative distraction from real policy changes.’The activist group demanded reduction in funding for the DC police and more investment in the community.
