The words “BLACK LIVES MATTER” painted on the street in bright yellow letters outside of the White House are no more:
The words 'Black Lives Matter' have been paved over on DC's 16th St north of the White House
Mayor Bowser painted the words in a jab at then-President Trump, successfully changing the topic when protesters were criticizing her pic.twitter.com/iIWUCFRRSX

Isn’t this a hate crime?
Is this a hate crime? Will pavers go to Gitmo?

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser did announce that Black Lives Matter Plaza “will become a permanent art installation” of some sort:
Black Lives Matter Plaza will become a permanent art installation. D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser made the announcement about the future of the now-iconic downtown street in front of the White House. https://t.co/2MsMiICzQu

But she didn’t release any details on just what it will look like:
The Bowser administration would not provide any specifics on what improvements or changes would be made or on a timeline for the work.
For something Bowser made such a big deal about, now there are no details about its future?
Black Lives Matter Plaza is a place for healing and strategizing, protest and redress.

And now, apparently, it’s about creating some sort of new tourist attraction:
And as before, #BlackLivesMatter will be tucked away until politicians have a further use for it in the future, proving it's not really about black lives, it's about using black lives as a tool to obtain power. https://t.co/mTSu4Q1xHY
