Walmart Has Signed Up To Sell Black Lives Matter Apparel

The retail giant Walmart jumped on the Black Lives Matter train and has begun selling their branded apparel and other related items.  The items range from ball caps, t-shirts and hoodies, to check planners.


On the heels of a tumultuous 2016 for the mega store, Walmart has made their agenda quite clear to its consumers.  They have made no attempt to explain, excuse or rescind their partnership with the group that many would label as a terrorist organization.  Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson, Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and Sheriff David Clarke have all blasted Black Lives Matter for their obviously terrorist like behavior.  Members of Black Lives Matter are even facing lawsuits for their hateful rhetoric, which many believe has incited violence against law enforcement.  Now Walmart and other large companies such as Kelloggs are coming to the aid of Black Lives Matter.

Walmart is no stranger to controversy.  In September a Georgia outlet in McDonough refused to bake a cake saying “Blue Lives Matter.”  The baker  claimed the saying was racist and refused to make it.  Walmart also joined other major retailers in banning sales of all items with the Confederate flag after the shooting death of 9 members of Mother Emmanuel AME church in Charleston, South Carolina on June 17th, 2015.  Pictures of the shooter surfaced after the tragedy with a Confederate Flag.  Many retailers quickly moved to remove all items that displayed the flag, including Walmart.  “We never want to offend anyone with the products that we offer.  We have taken steps to remove all items promoting the Confederate flag from our assortment-whether in our stores or on our web site,” they said.  Walmart also pulled an “All Lives Matter” bumper sticker from their inventory after they stated it to be offensive.

Walmart has now stocked it’s shelves with Black Lives Matter gear.  One shirt displays the phrase, “Bulletproof  Black Lives Matter.”  Others say “Black Lives Matter” with a fist in the air.  The retailer even sells a “Black Lives Matter” planner with a description that reads, “Declare your support for the pivotal Black Lives Matter movement and stay organized with this handy two-year 2016-2017 Checkbook Planner!”  To have such obvious support for a group that has declared death to cops, is appalling.  Although Walmart also sells Thin Blue Line apparel and shirts that read “Blue Lives Matter,” it seems they are no respecter of persons when it comes to profit.  Even if it means selling swag representing a group that promotes the killing of cops.
