Whites Only Signs Apparently Placed By Black Lives Matter Protesters

St. Louis, MO – “Whites Only” signs were found posted up on St. Louis businesses Tuesday morning, but it wasn’t the owners who put the signs there; it was protesters.

Even more concerning is that minority-owned businesses were also targeted by the signs, and now the FBI is investigating.

They have a lead: all of the signs displayed a #BLM (Black Lives Matter) hashtag.

Qayum Mohammed owns Sameem, an Afghan restaurant that employs a diverse group of staff, according to KMOV.

“I’m proud to say I employ African American, Caucasian American, Malaysian,” Mohammed said.

Sameem was still targeted for the “Whites Only” sign, in addition to other restaurants in The Grove, including Urban Chestnut, Layla, and Taha’a Twisted Tiki Bar.

Burger restaurant Layla posted about the sign on its Facebook page:

To come into work only to find a sticker like this on our window is heartbreaking. We pride ourselves on being open, accepting and inviting of all types of people. We truly believe that our differences are what make us beautiful. This does not represent our restaurant, our team or our beliefs. #equalityforall #youcantstoptherevolution

Facebook users responded in confusion about why Black Lives Matter would make the sign when it “stands for everything they work against.”

Many people hold their own individual belief of what Black Lives Matter is. They think that their personal definition for Black Lives Matter is what the organized BLM groups stand for; this is not the case.

Black Lives Matter is made up of political organizations with political goals that most people would disagree with, including disrupting the “nuclear family” structure (see Black Villages), taxpayer-funded reparations for black people (see Reparations), and the elimination of charter schools (see Invest-Divest.) If you are unfamiliar with the Movement 4 Black Lives website we linked to, that’s the coalition of over 50 Black Lives Matter organizations which is receiving $100 million in donations to push their political goals.

Black Lives Matter groups have been pushing for racial segregation at colleges, at its meetings, and even at the St. Louis protests. They have also advocated for people only banking at black-owned banks and shopping at black-owned businesses.

So no, Black Lives Matter does not work against racial segregation; they promote it.

KMOV reports that the FBI is investigating the signs.
