Black Lives Matter is apparently looking to stir up some trouble in the super bowl this year. They have plans to block the arrival of attendees.
Black Lives Matter organizers are planning a protest dubbed “Stand Up, Fight Back: Super Bowl LI Protest March.”
“It is time for the city government of Houston to see how diverse we are,” organizers posted on Facebook. “The grand claim was made that we are a ‘welcoming city,’ but the treatment of the local homeless community, gentrification, lack clarity on where our elected leaders stand on Trump’s policies and of course the issue of anti Blackness need to be addressed.”
“WE WILL MARCH UP FANNIN FROM HERMANN PARK TO NRG PARK. RAIN OR SHINE,” organizers wrote.
The march is scheduled to coincide with the arrival of attendees to the Super Bowl. Attendees have been encouraged to use public transportation. Some of the seating capacity of these buses and trains could be taken up by protesters in an attempt to slow down the attendees’ arrival to the NRG Stadium. The protest is expected to end before game time.
BLM thrives off of this sort of public stunt. The NFL and local police shouldn’t put up with it. However, knowing how liberal ESPN and the NFL have become, it wouldn’t surprise to see them allow such a protest from the hate group.
