LUBBOCK, TEXAS/19 AUG 20/ Lubbock-Cooper ISD denies removal of BLM or #blacklivesmatter parking spots.
SIGACT: Senior students had a “Trump 2020” mural painted in a section of the parking lot. Vandals painted various “lives matter” messages over the original. The school district instructed a student to paint over the profanity, not the BLM messages. The individual student opted to paint over the entire message.
RECOMMENDATION: Suburban residents should be prepared to increase expenditure on materials for local advocacy initatives as vandals have moved from city-center locations to schools and suburbs without regard to legal status or agreements.
