The “Black Lives Matter” movement has found a new platform, thanks to an art exhibit at the taxpayer-funded University of Texas at Arlington.
According to a report by Stephen Rowe at Hypeline, the art exhibit was on display in UTA’s University Center, and featured photos and artwork promoting the “Black Lives Matter” agenda, including a painting of a police officer pointing a gun at a young black man in a hoodie.
An article in the UT Arlington campus paper The Shorthorn made the intent of the exhibit clear. It quoted Nadajalah Bennett of student group Leaders Educating About Diversity, who hosted the exhibit, said “We thought it would be pretty nice to have a gallery where people can come and learn history and some of the recent cases that have been going on with the movement. It’s (Black Lives Matter) definitely not a hate group. It’s more of a movement that helps everyone come together and highlight the critical issues…when it comes to police brutality.”
Sophomore Quentin Knox also supported the exhibit. “Even if you’re not black, this movement is important because innocent people are dying,” he said.
