Wal-Mart Makes Decision On Black Lives Matter Merchandise

After a contentious battle with Wal-Mart regarding “Black Lives Matter” items offered by Old Glory Merchandise via the mega retailer, they have decided to remove a controversial item from their website.

On Tuesday the company announced its decision to remove the items that have “Bulletproof” on them after they received a letter from the president of the national Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), asking them to stop selling the clothing.

The FOP is the largest police organization in the country.

While Wal-Mart has agreed to remove the particular item, it has decided to continue to sell the “Black Lives Matter” clothing line, despite a demand to remove the line was made by the FOP President, Chuck Canterbury, in his letter sent to the retailer.

I am not a fan of BLM but I am a huge fan of free speech. The left continues to attack the 1st and 2nd amendment. If they love socialism so much just move to North Korea.

I agree with free speech, but the law did not force them to pull the item. They made a business decision and that is how it is supposed to work.

How many times per DAY do these Walmarts call for police assistance?

Bottom line is they probably weren't selling very many. If it was a good selling item they would still be on the shelves.
