and activists are suing the mayor of

Washington DC for ordering the words

black lives matter to be painted on a

city street the lawsuit alleges mayor

Bowser violated the First Amendment by

showing preference to one belief over

another Bowser told reporters last week

that the word sent a message to the

American people that black humanity

matters a group is suing DC Mayor Muriel

Bowser for allegedly violating the First

Amendment they claim having black lives

matter painted on a city street shows

preference to one belief over another

the First Amendment prohibits government

action that favors one religion over

another the plaintiffs argue the mayor

used taxpayer money to promote one faith

or belief over another the complaint

comes about a week after she ordered

city workers to paint the words in large

yellow letters near the White House and

renamed that section of the street black

lives matter plaza the lawsuits

plaintiffs are a pastor a former

military judge in a DC lobbyist the

plaintiffs have asked the court to order

the mayor to display other banners on

the street such as blue lives matter in

all lives matter

they say that way she would not be

showing favoritism to a particular group

Bowser said that like all of the city's

public art the banner stays we think

it's going to have a central place not

in just DC history but in American

history and we should be proud of it

the lawsuit alleges the banner conveys

the message that blacks are the city's

favorite race they argue this itself is

a racist position the mayor's office did

not immediately respond to a request for
