A Houston Chapter of Black Lives Matter conducted a protest Sunday dubbed “Stand Up, Fight Back: Super Bowl LI Protest March” which targeted attendees to the Superbowl in Houston.
“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.”
