Thousands upon thousands of people have been taking to the streets in protest...

Many protests turned violent...

It has also taken over our streets...

Protests have been happening across the pond too...

Black Lives Matter murals have been popping up across the globe.
via: Getty ImagesAnd now, reports say that New York City has decided to paint their own.
The huge mural is said to be being painted on the lucrative Fifth Avenue.
via: Getty ImagesBut, while work is being done on the painting, Millionaire's Row, where Donald Trump's eponymous building is situated, was closed off to traffic.
The closure happened between 56th and 57th Street at 7 am on Thursday.
via: Getty ImagesA Department of Transportation spokesperson told PIX 11 that the block would be blocked to cars until Sunday, when traffic would be free to drive through the painting.
Buses will be back operating sooner than that, however.

The President slammed plans for an "antagonizing" BLM mural outside Trump Tower on Wednesday.His Twitter rant came after the Mayor's intention to defund the NYPD's $6 billion budget was announced. "And yet the @NYCMayor is going to paint a big, expensive, yellow Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue, denigrating this luxury Avenue," the President said. "This will further antagonize New York’s Finest, who LOVE New York & vividly remember the horrible BLM chant, 'Pigs In A Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon.'"
De Blasio clapped back to the President a few hours later.

And now one YouTube has created a protest symbol of a different kind.
via: YouTubeYouTuber, Rob Bliss took to the streets of Harrison, Arkansas.
He called it the most racist town in America.
via: YouTubeAnd watching his video, we might have to agree.
He held up his "Black Lives Matter" sign and watched the hate roll in.
via: YouTubeSome of the responses were just horrific.
There was no positive reception here.
via: YouTubeAnd the video really makes a case for the continuation of the Black Lives Matter movement.
