    Trending these days: parodying the Black Lives Matter movement to shed light on whatever issue, unrelated to what the original phrase meant. Recently, the White Marlin Marina in Ocean City, MD came under fire for selling T-shirts reading “White Lives Matter” and “Blue Lives Matter,” with an image of a white or blue marlin, to raise awareness “in promotion of billfish conservation.”

    Now, a restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico is using the phrase to sell T-shirts about… olives. Eatery Paisano’s made headlines for adding the phrase “Black Olives Matter” to its signage as a way to promote, as KOAT 7 Albequerque says, “a tuna dish with black olive tapenade.” Paisano’s caught plenty of flack for the sign, as some people felt that the play on the phrase trivializes the important social and political issues of the Black Lives Matter movement.

    I believe the BLM people deserve a little ridicule for their recent behavior.

    How can that "trivialize" them any more? They're already a joke and a bunch of fucking idiots who make fools of themselves on a daily basis. The only people who take them seriously are Obama and Hillary, even more reason not to vote for her.
