WATCH: Black Lives Matter protesters shut down two Walmart locations in Arkansas
WPXI ^ | July 5, 2020

SHERWOOD, Ark. — Protesters supporting the Black Lives Matter movement blocked the entrances and exits of two Arkansas Walmart locations Sunday afternoon, forcing the stores to close.

Dozens of demonstrators, chanting “Black lives matter,” “Defund the police” and “Defund Walmart,” marched in front of Walmart locations in Jacksonville and Sherwood, KARK reported.

A few protesters at each site carried signs that read, “Walmart is destroying public education,” among other messages.

The retail giant is based in Bentonville, Arkansas, but it was not immediately clear if proximity to the corporate headquarters had any bearing on Sunday’s protests.

According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, an employee at the Jacksonville location said the store was shut down due to the protests around 1:30 p.m., and the protesters moved about 10 minutes later to the Sherwood Supercenter. That store was then closed shortly before 3 p.m., after the remaining shoppers left, and protesters remained outside until about 3:15 p.m., when they headed south.

so....BLM has shut out many black people from their jobs.

and
since Walmart is famous for selling a lot of merchandise at very reasonable or cheap prices,
now black folks (and everyone else) will have to shop elsewhere and (most usually) pay a lot more for what they need.

Ain’t Burglary, Looting, and Mayhem a wonderful pro=black organization? /s

This makes me feel much better about the $180 I dropped at WM after church today, obtaining necessary food, medicines, pet and household supplies. If BLM is against a given business, there must be something good going on.

Gotta ask the question: where were the police? Shudda shown up with a paddy wagon, arrested everybody for obstructing a place of business, loaded them into the wagon and taken them to jail.

We have to intelligently shutdown these protests as soon as they start. Don’t give the BLM/Antifa idiots a chance to get started.

Guess all that pandering the CEO of Walmart did to BLM didn’t work. I’ve already started avoiding Walmart because of it, and the rioters don’t really care what side he’s on, because they’re going to be against his company anyway.

Yup. Corporations are yielding to extortion. Amazon “supports” BLM so as not having another warehouse torched.

"Walmart is destroying public education,"

It's about 40 years too late for that. It has been a commie institution for at least that long.

Why?

Walmart dropped all loves mater shirts and kept the black lives matter shirts.

You know theyre just cowards and enablers like everything else including politicians.

They all know its wrong and they do it anyways. They know its racist and hypocritical and they let it happen and keep their dam mouths shut anyway. Someone speaks a mild criticism and they fire them, anyways.

F#k them for their cowardice and their empowering of racist terrorists.

That should be the response at every demonstration, when they cross the line into violence. Round them all up, send them all to jail. We need Law & Order!

They were supposed to get scared and leave, so the "protesters" could do some "shopping" (looting).

Retailers are starting to wise up?

Weird. But, certainly their own education has suffered.

40 years? Try 60. Oh Heck, We might as well go back to 1913, the year the NEA was created.
