    Buffalo Common Council votes to rename Fillmore Avenue 'Black Lives Matter Way'


    BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) On Tuesday afternoon, the Buffalo Common Council voted to rename Fillmore Avenue "Black Lives Matter Way."

    The renaming was first proposed by Buffalo Common Council President Darius Pridgen back in June. Pridgen sponsored the resolution after receiving a letter from a 17-year-old Frederick Law Olmsted School student suggesting young people in Buffalo paint "Black Lives Matter" on a street. Mekhi Edwards wrote to Pridgen following protests at the end of May in Buffalo and across the country in response to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

    Why name a devastated street in a blighted neighbor hood "Black Lives Matter Way" ? Is this area a source of pride or prosperity for our neighbors of color.

    I would take it as a insult !
    #Dems play musical chairs + patronage and nepotism = entitlement !

    Does the city support racism by doing this? BLM is about hate.
