Walmart pulls Black Lives Matter T-shirt from website after police complaints

Walmart has pulled a Black Lives Matter T-shirt from its online offerings amid complaints by police.

Walmart told Fox News Insider that it will no longer sell the shirts with the words “Bulletproof: Black Lives Matter” on its website.

The move came after the Fraternal Order of Police called the shirts offensive and asked the retailer to stop sales.

Walmart responded by providing a statement Tuesday to The Associated Press pledging to cease sales of the shirts.

The statement says the company has a marketplace with millions of items offered by third parties, including Blue Lives Matter, Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter merchandise.

It said Walmart removed the Black Lives Matter shirt after hearing concerns from customers.

The shirts were sold by Connecticut-based Old Glory Merchandise. A company representative was not immediately available for comment.

Did they pull the Blue Lives Matter and All Lives Matter t-shirts, as well? Otherwise Walmart does not have the right to arbitrarily discontinue stocking the shirts because of propaganda. People need to contact Walmart and boycott Walmart unless they restock the shirts. Either carry them all or discontinue carrying all of them

Ab Gai happy Kwanzaa my sister, but if they cannot exercise that power it is meaningless when they continue to be victims, 2017 is a few days a way it is a sad stage for negros to still have te same excuses, still living in the same slave ways mentally and physically, the world is moving so fast they are too busy killing each other, i dont care what any one says they are always quick to compare the black community with whites once you call out the crimes, look at this holiday weekend so much shooting in the black community than travel to other communities all they did was have fun no on died, and next weekend will be even worst the negros have plan to do some more killing this is their ways of celebrating i encourage more people with opportunity to move out these neighborhoods, invest their money to be stable if not rich, because this next year will be a painful year in the black community, and every dumb s*** they will do will back up with excuses as sad as it may be i am through feeling sorry for negros i have my own success to ficus on i cannot waste my time in people who refuse to move forward there is no excuses at all, it aint poverty because any one can do what ever they want, it aint opportunity with so many programs available, it is so easy to succeed these days you can put together your ideas make up a plan and a proposal you can approach any one big corporation once they like your ideas they will invest in you, they have program for people who comes out of jail to open their own businesses the world is willing to take a chance on us, but we just walk the other way and ignore it all while other people is just ripping it off

Please teach the kids because they know not what they don't know.
Happy kwanzaa to you as well.
But I do need to make one correction. Black folks in this DO have power, the problem is that the black folks don't know the power they have.

The festival of lights was created 50 years ago, 1966 after the watts riots the darkest time in LA, 50 years later many negros still dont know about Kwanzaa and do not celebrate Kwanzaa, on this first day of the celebration in 2016 allow me to say Happy Kwanzaa to the strong brothers and sisters, and to those who dont know, you need to find your self, find your history, because a man without history is a poor man and mentally living in slavery.

just to show you the negros in America do not hold any power and they still cannot recognize that, as long you are divided you will be weak in the eyes of every one, any white group can put their products online they can sell it, but this tshirt is to raise awarness of innocent black people being murdered by cops corporate America do not care and guess who is making them rich? negros
