Walmart Canada is now catching flak for selling what the public is calling a racist T-shirt. The shirt in question is a military green “ALL LIVES MATTER” tee by Old Glory Design.
While this is not the first time questionable product has slipped through onto Walmart’s online store, many are outraged as the shirt remained for sale for over a week, there’s even an “All Lives Matter” American flag license plate photo still for sale. This news also comes just weeks after Walmart proposed a $100 million USD commitment towards racial equity.
It should also be noted that concurrently, Walmart does appear to have a section dedicated to the sale of Black Lives Matter products.
Appalled to learn that Walmart Canada’s on-line store is selling “All Lives Matter” t-shirts. This slogan was created by racists to oppose the legitimate demand that “Black Lives Matter.” By selling these t-shirts, Walmart is siding with racists.
