White House Responds To 'BLM Is Hate Group' Petition

Guess what they said.

So you won't believe this, but apparently there are over a hundred thousand people in America who want the government to call Black Lives Matter a "terrorist organization."

So the White House looked that petition over,

and said "um, no." Colorlines reports:

CBS News reports that the White House was forced to acknowledge the petition because it garnered more than 100,000 signatures. Not only did the response make it clear that fulfilling this request does not fall under the guidance of the White House, but it also pushed the signers to make change at the local level, saying, “The U.S. government does not generate a list of domestic terror organizations, and therefore we are not able to address the formal request of your petition. We encourage you to engage with your community in the ongoing discussion of how we can better build trust and safety in our communities.

And with the upgraded "lame duck, no fcks" anger translator?
