Man defends right to stencil Black Lives Matter on own property

A woman in a wealthy San Francisco neighborhood confronted a man for stenciling “Black Lives Matter” in chalk on his own property, reports ABC7 News.

The incident recorded on video has gone viral with KRON-TV reporting that more than 10 million people have seen it.

Twitter users have identified her as Lisa Alexander, CEO of LAFACE Skincare. Birchbox, a make up subscription service, confirmed that saying as a result of the CEO’s action, it has formally cut ties with the company.

Alexander assumed the chalk artist, James Juanillo, did not live at the property. In fact, he does.

“If I did live here, and this was my property, this would be absolutely fine? And you don’t know if I live here, if this is my property?” Juanillo can be heard asking on video.

Alexander has not responded to the media’s request for comment.

“I think its important that this not be just in the Castro, SOMA, that it be in the Marina, Laurel Heights, and Pacific Heights,” said Juanillo to NBC Bay Area. “When people who need to be woke can read it and see that its OK to have a statement like this in a neighborhood like this… Trust me, this neighborhood is in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.”

  1. RE: Man defends right to stencil Black Lives Matter on own property: One early evening my husband and I were walking back to our place on Divisadero and Jackson (Pacific Heights) where I lived for 15 years. We had just parked my mustang and we were walking along Jackson St. when a police car stopped and rolled down the window and asked why we were in the neighborhood. We simply answered “Because we live here. “ They drove away. The cop who asked (no doubt for his white cop partner who was the driver) was Chinese American. How embarrassing for him. This was in the early 1980s.
