From the Pages of Orlando Weekly: Black Lives Matter Mural Graffiti Raised Valid Points

They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Few would claim that city leaders had anything but the best intentions in mind when they painted the words “Black Lives Matter” in letters 30 feet high on the surface of Rosalind Avenue. But many Orlando residents, Black and white alike, question the utility of the mural. Last Friday Orlando volunteers finished painting the 400-foot-long statement in Pan-African colors.

It would be easy to ignore next Tuesday’s municipal election, and just focus on the already heating up 2020 presidential election. But it would be shortsighted. Mayor Buddy Dyer, who’s been the head honcho at City Hall since 2003, is running for his fifth term in office. Having a familiar face as Orlando mayor is nothing new; the last time the city had a one-term boss was in the ’50s. But this time around, Dyer faces a pair of very motivated challengers.
