#factsonly RE: #BlackAustinMatters Mural - a thread:

1. The #BlackAustinMatters Mural was a collaboration between @CapitolViewArts and @AtxJustice. They city helped with the stencil and logistics. Dassit.
2. The black artists that were out there did NOT WORK FOR FREE. ALL and ONLY the Black artists are getting paid for their labor. Volunteers of other races and backgrounds were out there to help as well. #BlackAustinMatters
3. We also wanted to highlight and spotlight Black Artists thats why we invited them out. #BlackAustinMatters
4. This is meant to only make a statement and show people how racist Austin really is. Go read the comments from the news feeds. #BlackAustinMatters
5. Also, in the name of putting it in the face of the majority of Austin and the power structure we choose Congress. We don't need to tell the East Austin or any other part of the city where Black people are, Black Austin Matters... we already know that. (Or I hope so) #BAM
6. There is another mural coming on the East Side. Thursday. 6/18 Damn lol #BlackAustinMatters
7. Most importnaly... why #BlackAustinMatters instead of Black Lives Matter.

How can "Black Lives Matter" to Austin and the majority of people that live in Austin, if they don't even care about the Black people in the City? So until Black Austin Matters...
...The City, and the people in the city cant graduate to Black Lives Matter. #BlackAustinMatters #FactsOnly
