Couple Charged With Hate Crime for Painting Over BLM Street Mural


On Tuesday, California officials charged a couple with a hate crime for painting over a Black Lives Matter mural that was painted on a public street.

“On July 1, a local Martinez resident applied for a permit to paint a Black Lives Matter temporary mural in downtown Martinez in front of the Wakefield Taylor Courthouse,” the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s office said in a statement. “The permit was approved by the City of Martinez and the painting was done on July 4.”

The Contra County District Attorney’s office charged Nichole Anderson, 42, and David Nelson, 53, with multiple charges and a hate crime for the incident.

The report says Anderson painted over the yellow Black Lives Matter slogan with black paint and Nelson helped.

The District Attorney, Diana Becton said:

We must address the root and byproduct of systemic racism in our country. The Black Lives Matter movement is an important civil rights cause that deserves all of our attention. The mural completed last weekend was a peaceful and powerful way to communicate the importance of Black lives in Contra Costa County and the country. We must continue to elevate discussions and actually listen to one another in an effort to heal our community and country.

We've gotten to the point where painting over a 'street mural', whatever that means, is a hate crime but hunting down and assaulting elderly white folks because of their race is not considered a hate crime.

The video has gone viral and, as you can expect, is drawing quite a level of controversy.

  1. Nicole Anderson am David Nelson , They should be charged with a hate crime . Looking at this tape shows the hate of these two people. If they don’t agree with the saying , they had no right to deface it . David is shouting “ make America great again “ !!! What does he mean by that ? This tape shows exactly why “ black lives matter “ Because of people like him , this couple is a perfect outward example . Lastly Nicole shouts “ it’s ok in NY but NOT in her TOWN ???, HER TOWN !! I’m thanking GOD for cell phone footage . Please keep us posted with their sentence from the court system .

    1. YOU are taking this way out of context Yvonne. Nobody said she was racist against black people. She’s saying that she doesn’t want this painted on the town where SHE pays taxes. Maybe she’s offended, as many white people are, that it only states that BLACK lives matter, when, in fact, ALL lives matter and THAT’S what should’ve been painted. Nobody is saying or ever did say that Black people’s lives doesn’t matter. But when you hear people like Nick Cannon saying dumb stuff as he has been quoted as saying, now THAT is race hate against white people and there’s NO excuse for that.

    2. Ironic that NO one defacing MAGA or other conservative messages is EVER charged. Or statues from whatever misguided rage brought them down…oh wait…thank God THAT may be changing! It is mostly a one way street and racism does not fix racism. This reverse hate message (just look at their public comments and website) should never have been painted to begin with.

  2. That is so wrong! Black Lives Matter isn’t a civil rights organization. It’s a politically driven Marxist organization to overthrow our government. More aptly, a terrorist organization. A Federal hate crime? That’s laughable. A charge more fitting, if any, would be similar to painting graffitti.

  3. Painting BLM was, in itself, a protest. Painting over BLM is likewise a protest. Charges of hate crime – hypocrisy so ludicrous that few places other than California could be so off base. Likewise, declaring BLM a serious civil rights movement displays an out-of-touch, unrealistic delirium!

  4. So opposing Marxist hate groups is now a crime? I hope the DA is aggressively pursuing those that rioted and destroyed businesses, assaulted innocent people, and chanted death to white people, etc.

  5. As far as I’m concerned that Black Lives Matter painted on that street is the most racist statement there can be. This is basically saying that black lives matter and no other color matters. If the country REALLY wanted to changed racism in America, they should’ve painted ALL LIVES MATTER on the street. I’m offended as a Caucasian, that obviously MY life doesn’t matter.

  6. They never said they hated anyone, that’s YOUR interpretation. It’s racist that only black lives matter was painted on that street.

    1. You are a glaring example of what is wrong with this country! Living breathing PISTER CHILD OF IGNORANCE IS BLISS!!!!

  7. I hope they have a good lawyer, I don’t agree with their painting over it, however, I don’t agree with it being painted there to begin with. Since when does a town give permission to someone to paint a “mural” down the middle of a street that everyone pays for. What happens when weather and time start to destroy the paint, do the taxpayers get saddled with paying for it to be re-painted. Logic needs to start entering into some of this!!!!!!

  8. Fuck D.A. Becton.
    These black lives matter assholes are nothing but a bunch of fucking leaches on society.
    How do they expect me to recognize BLM when they’re slaughtering each other by the hundreds EVERY NIGHT.
    They don’t give two shits about black lives they’re just trying and succeeding at pushing their own RACIST AGENDAS .
    They’re quickly turning the U.S. into a third world country.
    If I thought they actually gave a fuck about anyone but themselves I might be sympathetic to their cause.
    I wish they would get off their blood sucking asses, go to work pay taxes and actually contribute something to society.
    I’m sure Nichole and David feel the same way I do. They probably sick of having this horse shit crammed down their throats.
    When blacks start doing something about blacks killing each other they may get some respect. Till then they can go fuck themselves

  10. What the hell is the matter with this some of us don’t agree with the shit that black lives matter crap these people are terrorists as far as I am concerned

  11. Ethnicity disparagement is not limited to non-whites. I am sick of this BS being levied against whites only. Perhaps we should form our own WLM movement! Just because we whites vocally oppose the non-white rabble destroying public and private property, destroying/defacing our monuments having been in place for many years then why is it a “hate crime” because we speak out in opposition? It is the blacks restoring racial unrest now.

  12. BLM and ANTIFA are domestic terrorist organizations funded by the larger domestic terrorist organization known as the Democratic party who are hell bent on destroying this country.

  13. If Black lives truly mattered the Black Lives Matter movement would be engaging the Black on Black violence being unleashed in Chicago, New York and elsewhere. They don’t challenge this violence because they’re afraid of being gunned down themselves ! This current movement provokes violence and supports civil unrest wherever they gather and march. The movement in theory does have meaning and significance but with its current leadership the movement is divisive and supportive of hate. Those who don’t agree with the movement, or have their own opinions other than what’s being shoved down everyone’s throats are shouted down by BLM and not allowed to speak their minds. This is pathetic ! Many of the politicians join in with the movement because is has momentum and popularity, but the undercurrents are sinister. We have way too many weak leaders! If anything, Nicole Anderson and David Nelson should be thanked for standing up to this divisive racist movement and ugly street art. I do understand a permit was granted for the BLM street painting, but the painting over of this yellow Marxist label should be an infraction if anything, not a criminal charge.

  14. The liberal Democrat politicians have always sympathized with the violent haters that have caused billions of dollars of damage to our infrastructure, they have caused millions in lost productivity and have used terror to intimidate innocent elderly. Woman, and children. Martin Luther King is turning in his grave as these Democrats promote and reward lawlessness. No where in the world or in history has this ever worked. The Democrats have police blood on their hands. Serious problems demand serious solutions. The Democrats have picked a fight with innocent citizens in this country. They took kindness for weakness, a serious criminal miscalculation. There is no free lunch!

  15. Graffiti is not Ok. These citizens have a right to clean streets free of this sort of messaging on public property. A self proclaimed “…trained Marxist” group. BLM, should be fined and required to clean up the street themselves. They are the “hate” criminal. They hate black lives in the womb, black lives killed by other black lives. When they change their own racism, change their hate for our American way of life, then they have a point to their big yellow graffiti but still not the right to mess up the street.

  16. BUT is it a hate crime when they are defacing monuments and tearing them down and destroying property? OH WAIT THAT is a protest…… Maybe this couple is protesting the BLM movement which is their right to do so

  17. THIS IS A RACIST MURAL–THE ONLY CORRECT MURAL SHOULD SAY “ALL LIVES MATTER.” WHO IS
    GOING TO MAINTAIN THIS SIGN? IS IT ONLY BLACK TAX PAYERS? IT SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN
    APPROVED WITHOUT A VOTE BY THE TAXPAYERS IN MARTINEZ!

  18. I believe that all lives matter not only black lives. This couple is being charged for a hate crime. It is ridiculous. Get real. I see it as a protest. The crime is defacing a legal sign. When has a black person been arrested for a hate crime against a white person. Unless there is violence there shouldn’t be. There was nothing promoting any violence against anyone. This is a free country. I am not a racist or prejudiced, but I support the right of others to be so.
