As reported in an exclusive Human Events News piece Monday, all U.S. “Diplomatic and Consular posts” are being encouraged to display support for Black Lives Matter on Tuesday, May 25, the one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s death. 

The memo reads, in part, “The Department supports the use of the term ‘Black Lives Matter’ in messaging content, speeches, and other diplomatic engagements with foreign audiences to advance racial equity and access to justice on May 25 and beyond (italics added). We encourage posts to focus on the need to eliminate systemic racism and its continued impact.” 

It didn’t take long for the fire to spread, as the U.S. embassy in Spain is now flying a Black Lives Matter flag loud and proud. 

With the memo circulating around the State Department, it will be interesting to see the impact it has on U.S. embassies around the world. Human Events News will provide updates on who decides to jump on the bandwagon.
