Mayor Apologizes for Not Being Clear Enough That Black Lives Matter


At tonight's virtual Monrovia City Council, Mayor Tom Adams said that "Black Lives Matter to me and the city of Monrovia. If haven't been loud enough or clear enough, I apologize."

The council also adopted a proclamation saying:

"Be it resolved: Black Lives Matter."

The proclamation condemns the killing of George Floyd, says that "now is the time for change," and "if we can't get it done now we never will." It adds that while there has been progress, "much more to be done against racial discrimination." In it the city also promised that it "will review police and public safety practice to reflect no tolerance for police brutality."

There were about 29 comments from the public - in the form of letters - mostly expressing concern about racism (several criticizing Adams on that count) and on what Monrovia should do about racism, such as:
  • Studying police policies (One called for "defunding" the police and another called for reducing the amount of money spent on police by 30%)
  • Requiring city employees to regularly attend anti-racism training.

Other letters encouraged the city to make strong efforts to create more affordable housing.

    1. For the person calling another "not to bright" let me help you out;
      The words are spelled like this; "you're, too, kneeling."

      Cut larger holes in your hood, you might see better that way.

  4. We know Tom favors white lives. This is why he should not be in office. He must care and help provide programs and safety for all monrovians and a huge part of that is to truly care and take action to show Black Lives Matter.

  6. BLM is a fraud, they are a marxist front organization and admit it.

    If black lives did matter, they would be in Chicago: 101 shot, 14 fatalities, the vast majority black. Where is BLM? Where is Schumer, Pelosi, Harris, Bernie, Nadler? Not a peep from any of them.
