A Black Lives Matter chapter in Utah has declared the U.S. flag to be a “symbol of hatred” and says that anyone “flying it is a racist.”

In a Facebook post, the group wrote “When we Black Americans see this flag we know the person flying it is not safe to be around.”

It continues, “When we see this flag we know the person flying it is a racist. When we see this flag we know that the person flying it lives in a different America than we do. When we see this flag, we question your intelligence. We know to avoid you. It is a symbol of hatred.”

 

Responding to those who disagreed in the comments on the post about the U.S. flag, the group wrote  “Welcome racists. We know you are big mad about the racist flag post. You will not be heard here. You will be blocked and your comments will be deleted.”
