    Every individual deserves respect: Walmart Stop Selling “All Lives Matter” Merchandise

    Walmart is never longer selling “All Lives Matter” merchandise on its website. T-shirts that featured variations of the “Black Lives Matter” slogan, including “All Lives Matter, “Blue Lives Matter,” “Irish Lives Matter,” and “Homeless Lives Matter” will be no longer.

    Walmart Moves after backlash

    Social media users have been criticizing Walmart for allowing third-party vendors to sell shirts on its online store. Retailer received backlash for t-shirts that featured variations of the “black lives matter” slogan, including “all lives matter,” “blue lives matter,” “Irish lives matter” and “homeless lives matter.”

    Amid, the COVID-19 pandemic, Walmart also doubled the ‘bonus amount’ for its employees, proving themselves to be employee friendly.

    America’s largest retailer move is the latest in a series of actions taken by companies, entertainers, sports leagues and lawmakers as the nation grapples with systemic racism in the wake of the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and other African American men and women killed by police.

    Walmart Statement

    The company said it would start emphasizing Black people and other people of color whose lives are being “impacted by ongoing racial injustice.” According to Walmart, the shirts were being sold by third-party sellers on its website.

    “We fundamentally believe all lives do matter and every individual deserves respect,” Walmart said in a statement. “However, as we listened, we came to understand that the way some, but not all, people are using the phrase ‘All Lives Matter’ in the current environment intentionally minimized the focus on the painful reality of racial inequity.”

    The nation’s largest retailer is removing the items which are sold by third-party sellers after hearing concerns from some employees and customers.
