- A man shared a photo of the letter his neighbour who does not like the BLM sign in front of his house wrote him
- The anonymous neighbour made sure the printed photo of the house is included for proper illustration
- Many tweeps were vexed by the attitude, saying the person was too cowardly not to have signed the letter
A young man with the Twitter handle @AjShehata has stirred massive reactions on social media around race as he shared a photo.
According to @AjShehata, a neighbour took a photo of his house, circled the Black Lives Matter (BLM) sign, printed it and wrote him an 'appealing letter'.
In the anonymous letter, the person said that having such a sign in front of his house is not proper behaviour, asking him to imagine if they all had signs to show their causes in the neighbourhood.
The letter went ahead to say that the horrible cases of black violence are carried out by blacks themselves. After that subtle hateful statement, the person praised the beautiful house.

Below are some of the reactions:
"That reeks of entitlement. Every last word of it."
"Britain’s form of racism hahahaha so subtle but also very loud."
"I say take the sign down but add a paint job to the roof."
"Wow. Just wow. I'm sorry your apparent neighbor su*ks so terribly."
"Didn’t have the guts to sign it. It’s place should be in the bin with the smarmy way it’s written."
"I assume they didn’t sign it? How very passive aggressive of them."
Meanwhile, Briefly News earlier reported that a mother in Russellville, Ark, Deval Brockman, said that her six-year-old daughter, Journei Brockman, was banned from daycare because she put on a shirt with the imprint “Black Lives Matter”.
Journei has been a student of His Kids Preschool for six months before the incident happened.
However, on Friday, June 26, 2020, she was told not to come back to school. Deval said that a school official called her on Thursday, June 29, 2020, that she did agree with the shirt, saying she should not wear such to school again.
