White House Building Gets A Black Paint Job To Mark One-year Anniversary Of George Floyd’s Death
Since 1800 the public has been calling it “White House”. The building was painted white to cover the scorch marks left after it was set on fire during the 1812 war.
Now, under the Biden administration, the building is getting painted black to symbolize the suffering of George Floyd. This decision was made after a close collaboration between Black Lives Matter foundation and the current administration.
The White House states the building’s new makeover is the most hysterical step towards addressing the systemic racism in the country.
