JUST IN: Mayor de Blasio explains how #BlackLivesMatter

mural went up, why other groups haven’t gotten murals:

“What I decided to do with the Black Lives Matter murals… transcends all normal realities because we are in a moment of history where this had to be said and done.”

Asked how he would handle applications for other murals, De Blasio answered:

“We haven’t said no to people. We have said, if you want to apply, you can apply, but there’s a process. Look, the fact is that what I decided to do with the Black Lives Matter murals, and this came out of a meeting…with community leaders and activists who said this would be such an important thing for this city to declare, officially, that is something that, again, transcends all normal realities. Because we are in a moment in history where this had to be said and done. That’s a decision I made. But the normal process continues for anyone who wants to apply.”
