It didn’t take the White House long to respond to a July 6 petitionasking the Obama administration to “formally recognize Black Lives Matter as a terrorist organization.
“The White House plays no role in designating domestic terror organizations,” said last week’s response to the 141,444 signers of the online petition.
“The U.S. government does not generate a list of domestic terror organizations, and therefore we are not able to address the formal request of your petition. We encourage you to engage with your community in the ongoing discussion of how we can better build trust and safety in our communities.
“Thank you for your participation in the We the People platform. We’ll be back in touch soon,” said the response signed by “The We the People Team.”
