The Olympics Just Dealt BLM a Massive Blow

According to new rules published by the International Olympic Committee, competitors will not be able to wear “Black Lives Matter” clothing during ceremonies at the forthcoming Tokyo Olympic Games (IOC).

Last month, the IOC announced new regulatory reforms, including the prohibition of political protests on the playing field. According to TMZ Sports, IOC officials have since stated that the rules prohibit the use of Black Lives Matter imagery, logos, clothing, slogans, or advocacy.

Partisan activism and sloganeering would also be prohibited during official ceremonies and on the winner’s podium.
