From a Friend of McHenry County Blog:
The text reads, “Justice is blind, not silent. McHenry County BLACK LIVES MATTER. VOTE 11-03-2020.”
It’s next to Marian Central Catholic High School and says, “Paid for by A. Klouda, B. Lloyd, and Friends.

The following comment was posted by a reader today, so I am putting this post up again:
My family and I have lived and have absolutely loved McHenry county for the last 18 years.
We’re a Black, middle-class family of 6, where we’ve all been involved in our community in one facet or another, whether it’s travel football, participating and winning regional science fairs, fellowshiping at our house of worship or what have you!
To see this sign is a DIRECT INSULT to me and my Black family!
We take it personally.
How can anyone side with an organization that does not promote forgiveness and reconciliation?
How can anyone side with an organization that is determined to get rid of the nuclear family and the heterosexual male (FATHERS, which are heads of the nuclear family)?
What this sign/movement stands for is not our movement nor our mission as a Black family in the greatest country on the planet!
We love God, our family, our great country, and ALL PEOPLE!
And we will never subscribe to the BLM agenda!
To the leaders of McHenry County, THIS IS NOT OKAY!
You have a responsibility to represent your constituents.
THIS IS NOT MCHENRY COUNTY – FIX IT!
If you need me, a Black woman but an AMERICAN first, to help you by speaking out against this then I will do so GLADLY!!
To all my fellow McHenry county neighbors, it’s time to RISE UP!!!
