The sign above appeared at the Black Lives Matter rally in Forest Hills, Queens on Saturday.


“Let the Church proclaim to all that the sin of racism defiles the image of God and degrades the sacred dignity of humankind which has been revealed by the mystery of the Incarnation. Let all know that it is a terrible sin that mocks the cross of Christ and ridicules the Incarnation. For the brother and sister of our Brother Jesus Christ are brother and sister to us.”

Brothers and Sisters to Us, U.S. Catholic Bishops, 1979.
