“the acronym for the Black Lives Matter movement”
Leaders at the school claim this decision is not a political one. Right.

U. Memphis football team to wear ‘BLM’ helmet decals
Memphis University Tigers football head coach Ryan Silverfield announced in a Tuesday tweet that his team will wear “BLM” stickers this season.
“This season, for every game, our student-athletes’ helmets will have a BLM sticker. #ALLINagainstRACIALINJUSTICE,” Silverfield said.
The new decal will feature BLM, the acronym for the Black Lives Matter movement, with the school’s “M” tiger logo replacing the acronym’s M.
Silverfield had tweeted this logo a few weeks earlier…
Despite Black Lives Matter’s support of leftist-backed causes, such as defunding the police, Silverfield says he does not intend to take a political stance by using the phrase “Black Lives Matter.”
