It shows the two officers standing next to each other while holding out their hands. On each of their palms is a message that reads, “His life matters,” with an arrow pointing to the other officer.”
American Conservatives of Color posted the photo to its Facebook page on Monday with a caption that read “Right on, brothers!!” The post has received more than 19,000 “likes” and has been shared more than 96,000 times.
