SF Viral Video About Black Lives Matter Stencil Unpacked

She 'Rode That Bias Off a Cliff': Man Who Filmed SF Viral Video on Handling 'Karens'
Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez for KQED (Link to article)

Jaime Juanillo was not looking to 'out' a white woman for making racist remarks last Thursday. In other words, he wasn’t looking to catch a 'Karen.'

(That’s a term often used to describe white women, specifically, who call police to punish Black people and people of color generally while they're enjoying everyday activities — like barbecuing, running a lemonade stand or bird-watching.)

But when a woman named Lisa Alexander and her husband accused Juanillo of a crime for stenciling the words Black Lives Matter with chalk on the retaining wall outside his own home in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights, he was ready with his cellphone.

“Respectfully,” Alexander can be seen telling Juanillo in his video, “absolutely your [Black Lives Matter] signs and everything, that’s good, but this is not the way to do it. It’s private property.”

Yes it was: Juanillo’s property. But, he maintains, being a man of color, Alexander likely assumed he did not live in the expensive home they were standing in front of. She called the police.

Juanillo said in the predominantly wealthy, predominantly white Pacific Heights neighborhood, “It’s not unusual at all for me to get a look like, ‘Do you belong here?’” Juanillo, a Filipino man, has lived with his husband in Pacific Heights for 18 years where he runs a small dog walking business called Pack Heights.

The video interaction Juanillo recorded with Alexander has since gone viral, and been viewed more than 13 million times. The beauty subscription service Birchbox has cut ties with Alexander’s skincare company LAFACE, and she has since issued a public apology, saying "I should have minded my own business."

Seitu Ken Jones Gives a How To on Making a George Floyd Stencil

StencilArchive.org has seen other shared stencils images of George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor, on the stencil subreddit. We were glad to come across Twin Cities artist Seitu Jones' #Blues4George project, since Jones includes templates and instructions for a simple or multi-color stencil portrait. Go to Jones' site for more details, and to download a pdf how-to via Google Drive.

#BLUES4GEORGE
How To Create Your Own #Blues4george:
Create your own stencils of any size with the 4 patterns provided. Pick up shades of blue paint and memorialize George Floyd in the streets and on the boarded up storefronts across the United States and beyond. Depending on size and paint supplies accessible to you, there are many ways to create a #blues4george portrait.

Materials You’ll Need:
Cardboard/Foamcore/Paper/

Something you can cut out!

Spray Paint/Acrylic/Chalk/Markers/

Something with the color blue!

OPTION 1: EASY
One shade of blue paint

1. Download the stencil from tiny.cc/b4gE

2. Print the stencil out or trace it on some spare cardboard

3. Cut along the lines and remove the hatched areas using a utility blade, Xacto knife, or scissor

4. Start painting!

OPTION 2: CHALLENGING
Five shades of blue paint

1. Download the 5 stencils from tiny.cc/b4gC

2. Print the stencils out or trace them on some spare cardboard

3. Cut along the lines and remove the hatched areas using a utility blade, Xacto knife, or scissor

4. Start painting Layer 1 with your lightest blue, making your way up to Layer 5 and up to your darkest blue!

SOME TIPS!
You can mix 5 shades of blue with just one jar of blue and one jar of white paint, and a brush you can scale your paintings up using a projector and a marker to trace onto some scrap cardboard, or print on a bigger paper. Shop local when possible!

REMEMBER!
Get permission from local businesses, organizations, and building owners to place a portrait on their boarded up windows. Get permission for sidewalks, walls, or other locations across your neighborhoods.

Take photos and share your results on social media. Be sure to tag it #blues4george and @seitukjones

SECTION 4 : FIRST AID MEASURES
4.1
DESCRIPTION OF FIRST-AID MEASURES:
Symptoms may occur after exposure, so that in case of direct exposure to the product, when in doubt, or when symptoms persist, seek medical attention. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Lifeguards should pay attention to self-protection and use the recommended protective equipment if there is a possibility of exposure. Wear protective gloves when administering first aid.

Inhalation:
Inhalation of solvent vapours may produce headache, dizziness, fatigue, muscular weakness, drowsiness and, in extreme cases, unconsciousness.
Remove the patient out of the contaminated area into the fresh air. If breathing is irregular or stops, administer artificial respiration. If the person is unconscious, place in appropriate recovery position. Keep the patient warm and at rest until medical attention arrives.

Skin:
Skin contact causes redness. Prolonged contact may cause skin dryness.
Remove immediately contaminated clothing. Wash thoroughly the affected area with plenty of cold or lukewarm water and neutral soap, or use a suitable skin cleanser. Do not use solvents or thinners.

Eyes:
Contact with the eyes produces redness and pain.
Remove contact lenses. Rinse eyes copiously by irrigation with plenty of clean, fresh water for at least 15 minutes, holding the eyelids apart, until the irritation is reduced. Call a physician immediately.

Ingestion:
If swallowed, may cause irritation of the throat, abdominal pain, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.
If swallowed, seek immediate medical attention. Do not induce vomiting. Keep the patient at rest.
