James Juanillo, surrounded by boxes of chalk and standing on the chalk outline of a large calendar drawn on the sidewalk beneath him June 9, is hanging around outside the large Victorian he shares with several friends.

Juanillo is throwing a chalk art protest, a notably more chill event than had occurred there before, two years ago to the day.Neighbors in the Pacific Heights neighborhood where Juanillo lives had been stopping by throughout the afternoon, helping him fill in the days of the calendar with chalk-drawn pictures of hearts, flowers, messages of love, and a reminder to passersby to vote in November.

The low-key protest was a commemoration of the day Juanillo had his first encounter with one of the more vexing trends sweeping the country.Juanillo, people may remember, attracted the ire of a neighborhood "Karen," that salty breed of concerned white citizen committed to interfering with the activities of people of color, no matter what they might be doing.

In Juanillo's case, it was writing — in chalk — "Black Lives Matter" on the low, black retaining wall along the sidewalk bordering the property of the house where he lives.
