Sounds like your own congratulatory, privileged statement of 'I came to this with an open mind' is completely refuted by the rest of your rambling, incoherent response. There' s neither 'open' nor much of a 'mind' in any of what you wrote.

You missed the point. Conservatives, typically white ones but also white 'actors' (self-haters with a deep desire to marry, reproduce, and be white) deny that their internal motivation to shift attention from police brutality to a different issue altogether has to do with maintaining power and dominance. And that, as a result, the growing demographic of POC likely won't tolerate this sort of white privileging--at our expenses--for too much longer.

Of course, none of this would be an issue if white people could find the moral courage (both words with which they often seem to have little or no acquaintance) to admit that what comes to them often comes as a matter of privilege, not merit, and that those privileges belong with the POCs actually earning them.

Resources--ie, money--will have to move. None of this gaslighting is going to alter the end of the most toxic empire the human race has ever witnessed.
