You talking 'bout me?
If so, fooled by what?
I was skeptical circa Ferguson (because of Mike Brown specifically
), and by 2020 most rioters took pains to distance themselves from "BLM" specifically, which had been co-opted and turned into a cynical brand (the early 2020 MN rioters preferred new slogans like "no justice, no peace," as well as emphasizing cross-racial unity against the MN police) with a bunch of cynical media representatives devoted to de-escalation and idpol. There've been corporate types co-opting and attempting to direct this stuff for years, this is not something specific to the last 10 years of anti-cop protest, but rather something capitalists attempt to do every time
there's some sort of unrest or movement within capitalism.
Now the MSM won't tell you this stuff, they're happy to oversimplify it, to say it's all fans of Talcum X, to accuse white anti-cop rioters of "appropriation," to try and split the participants, to not give you the whole picture. If you buy what they sell you, then ok - but I wasn't getting my info from CNN in 2020.
