The way I see it, Black Lives Matter started out well-intentioned but has since become as corrupt and violent as the newsworthy police officers they oppose. According to George Floyd's brother Terrence, who's suffering the most from losing George, this level of violence that's giving people in LA another reason not to leave their houses—my brother included—is not something the late George would've wanted or supported. In his words, "Y'all doing nothing because that's not going to bring my brother back at all."
Yes, I believe that black lives matter. Think of the rich scientific, political, religious, artistic, musical, and literary contributions the black community has made for the benefit of the great nation that is the United States! But how many other lives have to be taken regardless of skin color before it's universally accepted that black lives matter? There is a better way than violent wars or verbal wars. I know it!
Speaking of which, I'm not a black person, but I know what it's like to be discriminated against. I once had a Hispanic teacher in my 2-year college days who gave lower grades to black, white, and Asian students all alike while championing Hispanic students. She even admitted to racism against whites when she said she was astounded that one of my high-scoring assignments came from a white person, implying that she thought of anyone not belonging to La Raza as intellectually inferior. Long story short, she doesn't work at my 2-year college anymore, and I didn't have to organize a violent protest to get her fired. Still, because of this experience, I can empathize with people of other races who've been judged based on skin color. Yes, being given lower grades based on race is not as severe as being arrested and killed based on race, but discrimination is discrimination no matter the level of severity or who the victim race is. And senseless violence is not the key to ending it. In my case, all I had to do was testify anonymously.
Unfortunately but unsurprisingly, a lot of left-wing corporations like the ever-woke Disney are in favor of the awful violence and destruction instead of supporting peaceful conflict resolution and use of words, not weapons, as means of stripping racism of its power.
