Thanks, this is interesting to me as a town I lived in next to Boston for 8 years recently had a protest against its city hall hanging a “black lives matter’ banner over its door, even made some news outlets:
I am fascinated how American society struggles with nuanced arguments and the ability to see things beyond (pun intended) black and white. The city of Somerville has both a banner supporting the Baton Rouge and Dallas police men who were recently murdered AND a ‘black lives matter” banner. For some reason, we can not both support responsible policing AND police man who were killed in the line of duty by crazy people with guns. The mayor had a very nice Facebook post in response to all the hullabaloo.
there is still very much a segement of the population that believes you have to be for or against a ‘race’ of people.
