And by doing so, you are trying to create equivalency - "cant blame the Republicans for storming the Capitol because you didnt blame the Democrats for the BLM protests last year!"
Thats. The. Problem.
There is no equivalency between the two things - there is no concept of it being incorrect to talk about the events last week in complete and total isolation, we do not need to bring the BLM protests into this at all. If you insist we have to, then all you are trying to do is change the narrative and somehow seek to make last weeks events better. Which makes you part of the problem, not the solution.
BLM protests were people seeking to be seen as people. To not be killed indiscriminately by militarised police forces with unqualified immunity. To not be treated as second class by white people. To not have worse outcomes in healthcare and education (hell, at least one of the Covid-19 vaccines has a 30x lower success rate in black people, and literally no one cared - its one of the main ones being issued in the US right now...). To not be gerrymandered into a situation where their vote counts less in many elections.
Last weeks events were members of one side trying to overthrow the legitimate outcome of a national election.
If you can't see the difference, then you are the problem.
Then what is the BLM movement actually trying to change? Poloce aside, how can something like worse outcomes in healthcare and education be improved through decision of someone except god?
