The election is long gone and over, and President Biden has (I guessed) cured racism. I guess this means Black Lives Matter has done their job and we can all walk out and cry to the heavens our love for them, right?
The one-year anniversary of the death of George Floyd occurs next week on May 25. Following the deaths of Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery last year, support for Black Lives Matter skyrocketed.
The so-called "newspaper of record" investigated the sudden and startling decline in support for Black Lives Matter, but did not make any mention of the riots that burned American cities for months, which often spawned from BLM protests.From NYT: 'Support for Black Lives Matter Surged Last Year. Did It Last?' The answer is no. 'The data...contradicts the idea that the country underwent a racial reckoning.' nytimes.com/2021/05/22/opi…
"Notably, support for the movement peaked in the immediate aftermath of George Floyd's death and then swiftly declined," the New York Times article read. The decline was so significant that "Republicans and white people have actually become less supportive of Black Lives Matter than they were before the death of George Floyd — a trend that seems unlikely to reverse anytime soon."
Hmm, guess committing acts of domestic terrorism across America isn’t really that popular.
