Don't you intellectual lightweights see the problem here?
A bunch of white people wanted to sit around discuss BLM and a bunch of white people here are sitting around discussing BLM (without much clarity of thought). I've discovered thats a losing cause. A BLM activist said something in a video a while ago that struck me. He said we dont need a bunch of white people discussing BLM or asking how they can be "allies" in fact, he cringed at the term. He said it would be a much better show of faith to act when you see injustice...not just sit around and talk about it. I can see his point as it does seem a little condescending to discuss BLM as an "enlightened" bunch of white people - which is why they weren't invited to the gathering.
Take off your racist red hats for a few and think about it.
