Black people are shooting theirselves in the foot by protesting during a pandemic?Watch
The virus is known to affect BAME people disproportionately, not in their favour. It is more likely you will die from the virus if you are BAME. Yet they are protesting BLM... It is irresponsible to do this now. Yes I understand the anger, it is totally warranted for sure. But defying lockdown is stupid. Don't complain where there are lots of people dying from the virus in hospitals in the next few weeks.
Literally everyone is at home. They best way to do it now is to plaster it over social media now then do a protest later, which would not only reignite the momentum, but not put so many lives at risk. There are still people dying in hospitals everyday. Everyone will most likely forget about it once we can all go out and run about our business, which will probably won't be anytime soon thanks to these people protesting. I'm not Black but I am South Asian, so I can relate to some racism aspects at the very very least that I've experienced. It's disgusting how black people have been treated, covertly and overtly, in society and the history of black people. I would've gone to the protests if we weren't in a pandemic. But defying lockdown, protesting (and rioting/looting in America) doesn't help with negative black stereotypes either.
