People treated it as a trend so as soon as the protests stopped, word abt BLM also calmed down... some people still post and share things but it's much less than it used to be. It's a shame, you'd think racism and all would have stopped now, It. 2021 and people still haven't opened their eyes, only doing things coz other people are. Hope this makes sense.

It's cold outside and people are used to being cooped up indoors now.

They're still there, it's just stopped being "trendy".
AFAIK the full-scale civil unrest we saw in May and June is basically gone.

At the end of the day, you can say what happened to it all you like, no body has time to start actively protesting every single day to be honest. If there is institutionalised racism though, however, a prime example has been shown of what happens to as a result.

The bandwagon rolled out of town and all the people who follow what’s popular moved onto other things.

Of course black lives have mattered before, during and after the BLM protests but it’s not cool to go around talking about it anymore.

unfortunately, you can tell who was here for the long run

Some are still circulating information and resources, donating to charities actively trying to support communities affected by racism etc. Lots of people have also never been so enlightened, and really worked hard to improve their knowledge of black experiences and how institutional racism works etc. Though aspects of my life have personally resumed, I still make an effort to read books, articles, and follow black creators on social media to learn more. My degree is also fundamentally linked with race.

Of course, not everyone is the same, though you'd hope people are doing research too behind the scenes.

People got bored of supporting the racist group and woke to the racist behaviour and views of it. It went on for way too long, glad the bs is over with. It was also a fad which don't tend to last that long

A global pandemic occurred? That kind of makes it hard to organise protests and rallies unless you don't care about dying to coronavirus (as most Republicans in the US...).
