The response is not hostile, thinly veiled or unveiled. Honest, no hostility. I feel inclusive. I feel your pain, let’s all feel everyone’s pain.
The approach of let’s only talk about black issues, I see as a racial and ethnic discrimination discussion. A Muslim discrimination society says they are focused on Muslim problems , but will they talk about others? They will.
The Holocaust Society wants to redefine Holocaust to be only the one Jewish event. A discussion of the past, present and future genocide events in the world cannot be discussed in the same breath, under the same funding or otherwise.
I see a problem with this approach.
For ethnic issues, why can’t a person say,…and also?
This is the way Hitler divided society!!! First , take out the handicapped, the going around to religions one by one, to races, even finally to Catholics. Racism affects all our people, hurts everyone.
I’m not attacking BLM. Just like the world of women added to gymnasts complaints about assault, where metoo opened up women’s attacks to a bigger world of sexual assault. To me BLM is about racism and ethnic discrimination, for all. Maybe not for them.
