> Black Lives Matter is a racist, Marxist group.

President Trump agrees:

(he specifically says BLM is Marxist and discriminatory)

Consistent with opposing BLM, President Trump has banned federal agencies from doing training programs that refer to “critical race theory” or “white privilege”

BLM & race relations

I think the combination of BLM and "cancel culture" has worsened race relations In the U.S.A.

For instance, say my neighbor is doing something I don't like, like periodically setting firecrackers off at midnight. If I'm white, then I'd rather he be white as well, because then at least there'd be less risk of me losing my job if I talk to him about it than if he were black. If he's black, I'd be afraid that our interaction would be filmed and shared on social media, which could lead to me losing my job or to a mob would harassing me. Another thing white people lose their jobs for is calling the police on black people.

In one city there was a group of black activists who went right in front of someone's house who had supposedly harassed his black neighbor, and they chanted "hey hey, ho ho, racist (person's name) has got to go". Chanting in the street is one thing, but in a bunch of cases, groups that started out chanting similar things have ended up doing a lot more than chanting.

All other things being equal, for a white person in the U.S.A. today, it seems easier to live your life where there aren't that many black people.

Christopher Rufo is the journalist who reported on critical race theory indoctrination at Sandia National Labs, and, on Tucker Carlson Tonight, made a successful appeal to President Trump to put an end to it. He is a brave man. https://www.amren.com/news/2020/09/christopher-rufo-vs-the-critical-race-theory-goliath/ :

> I have had threats, harassment, vandalism, people coming after my wife and kids, you name it. But doesn’t principled dissent require great risk? There are two ways you can fight this: the first is by appealing to civil discourse, moderate pluralism and debate. That strategy has failed. The ‘principled dissent’ strategy is the only one that remains. We have to stand up to institutions that could obliterate us at any moment. We have to steel ourselves with our principles and have the confidence that those principles will ultimately protect us, whatever the odds.
