    I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it

    Doubt it, some maybe, and some will be white supremacists out to cause riots and blame it on BLM protests, there'll be a lot of reasons for protestors being there, mainly it'll be for the right reasons though, bringing light on the wrongs blacks have suffered.

If they were after equality for their black brothers and sisters then they'd be better served by looking to the most oppressed black people in the world, and I can tell you for nothing that they're not in ****ing oregon

    Surely they’re campaigning to their own government about domestic matters that are within the remit of that government.
    I get your wider point that there are folk in worse situations, but it doesn’t really seem preposterous that people campaign on issues that directly affect them.
    Should UK trade unions pack in and campaign for construction workers’ rights in Saudi as their situation is worse? Should suffragettes have campaigned instead for women in Afghanistan to get a vote instead of them?
    Of course not, they are trying to make a difference to their own lives, through their own government.
    Some BLM actions and proposals are questionable, but people are sick of getting nowhere with the normal channels and indeed peaceful protests. The US is going to be an absolute powder keg in the run up to the election. Trump will make it worse and people will die. There are already armed vigilantes wandering streets.

    What bothers me is their consistent campaign across the world, specifically "defund police"

    In the American context it makes sense because of the ****ed up way their systems work and how it needs to be reformed.

    It makes **** all sense in much of Europe because the ****ed up systems that the US still uses were disposed of donkeys ago. Like seriously a police force for a supermarket that's what ****ing security guards see for and most supermarket security guards have more domain knowledge than a US police anyway.

    It's a bit like the "sovereign citizen" ****ts wandering around Australia quoting repealed californian penal law as if it means anything.
    You'd think they knew they were in Oz rsther than the US what with being upside down...

    Saw that on the news the other week, mental stuff. White malitias armed to the teeth walking about the streets saying they were there to protect statues, buildings etc, then there was a black malitia equally armed to the teeth ready to protect BLM protestors, and the police staying well way from it all, letting them just get on with it. Looked like civil war was ready to break out.
