BLM’s Kafkatrap Problem

I think enough time has passed now to be able to speak frankly and reflect soberly on some of the recent events surrounding the BLM-inspired protests and the associated social media furore, without devolving into an ad hominem spiral. I was disturbed by a lot of what I saw online on #blackouttuesday, and by a lot of what I’ve seen since then. Not more disturbed than when I saw the footage of George Floyd being killed. But disturbed nonetheless.
