We’re hearing that the Trumpist rabble who “stormed” the Capitol were allowed to do so because they’re white, whereas the BLM protesters were beaten bloody, because they’re black.
The latter’s surely true; although it was only the protesters (and journalists) who were mauled by the police at BLM protests, while arsonists and vandals in the wake of those protests got a pass—just like those who streamed into the Capitol.
Moreover, the Capitol police did treat protesters yesterday with brutal violence: shooting the unarmed Ashli Babbitt (white), throwing another protester (white) off a balcony (he survived the 50-foot fall), and losing three more (white) protesters to unidentified “medical emergencies.” That violence (the shooting and the throwing) went down after the hysterically reported “invasion” of the building. (We don’t yet know anything about those “medical emergencies,” and may never know.)
To racialize what happened yesterday just helps widen the already deep divide that has been carefully exploited, if not engineered, to keep all the have-nots vulnerable to even more predation from on high.
