Fighting multiple disasters at the same time is tough. I'm certainly not in a position to tell black Americans what to do. Wait until the pandemic dies down - there surely will be another police murder to protest then?

And, sure, businesses need to deal with a second wave as importantly as dealing with the first, although I hope we are better prepare and have a better idea of what the virus does.

Well, if your government had given significant stimulus to the people who needed it, rather than to the fat cats...

Your point is well taken but there is a bit of a difference between protesting a few months of combating a pandemic and a few hundred years of people being murdered by the authorities

No because I have already made an irrefutable point and you keep going so what is the point?

Here this is the last I am going to say about this.  I bother to keep discussing with you because I find it so perplexing that someone so intelligent is refusing to see my simple and irrefutable point:


Yes, it is ok to sympathize
with the protesters and their (our, it is our cause too, some of us just
see the folly of gathering in large crowds) cause and the whole
movement is too big for the governments to stop so they have to allow
it.  The hypocrisy lies for those that are still extremely worried about
the virus and yet have no problem with hundreds of thousands perhaps
even millions gathering together closer than concerts and sporting
events due to their passions. They were able to shut down and in some
cases completely take away people's businesses and jobs because the risk
was not worth it and now this means nothing. Quite frankly what is the
point to even talk about the virus anymore?  It is too late. Keep you
and your loved ones even further away from people and hope they don't
get you or the virus potency fades away due to herd immunity. It's all
screwed now.

Except that the circumstances aren't the exact same. As the BBC article pointed out.

Did you have a national lockdown?

I see a lot of protesters wearing (medical) masks. And I see the same message being repeated:
