"white skin"!
Make that christian white skin. You did see those T-shirts? Also, in very many, perhaps the majority, of cases, the BLM marchers were heavily if not mainly white. Certainly following Floyd's murder.

However - I propose a different thing altogether.

Just "whose side are you on?" and how that reflects in the mentality of the police force(s) as a whole. I don't don't the crackdown may have come sooner if the rioters "didn't look like me" from the cop's point of view. Or better, "vote like me". (I used the first version as an attempt at the irony of the incredible racism the first statement implies - and it's acceptable for "some people" to use such expressions). Sides may, certainly in urban areas, lay upon a racial divide.

They had plenty of warning so perhaps we need fall back onto occam's razor and go for the simple solution: it was allowed to happen not because of anything racial but purely political.

Now, of course, let's add to he fire: a perceived show of strength by the far right or as a mechanism to disgrace them by the far left? Conspiracy theories - egalitarian reality !
