Sounds like a Rock-em, Sock-em "good" time.
You both have points, but the reaction to blm and minimization is pointless. I agree, there were Irish and others that were shafted, but the bigger picture will have to be inclusive.
ALL life matters. Black, white, yellow, blue, dog, cat, horse, tree...
There aren't any sides to take. The old bullshit has to go. When everyone unanimously joins in that agreement, we can move forward with a better system. One that doesn't erase or try to forget. One that no longer attempts to cancel or revise or rewrite. There are plenty of blanks to be filled in, but we do still have lots of personal accounts and records.
It's coming out now that more are looking into things. Patience!
You always have interesting points to make. Most people do not behave like all lives matter. I agree with you that a better system would be one in which all unanimously join in agreement, but only in theory. In practice, that sounds like the world of a tyrannical government, or some kind of meta-verse, singularity nightmare. The fascinating thing about people is the process of "agreement." I know that modern psychology wants us to believe that we are just products of our environment, but that doesn't mean anything except excuses if you start to pick it apart.
