Why it’s wrong and unfair to call the peaceful BLM protests ‘riots’

Don't be racist, come and resist

As Martin Luther King once said: “riots are the language of the unheard”. This has never been more apparent than in today’s vindictive political climate where POCs and other minority persyns are treated as though it was 1930s Germany. Everywhere you look, POCs (particularly African Americans) are facing oppression and need a voice now more than ever. That voice can only be heard through peaceful protests, which is what we’re bearing witness to now.

Vicious members within alt-right circles and beyond are slandering what we are seeing as violent, destructive riots. Of course, this is all nonsense and baseless accusations. These are protests, NOT riots! I don’t think I can spell that anymore clearly for you imbeciles out there that believe incorrectly. Sure a few buildings might have been caught fire, some stores may have mysteriously lost stock, and a couple of cars might have been unfortunately crashed, but do any of those things matter nearly as much as ending normalised systemic oppression?

All these things are merely a symptom of the white male Patriarchy that dominates us. To the liars and frauds who claim that these brave and heroic demonstrations are riots, you are simply wrong and your hate opinions hold no weight in the upcoming utopia.

These protests are a symbol of hope in an era of darkness. Right now we are in despair, and only together in the illuminating fire of a splendid protest can we remind ourselves that Drumpf’s fascist regime is soon to fall. It will not be long until Joe Biden defeats that orange monster in a landslide and peace and prosperity is restored. Racism will be gone forever and each fierce, empowered, and courageous protestor can rest easy knowing that they saved America through protests, NOT riots. I just hope my hundreds of brilliant blog posts deconstructing Drumpf’s bigotry are enough to earn me a Nobel peace prize, or at least a medal.

Diversity is our strength.
