I'm sure people said the same about the American civil rights movement in the 60's. I haven't seen anybody protesting fire departments or EMTs, but putting that aside, are you suggesting that protesting against police brutality is arguably the same as police brutality against minorities? I'm sure Canada is leaps and bounds ahead of the U.S., but that's really not saying very much. POC Canadians face the same problems that POC Americans do, and don't get me started on how Canada treats the First Nations. If you would like specific data, I can provide it. I don't know if you're white, a POC, or what, but I'm sure you can understand that not all oppression is visible to the public eye. I encourage you to tell this story to a POC and ask for their sympathy. I'd love to hear how that goes. What do you think their end goal is? Hang on, that's a very confident "no". What do you have to back that up? Are you an authority on the matter? It kinda seems like ending racism WOULD solve it. Also, I'm not sure why you put "racism" in quotes. I'm sure the majority of people aren't actively racist in the "KKK lynchings" sense, but then again, nobody seriously argued that that was the case, did they? There is such a problem. I'm sorry that you haven't been exposed to it. I don't understand, what's the issue that's bigger than racism? Uh...listening to victims of racism would be a good start.
