Everywhere, I'm seeing quotes from black "activists" and their allies that the Chauvin conviction "isn't justice", or "it's just a first step".
I thought the Civil War was a pretty important first step. And all the practically innumerable civil rights laws and policies that have been enacted since, aren't those steps?
The truth is nothing will ever be enough. The racial grifting is too profitable, the psychic crutch of victimhood too comforting to cast off, the ease with which racial strife can be leveraged to obtain more power too great an opportunity to overlook. It is a relapse into simplistic tribal politics, and it will ultimately fail - at least partly because progressive white chiefs will seek to manipulate and control the whole business for their own benefit.
