The nice middle-class people who post about “the racist murder” of Breonna Taylor do it because it makes them feel edgy and important. They are completely indifferent to the violence, destruction, and hatred that their careless chirping makes possible.
The obligatory “I hate this racist country” Facebook statuses are a class marker. “I’m one of the cool, hip people with good jobs, nice houses, and a well-deserved sense of moral superiority,” they signal.
It’s getting worse because virtue-signaling online is the only remaining way of connecting with people. The overlap between BLM-supporters and Covidiots is close to 100%, so people get ever more rabid in their efforts to Breonnataylor a feeling of relevance and community for themselves.
I really wish that instead of all this we felt the sense of community and solidarity against the bastards who engineered the COVID-craze and the riots to keep us hating each other while they exploit us. But as usual, the dumb schmucks are at each other’s throats over yet another hoax.
