Your statements are fundamentally true but lost in the babble (as you describe it) is the fact that since 1964 when the "Great Society" started paying women to have children while prohibiting men to live with them outside marriage, the black family unit was effectively destroyed. Since people inherently vote their pocketbooks, black America has voted predominately democrat for 56 years. Please tell us how much the dem party has done for blacks in America in the last 50 yrs. Biden was 28 yrs old when he came to office and is now 77. Nearly 50 years as a "public servant" and is still regurgitating the dem line with not a single accomplishment regarding race. Single mothers are among the greatest demographic in poverty and the dems created a dependency in that group that fuels the black inner city condition to today. You're too young to remember a time when there weren't ghettos and masses of black people living in government subsidized "projects" keeping them virtually sequestered to themselves. All that's been accomplished by the magnanimous dem benefactors is clearly on display.
Now, most of the people I know are couples where both work and both have degrees. Things are just way more expensive now. That hurts the lower class way more than other groups. The idea of living a normal life on minimum wage is not really an option.
Now do I think it is the governments job to fix all that? Not really, I am good with raising minimum wage for sure though.
Having the police beat you up, harass you, and in some instances kill your neighbors without repercussions is just the final straw. In this case there will be justice hopefully but it seems to take video evidence and public outcry to get that to happen if you are not wealthy.
I would be willing to bet the majority of the protesters are not overly political. They probably lean left because they are seen as more diverse but my guess is they dislike all of the above.
