Its like, people are theoretically fine with protests, (Lord knows we go on and on about the fucking Boston Tea Party enough, and pay at least some lip service to MLK) until they think that it might actually negatively impact them in some way.

That’s the point.

Protests aren’t there to be convenient and comforting. 

If you aren’t part of the protest, it’s supposed to make you uncomfortable. It’s supposed to make you upset. It’s supposed to make you notice shit that you otherwise ignore.
