numnuts Posted January 28 Share Posted January 28 With hindsight, I think that a big part of BLM getting all of the mass media coverage they did, when protesting the demise of George Floyd in May 2020, was to do with increasing vaccine confidence in black people and other ethnic minorities. The PTB knew that the vaccines would arrive by the end of the year and they wanted to increase the uptake in those groups, which they knew had lesser trust in the system. All of a sudden those groups were supposed to matter more and we had an increase in black and ethnic minority people appearing on TV and getting more top jobs etc.. By collectively feeling more inclusive in society, they would then have more trust in the system and be more likely to get vaccinated. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
