Id normally agree that violence is not the answer. But they took a knee & were heavily ridiculed, more innocent black men and women continue to die and NOTHING has been done to stop it. Instead, we have a President who encourages white supremacy and any and all progress has just been set back 50 years. Not to mention the economic inequality only exacerbated by COVID-19, its a disaster.
I don't think anybody was ridiculed across the board for taking a knee. Some people ridiculed it, sure. But I think by and large that's not what happened. That said, when you protest you know that somebody else may counter-protest, or twist your words, or just say something stupid. It's a bit naive to expect otherwise. Nobody has a monopoly on protest.

But what is happening now is that people are nominally blaming the president yet using that as a free pass to loot some flat screen TV or alcohol, or just destroy somebody else's business out of pure spite. That's not protest. They're ultimately hurting themselves.
