WHITE PEOPLE HAVE GENTRIFIED BLACK LIVES MATTER. IT’S A PROBLEM. Black Lives Matter was once shunned by the white establishment. But now, it’s chic. And that’s a problem. BLM banners fly from homes in Silver Lake. BLM posters are taped to the windows of Portland coffee shops. BLM hashtags fill users’ bios on Twitter and Tinder. Institutions including Uber, Airbnb and the National Football League have embraced Black Lives Matter. (Yes, the same NFL that shunned Colin Kaepernick four years ago for kneeling in protest of police brutality now issues calls to “end racism” in their endzones.)
