Protests pushed Americans to want to do something about racial injustice. Good! There are policies that should be changed to make society fairer:
End the drug war.
Limit police unions.
Cut big government programs that encourage dependency.

But many activists make things worse in their obsession with race, say Kmele Foster of Freethink and radio host Larry Elder.
Black Lives Matter leaders even push Marxism and criticize the nuclear family.

Elder says blacks would benefit if more grew up in nuclear families: “The number one problem facing the black community is absence of fathers and Black Lives Matter actually is encouraging that.”
Also — are you NOT racist? Not good enough! Activists now say we must all be “anti-racist.”
Sounds nice, but Foster points out that activists pushing “anti-racism” have redefined the term “racism” to include “any policy that has an effect that is disproportionate.”
That means even supporting a tax deduction is racist because on average, whites deduct more than blacks.
The “anti-racists” also support segregation and other racist ideas, Foster adds.
A now-retracted project by the Smithsonian lists “hard work” and “the scientific method” as “white culture.”

That was meant to be “woke” — a critique of oppressive white culture — but it’s also eerily similar to what white supremacists say.
“It’s offensive to suggest that black people can’t aspire to or can’t possess all of the values that are outlined in a document like this,” Foster says.
Foster and Stossel prefer Martin Luther King’s dream for his children: a nation that judges “not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
