Obviously some people haven’t learned from what happened as a result of the #ericsheppardchallenge. Committing criminal activities to prove your point usually encourages more people to be against you rather than for you. When the #ericsheppardchallenge flag burners started associating themselves with #blacklivesmatter it turned millions of people against the entire movement. The same can be said about vandalizing a statue of a historic icon in American history. You won’t be convincing anyone that Black Lives Matter, you’ll just be convincing people to oppose your cause.
