What you have in #BlackLivesMatter is an emerging religion, complete with its own pantheon of saints and martyrs and the latest iteration of what some have called negrolatry, or the Cult of the Magical Negro..
The latest “saint” in this religion was a highly flawed human being, to put it charitably. Career criminal, drug dealer, someone who threatened a pregnant woman with a gun during a robbery and then testified against his “colleagues” in exchange for a lighter sentence. He was quite clearly negative value added so far as his moral (or economic) worth to society is concerned. Then again, same goes for many prophets and founders of the great religions. The early Christians were the OG Bioleninists. Mohammed was probably a pedophile and a genocidaire. And so forth.
American libs mocked evangelicals for keeping their churches open, then tossed aside all their social distancing dogmas as soon as they threatened their religion of #BlackLivesMatters.
Though I don’t mean to signal against atheists, by all accounts, most Christians are very happy to be polytheists on this question. The Magical Negro is not a jealous God.
Sacrificing the elderly for the rival religion of stonks and wagecuckery was unacceptable. But as soon as the topic touched the Magical Negro, the laws of epidemiology must give way:
1,200 of the country's most renowned public health "experts" have signed a letter calling outdoor mass gatherings "vital to the national public health and to the threatened health specifically of Black people." We are in the midst of a mass psychotic break https://t.co/Ka57iiu4PO

And if they don’t, well, maybe you should have prayed harder.
Let's be clear about something: if there is a spike in coronavirus cases in the next two weeks, don't blame the protesters.

In fairness, one can still find the occasional true atheist – perhaps surprisingly, New Zealand’s Jacinda Ardern, who heads one of the few Western polities to have successfully suppressed the coronavirus epidemics, is one of them.

But Jacinda an exception. She is a true atheist! https://t.co/urf5Sj4i82

There are minor theological differences on the identity of Satan in this world. To the libs, it’s PUTLER and his high priest Dugin, fissuring America apart through Nazi bots on Twitter. To the chapos, racism is instead America’s original sin, questioning which is itself an implicit admission of white supremacy. The conservatives, in fairness, have a rather more radical take, doubting in Satan’s existence; perhaps it is something conjured up by the Blacks and the Dem plantation masters.
Yet regardless, the ultimate reality of this worldview cannot be questioned.
As with many new religions, it is the young who have taken to it most earnestly, condemning their boorish and “ignorant” elders.
One can cite polls, but this plebbit thread illustrates the point better than any poll can.
There are rituals of public abasement…

As with religions, it brooks no logical or facts derived from the mundane world. “Race realists” and “HBD bloggers” and the like have spent decades writing blog posts and papers picking apart the misleading rhetoric that Blacks are some uniquely discriminated against minority in America in terms of police arrests and shootings (after adjusting for their crime rates).
At the same time, public opinion has shifted further and further away from that viewpoint, and now Woke Capital companies such as Instagram are outright defining graphs based on FBI crime stats as “hate speech” and removing them from their platforms.
As with all true religions (Christianity has long ceased to be true in the modern West), it needs to be defended with blasphemy laws. While Americans still enjoy the small mercies of the First Amendment, Britons have no such protection..

Speaking of the UK, as with many religions, what originates in the metropole quickly diffuses into the colonies, depending on their peoples’ wiredness and proximity to Globo-Anglo culture.
There have been mass #BlackLivesMatter demonstrations in the major West European countries (see Guillaume Durocher, Pro-BLM Demonstrations Sweep Across Europe). Some 1% of Icelanders went out onto the streets to participate in a #BlackLivesMatters ritual.
In Eastern Europe, still thawing from the Soviet Freezer, #BlackLivesMatters demonstrations have been at least an order of magnitude smaller than in the West. However, while no country there has demographically substantial numbers of Blacks – though, in some of them, perhaps for not much longer, if globalists and Woke Capital have their way – even there, the most intensive #BlackLivesMatters activities seem to have taken place in Poland, the most pro-American geopolitically orientated polity as well as the country with some of the highest English language proficiency in the region.

I am reminded of the Warhammer 40K universe, in which Chaos cultists invoke demonic rituals to open “warp rifts” into the Immaterium and summon demons to take over their worlds.
In our own world, we may regard English language proficiency and Westernist geopolitical orientation as played much the same roles, as the “funnels” through which Chaos seeps into the mortal plane.
Alexey, feel free to kneel and apologize for your personal (real or perceived) transgressions against Africans anytime you want, but please refrain from trying to colonize our language. Cheers.

Fortunately, in Russia, dedicated Chaos cultists are as yet low in numbers – limited to quietly preaching their heresies to the elites, largely confined to the Internet, they cannot get out many bodies onto the streets – and those that do are quickly rolled up by the Inquisition.
SJW soylings on Twitter aside, AFAIK the only IRL #BlackLivesMatter protest in Russia involved a couple of Left Bloc activists trying to hang up a "Justice for Floyd" banner outside the US Embassy in Moscow.
They were quickly detained by the police. 🇷🇺👌https://t.co/j5eXcknkzL

So really, the one way that I’d say Russians (and much of the world outside the West) are indeed “privileged”, and entirely unironically, is that we get to observe America transform into a continent-sized cult compound with the dispassion and aloofness of, say, a mid-century American anthropologist observing the emergence of some cargo cult on a Pacific island.
Quaint, quirky. Perhaps slightly unsettling, but entirely mediated by physical and psychological distance.
And offering plenty of opportunities for concern trolling, which, while certainly cynical, is certainly understandable in the context of Americans having ceaselessly hectored Russians (Chinese, etc) over the past decades.
