    Looking over the comments about the BLM protest the other night, it seems like every other comment reproached them for marching in such an liberal and supportive enclave.  People wrote things like “You’re preaching to the choir!” and “West Seattle is already supporting the movement!” and “Why waste time marching in liberal and progressive neighborhoods?!” 

    If there can be a silver lining here maybe it’s that those people might now re-think their views.

      And in case anyone is confused, those commenters are not supporters of BLM. They would like it swept under the rug, but the fact is, there wouldn’t be a protest here if we didn’t have a problem here.

    I also had a BLM sign stolen from my yard last week. What the heck is going on? I don’t like Donald trump signs either but I don’t go stealing those from private property!
