Analysis carried out by the Pew Research Center has revealed that just one in six protesters turning out at BLM demonstrations in the US are actually black.

The research notes that the plurality of those present at the gatherings have been white people.

The full breakdown reveals that just 17 percent of protesters were black, while 46 percent were white.

A further 22 percent were Hispanic, with eight percent being Asian, the analysis highlights.

Perhaps even more telling is the demographic breakdown in terms of political affiliation.

Almost four out of every five “protesters” identified as Democrats or Democrat-leaning, with fewer than 17 percent identifying as Republicans.

The findings dovetail with comments made by BET Founder Robert Johnson yesterday, who noted that most black Americans “laugh” at white people attempting to bring down monuments and cancel everything they deem to be “racist”.

Johnson said that white poeople “have the mistaken assumption that black people are sitting around cheering for them saying ‘Oh, my God, look at these white people. They’re doing something so important to us. They’re taking down the statue of a Civil War general who fought for the South.”

“You know, black people, in my opinion, black people laugh at white people who do this the same way we laugh at white people who say we got to take off the TV shows.” Johnson said in an interview with Fox News.

“Look, the people who are basically tearing down statues, trying to make a statement are basically borderline anarchists, the way I look at it,” he continued, adding “They really have no agenda other than the idea we’re going to topple a statue.”

“It’s not going to give a kid whose parents can’t afford college money to go to college. It’s not going to close the labor gap between what white workers are paid and what black workers are paid. And it’s not going to take people off welfare or food stamps.” Johnson urged.

“It’s “tantamount to rearranging the deck chairs on a racial titanic. It absolutely means nothing.” Johnson asserted.

Top Footballer Tells LeBron James: ‘Stay Out of Politics’

Zlatan Ibrahimovic doubled down on call for athletes to stop pushing divisive issues.

Top footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic has refused to back down after LeBron James responded to his call for athletes to stick to sports and stay out of politics.

The controversy began when Ibrahimovic said last week, “[LeBron] is phenomenal at what he’s doing, but I don’t like when people have some kind of status, they go and do politics at the same time.”

“Do what you’re good at. Do the category you do. I play football because I’m the best at playing football.”

“I don’t do politics. If I would be a political politician, I would do politics. That is the first mistake people do when they become famous and they become in a certain status. Stay out of it. Just do what you do best, because it doesn’t look good.”

LeBron responded by saying he wouldn’t shut up and dribble and that he would continue to use his platform for “positive change”.

However, Milan superstar Ibrahimovic shot back, telling a press conference that sports personalities need to stop pushing divisive issues.

“Athletes unite the world, politics divide it,” said Zlatan.

“Our role is to unite the world by doing what we do best. Athletes should be athletes and politicians should do politics,” he added.

Ibrahimovic is a rare example of someone standing up to the woke mob, who often reserve their most vitriolic hate for celebrities who have the sheer temerity to refuse to take a stance.

It’s a damning indictment of where we are as a society when that is seen as a diabolical act of defiance.

Make America Ugly Again: Biden Scraps Trump Order Requiring Classical Architecture

America was in real danger of buildings looking nice again

Joe Biden has scrapped an Executive Order by President Trump that required new Federal buildings to be built only in beautiful classical styles.

Trump’s order from December mandated that buildings be designed in only classical, Neoclassical, Art Deco, Georgian, Greek Revival, and Beaux-Arts styles.

The order was an attempt to stop the trend of government buildings being soulless brutalist concrete boxes (see above), rather than constructions reminiscent of the buildings of ancient Athens and Rome.

The order noted that the founding fathers “wanted America’s public buildings to inspire the American people and encourage civic virtue,” and that “They sought to use classical architecture to visually connect our contemporary Republic with the antecedents of democracy in classical antiquity, reminding citizens not only of their rights but also their responsibilities in maintaining and perpetuating its institutions.”

Trump’s order emphasised that “New Federal building designs should, like America’s beloved landmark buildings, uplift and beautify public spaces, inspire the human spirit, ennoble the United States, command respect from the general public, and, as appropriate, respect the architectural heritage of a region.”

America was in real danger of buildings looking nice again. Thank goodness Biden stepped in.

As we have previously highlighted, Brutalist and Deconstructivist styles have been embraced in the US and even in Europe, where classical buildings are torn down and replaced with giant ugly, spirit sapping monstrosities.

Leftists celebrated the scrapping of Trump’s order, reasoning that classical architecture is fascist, art isn’t necessary in modern democracies, and Trump really wanted to make climate change worse… or something:

With cognitive dissonance on max, some even argued that classic architecture is “ugly” :
