There are major variations in the essence of Black Lives Matter protests in the US and the UK. Two issues were focused in the US protest: systemic injustice and violence by the police. They can literally look indistinguishable. However, in UK, the preference was solely given to systematic injustice.

What’s especially distinct from the anti-discriminatory movements of the 1960s, including the Long Hot Summer of 1967, which saw 159 protests, is that they are now progressive and racially diverse, more egalitarian. Everyone has the principle on the board, but when the transition has to be made, optimistic passengers, who have followed the revolution, hand down abruptly with intense pragmatism.
In the background of the protests triggered by George Floyd’s death, this is what needs to be done to counter prejudice. Racial prejudice is still a big concern; the government must admit.
BAME people have always been marginalized by society, since people are oblivious to racism or are afraid to accept the issue. People have to accept that racism in UK and US remains a significant issue, particularly in government, and they have to listen to the Black community more. The teaching on diversity of businesses is not strong, they need tougher debates and they must reform the curriculum, which relies more on American slavery and on the position of Britain.

The rise in enthusiasm for Black Lives Matter in the UK has contributed to a growing engagement in recognizing how racism is being integrated into their culture and systems – and, most critically, what they should all do to undermine oppressive racial frameworks.

Citizens must embrace this public attention and the alternative outlets that have emerged in reaction to suffering and agony. The United Kingdom and the United States must retain pressure to have effective answers. A significant piece of research that have been long promoted is the learning of immigration and imperialism in British schools.

Trends like #BlackLivesMatter are not hobbies or social parties or pretentious contemporary culture occasions to be accessorized. Transition is expected to have an objective, else it’s just a phenomenon. When we learn whether moderate leaders believe the aims of the Black Lives Matter campaign are nonsensical, or whether carrying a symbol is personal, or that funding has to be cut down as it seems like there may be other, more sinister powers at action, what we’re really saying is: it’s tough – so we’re getting back to our ease zones.
