I don't, however, see why that needs to be addressed to one race specifically, when people of all walks of life in this generation are guilty of that.
Because, their "religion" blames white people for everything bad and absolves all other races of any guilt. Blacks and Asians can do no wrong and if they do, it always fault of "white supremacy". This logic can be seen when leftards discuss Blacks attacks on Asians.

Not to mention "critical race theory" and tsunami of blaming everything, from math to furniture designs, as being "white supremacy" propaganda.

If you read the actual sign its absolutely fine. White people are loud about black/non-white issues and bad about providing space for those communities to speak for themselves. This is a sign directed at liberal white people.

How are you guys mad about liberals being told to shut up? Seems like a win win for both left and right.

White people are just notoriously more guilty of this behavior. Plus experiences about race from indigenous, asian, hispanic, etc. can be similar in a way that white race experience cannot. The note says "White people in particular" meaning that it mostly applies to white people but also to everyone inadvertently centering themselves.

Agree. Though I don't see where it's supposedly aimed at liberals specifically. Personally, I read it and went "eh," and immediately assumed that there is a 99% probability that it was put up because there was a hell of a lot of hate and vitriol aimed at George Floyd for nearly a year after his death.

No matter what any outsiders think of him, his family and others who cared about him had to listen to that and still do while grieving that loss, so I'm not really all that surprised that someone put up a sign. Calling out any group in particular is provoking and just asking for more trouble... but I can understand why they did it after a year of a lot of BS after his death, and what it asked of people aren't exactly bad things.

It does not outright say liberals but the language is very clearly targeted towards left leaning individuals. terms like "Decenter" and "BIPOC" are pretty clear indications to me that this is referring to the white liberal person who wants to grab the microphone when perhaps now isn't the time.

The sign isn't particularly inflammatory to those seeking to bring hate there. Most white people coming in support would and should agree that now is not the time for them to speak.

I'll just save time and say "Yes, this."

But this really only speaks to the source and the propagators of such. The people picking up "the cause" think they're basically modern day civil rights heroes, the same as any from the actual civil rights movement. But nowadays, with added caveat of the daily reward of constant high fives and Likes from their like-minded hive minds/echo chambers on the internet (you know, as opposed to the past during the real civil rights movement, where they were fighting for a very real just cause and just got bruises and jail time and no high fives of any kind from anyone). Like a rush, a fix. A reward. But all of these people crumble when confronted beyond the internet directly, or when they're not in a masked mob.
