It's a shame that everyone ignored this.
This is yet another case of a bunch of white people putting themselves in front of a PoC cause and making it about them. They fail to see the absurdity inherent in telling PoC people what should offend them. They just jump in front with a megaphone and seize control. Their default behavior is so built around consuming they don't even realize when they're doing it. Then when someone speaks up, they eat their own.

Where are the black voices in the conversation? They're being ignored and drowned out by the white voices driving the discussion with a low effort display of "solidarity" while the rest of us are out in the streets protesting daily for real, meaningful change.

If you're not black, your place is BESIDE or BEHIND this cause. You lack the fundamental experience to lead the cause.
