That vandalism and hate is wrong regardless of the source, and most large protest movements have criminal fools like we saw in the trucker protests.  Just because some BLM protestors might light fire to businesses and loot doesn't mean all BLM protestors are bad or criminals or that all BLM'ers should be written off without listening to them.
Lets see now....

BLM protesters were complaining about unequal treatment of black people in society. We know that that is a problem... a string of publicized killings/shootings by officers targeting black people are evidence of that. (Also consider how sometimes laws are applied unequally. For example: despite marijuana use being roughly the same for black and white people, black people were more than twice as likely to be arrested for simple possession.)

There was a problem, nothing seemed to be done to address the problem, so people protested.

It should also be noted that even though they were widespread, the majority of protests were peaceful.

Compare that to the Trucker "freedom rally"... their protests are not based on legitimate concerns, but cries about "Mah Freedum", often accompanied by bad science and moronic rhetoric.

So one group wanting to address a real problem in society, the other wanting the right to spread a potentially deadly disease among the population.
