In this period, pacifism and non-profit social justice work is put forward as a replacement for revolutionary community organizing. We are told that this approach to put together a mass, but peaceful, protest movement can transform the state and even beat back its worst excesses. This includes the years of fatal police shooting of Black people all in urban areas all over the USA, which has resulted in the deaths of thousands.
Upwards of a thousand people are killed each year, the majority of whom are Black, poc or poor people. We are told that the pacifist and their campaigns can stop police terrorism and can negotiate for more favorable terms of oppression or so-called reforms by the state and without loss of violence of blood can avoid the inevitable uprising by the people.
