Obviously, these things are meaningful to the protesters

Otherwise, they wouldn't be targets of the protest movement. It seems to me that both sides are getting all worked up over symbols more than substance.

I get that black people are frustrated and angry because they're still on the losing end of systemic inequality. Improvement has been coming at a snail's pace in some places and not at all in other places. But most of the energy expended in this protest movement has been directed at symbols and tokens. So guess what I'm expecting we'll get? Symbolic change and token gestures.
