Seems to me the question of whether or not this is a truly popular movement representative of the poor and working class in America, is being answered right before your very eyes in Portland and the "we need to be more racist" voices should never speak again.
You're wrong.

And you're wrong for the reasons I told you that you would be wrong - you don't know the labor class, you aren't really "regular" people, you're mythologizing something you don't understand every bit as much as the shitlibs demonize that same class.
Somewhere along the line you decided "the working class" was Archie Bunker, probably because you internalized shitlib propaganda, but the reality is that the labor class, today, is your uber driver, and the guy who made your Big Mac, and the lady working the counter at Staples.
And their brown, and their young, and their trans/bisexual/nonbinary and they got ADD and they're differently abled and they don't give a shit about union cards and what the local UAW Shop Steward wants them to do - they don't even know his name.

That's why you're wrong
And y'all would know this, if "interacting with the working class" didn't consist entirely of trolling bystanders at protests to find contrarian opinions to "darkwash" your own nonsense through brown (usually conservative) voices for you... you're not labor class, it shows.
For example - if you'd ever lived in mixed communities before, you'd know that African American churches are a hotbed of reactionary, right wing opinions and that being Black, or voting Democrat, doesn't stop holy rollers from yelling "pull up your damn pants" like Bill Cosby
So, finding one fucking dude with a brown face who thinks the protesters are a bunch of "outside agitators" and "white college kids" who need "more police, not less" doesn't prove shit.

But again, you don't know any Black ppl and you think they're a monolith as much as libs do
You aren't about that; you aren't from labor class neighborhoods, you don't have labor class friends, you don't know labor class people, and on a personal level, you haven't worked a fucking day in your life... but you're pretty sure they ain't going for this "trans rights" shit
Well, you're wrong.

The labor class has known for a long damn time that we're all in this together and if you had lived that life you glamorize so earnestly, you'd have known already that the folks putting in the work to organize are primarily young, poor, nonwhite and different
Cops ain't labor. The firemen ain't labor. Suburbanite tool and die makers clocking 80K a year and voting Trump ain't even labor anymore either.

Labor made your burrito this afternoon and she'd like to talk to you about healthcare, a fair minimum wage and police violence.
