I explained many times now that their thinking was of great influence to the analytical lenses used in many different social sciences and that I can trace quite a number of arguments back to deconstructionism, writings on power structures, not just in society but in language itself, all of which became very fashionable in no small part thanks to among others the french philosophers derrida and foucault. I did not blame BLM on them, but I connected BLM in a wider context to that work and those analyses.

HAH! thanks, derrida, for BLM!' talk. you are a very silly little boy.
You're wrong in ridiculing 70s postmodernism as out of vogue and insisting it doesn't matter anymore today, because it patently does.
