Would the black community achieve more in the fight against racism if they quit making martyrs out of criminals and glamorizing thugs?

George Floyd did not deserve to die, but he was a known criminal and even held a gun to a pregnant woman to rob her house. And yes, we know the police officer charged was a piece of shit who deserves a murder rap as well. However, Floyd is admired more than say Dorn who was a retired police officer protecting his friends pawn shop and killed during the protest

Is there a natural inclination to attack white people if a white person kills a black person, but ignore the crime if a black person kills a black person or a black kills a white, because maybe they are acting out on their own personal issues with racism and this gives them a platform?

And going back to the original question: think about even rap stars with a criminal record and sexist and racist songs who die via gang violence then they are mourned like saints? They get more publicity than say Prince, a very talented musician who wasn't a criminal, who helped people and other musicians.

Is this what holds the black community back from achieving their goals?
