He assumes, wrongly, that the “activism” was the reason people cared, people paid attention. For a brief, shining moment, following a list of names of unarmed/innocent black people being killed by police for no cognizable reason, people gave a damn. Not just activists, but people. White people. black people, green people. People. 

No decent person could shrug off a needless killing of a human being by police, and no decent person could ignore that cops were killing black people at a disproportionate rate.* It didn’t have to be a struggle between cops killing black people versus killing white people, as there was an overarching recognition that cops shouldn’t be killing unarmed innocent people regardless of color. And ending the killing was one thing everyone could agree upon.
