When they try to co-opt some group’s message as their own. It comes off as weakness, to me; be they black, white, green, purple, or orange.

I know they do it in an attempt to de-legitimize the group in question; but, it always has the opposite effect on me. It makes me want to find out more about the organized communities, for example, Black Lives Matter, Occupy, Parkland students, Standing Rock protestors, etc.
