John Lennon's son criticizes the ideals of the Black Lives Matters movement

– The idea of being “color blind” has gone out of fashion. Looking at a character's personality above skin color is considered naive … I'm not sure that the modern vision of “racial consciousness” improves the situation, – says Sean.
