In particular, Spence praises Black Lives Matter for its ability to reject respectability politics. At first, respectability politics may not seem to have very much to do with neoliberalism. Spence argues otherwise, insisting the argument that equality can be achieved only by looking and acting respectable is, at its core, a neoliberal attitude. Respectability politics proclaim that by buying into the system, you receive the privilege of being treated well by the system when indeed, it should be a right that the system treat you fairly. And then there's a virtuosic conclusion that discusses how Martin Luther King Jr. was just one part of a larger civil rights movement and how, by focusing on King the individual and not the hundreds that also helped to organize, say, the Montgomery Bus Boycott, we buy into neoliberal attitudes about individuals' importance over the group. It's inspired and parallels the book's introductory deep dive in which Spence details a series of setbacks in his life (a car accident, stress of his job, etc.) that he was able to transcend thanks to access he has that many others in this country—especially other African-Americans, he mindfully points out—do not. A system of friends, family, and colleagues assisted Spence.
