What do you mean by that in that look different but are similar?Well the McCain and Sanders administrations so far look very different but similar. As for BLM, Charleston and Charlottesville, did they ever occur in this timeline or butterflied away entirely? Some timelines arguably come off as more better than OTL and For A More Gore Prosperous Tomorrow is one of them.
Black Lives Matter will still likely happen, given how the corruption regarding police brutality, racial profiling and the systematic issues have been there since way before the Gore Administration.
And yes, I will say that this timeline is more optimistic than OTL. Alot of alternate historians tend to fall into philsophical pit traps that the world has to be roughly equivalent in terms of "good" and "bad" events happening or near to of real life :/
