Kansas City 1968 MLK Riot Music Video

Take a look at this Kansas City creativity and history lesson which should provide some perspective on this this week of protest in Missouri that has captured the attention of the world.

1968 King Protest of Kansas City MO


"The first signs of disorder in the streets of Kansas City was a peaceful student march lead by Bruce R watkins, in response to the government failing to close schools across the city on April 9, the day of King's funeral. The riot was sparked when Kansas City Police Department deployed tear gas to the student protesters when they staged their performance outside City Hall."

And while this clip wasn't danceable in the least, it's certainly worth a look and just might evoke a greater understanding of the ongoing racial divisions and disparity that STILL inspire so much civil unrest.

white people, take inventory of those who are the loudest in their 'rage'.

They are your enemies and will not hesitate to turn on you should you be the one facing the illogical blood lust of a race mob.

Times are tough and cops tend to be stupid but if you can't see that Mike Brown was no angel then you spend too much time in the ghetto expressing 'outrage'.

Act silently. Do not let these people into your businesses or terminate them when you can ASAP. Do not do anything to better their lot in life, and actively work against them. Inform the IRS of any shady money activities using their 800 line. The illegal activities of the pro-Mike Brown people when observed, need to be reported to the police. This includes any outstanding infractions, code violations, warrants or more serious charges.

Did the city run the schools at that time or were they just too stupid to protest at the correct location?

This is all going to come to a head and there will be major blood in the streets when it does. The blacks will lose and lose big. man reason is the niggers will turn all America against the blacks as a whole. Good blacks will suffer great loses and community respect because of the thugs. Be sort of like during World War 2 when the saying the only good Kraut is a dead Kraut. Not all Germans was bad but all Germans suffered the same social status of being bad in the eyes of the world.

The biggest difference...? MLK didn't die last week. A young man with some aggression issues did. Michael Brown is not Martin King. Martin was a rebel with a cause; Michael was a rebel without a cause and it cost him his life. Should have kept running until he got home instead of trying to be a tough guy. He likely would not be dead today.

Here's an analogy that I'd like you to consider:

Read the synopsis here:

The United Federated Forces of the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA) was an American self-styled left-wing revolutionary group active between 1973 and 1975 that considered itself a vanguard army. The group committed bank robberies, two murders, and other acts of violence.

In his manifesto "Symbionese Liberation Army Declaration of Revolutionary War & the Symbionese Program", Donald DeFreeze wrote, "The name 'symbionese' is taken from the word symbiosis and we define its meaning as a body of dissimilar bodies and organisms living in deep and loving harmony and partnership in the best interest of all within the body."

Although the SLA considered themselves leaders of the black revolution, DeFreeze was its only black member. His seven-headed SLA cobra symbol was based on the seven principles of Kwanzaa, with each head representing a principle. The Swahili words for these seven principles are: Umoja (unity), Kujichagulia (self-determination), Ujima (collective work and responsibility), Ujamaa (cooperative economics), Nia (purpose), Kuumba (creativity) and Imani (faith).

Liberals would have you believe that groups like the SLA, should have been left alone and allowed to carry out their protests. They don't respect our legal system which helps to enforce society's values and ensure our public safety.
