More to the point . . .
NOW WITH A COMMON ENEMY . . . WILL THESE FAIR WAGE FIGHTER UNIFY KANSAS CITY DEMOCRATIC PARTY FACTIONS TO OPPOSE THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION???
Thanks to our reader community for sending us a statement in support of these protesters and a snapshot of thinking against the new GOP Prez . . .
"We know that in a few months, a president will take office who has pledged violence, deportation, racial profiling, and religious persecution. These are terrifying times, and the work that must be done can seem overwhelming.
"When the stakes are so high, it can feel impossible to pick your first step. But right now, as white people, we have to resist the urge to retreat. We must organize and reach people, specifically the people who we have not yet reached. "
Or, as critics claim . . . Are these protests simply facilitating the advancement of automated kiosks in order to ultimately create fewer jobs.
UPDATE: DOZENS ARRESTED FOR BLOCKING TRAFFIC UNDERWAY!!!
Also, for a laugh . . . A guy yelling at the protesters to get a better job was shouted down.
You decide . . .
