TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY 'BLACK LIVES MATTTER' PROTESTERS DENOUNCE ALLEGED WESTPORT RACIAL PROFILING AT SUN FRESH MARKET!!!
While the topic of Westport street privatization was under discussion at City Hall, on the streets of Westport social unrest erupted.
To wit . . .
ACTIVISTS, PROTESTERS, BLACK LIVES MATTER SUPPORTERS ALONG WITH ANTIFA PROTESTED IN WESTPORT AGAINST RACIAL PROFILING AND THE UPCOMING SECURITY CRACKDOWN!!!
Sunfresh was the target BUT the upcoming crackdown in Westport was also a point of contention.
Kansas City Citizen Media:
"Around 40 people turned up to protest police brutality and racial profiling at the Westport Sunfresh Super Market.
Recent events seem to focus on one particular Sheriff's deputy drawing weapons on black customers and/or just about anyone who doesn't look like they're at Westport shopping for real estate.
Westport Security is known for their brutal police force. We have even recently received a statement that a landowner at Westport that's been pushing for privatization is indeed an open racist.
There are virtually no statistics kept by the Justice Department indicating how many people are wounded and killed by police each year. Some sources state that over 100,000 have been killed by police in the past 30 years. What we do know is police violence is commonplace in Kansas City and is rated number three in the US for police killings. Access to food has been another continuing issue for poor people and people of color.
We are certain that City Hall will vote today with the racist property owners for the gentrification and privatization of Westport."
Turns out they were right about the vote . . .
Take a look at an COMPREHENSIVE clip of the protest that begins with BLM chanting:
You decide . . .
