Black Lives Matter Murals & Tagging Mark Kansas City Summer 2020

Local expression of social justice dreams, rage and political messages dominate the public space . . . Moreover, the inevitable attacks against the art will be regarded as hate crimes.

This form of public discourse goes back to Ancient Roman murals and now signs, streets and tags proclaiming the BLM movement have spread across the world.

Here's one local example out of many . . .

KCK mural may be worth more than a thousand words

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Local artist put the finishing touches on a mural at 18th and Quindaro Blvd. It's part of the Black Lives Matter movement. They hope this piece of artwork stops people in their tracks to start a conversation. Lucky Easterwood spray painted a powerful message of hope.

Couldn’t/wouldn’t paint a house no matter how much money you gave them, They only want to destroy, look at their neighborhoods; but if you want graffiti or some gang sign or slogan, they will jump right on that!

BLM is a racist hate group. To say BLM and not let anyone say all lives matter is racist. Black people need to stop lying and killing!

Ask google fiber to delete BET from your channel lineup and they will tell you to just not watch it, but create a WET and you will never get it aired, it would be racist. The double standard is mind boggling! But wait for November when we silent ones vote!!!!,
