KANSAS CITY GRASSROOTS EFFORT BRINGS #BLACKLIVESMATTER SIGNS TO BROOKSIDE & WALDO!!!
We notice local social media filling up with "opinions" on this bit of political signage and street level politics that might spark even more petty infighting among the always angsty middle-class denizens of Kansas City.
To wit . . .
BLACK LIVES MATTER SIGNS COMING SOON TO MOSTLY WHITE BROOKSIDE & WALDO HAVE SPARKED STRONG SUPPORT AND SOME HATERATION!!!
A young lady activist is spreading the word and earning accolades from middle-class housewives and more . . . So far she has 125 signs going up soon with hundreds more homeowners waiting for a chance to donate and take part in the effort. Meanwhile a few angry residents are too scared to comment publicity and fear rebuke from their otherwise enthusiastic neighbors.
Whilst it's important not to get too worked up by a piece of cardboard . . . Some locals are surprised by the support of their neighbors of cultural shift that's not yet completely understood.
How the Black Lives Matter movement went mainstream
