Kansas City leaders, participants draw parallels between 1968 race riots, 2020 demonstrations

How did we end up here again? One month ago, George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis. In 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in Memphis. Both senseless deaths prompted protests in Kansas City that turned violent, forcing us to confront the impact of race in our society.

Some Americans will never appreciate America, until after they have helped destroy it, and have then begun to suffer the consequences.

I knew a cop in the 1968 riots that shot into crowds in KCMO at will. He is sure he killed some people. But nowbody cared then.

Maybe they were males throwing large rocks or bricks at police from behind the cover of law-abiding female protesters near the front of the line like they do now. That's how pu**ies pretend to act like tough guys at protestes. Megaweird.
