Counterpoint: Black Lives Matter Murals Already Adorn Kansas City Streets



Grainy late night photo and a note sent in from a reader . . .

"Hey, TKC, isn't Kansas City already covered in Black Lives Matter graffiti. Why are the taxpayers going to subsidize and donate to pay for more?"

Fair enough.

However, it seems that the upcoming city murals will hopefully be more artful, offer a chance for civic engagement with community groups and hopefully deter unsanctioned graffiti.

In fact, some locals hope are excited about the upcoming signage as reported by this MSM missive:

A look at where the Black Lives Matter murals will be placed in KC

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- Kansas City will soon be joining a number of cities across the nation who have Black Live Matter street murals. On Saturday, KCTV5's Greg Payne took a look into when and where you can expect to see the displays.

True, I think they sold it the wrong way.

If you look at this as an ANTI-Graffiti effort, it might be worth it.

Maybe,

But then why does KCMO have to be involved at all??? Put it on private property and there's no problem or need for the mayor and council to puff up their chest about this.

I consider myself a progressive moderate. I'm not a Trump fan by any stretch but I'm afraid the shutdowns at the hands of democratic leadership, the protestors and the BLM movement have caused me to learn towards voting for him this November. Enough is enough.

Black lives don't matter at the hands of other black murderers. KC has a record breaking number of homicides this year. The majority of them are black men murdering other black men, black women and black children.

Barf.....Too much race talk. Liberals are obsessed with race, and our turning people racist.... if you made me eat pizza every night l, and forced me to support Pizza Parlors I would end up hating Pizza.

The blacks should be embarrassed that something like that has to be placed on the street. It creates a greater delta between you and society. White liberals treat black like children and have low expectations..... this is the shiny object you give dumb people.

Hey any black people of intelligence reading this ? If so you know your lesser brethren are taking advantage of an exaggeration of a situation involving an individual that refused to cooperate with law enforcement. Wake the others up, the problem is not with white people. We have had our hand out since the mid 1960s ya all just keep biting it. Really, take a hard honest look.

The BLM crowd is destroying all big cities, including KC. Why don't they stick to what they do best: having kids out of wedlock that they ignore, taking welfare, destroying Section 8 housing, EBT fraud, and drinking malt liquor?

BLM murals should be confined to the shithole ghetto.

Certainly does leave a mark. Not many areas of the Metro can't be labeled as " there is where a Black person killed someone." While BLM blows the horn of Racism, cops killing and unfair practices of the White Straight Folks. Dropping the 1,000 bill while picking up a penny. To solve anything, one must address the actual problems and actors. We tend to blame.

I know right? Talking about race is racist.

That looks so good for our 25 million tourists doesn't it. Don't forget to write the rest of what BLM is all about and that is...BLM is brought to you by Susan Rosenberg a convicted terrorist. You want to make sure you support your local and nationwide underground terrorists.

There isn't enough room on the streets in the Ghetto to paint a BLM "mural" every place that one Black has killed another, is there?

Wouldn't that require just painting every inch of every street and sidewalk in the Inner City solidly black?

Whatever happened to that ban the naacp put out telling the kolored folks to leave Missouri and never come back?

No one gives a shit about black lives, especially blacks.

This is an election year.

The fake plague, the floyd hoax, the bolshevik riots masquerading as protests, mail voting are all democratic and globalist weapons being deployed to defeat trump.

KCMO doesnt have the tax payer funds for this. Let private donations pay. You are furloughing the city workforce yet paint BLM all over town, which will have to be repainted a hundred times and those damn bike lanes with all their concrete barriers that will have to kept up!!! Meanwhile pot holes everywhere, KCMO doesnt have the funding for this!!!

Murals? More like vandalism created by Marxists.

Doesn't the Black Lives Matter grafitti look awesome.

Great way to mark you territory and tell tourists and sububuranites to avoid Kansas City at all costs.

KC will go bankrupt as Lucas is destroying fifty years of progress.

You better sell KC bonds fast as they will soon be worth 50 cents on the dollar or less.

Property values have already dropped 25%.

Small businesses are pulling out as they cannot afford to incur riot shutdowns, looting and arson.

"Vandalism by Marxists", you mean like pouring hundreds of millions of Russian dollars into GOP Campaigns through the NRS in 2016?

Can't the City Leaders just pat Black "Artists" lots of Taxpayer's Money to NOT PAINT SHIT on City Streets?

9:58 - bullshit. Prove it up or shut it up.

@10:17 - Proven fact - both in even the redacted version of the Mueller Report and during the Trial and Conviction of the unregistered Russian Agent who directed the flow of money through Deutsche Bank. Now that the Bank's records have to be turned over to a Grand Jury, the Truth will soon be rubbed in all Trump Supporter's faces.

The Truth will also probably return the Republican Party to their traditional and proper role of a lonely voice whining in the Wilderness.

Moogah! Moogah!

10:56 we've waited 7+ months after that impeachment fiasco. How much longer should everyone wait for the "truth" to come out?

These blm traitors all need to be tried for treason and lynched I wouldn’t waste the cost of a bullet on them .Try this shit in Russia they would’ve already wiped them out. Oh I forgot there’s no niggers in Russia

The murals make me feel comfortable being prejudice against blacks

@11:13, Trump's Legal Team (that we taxpayers foot the bills for) has been fighting tooth and nail daily to keep the Truth from coming out, but after the seven months you mention, and after exhausting every legal venue INCLUDING the Supreme Court, they have lost for the seventeenth or eighteenth time, so there will be Truth, for a change, at some point.
Probably after his loss in November.

After the Dems get their way on income taxes to pay for their socialist wet dreams, all workers' take-home pay will be cut in half. Their main goal is to divide America into sub-groups and then grovel to those groups with lies. After they get voted in, they screw over those groups by taxing them to death, letting illegals take the jobs of U.S. citizens, and letting violence in their Dem-run cities reach epic proportions. You can't even get a Dem to talk badly about Antifa or the violence against innocent citizens/law enforcement or other people's property.

No, I think they mean the art work looks like vandalism. In other words, it’s dog shit. As
for the funding, your mayor will be making you pony up for the cost.

On the other topic, when the Durham Report comes out, we’ll see how many of your Democrat sisters and brothers are going to the hole. Will be run when the indictments start flying.

You’re in for a tough Fall.

Me too. Do you suppose we can get some
Of that good house music these fine black artists have provided as well. Perhaps set viewing of the murals aka vandalism to music aka dog shit noise.

This is complete ignorant bullshit. Dems are like the national media. They accuse first then try to put together some facts that aren’t there.

12:00-the truth according to Adam Schiff. We saw that truth during the impeachment hearings. You and your cronies are some warped pieces of shit.

City workers!!! Remember in November who it was made you lose pay so that we could have yellow BLM signs all over town that very few wanted!!!

This art is relaxing. Reminds me of gators shooting each other and a sense of peace comes over me.

If BLM then why are they slaughtering themselves? I get the notion thet black lives do NOT matter at all. Its just a victim rights movement.

Can't wait till those "Murals" are damaged by "BLUE" paint....

How does this help a damn thing? I realize council doesn’t care that it violates, local, state and federal law and safety standards and a case could be made for the constitution as well. BLM is certainly a political statement and again, I could make a case that it’s a religion. It is patently illegal to support one over another with public money or on public space. The incompetence of this council is truly beyond belief.
