Kansas City Black Lives Matter Murals Suffer Skidmarks Amid Odious Culture War
There was absolutely no surprise that Kansas City BLM murals were vandalized.
Even worse, so-called supporters of "law & order" have seemingly embraced the loathsome practice of vandalism which stains the entire metro.
Most of the discussion has been reactionary garbage, here's one bit of wisdom which stands above the rest and remains true to Kansas City's creative spirit:
"Harold Smith, who designed the mural near the intersection of Northwest Briarcliff Parkway and North Mulberry Drive, said that rather than cover and repaint the tire tracks, he suggested embracing the "additions."
"Black culture and Black art has always taken Black pain and the things that happened to create more art," he said.
