Activist KJ Brooks is now a worldwide sensation after a clip of her castigating police earned "viral" status but her activism is well known throughout Kansas City.
She was a leading member of the "People's City" tent protest on city hall steps and she has garnered notoriety for her megaphone and incisive commentary.
To wit and just sent our way moments ago . . .
CHECK KJ PROTESTING THE RECENT KANSAS CITY PREZ TRUMP PARADE AND HURLING INSULTS AT MAGA SUPPORTERS!!!
To be fair, while her insults may seem shocking, her speech is constitutionally protected and in line with the acerbic rhetoric of the day both online and among the crowd.
The video only features her face for a moment but after an analysis of her IG feed and some real world quotes, we feel safe in linking this clip.
Again, for the past few weeks Ms. Brooks has used her megaphone to advocate against police brutality. And in a recent chat she explained her hairstyle change from "locs" to a weave which is her choice. And we agree, she looks great however she chooses to wear her hair!!!
More importantly . . .
This clip offers a more complete view of the current level of the Kansas City discourse and how this cowtown has become increasingly divided despite a worsening economy, record high murder rate and city hall budget that's edging toward bankruptcy. All of these problems should inspire us to work with each other to realize solutions; instead it seems that only casting blame and insults earns widespread acclaim.
