“Kansas City’s Board of Police Commissioners gets a verbal beating at a recent town hall.
An activist delivered an impassioned speech during a meeting of the Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners that has gone viral on social media.
The board’s monthly meeting ended abruptly after a stream of activists, clergy and community groups demanded the board take a vote to remove Rick Smith, the police chief in Kansas City, Missouri.
But before it ended, one of those activists, Keiajah Brooks, called out Smith for using photo opportunities with Black children for PR purposes while being complicit in their “oppression and denigration.
Twitter recently made a rule against propagating attraction to minors as a sexual orientation or identity, which is no longer allowed on the platform. This is after a couple of years of tolerance to MAPs ( minor-attracted people ). For many, it is impressive that such tolerance happened in the first place. A day or two after I heard this, I saw the interview given by Gilberto Gil to Estação Sabiá, in which he says that no movement in a progressive direction is irreversible, because the reactionary forces are permanent. As long as they do not cease to exist, such forces will eventually find an environment conducive to their growth and propagation. I’m not saying that the Twitter MAPs are reactionary, but such an observation by Gil is interesting because the movement for the acceptance of attraction to minors is permanent, dating back to the fifties at least.
