Activist Drags Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners: ‘Stop Using Black Children as Photo Opportunities’

A young, Black activist has gone viral after a video of her dragging the members of the Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners.

Keiajah Brooks attended the meeting, and when it was her time on the mic, she held nothing back — savagely roasting each member of the board.

“Fair warning,” Brooks begins. “I’m not nice, and I don’t seek to be respectable. I’m not asking y’all for anything. Cause y’all can’t and won’t be both my savior and my oppressor.”

It’s soon election time. The time where politicians and city officials take to the streets to meet and greet civilians, using the most oppressed, vulnerable community members for gratuitous photo ops.

Brooks is not here for it.

“I don’t want reform. I want to turn this building into luxury, low cost housing. These will make some really nice apartments to me. Firstly, stop using Black children as photo opportunities because they’re cute now. But in 10 years, they’re [a] Black male suspect in a red shirt and khaki shorts. Eating cookies and drinking milk with children does not absolve you. Okay?”

She continued: “Your complicity in their oppression and denigration, Rick Smith — ’cause Kansas city will spend more on police than education and then try to encourage children to feast with their oppressors. Y’all are really weird. It’s asinine to be called radical or homegrown terrorists,” she says, later adding, “So I’m not here begging anything of solace, white folks, and self preserving Black folks.”
