Remembering the MLK riots in KC
Kansas City's long standing legacy of racism is currently on display in USA Today.
A local gives a bit of historical perspective on the Kansas City following the assasination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. which not so surprisingly informs us that (contrary to what most local media outlets report) - Not all racial discrimination and injustice was stopped by Lyndon Johnson.
Also, I like this photo of Kansas City in the not so good old days . . . It depicts minorities being chased away from City Hall in droves; in a metaphorical sense it reminds me a lot of the Funkhouser Administration - Only the approach was a lot more direct with much less a lot less smug, arrogant and condescending PR tactics.
