Murder Of The Kansas City Tamale Man
There's a deplorable myth in Kansas City that so many victims of local homicide somehow "deserved" to be killed because of their residence in the urban core or stereotypes about their activities. This is RARELY THE CASE and it's just another rhetorical device used to express the very real level or racism in this town.
However, residents of the urban core of every demographic know better.
To wit, some of the most astute news people and Northeast denizens are noting the victim or a recent homicide.
