TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! DERRON BLACK WANTS TO RAISE CONSCIOUSNESS OF KANSAS CITY VOTERS



Derron Black was cheerful, energetic, affable and almost soft-spoken at a recent Kansas City political forum held at the Bluford Library.

With voter turnout at around 10% in the last Kansas City election, it's clear that politics as usual won't persuade the people of Kansas City - To that end, Derron Black hopes that attempting to touch the hearts and minds of local voters might awaken the local electorate from their malaise.

"In this community and all over the city actually, there seems to be a general sense that residents don't have a voice that will be heard by our elected officials," Derron Black said. "We hope to host more of these community forums and conversations so that people will have an opportunity to be heard and so that we know what's really important to the people of Kansas City."

Today, Derron Black entered a not guilty plea to misdemeanor charges stemming from a disruption of the State Of The City Speech by Mayor Sly James.

I asked Mr. Black about the incident and recalled that I had noticed he was visibly upset at the outset of the Mayor's remarks. He offered some important insight into the events of that day and provided some interesting detail regarding the Section 3 office next door at the Lincoln Building that is soon to undergo a great deal of upheval. Moreover, he spoke to the attitude that he witnessed that day which evoked his interruption.

Derron Black: "It was just hard to see all of the palm-pressing, smiles, and upbeat jazz music while the surrounding community faces dire economic circumstances."

Again, it's important to note that Mr. Black has apologized to the Mayor and the public for his interruption of the State Of The City Speech and he seems committed toward building on his previous record of community involvement. When asked if he's doing a sort of "re-branding" effort, Mr. Black noted his previous work in local politics.

Derron Black: "It's not about re-branding, it's about continuing the work that we've been doing and helping voices outside of the political mainstream to be heard."

In that spirit, the overwhelming support of outsider and somewhat controversial Missouri political candidate MD Alam makes sense.

Finally, I finished a quick interview with Derron Black by noting that Mayor Sly James raised more than $1 million in his previous campaign and will certainly have a fundraising advantage for his next Mayoral run. In Kansas City, money rules politics, Mr. Black paused a moment to reflect and offered this response:

"If I wanted to be a traditional candidate and work as part of the establishment then that might be a problem," Mr. Black said. "But what we're hoping to do is raise the level of consciousness among all of the people of Kansas City. We want to work to make everyone in this city realize that they have a voice that deserves to be heard."

At the conclusion of the interview near Prospect Ave., Derron Black was greeted time and again by enthusiastic voters despite the low turnout numbers.

With 10% turn out to vote. Any organized opposition to the status quo has at least a fighting chance.

Derron Black: I will tell the poop the whole poop and nothing but the poop so help my poop.

He's selling some shit I don't really think KCMO needs.

Why say there "seems to be a general sense" - why not be truthful and just say "residents don't have a voice?"

Sly is toast or he at least ate Toast which would explain the extra carbs stored around his midsection and below. That rotund fella hasn't got a chance in hell. You can't shit on people and tell them their covered in chocolate; they'll know something is up from the stench!

If Derron can find more unique ways to attract attention without getting arrested then he has a chance to get more of the vote than he expected. He should not be dismissed, he could be more than just a spoiler.

Anything is possible. Does he have a fake birth certificate, fake SS number, fake selective service card? Evidently he causes tingles to go up some peoples legs. How is he on Hope and Change? Tee Hee Hee!

Shahid Abdullah, aka Derron Black is another candidate modestly qualified to walk and breathe with a streak of violence and a deeply ingrained sense of entitlement.

He appeals to those cradle to grave burdens borne by the ever decreasing middle class who do no work today.

Yeah, he could win.

Think about this KC Voters -- Is there really any other alternative to 4 more years of Sly James as Mayor?

Sly has already trampled over the voters in his first 4 years. Just think of what he can do with another.

Are you talking about Obama?

Don't always agree with Chuck but I have to admit that I think a lot of people with follow his point of view in KC elections. That's why we have so many people leaving.

Drive Eastwood traffic way from 435 to Gates on Paseo. You won't see but one or two tax paying businesses per mile. I think Derron epitomizes KCMO. It is a big brown log circling the bowl waiting for that second flush to send it into the Blue River.

Thank you Tony for offering a much more balanced view of this young man. I refuse to believe everything I see on TV as gospel truth and you do a great job in providing an alternative source of information.

Keep up the great work.

Hope u he can live up to his promises.

Derron is a real problem for Sly in his reelection attempt. Like it or not, but Derron can/will pull 20-25% of the black vote, which leaves a real opportunity for another candiate to exploit the issue.

I think white people will turn out to the polls in record numbers on the next election.

Tony you are starting to sound like Dan "Gone Mild" Ryan and his full-throated campaign for Crazy Mark Funkhouser, when you write about Mr. Abdulla or Black or whatever it is this week!

Yes Kansas City, you should be mighty proud, if this NIGGER is the best you can muster for public office or anything else, for that matter. The guy is a worthless, piece of shit in a suit. No education, no job, no prospects, no NOTHING. Just your typical, Kansas City blue gum, NIGGER.

"Raising consciousness"? Shit, this jig couldn't raise a stiff on a wedding dick.
