Kansas City Compassionate White Women
There is no social justice or progress in this nation without the help of compassionate white women. This is not a bad thing and notice that amid the "Justice For Trayvon" crowd there were more than a few white ladies helping the cause.
Local "Justice For Trayvon" Protestors Stayed Winning
In Kansas City, the protestors, speakers at rallies and angry youngsters staring down TV news cameras reminded us that the Civil Rights movement is still alive . . . Like it or not.
Anti-Crime Activist Alonzo Washington Directed Kansas City's Conversation On Race Relations Amid Zimmerman Rioting Fear
Alonzo Washington directed the mainstream media conversation amid rioting fear, he helped to raise awareness while others were afraid to speak out and he urged calm . . . More than anybody else in Kansas City, Alozno Washington was at the forefront of the Zimmerman Acquittal Aftermath.
3rd District Committeeman Pat Clarke Led The Effort To Organize Non-Violent Protest
Mr. Clarke helped to bring people together to express their emotions in a constructive way . . . Even better, Mr. Clarke was part of the effort to focus community unrest toward LOCAL HOMICIDE PREVENTION efforts . . . In Kansas City, the idea put forth that preventing local homicides is part of the current civil rights struggle seems encouraging.
KCPD Kept The Plaza On Lockdown and SAFE On The Night Of The Verdict
Unreported by mainstream news . . . KCPD kept the Plaza on lockdown Saturday night and throughout the weekend. This strategic move recognized community tension and moved into place quickly to keep merchants and Plaza denizen safe. I don't know why it's being treated as a secret, the move was actually very smart.
Winning Conspiracy Author Jack Cashill Increased His Street Cred Among The Conservative Set
The extremists and the self-righteous have rallied around Jack Cashill and his ultra-Conservative perspective on the trial. He's writing a book on the hot mess that will be widely anticipated among his growing number of fans.
Jeneé Osterheldt Offered Her Best Writing Of The Year On Zimmerman Fear
"I’m afraid of the next George Zimmerman" is the definitive Kansas City column when it comes to acquittal reaction for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. The column could be the greatest writing we've ever seen from Hoopz and the fact that reader reaction was uncensored by Dead Tree Media propelled the work to even greater heights. Ms Osterheldt/Hoopz has long taken criticism for her flowery prose but her perspective amid so many talking heads seems both nuanced and insightful.
KCPD Chief Forté Led The Kansas City Call For Civil Responsibility
The Chief was the FIRST public official to confront fear in anticipation of the verdict and his leadership is mostly responsible for calm in Kansas City amid a very tense situation.
Mayor Sly James Anti-Gun Pitch Amid Zimmerman Reaction Ruckus Earned Praise From Far Left Kansas City Democrats
A Statement from Mayor James on the Zimmerman Verdict released moments after the news was EXACTLY the stuff that "progressive" white people wanted to read. It was sentimental, doesn't really take a stand on much and uses a tragic situation to push a leftist political agenda. If Kansas City is still a decidedly Democratic Party controlled town . . . Then this political rallying cry was exceptionally effective.
Fat Zorro George Zimmerman Stays Winning Because He's Still Alive And Out Of Jail
George Zimmerman is the chubby Zorro of the modern era. He's a vigilante fighting in the dark and celebrated among the largely ignorant townsfolk who might not understand the cultural logics of hero worship actually reinforce the power of their oppressive landowners . . . But I digress . . . George Zimmerman stays winning because he walked away from a street fight alive and out of the courtroom scot-free. Only anti-intellectual nimrods like Elisabeth Hasselbeck would whine and argue that is life is now "ruined" . . . Safety and earning a living are problems that are miniscule compared to death or hard time in the can.
Dead Tree Media Mostly Turned Away Readers For Fear Of Mean Comments
After public pressure KC Dead Tree Media finally opened up comments on their columns but news stories were off limits and totally missed public reaction . . . At a time when more and more people are turning away from the newspaper, Dead Tree Media did its best to continue the trend because of fear of real public reaction.
Angry Old White Dudes Still Mad Even After Their Guy Won
I don't notice that angry white people are any happier amid the outcome of this verdict. The cultural zeitgeist is simply turning away from the old school "Mad Men" / Angry Grandpa way of doing things.
Even the cable TV discourse is caught up in the flux of change and white babies now in the minority which only serves to highlight the fact that the era of the angry, old white dude who owns the last word is passing into history.
As always . . . These rankings are based on TKC SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH and they are the most accurate in Kansas City. Natch.
