TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE WALDO WALMART BATTLE!!!
Last night Kansas City's last white working-class enclave in the urban core won a major victory.
NBC Action News: A plan for Walmart to occupy the old Bingham Middle School site was struck down by Waldo residents on Thursday night.

But here's the real news . . .
THE CROWD OF WALDO WALMART OPPOSITION FACED WEIRDO ACCUSATIONS OF RACISM LAST NIGHT IN A TRAGIC OUTBURST!!!
As always . . . A KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTER brings us all the deets:
"I can't believe I just watched someone scold a couple ELECTED officials for actually listening to the overwhelming majority of their constituents. She accused them of caving in to the opposition of a Walmart coming to Waldo. I didn't know that while quietly attending a meeting to support the will of a neighborhood I would be called a racist and benefactor of white privilege. I am sorry to see her teach her kids how to perform a drive by shooting off of the mouth and then run. She literally walked out after calling everyone a racist for their logical opinions then burst into tears in the hallway. If you are going to go that route, have the guts to stick around afterwards."
And there it is . . . Accusations of racism often cloud so many Kansas City discussions and they don't just start from the d-bags on this blog.
Nevertheless, credit to some of the people of Waldo for fighting back a box store despite a myriad of challenges and very little support from politicos.
